I don’t really see why this is worth a story

Brian X. Chen, for Wired:

“The company recently approved an iPhone camera app that carries a special feature: the ability to snap a photo by pressing the physical Volume button rather than tapping the touchscreen. Oddly enough, about four months ago Apple banned a top-selling iPhone app for including the same “volume-snap” functionality.”

Just as sometimes apps will not get approval when they should, so sometimes apps will get approval when they shouldn’t. The App Store process is done by humans, and humans make mistakes – in both directions.
