mergAV permission dialog

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Recently had an update to an existing app rejected because the app asked permission without explaining the purpose.  I believe that the dialog is produced as a result of including mergAV in the build.  An automatically generated dialog is handy… but in this case I agree with the reviewer. My app scans QR codes so I understand that it asks the user for permission to use the camera. And the reviewer probably would have thought that obvious enough. Unfortunately, in a separate dialog, it also asks for permission to use the microphone.  (Which the app doesn’t use.)

"This application requires access to the device’s microphone.”

I imagine this is what triggered the rejection.  Is there a way to edit this dialog so that I can get past the review?

Re: mergAV permission dialog

Answering my own question… I now see a note at the bottom of mergAVCamCreate that says

"If only capturing barcodes or photos set the microphone to empty before calling mergAVCamCreate to avoid app store rejection.”

So apparently my problem has a solution. At least as soon as I figure out how to set the microphone to “empty”  :- )

Re: mergAV permission dialog

Should be:

mergAVCamSet “microphone”, empty

You may also need to add a custom plist template with a more specific reason why you want video permission. See http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/881992-creating-a-custom-plist

Cheers
