The app I’m working on is quite different (an automated camera-control program for PCs to go for high-parallax, zoomed, 3D video of daylight discs), but for the suggested phone app I’d want to see it one-touch, where one press of a button on the phone starts photography and notifies a Web site that will in turn buzz users in the area in order to perhaps get additional witnesses, who may also photograph whatever is up there. As with my system, anyone, with our without said phone app, who is able to photograph what is obviously an otherworldly craft should file FOIA requests for U.S. Weather Bureau and FAA radar data (NORAD is exempt from the FOIA). With a good sighting and photos, even without other witnesses, once you have such radar data, MUFON would likely be willing to get it analyzed for you, as they did in the Stephanville case. Anyway, if faced with a very clear, unmistakable sighting, not many people would even reach into a car for a camera, let alone perform menu operations on cell phone or anything else that would interrupt gawking at the object.
I looked at the site and the video for UFO Connect and found no information on what a user would have to do during a sighting, but if it were
one-touch as I described above, you can bet they would be figuratively shouting that from the rooftops. One ATS member said he was working on
something like that, but I don't know the current status of his project.
