Nikon has just announced the launch of its official my Picturetown Pad app for iOS devices. Built for users of my Picturetown, Nikon’s online image sharing and storage service, it gives iOS users a more convenient way to access and manage their photo and video collections online. It lets users browse through their uploaded content, manage and organize them and even store them on the device for offline browsing at a later time.
It allows playback of Motion Snapshot data for picture/videos taken with Nikon’s new Nikon 1, Advanced Camera with interchangeable lens (the Motion Snapshot function records a still image and roughly a second of movie footage beginning before and ending after the time the shutter-release button was pressed). A Book view option lets users view their photographs as though they were browsing a magazine, and Map view allows users to sort their images by location on a map.
And of course, you have the usual array of sharing options like Facebook or Twitter. The app is available now for free on the Apple App Store and works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch running on iOS 4.2 and above.
