Shoot & Proof is intended for use on, said Frederic Vanholder, managing director, and it is running on about 600 handsets, thanks partly to $5 million in venture capital raised last year.
The angry CodaSystem founder, who has since left the company, figured that if he photographed the part of his home that needed the work that wasn't done — and he convinced authorities the image was authentic — then he would be able to get back what he paid for the work.
Shoot & Proof shows where a photo was shot (if the phone is equipped with global positioning software), as well as when and on whose device.
A retailer client of CodaSystem uses Shoot & Proof to ensure manufacturers that their wares are being displayed as promised. A security company uses it to record break-ins and reassure insurance companies they aren't being bilked.
5 million for 600 handsets? Sounds like Apple should make them.
