Headphone Controls to Double as iPhone Remote Shutter Release

One of the exciting features of iOS 5 announced by Apple last week is the ability to use the iPhone’s “volume up” button as a shutter button when taking pictures. What’s also neat is that this design choice also means that the “volume up” button on Apple’s headphone remotes can also trigger the shutter, allowing them to be used as remote shutter releases. Say hello to stealthy and/or non-blurry iPhone photographs!

    Wow, what a great idea… That Apple kick-banned the third most popular App Store app for doing via a secret password. Apple claimed it would confuse customers. You know, the people who downloaded the app and entered in the code to enable the feature. Those customers. Good thing Apple stepped in to protect them and steal the market from a developer. Rotten to the core.

    And taptaptap lost something like 6 months of revenue after Apple pulled their app for the same thing? Too bad try don’t have any recourse. Also noteworthy is that half the new features in iOS 5 are things that were already available via third parties. Feel bad for the rest of those developers that are losing out now.
