Photo Album Permissions in iOS

Photo Album Permissions in iOS

We recently received an app review from a concerned customer regarding app permissions and privacy. His concern is regarding the need for access to your photos app so that the snapshot feature will work in Live Cams Pro. We would like to reassure everyone that the app is merely saving your snapshots from Live Cams Pro into the photos app. It is a single API function that is built into iOS and we call it to save the snapshot into your gallery. We do not read or use any content from the photo gallery in any way. It’s a one way street for our app to save content. Without this permission the app will still work but it will be denied by iOS when it attempts to save photos or videos.

For the techies in the crowd we’re using “UISaveVideoAtPathToSavedPhotosAlbum” and “UIImageWriteToSavedPhotosAlbum” for videos and snapshots respectively.
