BBM to let you share photos in multi-person chats and transfer larger files

BlackBerry has been on a BBM roll lately, unleashing the messaging service on not just iOS and Android but Windows Phone as well. However, that’s not all that’s up the Waterloo company’s sleeve. A new version of BBM is in the pipeline, and it’ll have a few new features that will delight the BBM power users amongst you. For one thing, you’ll finally be able to share photos in multi person chats, plus you’ll get the ability to send files that are up to 16MB in size — the current limit is 6MB. In a response to customer feedback, BlackBerry also promises that the size of the emoticons will be bigger. There’s no clear timeline on just when this update will roll out, but we’re just happy that BlackBerry has plans to improve its messaging app beyond mere stickers.

Droid Zap app now supports more phones

droid-zap-app

Droid Zap

The Droid Zap app just rolled out an update that lets more users enjoy its features. The app, which was released alongside three Motorola Droid phones, the Ultra, Mini, and Maxx, previously allowed only the users of said phones to instantly share photos with users of any of the three devices. A later update also added support for older Droid smartphones.

The update, however, now claims to let users of all Android phones receive and send photos easily by means of the app. Some users on r/android, however, noted that the app does not work for their phones, because it is incompatible with their countries.

For those whose phones, however, are compatible with the Droid Zap app, using it is easy. One simply swipes the screen to have the app look for other Android phones in the vicinity that have the Droid Zap app installed. Sending can be public, or private with the use of a PIN.

Owners of non-Droid phones, at the moment, will only get to share photos, but Droid users have the option to send videos, as well.

For owners of the three abovementioned Droid phones, Droid Zap throws in one extra feature: Zap Zone. Zap Zone lets users form a special group whose members can easily share photos or videos with the other members of the group.

The app requires the use of a Google ID, a data network to download the content, and the GPS/Wi-Fi functionality on one’s smartphone to identify location.

It may be recalled that back then, the app received some positive feedback for eliminating the need to send videos or photos via e-mail or social networks, as well as for its ability to send such content in just a few number of steps. Some even compared it to Apple’s AirDrop, which required more steps to share content than Droid Zap did.

Take note, however, that because Droid Zap depends on your location, you need to be generally near, that is, within around 300 meters, of the person with whom you are sharing your files.

Want snow on your Google+ photos? Just shake your phone

blank

Add a little on-demand holiday cheer to any photo you take

The latest update to the Google+ app (and therefore the Photos app) lets you add on-demand animated snowfall to any picture you take. If you've been using Google+ to share photos lately and have "Auto Awesome" effects turned on you may notice many of your holiday-themed pictures adding snowfall and twinkling highlights automatically, but you can now do that under your own direction with the latest update.

Simply grab the new version of Google+, rolling out gradually today, and view one of your pictures in the app (or the Phtoos app, same thing). Give your phone a little shake while viewing the photo full-screen, and you'll see the same falling snow animation that was applied by Auto Awesome. Shake your phone again, and you'll save that new version of the photo and can share it out to your circles.

It's a fun little holiday-themed update to the app, and we're sure more than a few people will take advantage of the new feature.

Latest Instagram update brings the ability to share photos privately with friends/family

Instagram DirectThe world’s most popular image sharing network has just received a big update which introduces a feature called Instagram Direct. This feature allows users to share an image with a selected bunch of people rather than showing it to the entirety of their followers. This is ideal for celebrities who have a lot of followers, but can’t really share private images meant for family without showing it to everyone else. We can call this an extension of the Direct Messaging feature on Facebook or even WhatsApp. The developers will roll out an update to the app starting from today for both Android and iOS devices simultaneously.

We’re yet to check out how well this feature works after the new Instagram version 5.0 update, but it’s clear that the developers have put in a lot of work to bring this to fruition. However, this is one of those features which should have existed from the start, but simply didn’t make it. But Instagrammers will welcome this new update with open arms and will now be able to filter who they share their images with.

