Link Phanfare Photon 2.1: search your Phanfare collection

Phanfare Photon 2.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch has hit the Apple App store. This version includes search of your entire Phanfare account, especially important for large accounts.

Here are a full list of improvements:

  • Search
  • Improved shot to shot time
  • Camera extensions: Made self-timer, tap-anywhere and image stabilization persistent across shots by putting them in settings screen.
  • Fixed a bunch of bugs

Many of these features were top requests in our recent customer survey.

For all you newbies, Phanfare Photon wirelessly synchronizes and displays your Phanfare albums on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Everything you take on the iPhone is automatically synchronized back to your Phanfare account. We think all point and shoot cameras will work this way someday, making your entire collection available on the back screen and using the local storage as a staging area before uploading it your cloud-based account.

Phanfare Photon is free but requires a Phanfare account.

    when will you put out an app for blackberry?

    We are going to continue to track the various model platforms and may put out an app in the future. Right now, it seems that the momentum is with the iPhone on the consumer side. On the corp side, Blackberry is still dominant.

    The other issue is that the Blackberry is not a great media browser, so the experience would not be as good. That will continue to change has Blackberry releases more models and focuses on the problem.

    Thanks you for the response. Blackberry Bold, Storm and new Curve models support high resolution media. The screen is very clear and the models support video streaming, etc. I would very much like to view my Phanfare albums through my Blackberry Bold and currently do not have a way to do so.

    we do have a rudimentary viewing experience that works on most blackberry devices.
