iPhone 'photo lawyer' app to take the stand

'You sold a clone Mac, and we've got proof'

Shoot_and_proof_SM

Register Hardware has seen some bizarre iPhone applications in the past, but this one may take the cake? We’ve come across one that, the developer claims, puts a lawyer in your iPhone.

Shoot_and_proof

Shoot & Proof turns your iPhone into a legal eagle. Allegedly.

Shoot & Proof, developed by French firm Codasystems, works with your iPhone’s camera to help you capture photographic evidence of everything from, say, a recently rear-ended car, to that delivery which arrived smashed to bits.

Each image can, Codasystems has claimed, be used as legal evidence because a whole gamut of information, including a time stamp, watermark and snapping location, is automatically recorded when you take the picture.

The application records the photo’s location using a mix of GPS and Wi-Fi or GSM base-station triangulation.

And the jury won’t have reason to believe that you’ve tampered with the photo, because Shoot & Proof images are automatically uploaded onto Codasystem’s servers for safe-keeping.

A launch date and price for Shoot & Proof hasn’t been cleared with Codasystem’s legal team, yet. ®
