PRESS RELEASE: PhotoRocket, the Radically Simple, One-Step Solution for Instantly Sharing Photos Arrives for Windows, Mac and iPhone
Share Photos to Friends, Family, Social Networks and Photo Sites in One Step; No Registration or Account Login Required to View or Download Full Resolution Photos
PALM DESERT, CA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - DEMO Spring 2011 Conference --PhotoRocket, the radically simple, one-step solution to instantly share photos from computers and mobile devices to friends, family, social networks like Facebook and popular photo sharing destinations like Flickr and Shutterfly, today announced the availability of its free photo sharing service and downloadable apps for Windows, Mac and iPhone.
PhotoRocket brings simplicity to recipients of photos, as well, because there is no registration, login or account information required to view or download photos. If recipients decide to register with PhotoRocket, they can re-share photos or purchase high quality prints just as easily.
"This is not another photo sharing website or service. PhotoRocket represents a revolutionary step in sharing. You'll never need to email or upload a photo ever again," said PhotoRocket founder Scott Lipsky. "PhotoRocket completely changes how we think of sharing photos by making it incredibly easy for senders and recipients: One step to share multiple photos with your friends or groups of friends. One step to publish photos across social and photo sharing sites. One step for recipients to view, re-share and download high-resolution images. One step to view all your photos, anytime, on-demand," continued Lipsky.
One of the best things about PhotoRocket is that it's also a great place to store and view photos, because PhotoRocket eliminates the puzzle of remembering who sent which photos, where, when or how, or what photo sharing site they're on; or which mobile device, Mac or Windows PC they may be stored on.
PhotoRocket also eliminates scattered web links and file attachments by consolidating images into a personal viewing experience that includes all the photos shared or received from anyone else who uses PhotoRocket. Not only are photos conveniently archived by sender and date, but PhotoRocket makes it simple to view or download full resolution images at any time, from virtually any location.
PhotoRocket is incredibly easy to use:
- From a Windows or Mac computer, simply right click on photos wherever you see them. Or, drag & drop photos into the PhotoRocket app. On your iPhone, share photos directly from the camera or camera roll simultaneously with photos from your PhotoRocket repository in the cloud.
- Select recipients from your contact list and then click Share. You can also add new contacts if you need, and select social network sites or photo sharing destinations at the same time.
- Recipients receive a simple email notification that photos have been shared via PhotoRocket and are ready to view, download, re-share and more.
PhotoRocket synchronizes contacts and photos shared across platforms and devices. PhotoRocket delivers full-resolution images, and also acts as a single, cloud-based repository with automatic back-up every time photos are shared or received.
PhotoRocket was selected by DEMO as the official photo sharing service for the DEMO Spring 2011 conference.
PhotoRocket was founded by Mr. Lipsky, who co-founded and was CTO at aQuantive (acquired by Microsoft in 2007 for over $6 billion), and was one of the earliest employees at Amazon.com where he was Vice President of Business Expansion.
PhotoRocket enables you to share any number of photos to any number of people and places in an instant. Share to family and friends, post to Facebook (or other favorite sites) and archive your photos for safekeeping, all in one simple step. PhotoRocket is available for Windows, Mac and iPhone (with Android and Windows Mobile coming soon), and has no restrictions on downloading full resolution images.
