Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been known for allowing certain applications in the App Store that violates their own rules. In one case, Apple rejected an app called Camera+ that let users take a photo with a the volume button on the iPhone. Apple recently approved an app that has the same function called Quick Snap [iTunes Link]. ?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,? said Apple in an e-mail to Camera+’s developer Tap Tap Tap. ?Changing the behavior of iPhone external hardware buttons is a violation of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement.?
