It seems like everyone these days is a budding film auteur with all these smartphone cameras constantly rolling all the time. While the quality of smartphone cameras has increased exponentially in the last few years, they still don't do multi-angle shooting very effectively.

Enter the Switchapp. This neat little app allows users to network cameras together to create shooting from multiple angles with multiple cameras. Viewers can even link the different YouTube clips from the different angles to choose their own preferred angle on the fly. I think this app is something that a sports broadcast could really benefit from.

The crowdsourcing doesn't end there. A Switchapp user can geotag a shoot and people can sign up to be part of the crew, or even follow the event live from their choice of camera angle.
