Webscape: The best apps of 2012

Kate Russell takes a look at her favourite apps from 2012.

Safe Knight is across a number of platforms and provides a service that stores a picture, GPS data and nominated contacts to help in times of crisis if something goes wrong.

Foap is a smartphone photo service for iOS that sells images for $10 a time, split evenly between the company and the person uploading the photo.

Scoopshot is a similar service but is more news story based. This allows users to set their own price and terms.

A third photo service is Eyeem, challenging Instagram to photo filter app dominance. It even groups photos by event or location to make them easier to find.
