Seems as though developers are truly taking the whole "there's an app for everything" ideal to the limit, as one company has demonstrated with their Security Cam App made for the iPhone. The best part? It's sound trigger activated. So, take that noisy would-be thieves!
Of course, if you're like us, you immediately see the problem with this sort of app. Not only must sacrifice your iPhone (a $200+ device), but you must also secure somewhere hidden, then retrieve it in order to see if shots were taken. However, this is the iPhone application we've seen that skillfully integrates the included microphone, and for that, we must give them some kudos for including that thoughtful functionality.
The Security Cam App can be scheduled to take photos between intervals of minutes, or every time it picks up background noise from the iPhone's microphone. These two modes can be run simultaneously and embeds a watermarked time-stamp whenever the picture is taken.
If anything, we imagine it'd be a great tool to catch your roommate who keeps stealing your cookies and keeps claiming it's a leprechaun. Or you could get your Paranormal Activity hunt on. Available for $0.99 via iTunes.
