Quickly And Easily Turn Your Photos Into Links With The New Shoots & Leaves App
If you're anything like me, you probably find yourself sometimes with a camera roll cluttered with all sorts of photos for all sorts of purposes. Well, in that case, you might want to check out Shoots & Leaves. Just released in the App Store, Shoots & Leaves lets you simply shoot a photo and create a link to the photo for you to use anyway you want:
Don't let your camera roll get cluttered with to-do items. Take a picture with Shoots & Leaves, and it gets uploaded to a hosting service. The app gets a link to the uploaded photo and does *something* with it. You decide what that something is.Shoots & Leaves always opens to the camera screen, enabling you to quickly take a photo every time you launch the app. Each photo you take is automatically uploaded to an image hosting service. After uploading, the app generates a link to the photo, which is then sent to the selected action. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Tap the button in the lower left or swipe to the right to change which image hosting service is used for uploading photos. The default is Imgur, but you can also choose from CloudApp and Dropbox. And to change which action receives the links to uploaded photos, tap the button in the lower right or swipe to the left. The default action creates a reminder in the Reminders app, but you can also choose to copy the link to clipboard, email it, send it via text message, open it in Safari, or open it in third-party apps (Omnifocus and Drafts only for now). Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later, Shoots & Leaves is available now in the App Store for the introductory price of $1.99. It will go for its regular price of $2.99 after Sunday, Jan. 5. As you might have figured out, Shoots & Leaves is so named because it lets you simply shoot, then leave. As noted by developer Smart Goat, "It's great for photos that are to-do items and don't need to be saved forever." But the name is also a nod to that popular joke involving bad punctuation and a panda, which "eats, shoots and leaves." Hence the panda in the app's icon. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
