SkiPhone is open source

I got lots of good feedback on SkiPhone this season but I didn't have much time to add features and improve performance. I decided to open source the project in case anyone was motivated to make SkiPhone better. Enjoy!

Say Cheese! - SkiPhone 2.0 Launched


I like to take pictures when I ski, but again it's a pain to do with my phone when I'm wearing gloves. SkiPhone 2.0 solves that problem. Shake up and down to get the same voice actions/answer/hangup behavior from 1.0. Shake front to back to start the camera feature. Once you shake the phone you'll get a preview screen with a 5 second countdown. At the end of the countdown, the app takes a picture and saves it. Let me know how it works for you.

Disclaimer: The photo above is doctored, because I haven't gotten to the slopes yet. I plan on doing extensive field testing this weekend.
