Color vulnerable to simple GPS hack, lets you spy on anyone, anywhere

Color, the $41-million-in-funding location-oriented photo sharing startup, is susceptible to simple GPS spoofing. With nothing more than a jailbroken iPad or iPhone, you can use FakeLocation to trick Color into thinking you're somewhere else. Within seconds you can be browsing photos that were snapped thousands of miles away. With a little digging, you can pore through photos not intended for your...

Instagram releases real-time updates API

Popular iPhone photo-sharing app Instagram has just released a real-time updates API that allows developers to use Instagram photos, tags, and locations in their own apps. The announcement wasn't all theoretical either: you can already see the new API in action with apps including Foodspotting, Dropbox and Momento. Other trendy apps will be launching Instagram integration soon, Flipboard and...

Instagram and PicPlz both launch APIs, and PicPlz adds analytics

In the mobile photoblogging space, Instagram is the hot and trendy iPhone app of the moment. It faces competition from PicPlz, which doesn't have the same brand caché, but keeps beating Instagram to the punch on new features. PicPlz just launched a developer API mere hours before Instagram, and then followed that up with built-in analytics and Creative Commons support that Instagram doesn't...

Five great photo sharing apps for your iPhone

Ever since the introduction of cameras to mobile phones people have been snapping photos of just about everything on their daily travels. The dawn of the smartphone brought the ability to share things to a wider audience than MMS could reach, and when the smartphone collided with decent-enough camera modules, the social photo sharing craze kicked off. The iPhone hasn't escaped the deluge of...

Unofficial Instagram web interface Followgram shuts down pending official API

Instagram is a great way to share photos and follow friends' photo posts if you have an iPhone. You can even share links to your individual photos on the web. Unfortunately, there's no web interface for sharing your Instagram photostream. That's where Followgram came in, until it was shut down this afternoon. Now this message has been posted: Sorry folks, looks like we have to say goodbye for...

Flickr adds Google accounts to sign-in options, plans better OpenID support

Starting today, signing up for Flickr is possible using Google accounts. This feature is rolling out as part of a new push from Flickr to support OpenID. Google is the first partner, but support for more services is expected in the future. Up until now, Yahoo-owned Flickr required a Yahoo ID to use. As you can see in the screenshot to the right, this is now also possible using an existing...

Flickr now imports Facebook friends, suggests users you may know

Flickr has added a couple of new features today. People You May Know is a rather self-explanatory tool that suggests friends for you based on your existing contacts and the people they know. This feature now appears on the Find Your Friends page, but also has a module on the Flickr homepage. You can categorize people as a friend, family, or contact right within the module. To have new...

Min.us is a very minimal HTML5 photo sharing and gallery creation tool

Min.us does one thing, and it does it surprisingly well: it shares images. Via the magic of HTML5 -- as long as you're using Firefox 3.6, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer 9 -- you can simply drag and drop images into Min.us. Other than watch your gallery take shape (here's mine), there isn't much else you can do. You can rename your gallery and change the order of the images ... but that's...

Instagram photo filter and sharing app for iPhone

Here at Download Squad, we're always on the lookout for cool little mobile apps that are both fun to use and useful. Sometimes that involves tickling our creative side and that's where Instagram comes in. Instagram, like many other apps available on the iPhone, allows you to take an image and apply effect filters to it. Some like 'Lord Kelvin" age your photo, others such as "Inkwell" desaturate...

Facebook acquires Divvyshot and prepares to roll it into Facebook Photos

What happens when a photo-sharing startup with a smart new approach meets the biggest online photo behemoth in the galaxy? We're about to find out. Facebook has just bought Divvyshot, a photo service that's centered around groups and events, rather than individual albums. This group sharing approach is awesome for photos of parties, conferences, shows, and other big events with multiple...

Download all the Facebook photos you're tagged in using PhotoGrabber

Pop quiz: what's the largest photo site on the web? Flickr? Photobucket? Picasa? Nope, it's Facebook. Like me, you might find that fact a bit surprising, since we don't immediately think of Facebook as a photo sharing site -- that's just one of its features. What's even more interesting when thinking about Facebook as a photo sharing site is that it has a built-in permission system that says...

Move photos from Flickr to Picasa Web, Photobucket, etc. with Migratr

Migratr does exactly what its name suggests -- if you insert an 'e' before the last letter, anyway. It migrates your images from one image-hosting site to another. Other than sounding a bit like an angry person looking for their cheese grater, and moving images around the Web, that's about it. It preserves meta data, descriptions and tags -- and even album organization. What I can't tell you is...

3 photo sharing sites for your new shutterbug - Holiday Gift Guide

If you know someone on your gift list is getting a camera or is a new shutterbug, you might want to consider getting them a "pro" photo sharing account where they can upload all their new photos. This is a nice gift for several reasons: 1. A pro account is a must have since most free accounts have a storage limit that the average photographer will easily exceed. 2. Pro accounts are ad free. 3....

GPhotoSpace for Firefox: use GMail to store, send your pics

Looking for an easy way to share photos with your GMail contacts? Adding the GPhotoSpace extension to your Firefox install provides you with a solution that's just as easy as using "send to: email recipient" in Windows. Once you've installed the addon, you can open it by clicking the status bar icon. If you're like me and your status bar is hidden, you can also customize your main toolbar and...

Is Fumpr really "the world's fastest photo storage?"

Fumpr is an image hosting site that claims to be "the world's fastest photo storage." It definitely has the simplest possible interface: a browse button to select the file you want to upload, and a "fump" button to share something. Fumpr falls into the unfortunate category of names that will probably never catch on because they're just awkward to say. "Hey, I fumped a picture of you earlier...
