While it may be hard to believe, snapping photographs and sharing them wirelessly using a phone first happened only in 1997, and it didn't become popular until around 2004. By 2010, almost all phones contained a digital camera and many mid-range to high-end devices also sported audio and video camcorder capabilities. Most iPhone and Android models now have these capabilities and more, and they have opened new pathways for entrepreneurial developers.
Titanium contains APIs that let you access all the phone interfaces required to take photos or videos with a built-in camera, record audio, and scroll through the device's saved image and video galleries.
Throughout this chapter, we will introduce all of these concepts and use them to put together a basic Holiday Memories app that will allow our users to capture photographs, videos, and audio from their device. We save those files to the local file storage and read them back.
