A magical camera that takes other people's photos.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could see through somebody else's eyes or look into the past? Every second of the day people take thousands of photos all over the world and upload them to photo-sharing services like Flickr. Buttons momentography uses these photos and their meta-information to allow you do to just that.
Press the button to take a 'moment' and Buttons will memorize the time and start searching for a photo of that very same instant, taken somewhere else by somebody. Take a 'location' and it will use your location to show you a photo from the past, taken close to where you are now.
Buttons is an artistic take on photography as a networked practice where sharing and meta-data are allowing you to look at the world in an unusual way.
Features of Buttons 1.3:
* Moment search for photos that were taken just now
* Location search for photos that were taken in the past at your location
* Variable time-frame and radius to search in
* Share found photos over Twitter, Email or browse them on Flickr
* Retina display and background search-enabled in iOS 4
