iPhone app removes stress from brunch photos
A new iPhone application, to be launched tomorrow, is set to revolutionise how we store photos, particularly for users of the social media site in the UAE.
iBuffet which was announced last week, gives your handset the ability to automatically detect when a photo is taken during a brunch. It then files the photo within a special ‘brunch’ folder, before categorising each according to event and variety of food, allowing users to quickly and easily search for a particular shot.
“We all love a good all-you-can-eat brunch, but for too long, photos from these sophisticated weekend dining events have been lost amid the plethora of other boring snaps,” said Terry Thomas lead developer at Dubai-based Expatria Industries.
“The technology we’ve developed for iBuffet can automatically search out for those tell-tale brunch signs, such as two smug heads grinning inanely together at a table, or someone holding a plate containing both sushi and baked beans. It sounds simple, but it’s actually very complicated to ensure absolute accuracy.”
Expatria Industries is now working on another iPhone app that will provide users with maps of some of Dubai’s large brunches, with suggested routes depending on culinary preferences.
“Wasting time wandering around the curry stations when you really want to get to the full English breakfast is soon going to be a thing of the past,” explained Thomas.
