Fototriever Makes Finding iPhoto Photos Easier Than Ever

Fototriever Makes Finding iPhoto Photos Easier Than Ever

Adda Ventures, Inc. has released their first app, a photo organization and management app for iOS devices called Fototriever. The app allows users to take, tag, and retrieve photos by using their voice.

When users wish to find a particular photo, they simply speak the name of the event into the iOS device, and the app quickly finds and displays the photo. No more searching and scrolling through endless photos, simply speak or enter search text, and the photo is quickly found.

The idea for the app was planted in the head of Fototriever co-creator Dr. Alan Jeroff while going through the photos on his iPhone’s Camera Roll. “I kept looking at photos on my camera, and I couldn’t remember who some of the people were on some of the trips I was on, in the olden days I would always write on the back of the photo who the people were in the photo. That’s simply not possible in today’s digital-only world!”

When Dr. Jeroff discussed this issue with his associate, Dr. Dennis Nimchuk, they decided to hire a computer science programmer from the University of British Columbia to help them develop an app to remedy the issue. The app worked better than they had hoped.

“When I was in Palm Springs at a tennis match, I took photos. Back in the hotel room later that evening is when I tagged them. I was able to tag them by players, score, stats and opponents,” continues Dr. Jeroff. “Then, I was able to use my voice to search for the photos by simply saying a player’s name, the score, stats, or opponent, and the correct photos were instantly retrieved and displayed!”

Fototriever users can tag photos using the traditional formula of “how,” “what,” “where,” and “when.” Creating tags can be accomplished either by using their device’s virtual keyboard or by using the iPhone’s mic to speak the tags.
