ZeroDesktop Inc., San Mateo, Calif., a developer of free content-management tools and Web apps, announced “ZeroPC Photo Connect,” a photo management tool for aggregating photos from various cloud services. The free ZeroPC Photo Connect app is available now in the Google Play Android Apps Storewith additional plans to expand to iPhones, the company claims. ZeroPC Photo Connect provides a single-site solution for people to aggregate, to manage and to share all of the photos stored in their mobile phones and in services including Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Evernote, Dropbox, SkyDrive, Instagram, Box.net, and SugarSync.
“With the proliferation of many cloud photo services and the adoption of digital cameras and smartphones, photo generation and storage have combined, making it increasingly difficult for people to find, access and share their photos in one place,” says Young Song, founder and CEO, ZeroDesktop. “We recognized the need to create a comprehensive photo management utility combined with ZeroPC’s cross-platform cloud content management service that enables people to seamlessly organize their scattered photo content.”
The app offers automatic syncing of photos from a mobile phone to the cloud for unified access and management with a “sync-on” Wi-Fi option. It collects and manages the user’s photo memories and populate into a unique “timeline” presentation. ZeroPC also provides a built-in search feature for entering keywords or tags.
An innovative “virtual album” mashup feature consolidates all of the user’s photos from multiple cloud services plus local photos from mobile phones. After creating their virtual albums, users can easily tag and organize photos plus share albums with friends and family.
