We have been asked by AppWorld to remove ShutUpCamera app from AppWorld unless we change it so that there is a shutter sound! We have been referred to this link: Bill Summary & Status - 111th Congress (2009 - 2010) - H.R.414 - All Information - THOMAS (Library of Congress)
We respect the policy adhered by AppWorld and see what we can do to mitigate this as there are some similar apps out there.

All the other OSes allow shutter muting, RIM seem to think all their customers are pervs, thats so stupid.
Its not the law outside the States and other OSes allow it, RIM isn't in a position to be removing apps other platforms have when their main problem is a shortage of apps.Intergalactic superhero... Powers stronger around a red sun...

Im hoping someone at RIM knows what they're doing and realises all other OSes allow camera muting, that not all their customers are pervs, and that if they want to use obscure US rules to justify app removals, they should do it for the US stores only.
Its ridiculous to run promotions offering free apps in America only, and then also ban apps all over the world based on American laws, its just ridiculous.
RIM need to get their thumbs out, devs have brought a function that should have been native to the ecosystem, and once again they treat these valuable devs like crap while treating those that bring sub par apps to the ecosystem like royalty.
I hope Devcellent will look to provide their app, and future support, via other means, even if its directly through their website.
RIM just keep shooting themselves in the foot, sometimes it really seems like the management and decision makers couldn't organise a drinking contest in a brewery.Intergalactic superhero... Powers stronger around a red sun...

Remember, no matter what, criminals find a way to bypass anything. It is the ordinary people like us who suffer from these stupid laws. I fail to see the difference between Chinese politics and American politics!

I'm pretty sure iPhones take silent pics when the silent switch is flipped on them. Truly this should be allowed on all phones. If someone really wants to be a perv they will still find a way to take photos without a noise. I for one would like this for times when making a noise would be distracting to a crowd, etc.

On every other device its possible. Alec Saunders is aware of this and still is 'looking into' it. Of course RIM will never attract developers when they treat them this way, its disgraceful. Doesn't help treating consumers and customers this way either. But to be expected given the people currently running things, including the people running the developer relations side of things.Intergalactic superhero... Powers stronger around a red sun...
