The Seahorse App Allows Users to Have Shared Control

The Seahorse app allows users to create photo and video albums in collaboration with their friends and family.

With Seahorse, anyone can add a photo or video to an album, which are referred to as "scenes." While the collaborative nature -- it's fun to share the wealth -- is a unique component, the true innovation lies in how the app handles the contributions once they are shared. For up to a week, anyone can delete photos, regardless of who initially uploaded them. This unorthodox concept is meant to establish a sense of co-ownership between those involved. Offering shared control allows a de-emphasis from who took the photo, allowing the subjects to have a communal archival experience.

Another cool feature is the Flashback, a discovery function that recalls photos from today's date in previous years.