Instagram debuts ‘Direct’ allowing you to share photos and videos with select friends

Instagram_Direct_02

Instagram hosted an event in New York City today to unveil Instagram Direct. Direct allows you to share certain photos and videos with select friends. Everyone will get a new icon at the top right corner of the feed. It will open your inbox where all these privately shared stuff will reside. You won’t be able to see anyone’s private photos/videos unless they shared them with you and you follow them. When you want to share a photo or video with a limited number of people, you can do so by selected “Direct” and tapping the names of the people you want (up to 15). You will also be able to see who has seen your photo or video as well as who liked it, and of course see the comments unfold.

Seems pretty cool, but you can already do this with Google+ very easily. Just sayin!!!

Instagram Announces Instagram Direct, Private Video and Photo Messenger Built Into Instagram

Instagram, the filter-centric social network, took to the stage this morning before a small crowd of press to announce their latest experiment, Instagram Direct. Instagram already lets you share photos with everyone on your list, but no real option for messaging and keeping up with specific followers. Instagram Direct allows users to share photos with select groups of people to keep that inside joke a secret or share something special with a loved one. 

Available for Android today, the new update will add an inbox feature into Instagram that allows users to start private conversations with people or groups of people. A direct message has to start off with a photo, but from there, text can be exchanged back and forth between the members of that group. Instagram now has a real time list of users running on it so you can see your friends online as they open the app and you will get notifications as soon as someone likes your photo or replies to your direct message.

Here is how it works:

To send a photo or video to specific people, tap the camera button to enter the same simple photo or video capture and editing screens. At the top of the share screen, you’ll see the option to share with your followers (“Followers”) or to send to specific people (“Direct”). To send using Direct, tap the names of the people you want to send your photo or video to, write your caption, tap “send” and you’re done.

Instagram 5.0 will be available for download in Google Play sometime later today. Will you use this, or is it just another messaging service in the long list out there?

Flickr launches new Android app and hands out 1-terabyte of free storage

Flickr_Splash_Banner

If you thought Google’s 15GB of combined free storage for Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos was a good deal, check out Flickr. They not only released a new app, but to entice you to start using the service, they are offering 1-terabyte of free space for both photos and videos. They certainly aren’t fooling around since 1-terabyte is more than enough for a small city of people, let alone an individual person. Of course videos can eat that up pretty quickly, and thankfully they are included.

To give you a perspective, you could take one photo every hour for 40 years and still not fill it up. That’s over 350,000 photos. To further compare things, it would cost you $50 per month for the same 1-terabyte of storage with Google.

As to the app, it’s now at version 2.0 which is on par with the iOS version. Hit the break for the list of features and download links.

Features:

  • Full bleed and high-resolution images
  • Justified views everywhere
  • Sixteen artistically designed filters
  • Photo editor that allows you to enhance, draw, crop, add text or retouch your photo to get them just how you want them
  • Your photos are always yours on Flickr and we give you complete control of your privacy with every photo you take
  • Find and join groups, share photos and join the discussion
  • Explore beautiful and interesting photos from the massive Flickr community – nearby or across the globe
  • Keep track of where you take photos automatically with geotagging

Share photos with strangers using Rando

We’ve been waiting for this interesting little thing to arrive on Android after a short period of exclusivity on iOS, and here it is. Rando is a simple, stylish little app, that does one thing — shares photographs. Randomly. You take one, send it off, then you get one back in return. That’s the entirety of.

It doesn’t let you load images from the phone’s memory, so you know the images you’re receiving are “live” shots taken by others as you sit and they there. It’s oddly captivating making little connections with people you’ll never know or meet. Here’s us boring people with photos of books and mugs:

rando android 2 rando android 1

rando android 5 rando android 4

Rando images you receive arrive in the form of those little circular things on the bottom right. It’s quite fun. What with this and today’s launch of Android video sharing app Cinemagram, we’re feeling uncharacteristically sociable today. Who wants to see my [EDITED]?

Check out Rando here.

