The Future of Digital Cameras

Digital cameras have so far stayed out of the smartphone sphere. While smartphones have cameras and social sharing features, digital cameras have remained purely for photography. Until now.

A New Era of Cameras

Samsung has recently released news of their Galaxy camera, which is basically a digital camera in the front, and a smart phone from the back.

The 16.3 megapixel Galaxy is powered by Andriod 4.1 Jelly Bean, and has 3G, 4G, and dual-band WiFi connectivity abilities. This allows users access to a whole range of abilities that were previously closed to digital camera users.

Considered the holy grail of mobile app development, developing an app for the iOS platform is not as impossible as some may thing. Granted, it is harder than developing for Android or Windows Phone, but it is still doable.

The first step to developing for iOS is to decide what you will be developing and how you are going to go about developing the app. If you’re not an experienced programmer, now may be a good time to put your ideas back into the reality glass. If you don’t have thousands of dollars, developing an Angry Birds or Words with Friends style game may be dreaming a bit too big. Pick an idea that will not cost too much time and resources. If you are completely naïve, get some expert opinions from a forum online.

Once you have decided what your app will do, it’s time to get the programming … Read the rest
