Canon ‘Idea Mine’ iPhone App

Canon Idea Mine iPhone App

Canon has a new (and free) iPhone App that serves as an inspirational tool and helps spark your creativity for photo projects.  I met with Paul Pierson, the creator of ‘Idea Mine’, at PhotoPlus 2011 to get an overview of this cool new app.

Check out the overview in the above video.

I had a chance to bounce through a couple of randomize screens and lock in some ideas with a beta version of the App. I have to admit that it’s a fun app – and one that I could see being useful for a lot of photographers.  Plus, it’s free – so that’s hard to beat.

The Canon Idea Mine App should be available soon.  I was told generally “for the holidays” – so hopefully later this month.  It’s an iOS app only – so those of us using Android phones are out of luck. As soon as I get an official word on the App’s release, I’ll pass that news along.

Kind of sounds like the sort of thing we did in college in photography and creative writing classes. I can see it being quite useful for that and an entire Flickr group growing up around it.
