Every week Starbucks and Apple team up to offer a book, game, app, song or TV show to customers for free. This weeks apps are Fast Camera by i4software and Weber's On the Grill by Weber-Stephens Products Co.
Fast Camera is definitely fast. The app starts snapping photos as soon as you launch the app. I had about 100 images snapped in less then 30 seconds. There are plenty of options to chose from: photo delay, camera choice, stealth mode and more. The app is normally $1.99 but you can grab it for free for a limited time. Head over to your local Starbucks, grab a latte and a code and start snapping. After you are done snapping some photos make sure to share them with The Snap Zone.
