Bump’s New App Flock Creates Shared Photo Albums With Friends Without Interrupting Your Life

Flock App FeaturePhotos save our memories, yet fumbling to upload them can cut those moments short. But Flock lets you snap and forget, and then later collects photos from you and friends you were with into privately shared albums. Flock for iOS combines brilliant social design with the underutilized photo location API to simplify sharing. Instead of clumsily selecting privacy settings, it suggests you share with any of your Facebook friends who use Flock and also took photos at the same time and place.

Flock is the new app from the makers of Bump. Alongside Pay With Square, it could lead a movement of apps that we don’t have to remember to use, but instead just magically take care of us.

YC-Backed Chute Nabs $2.7M From Salesforce & More To Become The Twilio For Media Content

logo-largeChute knows you’re tired of hearing about yet another photo-sharing or photo-syncing app. So, although it dwells in the photo sphere, thankfully Chute is taking a different approach. The recent Y Combinator grad set out to become the go-to service that app developers and content producers turn to for managing and enhancing photos in their app or on their website. You can think of Chute as a Twilio for photos, or if you’re into cloud-inspired taxonomy, as an Images-as-a-Service startup.

While photos are Chute’s bread and butter, the startup has also begun to see demand for functionality that extends beyond the photo field. Not surprisingly, there are more than a few businesses and app developers looking for some help in capturing, managing, and displaying their media files. NBCNews.com, Taylormade and L.A. Live, for example, have already tapped Chute to do just that. So, to help expand its scope and begin scaling, the startup announced today that it has taken on $2.7 million in seed funding from a handful of top investors.

YC-Backed Photo Sharing Service PicPlum Gets A Revamp; Mobile App & API Are Next

picplum-fb-logoPicPlum, the Y Combinator-backed photo-sharing and printing startup that debuted last summer, is rolling out a major upgrade today. The focus, for the most part, has been on an improved user experience, offering everything from minor tweaks like address autocompletion, to new product offerings like more print sizes. But as a regular PicPlum user, I’m more excited about what they’re working on next: a mobile application and API that will allow any other developers to offer “print photos” from their camera or photo-sharing application.
