One of the original added value applications for mobile users was the camera phone. The concept for this app dates back to technology developed in the 1950s and the first instant camera phone pictures were first sent in 1997.
With apps like Pinterest, Instagram, and other cropping and sharing apps for photography widely available, it seems that snapping and sending are daily functions for even amateur photographers.
And if appcatch.com users are any indication, the picture-taking, sharing, editing of camera phone pics will continue to be one of the must-have apps on mobile phones.
Appcatch was launched in June of 2012 as the first exclusively free marketplace for Android, iOS, and HTML5 apps and since its inception the site has become home to a variety of networks that launch from its Photography category.
Instapic was one of the first photo apps on appcatch.com and serves as a great example of what can be done using a DIY app building tool and marketplace.
With Instapic you can edit and instantly share photos with friends. The editing function allows for some really inventive clipping and highlighting. There is also a function to set up an Instapic circle with your friends, creating a closed social network for sharing pics.
Appcatch users are also showcasing their photography skills with personal photo apps, and others are using the free app market place to tout their professional photography services. The category is one of the fastest growing on the site.
WeddingsbyVIP offers wedding photography services for the Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago region. The app allows you to view wedding packages, products, and prices. There are image galleries, videos, and a blog for prospective newlyweds to search and explore.
Appcatch initially served as free app market for users of the DIY app builder appsbar.com before expanding to include all app developers who wish to see their apps in the world-wide distribution channel. By making appcatch open to all app developers and app lovers, the company has furthered its goal of truly democratizing the app building and app user experience.
As you have probably guessed, the Social Networking category on appcatch.com is diverse and covers everything from religion to politics, athletic clubs, and art showcases. It is truly a great cross section of ideas and ingenuity, the ideals that are at the heart of appcatch.com's success.
