Getting kids to produce a genuine smile for the camera isn't easy. There are the kids that grimace, look away at the moment you press the shutter button or show their impatience to get on with whatever they're doing.
That's where the Picasound iPhone app can help. It entertains the kids while you get your shot.
The app is very simple; it features 48 pre-recorded sounds that you can play to attract the kids' attention while you take a shot. Sounds include a barking dog, police siren, giggling baby, sneezing and ninja attack, among others. You simply select the sound you want to play and then depress the shutter button. The sound plays as long as you hold the button down. When you release it, the app takes a picture that's saved to your phone's camera roll.
Price: $1.99 on iTunes. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or higher.
