Camera+ Goes Ahead And Hides Shutter Update From Apple

Share

As we reported earlier this week, Apple rejected the update that Camera+ planned for their app. Not ones to sit on their hands, the developers carried on and hid the update from Apple…

The VolumeSnap feature, the update in question, would have allowed the use of the iPhone’s volume buttons to control the camera’s shutter. This seems like it would’ve been a useful feature to have in Camera+ – here’s Apple’s official reason for the rejection…..

"Your application cannot be added to the App Store because it uses iPhone volume buttons in a non-standard way, potentially resulting in user confusion. Changing the behavior of iPhone external hardware buttons is a violation of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. Applications must adhere to the iPhone Human Interface Guidelines as outlined in the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement section 3.3.7".

Camera+ has circumvented the App Store censors for the moment, at least, allowing users navigate to a site in Safari that unlocks the volume button shutter. A clever fix to preserve another clever fix. This surely won’t last long…. the Apple Police are on the case.