Google developer teases the masses with Google+ Photos app

Google+_Photos_Chromebook

 

If you happen to own a Chromebook, then you’ll be happy to know there’s a sweet little app that’s currently on the way. Famed developer François Beaufort had revealed in a teaser that Google+ Photos is very much real and is all set for arrival on your machine in the near-future. Also known as “Pulsar”, the app is powered by Native Client technology and gives users the ability to upload and share photos from Chrome directly. Beaufort is quick to mention two major features of the Chrome app: the automatic selection of the best shots and the automatic import of photos when users plug in a camera or memory card. Of course there’s probably more to the app, but for now we won’t know very much until the app gets all of its kinks worked out.

Unfortunately, the app is not quite ready for primetime just yet, but Beaufort does encourage adventurous users to try it out if they are feeling a little lucky and all. You’ll find more deets at the source link below.

Minus updated with new interface and featureset

Minus

Minus is putting out an update to its Android (and iOS) app today that not only changes and improves the interface, but also changes the way the service works as a whole. The app used to be focused on picture storage to share with friends, and has now pivoted a bit to be focused on meeting and sharing with people that are nearby. The basic idea is to see other Minus users around you and then chat, share photos and browse other people's photos. Photos can still be kept private and accessed from the Minus website, but the main intention is to share them publicly now.

The interface has been redesigned and cleaned up notably, which is hard to complain about on its own, but it seems like some users aren't taking too kindly to the quick change in features from one version to another. If you're interested in trying out the new Minus, hit the Play Store link at the top of this post.

Bump app now allows transfers of any file between phone and computer

Bump app now allows file transfers between phone and computer

We’ve seen the Bump app evolve from just a way to transfer contacts to a version that allows for mobile payments and one that lets you share photos between your phone and your computer. Now the company has expanded its feature set to transferring files of all kinds, be they photos, videos or Word documents. Simply enable the location feature in your browser, tap the files you want to move over, slap that spacebar button with your phone and the files will be on their way. They’ll actually head over to Bump’s servers and not your desktop, but you can still easily download them if you so choose. The updated app is available on iOS and Android today, so you can start bumping your files over right now.

Review: Snappet – Christmas Edition Makes Creating Holiday Pet Photos a Snap

Snappet – Christmas Edition  
Developer: dean marco  
Price: $0.99   Download

Are you an animal lover or pet parent who prefers the company of four-legged companions to that of most people? Even if you only kind-of like Fido or Fluffy, if you want a quick and easy way to create pet-photo greetings to share with others then Snappet - Christmas Edition for and iPad makes it possible. A simple photo app that allows users to turn pictures of their pets into framed and captioned images made comically amusing with the optional addition of cartoon accessories like hats and glasses, Snappet is all about pets. And the new Christmas-theme pack adds everything you need to get your pet into the holiday spirit.

Though Snappet borders on the ridiculous, it has merit. Lots of people share photos of their pets and when you can dress one up for nearly any occasion, it makes it kind of fun. Granted, there’s not much of a professional quality feel to Snappet, but that’s kind of the point – just make it fun.

No skills are required beyond the basic camera operation and the ability to navigate the five tabs. There’s one for importing pics from the device’s camera roll, one for taking a new picture, one for adding frames, one for adding accessory elements and a final one for sharing by email or to Facebook or simply saving to your device’s camera roll. Holiday-themed pet pics couldn’t be simpler. (more…)

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app launches on Google Play and Amazon App Store

Amazon has just pushed a new app to Google Play and its own app store that allows users take advantage of its Cloud Drive from an Android device. Amazon intends for this app to be a place where users can easily upload and share photos. As you would expect, Cloud Drive has been integrated in Kindle Fire HDs already, but now, owners of other Android devices can use it as a place to store their photos in the cloud.



Users of Amazon Cloud Drive get access to 5GB of free storage for their photos. More storage can be added starting at $10 a year for an extra 20GB, and going up from there if you need more than 20GB. For most users, it seems like 5GB to store photos should be plenty.

