A strange thing happened tonight with my iPhone 4, I plugged my iPhone into my computer via the usb lead and imported some photos that I had taken that day, then left the pone in to charge up, when I came back to it a couple of hours later I found the screen was showing the the words Dragon fly" and a Dismiss button on the screen, I have no idea what it means or what has caused it, If anyone else has had this happen and you know why then let me know.
Well Apple have pulled the Camera+ app from the App Store because it had an option to enable the volume buttons as a shutter release, Apple's official stance on this is that you can't do this because it might cause confusion to the user. How thick does apple think it's users are? and anyway how many functions does the home button have on an iPhone?
Here is a LIST:
1. Wakes the phone from sleep
2. Closes Apps
3. Moves back to the home screen
4. Opens Spotlight from the home screen
5. Brings up the last used apps list (iOS4)
6. Displays the iPod controls when the phone is locked
7. Activates the Voice Control
That's just the ones I know about.
So this reason they have is just pointless, let the app developers do it and make the software work the way we want.
So if you have version 1.2.1 of Camera+ you can enable the Volume Shutter by going to this address in Safari on your iPhone camplus://enablevolumesnap and if you get confused by using the volume buttons as a shutter button you can disable it by going to this address camplus://disablevolumesnap
I've done it and it works a treat.
Steve Jobs you know that guy on the big screen in the Macintosh 1984 add? That's you that is!!
With Apple pulling out of Macworld this year along with a few others, I got to thinking about what will happen to the event, I thought about the time Apple renamed it self the other year to Apple Inc., The reason they did this was because they no longer just make computers, They make iPods, Monitors the Apple TV as well as there Macs. So will Apple be back with another event in a couple of years showcasing there new innovative products of Apple? or will they just go down the route of all the others with press releases.
I think the era of ooO ooH WOW has gone now.
