    Hi All,
    I have certain queries regarding the following iPhone SDK support in 3rd party app:
    1) Can capture snapshot while showing the Live Video in my application?
    2) Can programatically enable/disable the audio?
    3) Can iPhone library be accessed programmatically so that I can store an image from recived from the server to user defined location.
    4) Application should be minimized to the tray, when event triggers the programming window resumes.Can we do this ? I think back ground 3rd party application are not allowed in iPhone.
    5) Playback control, to play, pause, next track, previous track etc. Can this be done using SDK.?
    6)Is it possible to access iPhone file system using SDK.?

    Only just starting out myself but I can answer one question

    4) You can't minimize anything, the iPhone has one running application, when you press the home button then for example your application is unloaded from memory and in everything must be saved within I believe 5 seconds, any application taking longer than that to save will be force quit by the iPhone.

    Not sure about the others, as I said I'm just starting out but remember reading about applications running on the iPhone

    1) Sort-of: you can show the standard take a picture UI, but you have no control over it.
    2) Your own apps audio? Yes. The over system-wide audio? No
    3) You can add photos to the photo library I think
    4) No. Absolutely not.
    5) No. You cannot control or access the iPod app at all
    6) Partially: you can access your own apps sandbox area, but no other apps areas or the over system locations.
