Google’s Photovine for iOS now open to all

August 17th, 2011

Photovine is the cool photo story creation app just opened to the Apple Market for all to use.

Apparently Google’s Slide team has been hard at work perfecting this cool photo meme creation app that appears to have sparked a lot of interest lately.

So what is Photovine? It’s a photo-sharing application for iOS that puts an emphasis on “vines”. That is, photo-centric moments or ideas that connect you with other users. Yes, that sounds a bit pretentious. And the best way to understand it is to watch the video below. But think of it this way: you take a picture of your favorite cologne. This prompts another user to take a picture of their favorite fragrances. And that prompts another user to do the same. Etc. It’s more or less theme-based picture-taking.

This is an interesting concept because it spurs users into action. With an open-ended picture app you can take a picture of anything, and to some users, that’s daunting. What do you take a picture of when you can take a picture of anything? With Photovine, the experience is more guided. Or, if you wish to take a picture of anything, you can simply start your own vine.

HoneyGram web app for Android Honeycomb Tablets

June 27th, 2011

We are still waiting for an official Instagram app for Android… everyone will have to settle for the next best thing.

HoneyGram…an Instagram web app. This particular web app is made for Android Honeycomb. It takes advantage of the touch screen and gestures to see and share all of your pictures.

There really is no sense waiting for Instagram to come out with an app for Android when they clearly aren’t interested in doing so. If I was to make a guess…maybe they have been tempted by a ‘magic’ Apple and have decided to abandon all thought of a liaison with a little green Android.

All the usual Instagram perks work. Users can see all the popular images on Instagram, images based on location, search tags and put a widget onto your homescreen.

Many more features are unlocked when you log in with your Instagram account. Authenticating allows you to view your images, your friend feed, view other user’s images, follow/unfollow users, view more results for tag searches, and add 3 more types of widgets to your dashboard. (my friends, tag search, my pictures)
