N.J. ACLU unveils 'stealth' app allowing citizens to secretly record police

http://j.mp/NnAuwT  (NJ)

   "The app, which debuts only for Android devices but will be available
    for iPhones later this month, is simple to use and can be downloaded
    at aclu-nj.org/app. It opens to a screen with three buttons: video
    recording, audio recording and a tutorial on knowing your rights.  The
    app's signature feature is its ability to operate in "stealth mode"
    while recording. When you start video recording, the screen goes
    black, as if it's off. When recording audio, the app automatically
    minimizes and disappears."

Of course, it could also be used to (illegally, in many states) 
record non-police.
