Camera+ update brings back VolumeSnap

Camera+, the popular photography iPhone app has been updated to include VolumeSnap, the ability to trigger the camera's shutter with the volume buttons - again.

Last year, tap tap tap submitted a version of Camera+ that included VolumeSnap and Apple rejected it. Then tap tap tap tweeted about a hidden easter egg that would turn on the feature with the then-current version. Apple got wind of it and removed Camera+ from the App Store entirely.

Months later, Camera+ was allowed back into the App Store and Apple also also brought the functionality of VolumeSnap to iOS 5. Now, Apple has accepted the update for Camera+ that includes VolumeSnap.

VolumeSnap is back, beyotches!!

Even without VolumeSnap, Camera+ is quite a fantastic photo editing app. One of my favorite features is the ability to expose separately from focus.

Camera+ is available on the iPhone and on sale for $0.99.

Needed to draft you a bit of word to finally say thank you over again on your uuniqe advice you have featured in this article. It was extremely generous of you to allow extensively all many people might have supplied for an e book to get some cash for themselves, precisely since you could possibly have tried it if you decided. Those pointers in addition worked like the fantastic way to comprehend many people have the same desire really like mine to learn way more on the topic of this condition. I'm certain there are several more fun instances in the future for folks who find out your blog post.

Hmm, Camera Genius just had to remove Volume Snap again (after only being enabled for 2 weeks). Makes me think Camera+ may have slipped it by again (for now)

This is what could eventually hurt the iPhone app market badly -- Apple to some extent, dictates the pace of innovation of its developers. Camera+ had a great idea over a year ago that would have helped both their users and their business, and Apple refused it until Apple was ready to do it themselves, at which point the value of the idea to the original developer was almost nil. (No, Camera+ did not use any undocumented APIs, though they were clearly in violation of the SDK agreement at the time, but it is those very terms that are the issue.)
Of course, there is no immediate danger here, since a) developers still make more money on iOS than anywhere else, and b) no other platform has sufficiently gotten their act together. But it is a looming problem.
