FotoSwipe gets better looking, even easier to use

Following the recent announcement of FotoSwipe here on iMore, the developers behind the iOS/Android cross-platform photo sharing service followed up with us today to say THANK YOU. A small tribe of our forum community members were actively involved in beta testing the app — we love to see developers active in our forums — so we were happy to write up the official release of the app.

FotoSwipe let us know that in the short time since it was released, these efforts have helped them pass the milestone of one million photos being shared. There are now over 175,000 users (about a 50/50 split between iOS and Android) using FotoSwipe in 175 countries and the user base is growing fast. Since the initial release, the developers have been quick to listen to user feedback and have already released an update to FotoSwipe. The basic swipe gesture has been greatly improved, and the interface has been revamped as well. More features are on the roadmap as well, including faster sharing speeds when on Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi connections and support to share videos by swiping.

FotoSwipe makes sharing photos between iPhone and Android devices incredibly easy

Officially released today, FotoSwipe makes it incredibly easy to share photos between iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. FotoSwipe lets you share photos by swiping your finger from one device to the other (both devices must have FotoSwipe installed). FotoSwipe isn't limited to sharing between just two devices either. Let's say you're at a party (with some friends and some strangers) and you take a group photo. Everybody has their iPhone or Android phone with them would like a copy of that photo. With FotoSwipe installed on each device, you simply bring the phones near each other with FotoSwipe open, and the person who snapped the photo can swipe it over onto each phone in rapid succession - no need to exchange email or SMS contacts. It just works.

Contests, Coverage, and Cool Tech: What you can expect from #CESlive!

The team has arrived, the gear has been unpacked, and we're ready for #CESLive. This is our biggest year at CES yet. All totaled, we have 22 people on the ground here in Las Vegas covering the content for all our sites this week, including CrackBerry, Android Central, iMore, Windows Phone Central and the newly launched Smartwatch Fans. Aside from the usual faces, the Mobile Nations family is once again teaming up with our friends at Geek Beat: featuring podcast pioneer Cali Lewis and tech evangelist John Pozadzides. 

We'll be covering all areas of tech whether we're talking health and fitness, automotive, home technologies, smartphones, tablets and more. CES is the spot for it all and generally the spot to get a first glimpse at a lot of the cool new technologies that will soon be hitting our lives. Some will make it, others we'll never hear from again, and that's what makes it all exciting!

Community update: Forums facelift, all-star volunteer teams, and more!

Greetings all! For those that don’t know me, I'm James Falconer, the Community Manager around here and all of Mobile Nations. I’m the guy that looks after our forums, newsletters, community events… and the list goes on :) I’m also fortunate to have the opportunity to work with our amazing volunteer teams on a daily basis. These folks are ‘the bees knees’ (as my grandma used to say), and we couldn’t do this without them.

At any rate, I’m going to be checking in with community updates from time to time, so let’s get this started, shall we?
