ACLU releases 'stealth' app to tape NJ police
When users begin video recording, the screen goes black, as if the device is off
The "Police Tape" smartphone app will allow state residents to secretly record police during stops, protect the recordings from being deleted by unhappy officers and report the encounters to civil rights groups, the Star-Ledger reports.
The app's signature feature, according to the paper, is its ability to operate in "stealth mode" while recording. When users begin video recording, the screen goes black, as if the device is off. When audio is being recorded, the app automatically minimizes and disappears.
