What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Foto Lineup for macOS

Mac application Foto Lineup

TOKYO (MacHouse) – I have to admit that I’m obsessed with non-fiction crime stories. I’m hardly interested in fictions. America’s Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries were my favorites in the 80s and 90s. These days, I spend quite a lot of time watching Forensic Files and On the Case with Paula Zahn on YouTube. Watching one episode after another, I’ve come up with a new app development idea. How about running a photo lineup with an iOS app? That’s how I’ve ended up with a new application which I submitted to Mac App Store several minutes ago. This new submission is called Foto Lineup.

Combined with an iOS counterpart (Foto Lineup Viewer as freeware available to App Store), Foto Lineup makes a photo lineup system that utilizes the iCloud server as storage. Use Foto Lineup to create photo lineup data so that a crime witness can see a photo lineup with an iOS device (iPhone, iPad) to make positive identification over several suspects. You can create a picture profile with a local image file. You can also take a photo with the FaceTime camera installed on your desktop computer. Give each photo personal characteristics such as gender, skin color, eye color, first name, last name so that you can make a query over data you store on the iCloud server.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Old Talk Desktop Advanced for Mac OS X

Mac application Old Talk Desktop

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Last week, I released Old Talk Desktop, the desktop version of Old Talk, which is currently available for the iPhone at Apple‘s App Store. The new software release that I submitted to Mac App Store several minutes ago is an advanced version of Old Talk Desktop.

Old Talk Desktop Advanced lets you create an Internet meme with ease. I mean, it doesn’t even require a picture of your own. Old Talk Desktop Advanced accesses the iCloud server with a pool of movie screenshots from old movies that have expired and then that are placed in the public domain. Unlike the iOS version, you can overlay as many text labels and comment boxes as you want over a movie screenshot you select. Also, the desktop version lets you submit your Internet memes to the public database hosted by the iCloud server so that other users can view them. Additionally, you can view and rate Internet memes created by other users.   Continue reading
