Last month, Nikon revealed the Coolpix S800c, the first mainstream digital camera to be based around Google's Android operating system. Today, it turns out that the greater Android ecosystem will also benefit from that camera, as the first app created for that camera also turns out to support many other Android devices.

The new Nikon my Picturetown app for the S800c allows viewing of photos stored on the my Picturetown sharing service, including a map view for photos that are geotagged. You can also set up offline viewing of photos by temporarily saving them on the camera, share them on Facebook or Twitter, or share them with contacts in your address book. Additionally, there are tools to manage your account, albums, and folders.


As well as the Nikon S800c, the my Picturetown app explicitly supports eleven different Japanese-market cellphones:

  • KDDI Medias BR IS11N

  • Panasonic Lumix Phone 101P, My Fit P-01D, P-07C, and Sweety 003P

  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and Galaxy S II SC-02C

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia acro HD 1212S, Xperia arc SO-01C, Xperia ray SO-03C, and Xperia PLAY SO-01D

However, while other devices don't have this explicit support, many will work--not just smartphones, but tablets as well. The app can be installed on Android devices running Android 2.3.3 or later.

If you'd like to try the app, you can get it now on the Google Play store.
