Odds are that as long as your phone is not brand new, you've taken a fair number of photos with it. Those images are so much more than a moment frozen in time; they contain delicious data ready to be splayed out and consumed. InFoto slurps up the EXIF data attached to your snapshots and builds some very cool-looking infographics from it.

inf4 inf5 inf6

The app lets you generate a new infographic with a single tap, but you can also pull up the last data set instantly if nothing has changed. It can take a moment for InFoto to pull the data out of your images if you have a lot of them. InFoto's interface is swipable and covers photo data like location, time of day, device orientation, ISO, and flash usage. If you have geo-tagging turned off, the location page of the infographic is a little boring, but the others should work fine.

The interface is very smooth, and I really like the consistent design carried through the entire app. There isn't a ton of real functionality here, but the developer is promising to add more analysis screens in future updates. You can, however, share your infographics to any app in the Android sharing menu (but only one screen at a time). The free version is completely functional, but has fairly unobtrusive ads. The paid version is add-free and $0.99.

    Interesting. I prefer vertical 95% of the time and use flash 8% of the time. Never attached a location either. Favorite time was night time.

    Am I the only person that deletes photos from their SD card after posting/using them? Yay for DropSync synchronizing all of them to my Dropbox Public folder to have them ready-to-go!

      You know, Dropbox does that natively now... Regardless, having my photos automatically sync to Dropbox is awesome and a feature I too enjoy. 

      • DrMacinyasha

        That only synchronizes to one specific folder, and renames all files. OTOH, Dropsync lets me synchronize my screenshots and pictures separately from all of my devices, and keeps the original filenames, so panoramics, HDR, and videos aren't mixed in with regular photos.

          +100. I use Dropsync religiously and have the dropbox sync turned off entirely.

  • Prajnamu

    Yey. I use Xperia S and its says not supported yet. But you never told us the minimum requirement.

    It crashes in the middle of the stats gathering for me... :/

  • alvinx

    Is there a similar tool for the desktop, OSX preferred ? ... I would like to create such stats from my whole photo archive ;)

  • Celeronpm

    They just released an update to the app and now it has a full page infographic with all of the data aggregated. Seems a bit more useful now as it's easier to share.

    Free version is not compatible with the HTC Incredible, but the paid version is....  how odd.
