photo sharing

I am a longtime Pinterest user and can easily spend an entire afternoon browsing, pinning and pinning some more, so you can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon We Heart It by chance in the New & Noteworthy section of the App Store.

We Heart It was founded in 2008 and is slowly catching up with Pinterest in terms of monthly users and the amount of content available. But, the question is, do you and I really need another photo-sharing service, let alone one that is hailed to be as addictive as Pinterest? Click “more” to find out.


Remember when Bump was the new app? There was really something genuinely satisfying to physically Bumping your phone to share contact information. Well, Bump has done a lot of growing up since the old days. From starting out as a contact sharing app, to diverging off into a payment app, and now having evolved into a file transferring app (that Bumps with your computer too!), Bump is making sure that you haven’t forgot about it.

See what’s up Bump’s proverbial sleeve after the jump. (more…)

What is this fantastical app you ask? Why, it’s Everpix, a comprehensive new photo platform that allows you to view, send and share photos from your photo collection within seconds.

Focusing on the “social” aspect of social photo-sharing, Pixplit has created the ability for individual users to add their own element or fragment of a photo to help create a whole image. Basically, combining images is now all I’m going to be doing on my morning commute.

If you’ve ever been out with your friends and heard the cry, “Send me that picture right now!” followed by a chorus of agreement, you know that iPhone photo sharing on the go isn’t all it could be.
