Google launches three experimental photo apps for Android, iOS


CNET/CBS Interactive

Google on Monday launched three experimental photography apps for iOS and Android to test experimental technology like object recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding, and decoding technologies.

Google is calling the three apps, Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies, part of “appsperiments” inspired by Google’s Motion Stills app.

The first app Storyboard for Android transforms videos into single-page comic layouts. The app allows users to shoot video, and then it will automatically select what it believes are interesting frames, lays them out, and applies visual effects.

Selfissimo! for Android and iOS is an automated selfie photographer that snaps a black and white photo each time you pose. Once you tap the screen to begin a photoshoot, the app encourages you to strike a post and captures a photo when you stop moving.

Lastly, Scrubbies for iOS allows users to manipulate the speed and direction of video playback to produce video loops that highlight actions, capture funny faces, and replay moments. Scrubbing with one finger plays the video. Scrubbing with two fingers captures the playback so you can save or share it.

The new photo features could presumably make it into Google’s future stable consumer app releases in the future. Google’s other experimental app, Motion Stills for Android and iOS, allow users to turn Live Photos into smooth GIFs for sharing on the web.

On Monday, Google also released AR stickers for Pixel 2 owners that allow users to drop augmented reality characters onto photos and video. The new feature was released as part of Android 8.1.


Google says these are the best Android apps of 2017 but do you agree?

Google names most popular and best Android apps of the year.

Google cracks down on apps that snoop on you, even if they’re not in Play Store

Unless apps come clean about the personal data they collect, Google will slap them with Safe Browsing warnings.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
