The thinking behind the new Android and iOS app Chirp is that if animals in nature communicate through sound, machines should too. And so, the four person Animal Systems team created an app that does just that: no bluetooth, no email, no ‘bumping’ — images and other files are sent using only 2-second sound clips. Read more…

SnappyCam 3 Screen 1

Take a look at that stock camera app on your iPhone. Does a fair job, doesn’t it? Then SnappyCam Pro 3.0 lands on it and makes you realize how truly slow the stock app takes photos. For your reference, it’s about 3-to-6 images per second at full resolution (assuming you’re using an iPhone 5).

It’s all thanks to John Papandriopoulos (who has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering) and his frustration with what he thought to be “inadequate” camera applications (we’re looking at you, stock camera app).
