Phanfare iPhone photo site
Shortly after the WWDC keynote, Phanfare on Monday unveiled a new camera application for the iPhone that allows users to share photos on the web in a simplistic manner. Phanfare provides 1GB of free online storage for photos (without advertisements), while users can opt for unlimited storage options. Once users take a photo with the iPhone's built-in camera, they have the option to caption and upload a photo to a new or existing album. The unlimited storage version of the service costs $55 per year.
"For consumers, digital photography was a huge step forward over film, but uploading digital photos to a computer is just too complicated," said Andrew Erlichson, Phanfare's CEO and co-founder. "The Phanfare iPhone app gets the computer out of the uploading loop and makes digital photography fun and convenient--all with a single click."
