Every now and then a Kickstarter project arrives and it excites me. There could be many reasons why, but it’s mostly because it produces the “why has no-one ever thought of this before?” response.
One such project is Gestures. It’s a fantastic looking camera app that takes all the confusion and difficulty out of producing a beautiful photograph.
Unlike other popular camera apps, it’s not loaded with tons and tons of menus and sub-menus with different setting options. Instead, it’s so beautifully intuitive and simple, that Apple could have designed it. There are no buttons, no menus, just gestures, and the interface fills the entire screen moving absolutely everything out the way except for the image you’re capturing.
GESTURES is going to provide a fundamentally better picture taking experience for the rest of us – people who just want to take great pictures quickly without the clutter of traditional camera interfaces or complex settings we never use.
Think of this camera app as a clear window to our beautiful moments in life. Now we can capture them effortlessly with simple gestures.
There are no gimmicks or complicated features – it’s just you and your memories captured in those images, and nothing in between.

The developers are seeking to raise $20,000 to get this launched on the App Store and to get it finalized and ready. Depending on how much you bid you get a variety of rewards ranging from early access to completely free filters for 10 years or more. If you pledge $250, you get beta access right away.
In an App Store full of camera apps that all look and work the same, Gestures thinks differently and could be a massive success. I can’t wait to see if it’s fully funded, and genuinely hope that it is. To find out more, or to pledge, head on over to the Kickstarter project page.
