Earlier this month we introduced to you Silent Camera by Toysoft which helps to mute your camera. Now, Devcellent Solutions let us know about their latest app for BlackBerry called ShutUp Camera. This similar app lets users take pictures using the BlackBerry native camera app without the shutter sound. Unlike other apps that takes low resolution screenshots to silently take pictures, ShutUp Camera lets you use the same BlackBerry Camera app but simply mutes the shutter sound.
That means, you can still use all the familiar features of the native Camera App and take HIGH RESOLUTION photos but of course without the shutter sound. ShutUp Camera is available only for OS 7.1 devices and is reasonably priced at only $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.
Having tested this on 3 of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 OS 7.1’s, this application DEFINITELY WORKS!
However, on our BlackBerry 9790 running various OS’s, it does not seem to work at all 🙁
This application is very simple to use, although like other applications for other OS’s, this requires you to use the application or press mute on the menu before it works. Otherwise, on the BlackBerry Bold 9900, it works like a charm.
Note: An unfortunate thing happened – according to AppWorld policy all silent camera related apps has to be removed from sale. Therefore, its no longer have ShutUpCamera app in AppWorld.
Damn. What is wrong with RIM? We are now hoping that the developer will actually put it onto Mobihand or something, because, its such an awesome and working application!