The app also features options for sharing your photos with other popular apps. You can upload photos to Facebook right from Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app. You can also use the app to share photos with friends via email and other applications. Overall, it looks like a pretty solid way to keep your photos in the cloud and save some local memory on your Android device.

The app also has some nice features for the way it displays your photos. You can view them in a horizontal mosaic or vertical grid view, depending your preferences. If you are looking for an easy to use cloud storage app for your photos, Amazon’s new one might be right up your alley.

Instagram v3.0 brings share photos to Map, improved scrolling and more

Who’s ready for more amateur photography? The creators of Instagram (now owned by Facebook) have just issued a rather large update to their extremely popular application bringing some neat new enhancements and features. Their new feature called “photo maps” will probable be popular so lets take a peek.

Now users that geo-tag or add their location to photos can check them out on a map and see where they’ve been taken. This is great for vacations, trips, or people that travel a lot in general. Your followers can also see too, so use caution. Being able to see where your friends go and where an amazing photo was taken is a great feature.

Next up is infinite scrolling. Previously you had to scroll the the bottom of the list, then tap the pesky “load more photos” button that always took far too long. Now they’ve added infinite scrolling where it will auto load content. A simple but much wanted feature, so give it a try. Check out the video below.

Finally, the last thing is speeeeed. This goes hand in hand with the new infinite scrolling feature, as photos now load extremely fast. With millions and millions of users speed has always been an issue, but now that Facebook has control on the backend we can expect things to hopefully get better — although judging their Android app I have my doubts. Get it right this minute on the Google Play Store.

Share your photos and videos through Wi-Fi via Wi-Fi Shoot

 

Sharing pictures and videos is something everyone does on a daily basis. Finding a way to do that in a simple and quick manner is always welcomed and sought after. Wi-Fi Shoot is an app that can connect two Wi-Fi Direct-compatible devices together to share photos and videos. The app is fairly simple to use, once the two devices are paired, a tap of a button is all that’s needed to pass the picture or video along.

I love apps that makes tasks simpler and faster to achieve. While this app works great thus far, keep in mind that it is still in beta phase and still has bugs that the developer has to work on. Thus far, the app only works on local media, so you won’t be able to share any cloud-based photos or videos. Wi-Fi Shoot only works with devices that have Android 4.0 and up and is available in the Google Play Market for free. Hit up the break for a download link and a video showcasing the app!

LG Nitro HD to get Ice Cream Sandwich on July 31st


Not sure how many of you own the LG Nitro HD, but AT&T just reported that it will get the Ice Cream Sandwich update on July 31st. In addition users will also have access to LG’s new Optimus 3.0 UI, which allows users to unlock the phone by swiping anywhere on the screen, using your own photos as icons or shortcut images, and the addition of a “Download” category in the menu for easier organization.

Hit the break for the changelog.

  • New lock screen actions let you conveniently jump directly to a specific application without unlocking the homescreen.
  • The redesigned Gallery App & Photo Editor makes it easier to manage, show, and share photos and videos than ever before.
  • An updated home screen folder and favorites tray that lets you group your apps and shortcuts logically by simply dragging one onto another.
  • Enhanced multitasking capabilities let you instantly navigate from one task to another by leveraging a list in the System Bar that includes thumbnail images of all recently used apps.  Just tap the thumbnail to resume using that app.
  • Improved text input with an updated keyboard that supports faster text input and more accurate entries with better error correction and word suggestions.
  • An app that helps you easily monitor your data usage.
  • Face Unlock, a new screen-lock option that intelligently unlocks your device using facial recognition software.

You can download the update by going to www.lg.com/us/NitroHD-Upgrade from your personal computer and following the instructions on the site.

They also mentioned that updates would be coming to the HTC One X and HTC Inspire that will enhance performance for both phones. Additionally, the Inspire will get the AT&T Address Book, HTC Sense 3.0, and Task Manager. We can only hope that One X update is Jelly Bean, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.
