WidePhotoViewer App Debuts


The latest imaging app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is called WidePhotoViewer and its developers claim this one “gives photographers a way around the three worst problems with Apple's built-in Photos app: No titles or captions to identify photos, no way to view panoramas with full resolution, and using iTunes to synch photos.”

“When the iPad arrived last year, professional photographers started using it to show photos to clients. It sounds crazy, but there was no way to identify the individual shots,” said Marc Rochkind, developer of WidePhotoViewer. “They also griped about iTunes as the only way to get photos onto the iPad. WidePhotoViewer is my answer.”

Rochkind claims that WidePhotoViewer is the most complete photo-viewing app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, having added these key features:

• Accesses Flickr, Facebook, SmugMug, and Photo Library — the only app that can do all four.
• Download albums for offline viewing.
• Choice of thumbnail, grid, full-screen, or slideshow views.
• Display of titles, captions, camera (EXIF) data, and comments.
• Direct editing of titles and captions.
•Support for the iPhone/iPod camera.
• Upload directly to Flickr, Facebook, or SmugMug.
• Flickr exploration (interestingness, recent from everyone, Getty, searches, etc.).

Most of what WidePhotoViewer can do is free. An in-app upgrade unlocks the premium features, such as uploading, downloading, and title/caption editing.
