Well 1.7 is now under review with apple. Let’s hope for a smooth review and approval process.
The new version has a couple of new features as well as a few minor bug fixes.
Probably the biggest new feature is you can now use the volume buttons as a camera button. So you now can use a physical button on the iPhone to take pictures. This feature was removed from this version at the request of Apple as it did not comply with the user interface guidelines we need to follow. We have been working on improving the thumbnail rendering speed and were able to speed up the thumbnail routine a little when we resubmitted correcting the volume button problem. So I guess that is a plus at least.
Also when you have the location timestamp selected you can now tap on the text and change it to whatever you want. Great for adding captions to photos or when you want to identify a landmark rather than just the area.
You can also see videos in the review interface.
We do have some bad news. One feature we really wanted to implement in this version was the ability to capture video. Unfortunately we don’t have the necessary methods in the developer SDK to add this yet. We submitted a request to apple for them to add the routine that will allow us to capture videos. Hopefully at some point we can add it if the methods are added to the SDK.
Now we are off to work on version 1.8.
