This SDK allows for the addition of Kairos Facial Recognition to iOS apps using Objective-C programming language. The documentation includes the SDK and sample project. To access the SDK the user is required to have an XCode iOS app project targeting 6.1 or greater, and an iOS device with a camera and internet connectivity.
We all know we can search web pages for text, but many services are looking to go above and beyond with features like location and face tagging. The big downside to these features is that they rely on end users have to manually enter in the appropriate data. Really, when was the last time you tagged all the people in the 200 photos you just uploaded to Facebook? To help automate the process of face recognition, face.com have just opened their API.
Taking photos is great but what good are all those pictures if you can't share them with others? We come across lots of photo mashups and below we'll take a look at some of the best that have recently been added. These mashups share and search for images geographically, view pictures posted on Instagram photo steams and even push photos between phones. Popular APIs such as the Flickr API and GoogleMaps API are featured multiple times as expected. Meanwhile relative newcomer Instagram, which we previously covered, is proving to be increasingly popular with developers appearing three times.
