Selfie or Groupie is the latest trend that has the social networking sites agog. There are loads of Apps for both iOS and Android for taking selfies but all these are camera Apps and need for the user to click or tap a button. Crunchfish has recognised just that and come out with an App called GoCam for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.
Swedish technology startup Crunchfish has developed the App, GoCam which lets users take photos of themselves without having to touch their screens. Crunchfish hopes to GoCam will be game changer in the highly popular selfie Apps market. Crunchfish’s GoCam lets users trigger photos or videos from a distance with just hand gestures. The selfies or groupies can be triggered from a distance of up to 3 meters according to Crunchfish. LG has a similar kind of feature to take selfies using gestures for its flagship G3 but GoCam will be the first App for iOS operating system to give such a feature. Crunchfish plans to release a Android version based on user adoption.
The Malmo Sweden based company said that the GoCam will be available for free for users in Sweden and Australia and would be released whole over the world soon. Gesture control is not new in the technology world but a very resource hungry feature thus limiting its applicability for mobile devices, so it will be a good sign to see how GoCam progresses with its release.
iOS users from Australia and Sweden can download the App from Apple Store and enjoy taking selfies or groupies.
