Now there’s a great idea!
Snap & Sync is a social photography app that may prove itself very useful.
The idea behind it is very simple. Sometimes when you go to places together with your friends, all of you guys usually take pictures on your own devices, and then you’ll never see their pictures, because they are too lazy to post it on facebook or send you by mail. Sometimes the lazy one is you. I know, I’ve been there.
So Snap & Sync has arrived to stop that from happening.
Basically you’ll create an album and invite your friends to that album. Then, every picture you guys take will go to the “cloud” and will be automatically shared and sync’d for all.
Also, you can choose to publish all the photos directly to the Facebook, so another step skipped in the name of laziness!
This awesome app is free for a limited time, so don’t wait any longer!
And since we have talked about Instagram, it is only fair to present you with options from the competition.
PicYou by Flixya Entertainment is a brand new app for sharing and quick editing photos from your iPhone.
Its interface is pretty much the same as Instagram, in terms of sections and operations.
There is the “Feed” section to see all your friends shared images, the “Popular” section to take a look at what is hot (most comments and likes), and the good ol’ “Share” button, to get things going from your side.
The main difference here in PicYou from Instagram is really the filters set.
I must admit, I like PicYou’s filters a lot more than Instagram’s. That Killowatt filter is a must-try, it just looks cool.
By the end of the day, it’s just a matter of choosing the one you like the most, because both are very similar and free.
Personally, I have both installed, since I have most of my friends on Instagram, so I can check them up once in a while, and I take pictures with PicYou, because of the better (in my opinion) filters, and share them on my facebook (there is also the twitter option).
PicYou is new and free. It has lots of potential, so it’s worth a try.
Instagram by Burbn, Inc. must be one of the most used apps for sharing and quick-editing pics from iOS devices.
The app is easy to use and very intuitive.
The big innovation came from the fact that this app could not only take pictures, but also apply nice filters and share it immediately with your friends, effort-free.
In order to join in the fun, you must first register. It’s free (both registering and the app), so nothing to lose here.
Right off the bat, after you added a few friends, you get the “Feed” section, where you get to see your contact’s latest pics. You can like them and/or comment on them as well.
However, if you have no friends added, you can proceed to the “Popular” tab, with the most watched/liked/commented pictures from all over the world. This can be a great source of inspiration and, sometimes, friends (yay for them).
In the “Share” section, you’ll be able to take new pictures or get old ones from your camera roll, and share it “as is”, or pimp them up a little bit, by applying filters (love the Kelvin filter), adding frame, rotating and even applying tilt-shift effects (linear or radial).
You have unlimited uploads, and you have the option to share your work right away with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare, and Posterous.
Instagram supports both iPhone/iPad cameras so you don’t have to make weird faces in front of your bathroom’s mirror whenever you decide to tak your own picture.
Instagram is free and if you like to take pictures with your iPhone, there is not much to think about really.
I’m not sure if you noticed it, but there is a Facebook box at the sidebar on this site. Since we’re talking about it, you should take the opportunity to click “Like” on our Facebook Page, it makes my heart all warm and fuzzy.
So we’re talking about the great app Facebook, by Facebook Inc.
Well, I’m sure you already have it, but the real good news is that it now works with iPad. No more “2X” button to explode and distort the image! Now you get all the Facebook goodness framed appropriately for your iPad.
And with more space comes more awesomeness. With the app going Universal, you get all the side bars and double screens that we already love so much in the iPad.
Complete menus, great photo albums, timelines, groups, pages, links and chat, everything is available “natively” for your iPad now.
Awesome, right? If you use Facebook and you have an iPad, you should drop whatever app you’re using at the moment and get the official one, they really took their time to do a good job here, and it yells “success” at every finger tap.
I shouldn’t even have to say that Facebook is free. Get it while it’s hot.
