We released a new version of the Phanfare iPhone app to the iPhone App Store. This new release offers several new features and other improvements.
- See your published albums from within the app. This embeds a web view that will show you your own published content and published content from friends, family and groups. The web view does not show your private content, except that if you take photos on the phone, we do link to a private web view of that album for your convenience.
- Import from existing camera albums, limited to 640×480 resolution, which is what the Apple-approved interfaces give us today. We are hoping Apple addresses this in a future release.
- Faster image capture. We shaved 7 seconds off the shot to shot time.
- Power management features: You can set the app to only upload when on WiFi, greatly increasing your battery life.
This is the view you see after the photo is taken. If you caption it and use it, it is sent in the background to your account. You can change which album it is uploaded to, or add a new album.
Here we are composing a new image while another image uploads in the background.
This is the web view of your albums, embedded within the app. You can get to the photos of your friends and family as well.
We need feedback on the app! Let us know what you think and what you want it to do. We have our own agenda but we want to hear your ideas.
You don’t need a 3G iPhone to use the Phanfare app. Update any original iPhone to Apple’s 2.0 phone software and you are on your way.
Once you start using your iPhone to take photos and automatically upload in the background, you won’t go back.
