PRESS RELEASE: Dad creates app to solve problem that plagues parents daily.

No longer will you have to publicly humiliate yourself in an attempt to get your precious children to look at the camera.

Look Birdy is a very simple photo app that solves a problem which has plagued parents for… well I guess as long as phones could take photos.

The app, created by 38 year old Melbourne Dad Ben Keenan with programming help from his friend Rhys Sullivan uses an iPhones flash in way Steve Jobs never intended.

It turns it into an attractor whilst making attention grabbing bird noises that magically attract little eyeballs to get kids looking in photos.

No longer will you have to publicly humiliate yourself in an attempt to get your precious children to look at the freaken camera, Look Birdy does this for you. Works pretty well on pets too.

Look Birdy has just hit the App store.  Ben will be trying his hand at blogging about his adventures and how the world reacts to this app at this website: http://www.lookbirdy.com If you would like to ask Ben anything, you can reach him on hello (at ) lookbirdy.com or on Twitter on @lookbirdy

Rhys, ironing out the last few bugs on Look Birdy

There is a massive gaping chasm between coming up with an idea and actually making it.

For me, this is this app.

I got my first iPhone around the time my first daughter was being born.

In fact, I think taking photos of Noushie (who is now five) is what justified it.

So here we are, so close.

Rhys, after many, many tweaks and changes is about to make this thing real.
