Solving the flash portfolio - iPhone viewing dilemma for photographers
In a recent article by Scott Kelby (http://www.scottkelby.com/blog/2010/archives/9503), he describes that the industry is struggling to find a solution for showcasing flash portfolios on the iPhone or iPad. By using Jalbum albums built in Media RSS files to fetch photos and captions, the Jalbum iPhone app solves this problem. All customized photo albums whether they are flash, HTML or java-script based are equally displayed in a beautiful viewing experience on the iPhone.
"Our vision is to provide total freedom in where and how photos are presented. Adding the iPhone app is in line with this vision and allows for on-the-go updates to Jalbum albums.", says Carl Manneh, CEO of Jalbum.
Jalbum has enabled amateur and professional photographers alike to publish more than 30 million photo albums. With Jalbum you easily create your own photo album site, and publish it anywhere. The first version of Jalbum software was released as a hobby project by founder David Ekholm in 2002. The desktop application is now started every 3 seconds globally, displayed on this live map: http://jalbum.net/maps/downloads
