Designed to mimic the effect of a classic photo booth (albeit without the exorbitant fees), Boothsy looks the part, including turning out the photos in strips -- customizable up to four, a nice touch. Thanks to a simple interface and some cool built-in features, the iPad app helps you relive the memories of squashing into a cramped space with your mates to get some snapshots. Facial recognition is arguably the standout feature here, and with it enabled, the app won’t take the set number of pictures unless there’s a face actually in shot.

According to Boy Genius Report, 9 to 5 Mac and now Patently Apple, Photo Booth is coming to iOS in a big way, replete with all of the bells and whistles you'd expect from 1 Infinite Loop. It looks like the OS X version of the popular photo-taking application will get a big update, too!

p81), it’s easier to record a video message with QuickTime Player. And
