Well we all love to spread the word for good or bad causes, or simply share our latest pics with friends and family or post updates of last night’s mayhem at the party.
But with so many photo sharing apps, which ones are the best to use?
Check out these apps below to get the lowdown:
Instagram Price: Free Ok so this pretty slick app is probably the trendiest amongst the masses now. What used to be a hidden gem for designers has now gone global with 15+ million users. Why? Because it does more than take a pic. With multiple custom designed styles you can do a number editing effects to an image which will dramatically enhance it and we’re not talking about old school sepia or black and white mode. Instagram - as they state - literally transforms photo’s in to works of art. And of course, you can share it all on FB, Twitter and the rest. User reviews are outstanding. It’s free so go on and give it a shot!
Flickr Price: Free Writing about Flickr does feel like it’s so 2006, but this website and now app has not just trundled on, but maintains one of the largest photosharing networks on the web. Now owned by Yahoo!, the app does pretty much what their website does. You essentially, shoot, upload and share your pictures with friends and/or go public. You can search people or places from the Flickr commune, Geo tag everything and sort all your images into specific files and folders. You know what you’re getting with Flickr when on the web and this app replicates that experience. Good reviews.
Push Price: Free Push is not just a photo sharing app, but it also lets you share vids and music with the ones you love. It’s actually really designed for sharing with friends as the interface somehow captures a sense of knowing just those who are close to you. With the ability to customize your journal, it makes for a non intrusive file and photosharing app that sets it apart from all the rest that import every contact under the sun when you sign up. It averages 4.5/5 from user reviews so 90% positive if you like.
Posterous Price: Free This app is designed to provide you with a safe and easy environment to post images and ideas and messages to your close group of friends and folks, where you can create as many spaces as you want in order to set up a platform for a group discussion which you can set to public or private. It has a real nice feel to its display and although it is by no means as popular as Flickr or Instagram or Facebook for that matter, its simplicity is perfect for those not in tune with advanced social networking and is unobtrusive of ads and random meaningless posts.
Shutterfly Price: Free Shutterfly is also geared towards just keeping it between friends and family. You can create “Share Sites”, like you can create a Photo album with FB or a folder in your DropBox Family folder, but with this photo sharing app it’s just that much simpler. No need to set privacy settings to who can and can’t view the pics. Just create a “Share Site” and add those you want to share it with and it’s live on the app for others to browse and contribute to. Only exclusive to iPhones, you get unlimited storage space and get to share them elsewhere or email them to whoever. Again this is by no means one of the titans of the photo sharing industry but it’s still free, simple to use and it’s not blasted with ads.
