Officially released today, FotoSwipe makes it incredibly easy to share photos between Android and iOS devices. The app lets you share photos by swiping your finger from one device to the other (both devices must have FotoSwipe installed). I've successfully tested it out across the various Android and iOS devices I have laying around my office, and in all cases it works seamlessly. Simply open the app on both devices, tap and hold a photo, swipe to the device you'd like to send the photo to... and you're done. Easy. The app doesn't require users to register, and you don't need to be on Wi-Fi.
FotoSwipe isn't limited to sharing between just two devices either. Perfect example: Let's say you're at a party (with some friends and some strangers) and you take a group photo. Everybody has their Android phone or iPhone with them would like a copy of that photo. With FotoSwipe installed on each device, you simply would bring the phones near each other with FotoSwipe open, and the person who snapped the photo would then swipe it over onto each phone in rapid succession - no need to exchange email and sent contact info, no need for NFC, no worrying about whether or not your bluetooth is on or off. Watch the video above to see it in action.
FotoSwipe is free to download, works cross platform, across any network, and no sign-up or registration is required. Get in in Google Play right here.
Why am I blogging about this app?
Some time ago a dedicated group of community members worked with us on some exciting beta testing programs. One of these programs included the beta version of the FotoSwipe app. With the help of our members, the FotoSwipe app was tested and shaped into the finished version you see before you today.
Community members like YOU made this app awesome.
If you're a dev, take note, because this is the start of something really good. We're looking to expand our developer program here at Android Central and across all of Mobile Nations (We recently revamped the Windows Central developer program, and the feedback has been amazing).
If you're an Android developer (doesn't matter if you're a newbie or a seasoned vet), I want you to reach out to me directly. Our new program will pack a lot of great perks and features (like beta testing) for all Android developers, but we can't do it without your help.
