Internet social networking is set to enter a new phase with the launch of a new photography software that allows sharing of pictures taken through mobile phones instantly.
Developed by US-based firm AirMe Inc, photoWall enables users to take photos, instantly tag them and send to their Flickr or Facebook accounts.
Users can also create an instant photo album on the web with respect to a context, to which multiple people can contribute from their mobiles.
PhotoWall, to be launched tomorrow, has been created to be “a global platform for sharing real time user generated mobile content”, Apporva Ruparel, co-founder and Vice-President Strategy and Marketing of AirMe, told PTI.
“PhotoWall is the only of its kind in the world which uploads pictures from mobile phone and can sync it to other social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter”, he said, adding it is “a free and light downloadable” application.
PhotoWall users can also add a seven-second voice tag, describing their click in their own voice, Ruparel said.
Being a country of people with very close social ties and a huge geographic spread, applications like photoWall bring family and friends closer, he said.
To a question he said, “PhotoWall has been field tested successfully in India on low end phones and our media upload performances have been benchmarked in low speed 2G networks.”
“PhotoWall’s quality control process does not allow any inappropriate content to be shared,” he added.
