Is taking pictures of your friends on your phone, tagging their names and uploading them just too darn hard? Now there’s a free helper app for that, called Klik, which launches out of testing today on the iPhone.
Using facial recognition, Klik can identify people even before a photo is taken — if you hold up your phone to take a picture of someone, Klik will guess who it is by hovering that person’s first name over the person’s head.

Then Klik helps users share the tagged photos on Facebook, Twitter, email and its own public social network.
