    Default iBooks system brightness control. Unfair?
    In apple's iBooks app you can adjust the system brightness. But they don't allow other developers to do that right? I seem to recall all of the flashlight apps in the app store pretty much sucking because they can't set maximum brightness.


    So is it fair for apple to bend the rules in their apps but hold third party developers to a different standard?

    Lol, no thats not unfair.

    Its no different than any of the other regulations on apps. Its their product they cant do anything they want with it.

    True but it does not come with thephone or the ios. IRS in the app store also the point is they added brightness control outside of settings in another app. If it's ok for them to do it in iBooks why can't other apps like a flashlight app have a slider or something too? That's what I think doesn't make sence.

    Also I understand they can do what they want, that wasn't the point. Of course they can get away with it but The point is it's hypocritical and IS unfair.

    Welcome to Apple ;~) they've done it for years allowing their own apps to multitask and dev apps were s.o.l.
