In the past few weeks we’ve looked at a few photo sharing BlackBerry apps. It started with a couple and then moved onto Radical Draw, which seems to be one of the better ones, if not the best one, out there. But once you edit your photos what are you going to do with them? There are plenty of image hosting and sharing services out there, and unsurprisingly many have BlackBerry apps. After the jump we’ll go over the major ones that exist right now. As always, feel free to add your favorites in the comments.
The idea for this post came from BerryReview’s post on bbCasa, the new Picasa BlackBerry app. RIM apparently had an official Picasa app in the works a while ago, but ended up canceling it. That left users to the less than optimal web interface. A third party has stepped in to create the unofficial app. Unfortunately, that means it costs a little. You can get bbCasa for $2.99.
There are dozens of photo hosting and sharing services on the web, but Flickr might be the most popular among them. With the BlackBerry app you can take care of most major functions like upload, send via SMS or email, and add location tags. This one, fortunately, is free. You can head to http://mobile.yahoo.com/flickr/blackberry and have a link sent to your phone, or you can just navigate to get Photobucket Mobile at App World.
It was only a matter of time before there was a mobile-centric image hosting and sharing service. That’s iTookThisOnMyPhone. Not only can you upload photos to the iTookThisOnMyPhone network, but you can also share videos through social media services like Facebook and Twitter. You can get iTookThisOnMyPhone for free.
The ImageShack BlackBerry app isn’t actually ImageShack. Rather, it’s Yfrog, an image uploading and sharing service that is typically associated with Twitter. This means that the app itself does have Twitter integration. You can download Yfrog to your computer, or you can go to http://toolbar.imageshack.us/blackberry from your BlackBerry device.
