Radar: iphone photo sharin

Tiny Pictures has released an iPhone app for its Radar photo sharing social networking site. The app lets users share their daily lives with friends by posting pictures and notes on Radar.net or through Facebook and Twitter. The free app allows users to upload photos from an iPhone camera or photo library with privacy controls that restrict who sees each post. The home screen shows the latest postings from friends and daily content feeds from various providers. The app uses caching techniques to quickly load low-resolution versions of photos while the full-sized versions download in the background.

The app supports syncing with Facebook profiles and newsfeeds and allows users to share public photos as Twitter updates. Text and e-mail alerts can be set to notify users when a friend makes a new posting.

CEO John Poisson tells MacNN the ad-supported service fills a "basic human need" -- keeping in touch with friends and family amid increasingly busy lives. He says Radar works with most web-enabled phones, and currently has more than a million subscribers.
