Update for Fotki iPhone app is now available!    

Hello Everyone,

We hope you all had a wonderful April and will be enjoying its last weekend before starting fresh in May. To make it even sweeter for you, we have released a new Fotki Mobile version you have been waiting for! If you haven't been prompted to update by your device, simply visit the App Store and search for Fotki. You will see our new 1.1 version and a brief description of what's been added or improved in this release.

The most important things that everyone was asking for are the ability to create albums right from your iPhone or iPad, view more than a 100 pictures at a time and have your photos and videos the right side up when you upload them!

Once you download the new version and log into your account, you can choose between Public or Private home and then check out the new "Actions" menu:

From there, you can either opt to take a second create a new album for your next upload:

or refresh a folder to view your latest upload. The latter will even happen automatically once your current upload is complete and you click "Done".

To simplify the process, we have removed the unnecessary extra steps of choosing between uploading from your roll and uploading a freshly taken shot so now you can go straight to your roll and pick the photos you want to upload. They will now upload as original, high-quality pictures and have their complete EXIF information attached to them!

Uploading process itself is now more convenient with a clear progress report:

and you can always send it to the background to continue using your device while your photos upload. Once the process is complete, you will be notified with a reassuring green checkmark and that's that!

Please enjoy the new conveniences and don't forget to share your thoughts with us. As always, feedback and new ideas are most welcomed!
