Sharpcast, Inc., a pioneer in personal media synchronization and management, today released Sharpcast Photos Beta, an all-in-one solution that delivers the absolute simplest way to share, sync, back up and access digital photos from anywhere. Sharpcast Photos keeps PCs, the web and mobile phones automatically in sync, so people can view and manage their photo collection from any time and anywhere they want, whether they are online or off.
Current Sharpcast Photos Alpha users can upgrade by simply launching Sharpcast Photos Alpha on their desktop to begin the quick auto-update. Sharpcast Photos eliminates the complexities of accessing, sharing and backing up photos by keeping a person's desktop photo collection automatically synced with the web, other PCs and optionally with a mobile phone.
Based on Sharpcast's patent-pending universal instant synchronization
technology, Sharpcast Photos provides fast, easy access to a photo collection
from any PC, the web or a mobile phone, organized the same way everywhere and
continuously backed up. Any change made in one place, even while offline, is
automatically made everywhere else. The product stands out among contemporary
offerings for its effortless sharing, offline access to photos from anywhere,
transparent syncing to and from mobile phones, automatic back-up and
ultra-simple recovery, duplication or migration of an entire photo collection to
a brand new PC with its organization fully intact.
"Sharpcast is pioneering
the concept of applying synchronization as the single answer to several problems
- managing multiple photo collections on PCs and the web, tedious web uploads
and downloads, sharing and protecting photos, getting photos off your mobile
phone, and accessing photos remotely," said Gibu Thomas, founder and chief
executive officer of Sharpcast. "Sharpcast Photos is based on the premise that
sync works best when it's completely transparent and you don't have to think
Sharpcast Photos Beta includes several significant desktop and web
improvements to the former Alpha version, including overall performance and
usability improvements, user interface enhancements and more advanced sharing
and management features.
The Company today also released the Alpha version of
the Sharpcast Photos mobile edition, optimized in the U.S. for the Motorola Q,
the Palm Treo 700w, the Sprint PPC-6700 and the Verizon XV 6700. The Sharpcast
Photos mobile edition Alpha seamlessly synchronizes photos between mobile
phones, PCs and the web without relying on a mobile web browser, effortlessly
sending pictures taken on the phone back to the PC and the web and automatically
and elegantly displaying a person's desktop collection on their phone. Any
change made anywhere - on the phone, PC or web, is automatically made everywhere
Sharpcast plans to deliver a client for other Windows Mobile 5.0
products later this summer, and expects to announce plans for more mainstream
mobile phones by the end of this year. Other non-U.S. versions of the
above-listed smartphones can run the Sharpcast Photos mobile client, but the
company is initially supporting these U.S. versions.
Thomas added, "This beta
release introduces a brand new category of all-in-one instant synchronization
solutions for simplifying the management of digital photos. We will announce
solutions supporting more media types later this year."
