Lextech Labs' iRa Wins 'Coolest iPhone App' Award at iPhoneDevCamp 2

LISLE, Ill. , Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lextech Labs' iRa earned the "Coolest iPhone App" award at iPhoneDevCamp 2 in San Francisco, CA on Sunday. The mobile surveillance application was selected from a pool of more than 40 applications submitted during the two day event.

During the application demo, Lextech engineers displayed multiple live video streams on the iPhone from locations across the United States . They also demonstrated the remote, touch-based pan, tilt, and zoom camera controls to the 300+ developers in attendance.

"There was spontaneous awe in the room when Alex demonstrated iRa, the remote camera control application for iPhone," said Dominic Sagolla , iPhoneDevCamp Co-Founder. "We thought it would be very hard to judge the 'Coolest App' category, but Lextech pretty much nailed that one."

Three Lextech team members, including CEO Alex Bratton , flew to the San Francisco gathering and three attended the satellite location in Chicago . Lextech also donated technical expertise and equipment to the event by providing a backup live video broadcast.
