Geohot Submits New 'Reactions' App to App Store
Well-known iOS hacker George Hotz (Geohot) is following iOS hacker pod2g
’s footsteps and launching an iOS application into the App Store. Geohot is known for his efforts in finding the limera1n bootrom exploit. If you recall, pod2g created podDJ, a very high-quality DJing application, which we covered here
Geohot has some amazing hacking skills, but what kind of application would he have the interest in working on? A Tweet by MuscleNerd
reveals that the application is called Reactions
(Web page here
). It has been submitted to the App Store and is currently pending launch.
According to the Web page, Reactions will have a Windows 8-like interface. The application will take advantage of both cameras on modern iOS devices at the same time instead of just one. This means you can't pick between the two cameras, and you have
to use both at the same time. The application will capture the “reaction” on your face while you snap a photograph, ergo the name.
Reactions won't let you save the photographs you take; instead, you will have 3 seconds after snapping the photograph to cancel the photograph with the unlabeled cancel button, or else it will be automatically shared to your Facebook for all of your friends and family (and business partners?) to see.
Are you going to grab Reactions when it's out?
