Taking pictures on your iPhone gives you a great deal of data embedded in to your photos. Location, camera type, exposure, even camera orientation. But what if you want more. Well, MetaPhoto (currently available on the iPhone) aims to further enrich your photos. Using the Urban Mapping API, MetaPhoto looks up a great deal of information about the area a photo was taken and adds it to the photos header.
Seamless is a food ordering and delivery tool that connects buyers with sellers and takes a percentage of the sale. This alone is not a revolutionary idea; using the income that comes from sales commissions to avoid annoying advertisements that turn off users while collecting data on restaurants and eating habits is pretty smart. The goal is to leverage the data they are collecting and become a search resource that can rival companies like Yelp. Seamless has partnered with over 9,500 restaurants in 45+ cities and has released the Seamless API to give developers a chance to explore integration possibilities.
