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...

Views.fm Dropbox viewer offers slick galleries, and adds commenting

Sharing an entire Dropbox folder can be a bit of a pain, unless it's your Public folder. Plus, Dropbox only natively displays photo galleries for your Photos folder. What's a sharing addict to do? Try Views.fm, a Dropbox viewer that lets you share any folder publicly or with selected friends, and adds great-looking galleries and comments to boot. Views.fm connects to Dropbox, and then lets y...

Instagrid is an easy way to create a gallery of your Instagram photos

Looking for a clean, simple way to display and share your Instagram photos as a gallery? Check out Instagrid, a new Web app that makes the process about as painless as it can be. Just create an account, plug in your Instagram account details, and starting choosing photos. Photos can be viewed in a single-column display at full size, or as a neatly laid-out array of thumbnails. Clicking a thumbn...

Picplz adds collections and border effects

Picplz, the popular photo sharing app for Android and iOS, has introduced two more handy features: photo collections and border effects. Collections are easy to compile -- just tap a button on the Picplz web viewer or your mobile app (updates for iOS and Android will appear shortly).

Flickr for Windows 7 tablets and Windows Phone 7 officially introduced

Originally unveiled back in January, Flickr has now officially introduced its apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets. You'll find the Flickr WP7 app in the Zune Marketplace, while its tablet-friendly cousin is downloadable from this page (Silverlight required). Both apps provide a slick interface for browsing and searching Flickr, and they also provide a nice way to upload and manage yo...

Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

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 Ab...

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...

Put the Reader link back in Gmail with a Chrome extension

Google made a minor tweak to the Gmail navigation links recently -- moving Photos into a more prominent spot and Reader into the More drop-down. While I wasn't particularly concerned (I've got Firefox hotkeys wired to most of my bookmarks for fast mouse-free access), the change created quite a stir on Twitter. But as is usually the case, enthusiasts who don't want to accept changes on their fa...

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...

Pixable's Photofeed automatically curates your Facebook photos

If you're a serious Facebook user, you and your friends have posted hundreds of thousands of photos. Pixable's Photofeed is a new Facebook app that shows you which ones you should care about. It ranks photos in categories like "Popular of the week," "Popular of the day," "Top profile pics," and "Best of 2010," using each photo's number of "likes" and comments. The "popular" categories are pret...

Picasa gets new Web zoom viewer and more EXIF data

Picasa Web Albums, the online half of Google's Picasa software/service duo, has received a new zoom viewer that is powered by Adobe's Flash. Clicking on the familiar magnifying glass that sits next to a photo lets you zoom in or out on a rectangular selection. This feature is apparently being called 'microscope zoom', and you absolutely have to have the Flash plug-in installed for it to work, sin...

FlickSquare automatically sends your Foursquare check-in photos to Flickr

Last week Foursquare rolled out an incredibly important and contemporary new feature: check-in photos. Foursquare is a far cry from being a primary photo-sharing site, however, which is why a quick-thinking developer has made a Web app that automatically forwards your Foursquare photos to Flickr: FlickSquare. All you need to do is sign into your Foursquare account, connect with FlickSquare, and...

Yelp's new iPad app is a feast for the eyes

Yelp, the social reviews network known for its community of food-obsessed users, now has a Yelp iPad app to complement its previous mobile offerings. The iPad's large screen is a treat for food lovers, allowing for larger photos of venues and their dishes. It's as if Yelp and Foodspotting -- the mobile food photo app -- had a gorgeous, iPad-sized baby. According to Yelp, "It's a whole frigging new...

Facebook Photos, now with facial recognition auto-tagging

Facebook, in a continuing drive to upgrade the most popular portion of its site, will roll out facial recognition auto-tagging of photos in the next few weeks -- if you live in the US, anyway. Now, when you upload photos, Facebook will compare the faces in the photos with the faces of your friends. If a match is found, you'll be prompted with a suggested tag. If Facebook can't identify a perso...
