My rant last week may not have made Apple change their minds but it has made me feel a lot better. Thanks to all of you who posted in the forum with suggestions and messages of support. We're not giving up and will continue the battle, some of the suggestions were great and have got us thinking how bets to attack this from a different angle.
It's also worth stating that the release version of CamerAlert works perfectly fine under the newly released iOS 8 so you do not need to worry about updating, normal service continues for now at least.
Don't forget to leave reviews, the higher our apps are rated, the more ammunition we have in the fight to secure our place.
CDSlotMount - A use for that legacy CD Drive
I was introduced to this novel mounting solution recently. Many of you will have a CD slot in your dash mounted stereo and this mount aims to make use of it as a device holder.
The cleverly designed mount doesn't interfere with use of the CD drive so you can still play your CD's whilst having sturdy and stable mounting platform.
