Collect Your Facebook And iPhone Photos In One Easy-To-Manage Album With Albu
Just a couple of days ago, I told you about the universal update to the multi-source photo management app WideAngle. Now, I'm about to tell you about another multi-source photo management app called Albu, which, as it happens, was released just a couple of days ago. Albu, which is currently optimized for iPhone and iPod touch only, is basically an app that automatically collects your photos from different sources. At the moment, there are only two of those different sources: your device's photo library and Facebook. But according to Albu developer Plaskmobile, support for other sources, including Twitter and MySpace (remember MySpace?), is coming soon. I must point out, though, that the app requires you to log in with Facebook and Facebook only. Even if you intend to only manage photos from your device and don't intend to gather photos from Facebook, it's still the only way to gain access to the app. I'm guessing a lot of you are now saying "thanks, but no thanks" to Albu. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. But for those of you who aren't allergic to Facebook at all, then you're welcome to take advantage of Albu's tagging, sorting, and sharing features:
Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later, Albu is available now in the App Store for $0.99. To find out how Albu fares compared with WideAngle and other similar apps, watch out for Bryan's feature on photo archiving apps to be posted here on AppAdvice soon.
