It seems another application has been removed from the App Store. Erica Sadun’s Light, was officially removed from the App Store today. This was confirmed even further by Erica’s tweet, “RIP Light.”
The removal seems to be due to some hacking on Erica’s part. It seems that she hacked a little bit of code that allowed her application control the brightness of the iPhone. So, when you opened Light, it would force your iPhone to go to full brightness instead of the brightness that your iPhone was set at in your stock Settings. Then, when you closed the application, your iPhone would go back to the original brightness you had it set at. Although this is a feature that many of us desperately would like to have, it is against Apple’s rules to affect the brightness of the iPhone.
