Oh Snap! TapTapTap’s Camera+ gets back VolumeSnap functionality

Fans of TapTapTap’s Camera+ (TMA Review) will undoubtedly recall when Apple rejected an update last year that allowed users to snap photos with the volume up button. The reason Apple provided the devs with was:

Your application cannot be added to the App Store because it uses iPhone volume buttons in a non-standard way, potentially resulting in user confusion. Changing the behavior of iPhone external hardware buttons is a violation of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement.

Well now that iOS 5 itself features the very same functionality, it would only make sense that Camera+ gets its mojo back, right? Lo and behold, with a single addition to its most recent update, TapTapTap somehow sneaked in what’s probably the single greatest “What’s New in this Version” blurb ever:

VolumeSnap is back, beyotches!!

Update: It appears that VolumeSnap on Camera+ only works on iOS 5. So if you’re still on 4.3.3 (and earlier) and want the app mainly for this feature, you may want to hold off until you upgrade to the latest OS.
