Oh, Apple. You just don’t like people doing things with your products that you don’t approve of. The latest culprit is TapTapTap’s Camera+ app, which had been doing just fine in the App Store until the developers tweeted about a hidden feature. By going to a specific URL in Safari, users could enable the use of the iPhone’s volume buttons as the camera flash. Apple caught wind of it, and now the app is no longer available. Other developers have been banned for awhile for such unauthorized features, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens to TapTapTap.
