It depends. Trying with a TV suddenly makes taking a picture with a
tablet pretty cool ;)

I confirm. The one thing's missing for us to be able to create a
gallery app that integrates data from the Dropbox folder that the
camera app will sync pictures to is a Dropbox data API connector
within our Factory system. That's relatively straightforward. We
propose to work on this in January. That's indeed completely separated
from the camera app project.

If time allows, we'll also try to develop an application template that
reuses the look-and-feel of the gallery app to create some sense of
thematic consistency across devices. Again, that's independent from
the camera app project.

Ref. TV, model matters more, as Web technology support varies greatly
from one model to another. A Samsung SmartTV (2012 model) would be
great to have, for instance. Ian, I suggest we have a side discussion
on this.
