GroupPhotoSync is an Android app I wrote to compete in a challengepost.com competition. The idea is that when you’re out with friends, someone takes a photo of the group, and everyone wants a copy. There should be an easy, automatic way to do to share the photo. Enter GroupShotSync. Everyone in the group runs app. When someone in the group takes a photo, the photo will automatically be downloaded on to the phone of every friend in the group. The app uses gps to figure out groups of friends in close proximity to each other. Each person in the group can see the other people they are connected to, so photos don’t get accidentally sent to strangers.
The app didn’t win the competition, and I never pursued it any further. But it did help me to learn Android programming, which is something I have been meaning to do for ages, so that is a win. The app’s complete source code is available at github.com/jkoomjian/Random-Experiments/tree/master/GroupShotSync
