Please excuse me for this totally unpolitical diary, but today's an exciting day for me personally because an iPhone app that I've been working on since before Rick Santorum's surge is finally available on the App Store. It's called SnapStill, and it lets you snap photos from videos on your iPhone and iPod.

Here's a video demo:

SnapStill App Icon
I starting working on SnapStill because I wanted a better way to get still images from video than taking screenshots. At the time, I had no idea how to program an iPhone app, so learning how to code for iOS became a hobby ... and here we are.

You can read all about SnapStill's features here and here, but basically the app makes it a lot easier to find the exact frame you're looking for and snaps the best quality image possible by grabbing directly from video instead of the screen.

If SnapStill is your cup of tea, you can download it on the App Store (it's just $0.99). And if you like it, please rate it and help spread the word!

Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled programming, getting ready for 2014 ...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
