    Other than using it for basic videos, pictures, and facetime, can you use the cameras for other uses? I mean, will there be applications that you can use with the cameras? Some new game ideas?
    Can you use it as a webcam for msn? That would be pretty cool.

    That's kind of like asking, "what else can I use a sink for, other than washing my hands?"

    There might be some apps that will support the camera, and I'm sure there will be 3rd party tweaks that will enable many features like that.

    Isn't that kind of all cameras can do? And, don't quote me on this, but I don't think App Store devs have access to the cameras.

    I think they do. I remember one app where it was text while walking and the camera activated on the back so that you could see where you were going.

    Chatroulette would be pretty rad. Apparently they had something like it but it was removed cuz people were trolling too hard. Maybe that'll be a jb thing?

    I know that is an Android app, but I never heard of an app like that for the iPhone.

    Can anyone confirm this? I was hoping for some OCR and bar code utilities.

    One app I've been wanting is one that could take a picture of a sign or menu in a foreign language, translate it and redisplay it as if the sign or menu was originally printed in your language (all formatting would remain intact.)

    There already is a bar code scanner (RedLaser), so I'm pretty sure apps can access the camera (if needed).
