I have an app on my i-phone that for a given camera, focal length and aperture will calculate the hyper-focal distance. Since I primarily or at least often shoot landscapes this can come in quite handy.

My question is, since the lens, aperture and set focal length are all recorded in the exif data, wouldn't it be a fairly simple matter to allow, lets say the fn button to auto-focus at the hyper-focal distance? Outside of estimating how far something is and then manually focusing on it how does one know they are focused at the Hyper-focal distance?
