Jeffery Powers, Co-Founder of Occipital, announces news on his Vator profile

Jeffery Powers on Thursday announced via his Vator.tv profile that Occipital had released it's first iPhone application to "beta testers," who were called the "fearless beta testers" by Powers. I'm assuming that Powers is suggesting that these beta testers are "fearless," because the product is a bit raw and unfinished. That's to be expected, of course. 

Undoubtedly, an iPhone application for Occipital will be pretty cool. If you haven't seen the technology in action, watch the team's demo at a recent TechStars gathering.

I personally have quite a positive outlook on how well Occipital will do. I think the competition for GPS photos isn't that big, even though more and more physical cameras are starting to implement this technology. And, even though the iPhone stores the GPS position of where you took your photo, there is no true utilization of it within the supplied photo application. For me the only competitor to come close to what Occipital is achieving would be Snaplog.

On background, back in October, Bambi Fransisco, Guy Kawasaki and Ezra Roizen evaluated Occipital in a  Vator Box segment. Here's what they had to say:
