accelerometers to tell when the camera is still, then actuates the
shutter. Works pretty well. As a photographer, I'm pretty good at
holding my breath while I take a picture to minimize shaking. It's
almost automatic with me. Even with that, it's hard to get a good
shot under some circumstances. This app really makes a difference.
Everyone's hands shake a little bit, and this app takes advantage of
the fact that in order to shake, the hand has to stop before it
changes direction to shake the other way, back and forth. The instant
you stop moving, it takes the shot. Pretty cool!

gorgeous Conure. It was a sweet bird as birds go. It was content to
walk across her fingers, back and forth from hand to hand. She was in
heaven. She totally loves animals, and even more so loves to interact
with new species.

Snuggling on the couch...ok. Picking him up for a little hug...not so much.
before and now a large male pit bull. So, when I was in the mall pet
store and my daughter asked to see this long-haired dachsund, I was
less than enthusiastic. After playing with him for a little while,
though, I can say, he was quite pleasant. He won't be catching any
frisbees or pulling me down the block on roller blades, but, as
companions go, he impressed me. First, we took out a miniature
pinscher be he was way too mouthy. This guy was just right. Playful
for a while, then, settled right into her lap.
