Despite the fact my phone has a very average camera in it sometimes it's handy to be able to take a quick snap and share it with folks.
I can upload it to Spaces with the in-built functionality, but it doesn't make it easy to Twitter it or send it to Flickr.
Until, that is, I discovered a new (still in beta so be gentle) service called MobyPicture.
They do one thing, and they do it really well.
You take a snapshot on your camera phone and then send it either as an MMS message or as an attachment to an email and they recognize who it's being sent to and perform what magic you've asked them to do.
You can either just store it on their site. A good starting point because you can always reference it manually from a blog or point someone to your moblog but it doesn't end there.
By adding your Twitter credentials they can post a message pointing folks to the phone.
By giving your Flickr account they can upload the photo to Flickr with some pre-defined tags
In fact there's quite a list of places you can send to (and you can send to none, one or all if you so choose). As well as the ones above MobyPicture also supports:
- Distribution to Hyves
- Distribution to Tumblr
- Distribution to Blogger
- Distribution to Wordpress
- Distribution to Jaiku
- Distribution to Kyte.tv
- Distribution to Splashcast
- and more to come... (hopefully Facebook and Spaces)
Now all they need is a native Windows Mobile app (like TinyTwitter) that can grab the photo, let me rotate and crop if needed and then send it and I'll be really happy ;)
