Apple has acquired SnappyLabs, the one-man app developer behind SnappyCam, a high-speed continuous shooting photography app for iOS. Apple hasn’t confirmed the deal yet, according to TechCrunch. SnappyCam’s developer, John Papandriopoulos, developed SnappyCam, an app that enabled recent-model IPHONEs to continuously shoot frames at up to 60 frames per second. Alternately, SnappyCam could operate in time-lapse mode, grabbing as little as one frame per hour. SnappyCam was a $1 application and saw success this past summer, prior to the release of either iOS 7 or the new IPHONE 5s. Photography has become a key differentiator between smartphones as they’ve become ubiquitous accessories, and Apple put the photographic capabilities of the IPHONE 5s center-stage when it introduced the new model this fall. The IPHONE 5s has a larger sensor, \ »True Tone\ » flash, auto-image stabilization and slow-motion video capabilities. It can also capture images in a continuous burst mode, though it does so significantly slower than SnappyCam could – 10 photos per second. Source: TechCrunch
