Photo organization service (and TechCrunch Disrupt finalist) Everpix just launched its first iPhone application. The app does two key things: it offers you a way to access your entire photo collection from your phone, plus it automatically uploads all your iPhone photos to the Everpix cloud.
The app is a crucial part of the overall Everpix experience, which, for those of you unfamiliar, works primarily as a Mac application at present (Windows coming) to automatically organize and combine all your photos, whether they’re stored on your computer or in the cloud. The service supports photo uploads from iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom, plus photos from your online collections on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and Picasa.
With Everpix for iPhone, your on-device photos can now be more easily uploaded to the Everpix cloud. Instead of having to first sync your phone to your Mac, download the photos into the software program of your choice, then wait for Everpix to upload them, you can now just use the new app to have those uploads happen automatically. In some ways, it’s similar to Google+’s “Instant Upload” feature in its Android app, but unlike Google+, when you delete an app from your iPhone’s camera roll, it’s also deleted from the cloud. Nifty!
Of course, the magic will only happen when Everpix is running in the background. For obvious reasons, while Everpix can’t perform uploads offline, it does allow you to browse your photos when offline. And, like the Everpix cloud service, the photos are organized in thoughtfully created collections after they’re online. You can even quickly re-share photos to Facebook and Twitter from within the app itself, if you choose.
The new app is available as a free download from iTunes here.
