The Best Apps from Photo Hack Day!


Just a few weeks ago, 300 hackers got together for Photo Hack Day in San Francisco.

With the help of finger sweat-bands and a few pallets of energy drinks, they made 70 hacks in a short 24 hours!

A panel of judges chose three winners to receive funding and make their photo app dreams come true. So what were they?

1.Pics with Friends: A guessing game! Figure out what a portion of a photo from a friend actually is.
2. Sizzly: Turns photo-editing into group collaboration. Post a photo & other users will edit it or vice versa.
3. Just a Second: Turns 1 second phone videos into GIFs that you can post on Tumblr & elsewhere.

Two note-worthy ones are This Is My Cam!, a web app that looks at your Flickr photos’ EXIF data to figure out which cameras you use the most, and Actually, a web app that lets you view a “global stream” of photos from around the web.

To think all those apps were created just to make us photo fans’ lives awesomer! We <3 you, developers.
