cliqcliq Quickpic (free on the iTunes App Store) gives iPhone web application developers a tool for accessing the iPhone's built-in camera, photo library, and address book. Quickpic can be launched, as a native application, from any web page running in Mobile Safari (including on the iPod Touch), and configured to prompt for any combination of contacts, photos, and/or videos. By specifying a couple parameters, developers can tell Quickpic where to upload data to and where to go when finished. This creates a smooth flow from the web to the native Quickpic app, and back.

Maintaining a presence on the iTunes App Store can be frustrating and expensive. Finding developers, building complex software using an uncommon language and API, and staying within Apple's rulebook, all take away from a company's ability to stay focused and deliver their best mobile product. HTML 5 is shaping up to be the perfect outlet for many, especially smaller, companies wanting to be "on the iPhone", but not having the resources or desire to build a whole iPhone application from scratch. Still, without basic support for things like camera, photo Library, or contact list access, HTML 5 can seem quite limiting. Fortunately however, with cliqcliq Quickpic, Developers can easily add such support to their Mobile Safari web applications. Maintaining a web application is much Easier, since HTML is a widely used language. Quickpic helps make web-based solutions for iPhone presence a more viable option.

Quickpic is free to both users and developers!
