photo trap change detection app

Photo Trap allows the user to determine if any tampering, disturbance or nosiness has occurred while away. Basically, the app will tell you if someone has been messing with your stuff. Great for hotel stays (luggage), roommate situations (your bedroom), keeping children in check (the liquor cabinet), office spaces (cleaning services), and millions of other situations where you might think someone is digging in your drawers.
