Say goodbye to worrying about being in a million different places for the perfect shot, and say hello to a whole new way to share photos with friends and family.
Concept and Gameplay:
What separates OurCam from traditional photo sharing methods like email and text? For one, the app allows users to create personal groups, which is perfect for vacations or events.
Photos taken with OurCam are automatically uploaded to your group and shared with all members, so everyone can see them at the same time without having to constantly check their phone or worry about never getting the perfect picture from their Aunt Sally, who never remembers to email them.
Perhaps the neatest thing about OurCam is that it only takes a few minutes to get everything set up.
Simply create an account, enter your phone number so friends can connect to you with the app, and create your first album. You can easily add friends to shared albums via contacts or phone number.
Once you have an account and a photo album created, feel free to start snapping pictures. You can even upload existing pictures from your Camera Roll.
Unlike similar photo sharing apps which require you to be on the same wifi network or have other restrictions, OurCam doesn’t limit who you can share photos with.
OurCam is perfect for gatherings like weddings, family vacations, business conferences, or even for creating albums between friends in lieu of sending photos via email and text.
OurCam is loaded with great features, including the ability to chat with members of your group album. This helps to keep albums focused on specific events, plus it encourages interaction among people who are sharing the same experience.
Also, users can add captions, group chat with photos, and add a star to photos they like making it very easy to keep track of favorite pics on-the-fly.
Lastly, OurCam users can easily share photos across various social networking and OS platforms. For example, if any of your friends are on Android (why?), they can use OurCam’s Android version of the app.
Users can also opt to receive push notifications when a new photo is uploaded to an album they’re a member of.
OurCam is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone.
This is definitely a “what you see is what you get” kind of app, and what you get is a fantastic way to share photos with friends and family quickly and easily.
OurCam requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
