Snap! The Camera that listens
This is the official Forum Thread for Snap! the Sound Triggered Camera that's recently gone live for Blackberry 10. It's built exclusively for BB10 and is a unique app for taking sound activated photographs. If you've ever had to race a timer to take group shots or just click awkward goofy pictures of yourself, you'll know what I'm talking about. I'm the creator of Snap! and I'd like to use this thread to stay in conversation with you guys, show off new features I'm planning and get your feedback to take Snap! to new levels of awesome.
Before I get into the details of the app, here are a few screenshots to get you salivating.
I'm a photography geek and this idea stemmed from sound triggers that you can use with DSLR cameras, to take extreme high speed shots like glass shattering or balloons popping. Of course phone cameras aren't that fast, yet, but we'll get there and in the mean time a sound trigger is a really fun way to take pictures! Clap your hands, hoot, bark or howl at the moon. Just make a loud sound and Snap! will click a picture. You can adjust the sound threshold from "whisper" to "scream" based on the noise level around you. There are additional cool extensions like a zoom upto 40x, a timer camera and a rule-of-thirds picture composer for the photography geek in you.
A brief description of features:
There are three main camera modes:
- Sound Mode: Make a sound to take a picture. You can adjust the variable sound trigger threshold based on ambient noise.
- Timer Mode: Timer can be set up to 15 seconds to take a picture
- Standard Camera Mode: Standard clicking
- Snap! is BBM integrated
- A grid overlay lets you compose pictures using the rule-of-thirds
- Built in photo gallery
- Zoom upto 40x
- Other standard features like flash and switching cameras
I will be adding more features in future updates and if you guys have any ideas for new features and improvements, please send them my way and stay tuned for updates!! You can reach me on twitter @snap_camera.
