Apple Just Hired Someone That Should Make The IPhone's Photo Taking Better

Apple has hired* John Papandriopoulos, the developer behind SnappyLabs, an innovative photography application, TechCrunch reports.

SnappyLabs made an app that did quick burst photography delivering high resolution photos snapped at 20-30 frames per second, which is faster than Apple’s native camera app, says TechCrunch.

There’s no word on what Papandriopoulos will be doing at Apple, but obviously, it will be something related to camera software/photo software.
