    Just saw this Walgreens commercial and had to share this screen shot. What's wrong with this picture? ImageUploadedByiCafe1346276880.389337.jpg

    He's holding the phone incorrectly, never get a signal with that grip :D

    Seriously, tho...
    Image is reversed, buttons on right side of iPhone....
    They must have photoshopped the screenshot.

    Sorry for the confusion.
    I meant the screen display on the device
    Since the entire image is obviously reversed (volume +- and silent/ring) buttons on wrong side of device, the screen content of said device would be backwards.
    They must have photoshopped correct image in there.

    Yeah, that makes more sense. But then the video itself would have been inverted, and so they would've had to go frame by frame and fix the image on the phone's screen to make it right. Why go through all that trouble? I'm baffled. Flummoxed even. It's vexing I say!

    Confounded as well, I forgot u said it was a commercial...

    Perhaps they had the Dev reverse the app on the iPhone screen so they could flip the image once shot, solely for he consternation it would cause on Internet forums....:D

    Sorry, that was too rude. Hope nobody saw it.
    There is an extra digit. You should send this to "photoshop disasters"

    I don't think people are allowed to use iPhones in adverts. In the UK they always use the last generation to advertise. Like now they use the 4S in these betting adverts instead of the iPhone 5.
