I'm looking for a truly basic app that takes photos with the built-in camera and uploads them somewhere in the cloud.

I stress basic because I need my photos to be easily programmatically reused without a lot of translation (glue code) on my part. For example: a Media RSS feed with nothing but the photos themselves, or a WebDAV folder.

Your looking for Photo Stream on iCloud. Does exactly this. Alternatively you can use Instagram to take basic photos. – BinaryMisfit Oct 5 '11 at 7:56

Apparently this is the functionality of Photo Stream on iCloud. Requires iOS5 and Lion (or a recent Windows version) though.
