Boston, Massachusetts – Woven by litl announced that its popular mobile photo viewing app now features an uploader that syncs albums and photos from hard drive-based iPhoto libraries. Woven users can now enjoy the convenience of on-the-go viewing of their entire collection of online and offline photos – from those stored on sharing sites like Facebook, Shutterfly, and Picasa to iPhoto collections stranded on home hard drives and even those pictures saved on phones and tablets. The new Woven Uploader for iPhoto is available immediately as a free download from within the app.
“We surveyed over 500 families about their photography habits and were surprised by the number of places where photos are stored – often more than five and sometimes as many as ten,” says John Chuang, litl’s founder and CEO. “The new Woven Uploader for iPhoto helps people gather all their photos for mobile viewing and storytelling and is an exciting move closer to our vision of making every one of life’s special moments effortlessly available.”
After a one-time installation to any Mac computer (Mac OS X 10.6 or later), the Uploader automatically locates a user’s iPhoto Library and begins synching its albums and photos to the user’s Woven collection. These synched photos – along with those from a user’s online sharing services and their device’s camera – can immediately be enjoyed on any phone or tablet running the Woven app. When finished, the Uploader is designed to be left running so it can continue to synch new iPhoto photos and albums (and remove any that are deleted). A new deduping tool will hide copies of photos and ensure that every user’s Woven collection stays organized.
The iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad version of Woven can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes App Store via woventheapp.com/ios. Woven is also supported on the NOOK Tablet, NOOK Color, Kindle Fire, and Android-powered phones and tablets. With a free account, a Woven user can effortlessly access their entire photo collection across any and all of these devices – anywhere, anytime.
