We've been building an Android app that will pull down photos from Facebook and Twitter and creates a "social camera roll" on your phone.
For the Guardian SXSW hack day, we built 2 features:
An OAuth based API so developers can upload and download photos from our service.
We now scour your Twitter feed for hashtags, and present them as "Trending hashtags" in the Android app. Clicking on them will bring up photos shared on Twitter related to that hashtag.
