At the end of the past month i’ve posted about flashlight 4g for iPhone 4.Immediately after the iPhone 4 was released, Michael D’Ulisse of MoreBluSky came up with the idea to make an app that used the iPhone 4’s camera flash as a Flashlight.
Apple has decided to allow iPhone 4 flashlight apps after originally saying they were “inappropriate use of hardware”.
The developer then reached out to Apple’s Phil Schiller who promised to meet with the App Review department to review their policy. D’Ulisse’s arguments must have been convincing as after some consideration, Apple has approved MoreBluSky’s Flashlight – For iPhone 4 app as well as the many other iPhone 4 flashlight apps in their approval queue. Each app, however, must include a disclaimer that continued use of the iPhone’s LED may dramatically decrease battery life.
