[Bruce labeled it iPhone by accident when first posting it, URL's are forever with blogs, has happened to me T_T ]

According to Technology Review the "app [is] capable of running in the background of any smartphone using the Android 2.3 operating system".

Basically this Malware App silently takes pictures, while geo and orientation tagging them, filters out blurred and dark images, then send the rest to a server.

Interesting app.
