Camera tosses are a well-loved tradition with photographers. You don't need professional gear to stage spontaneous pics of your own—you just need ThrowMeApp, an Android Phone and a little bit of hand-eye coordination.

What does it do?

Takes pictures when you throw your phone in the air. It activates the camera's shutter when your device is at the peak of its climb and the lens is facing downward.

Why do we like it?

The app uses the phone's accelerometer to sense how fast it's falling and calculate an average fall speed based on your earlier tosses. You don't have to do any decision making when it comes to the actual shutter snapping, either. Just tap the screen, chuck your phone, and hope for the best. This is not an app to be used by klutzes.

My friend was at an EDM concert on the front railing and probably got the most awesome thrown camera shot of all time. As he threw his camera, everybody around him (like 40 people in the photo) looked up at it except for him. And his arm is extended straight up. The camera was pointing down enough to get him and a pretty big group of people. It looks like a rockstar shot.
