    Yo guys, this is probably out of nowhere, but I thought of a really sick idea for an application. I was watching lucky no. slevin and there is a scene when a character snaps a picture of someone while pretending to be talking on her phone. Now, this is somewhat impossible with the iphone, as you would look quite suspicious reaching up to hit the button.

    The idea is a camera application that takes pictures at regular intervals as set by the user. It could even display the usual phone screen. That way, you can take stealth photos, or even use it to just take lots of pictures.

    It's a really simple idea that could potentially be a real money maker. What do you guys think?

    not to mention apple would never approve an app like this just so you can get some side boob shots

    not a bad idea though just would have to be in a jailbroken installer

    My understanding is that (using the public SDK) you cannot tell the phone to take stealth pictures. You can only tell the phone to enter the "Take a Picture Screen" where the user sees the photo preview and must press the camera button.

    You may be able to take stealth pictures with the private SDK, but then Apple has grounds to reject your application from the store.
