Price: Free, $0.99
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Lots of infographics!
- Smart user interface!
- Fast processing!
- More of a ‘nice to have’ app rather than a ‘must have’.
InFoto is an app for people who take lots of pictures on their Android phone or tablet. When you initiate the application, it scans and processes your pictures and presents you with a range of handy infographics that will tell you all kinds of things about your mobile photography habits.
In order of presentation, InFoto shows:
- the world locations of your pictures
- your top locations, your preferred tie to take pics
- favourite shot orientation (vertical or horizontal)
- how often you use flash
- favourite photo sizes in megapixels
- the ISO values of your photos
- most active day of the week
- active months of the year
- most active days of the month
…these graphs are presented in a nice UI that’s easy to understand and looks good.
If you take a deeper interest in your pictures and your own photography habits, this is definitely an app to try. InFoto unearths all the statistics from your pictures and gives you a heads up. While it’s certainly a neat little app that works well, it perhaps doesn’t ‘do’ very much. Therefore, if you’re not particularly interested in the kind of stats listed above this probably won’t be for you. However, if you are curious, or perhaps take your Android photography quite seriously, it’s definitely worth a look.
Infoto – World location
Infoto – Top locations
Infoto – Activity by day of the week
Infoto – Favourite times to take photos
Infoto – Sizes
Infoto – Processing
Infoto – Months of the year
Infoto – Orietntation

If you’re interested to see perhaps what day of the week you take most pictures, which orientation you shoot in or how your use ISO, this is a great app that presents that info in an easy to see format. For the more casual snapper, this might not offer much, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
Ease of Use:
The app is very simple to use. Just select whether to view a previously taken set of infographics or perform a new one. Once completed just scroll through the graphs by swiping your finger to the right.
I don’t think this is something you’ll use a great deal. It’s a cool thing to check out but even if you take lots of pictures, you might only perform this every few weeks maybe. I guess it might depend very much on how many pics you take and how interested you are in the trends you generate by doing so. Total geek stuff, but somewhat useful and cool!
The interface is very smooth and looks highly professional. Although very simple, it’s a nice-looking app that’s good to show off.
