Stalker Tools: Why, why, why would anyone develop this app? Aptly named software package Creepy is a “geolocation information aggregator.” What that means is that you can enter in someone’s Twitter of Flickr username and Creepy collects every photo or tweet associated with that account, including the date and location of each of these published bits.
