Custom image overlays within iOS

My pro tip for the day, if you want to customise the picture taking component of iOS if you need it for an app, you're only way is to write a full overlay and then in XCode generate a new apple overlay for the graphics.

This can be integrated into Phonegap by creating a plugin for your main class that implements a simple enough interface to allow message and data passing between Phonegap's JS interface to that of your objective C interface.

Do you know of any examples? I'm not an Object-C programmer so this will be a lot more work than I want it to be.

@simpleshadow you could use the Barcode scanner plugin here: as an example of an image taker with a custom overlay ;)
