Checking out photos is a great way to get the feel for a destination and also to help you plan. a However, a basic Internet search runs the risk of delivering images that are inaccurate, imprecise or out-of-date.
Skylin.es is a free app available for Android and iPhone that launched in May by a company in Amsterdam. The app allows you to search for someone, something or somewhere among images that have been uploaded in recent months to the photo services yFrog, Instagram, Twitpic and Mobypicture. It filters images based on location data and publicly available information, like captions, found with the photos on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
The idea behind Skylin.es is great but the execution could have been better. A call to all developers is that we do want these apps, so go and make some.
