Free Applications Provide 1 Click Photo-Sharing From BlackBerry Smartphones
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SnapMyLife, a leading mobile photo-sharing site, today announced the launch of two free camera-oriented applications for BlackBerry smartphones®* from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM). Both the SnapMyLife and Snap2Twitter applications are now available on BlackBerry App World™.
The SnapMyLife application enables BlackBerry smartphone users to instantly snap pictures and share them with friends, family or the world. The application is seamlessly integrated with a BlackBerry smartphone’s camera, and users can post new pictures with a single click. BlackBerry smartphone users can also add titles, tag photos and change privacy settings for each picture upload.
The Snap2Twitter application is designed specifically for consumers who want to use their BlackBerry smartphone to post pictures to their Twitter accounts.
