Australian iPhone Camera app SnappyCam Acquired by Apple

Josh Constine at TechCrunch:

Apple has acquired the one-man photo technology startup SnappyLabs, maker of SnappyCam, sources tell me. The startup was founded and run solely by John Papandriopoulos, an electrical engineering PhD from the University Of Melbourne who invented a way to make the iPhone’s camera take full-resolution photos at 20 to 30 frames per second — significantly faster than Apple’s native iPhone camera.

The acquisition has also been confirmed by Re/code. Congrats to John — his app was seriously impressive stuff. Hopefully the tech that underpinned SnappyCam makes its way into iOS soon.
