Since I'm using the Eye-Fi SD card with my cameras, I wished to have access to the uploaded photos and videos from my mobile phone. For instance I've used the Eye-Fi Pro card at the recent Mobile World Congress to live-upload photos from press conferences and the exhibition, straight from my Nikon camera, using a Novatel MiFi. While there's a workaround to do it that way, it's pretty limited and I always wished to have further access to the photos and videos. Now, Eye-Fi announced that it has launched the Eye-Fi Mobile Center Beta which allows users view photos on a smartphone, select photos to share online, edit tags, description for future card uploads as well as viewing and changing most Eye-Fi card settings straight from the phone.
However, the Eye-Fi Mobile Center Beta isn't an application at all but just a mobile optimized website which is good because therefore it works with most of today's smartphone browsers but therefore the Mobile Center has also its limitations since the it's unable to receive photos directly on a smartphone neither it replaces the desktop Eye-Fi Center. However, according to Eye-Fi, more options are planned to coming soon.
The Eye-Fi Mobile Center Beta is now open for public testing but for sure it requires an Ey-Fi SD card. However, it's not only supporting the new Eye-Fi X2 cards but also the first generation of Eye-Fi memory cards.
