Photoblab 1.0.4 Review

Record audio notes for your favorite photos and share them with the world.

App developers are finding more creative ways to share content on the iPhone with every passing year. From Instagram to Vine, the number of camera-oriented tools that refine the very idea of social sharing is constantly growing as the technology evolves. Photoblab looks poised to join the list of tools that tech-savvy, social individuals use to reach out to friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, and other social outlets.

Photoblab is a lot like the services mentioned above. You must register (though you can connect a Facebook account if you choose) and the home interface is a stream of content produced by other users. You can follow other people, they can follow you, and you can share your content directly to other social networks. The main difference, however, is the type of content you create and share. Photoblabs are still photos with audio recordings. So they can be slideshows or they can be short messages you share with people that include photos to illustrate your point. The service is new, so people are mostly experimenting, but we can imagine quite a few creative uses for the app in the future.

Photoblab is a lot of fun to use, the interface is intuitive and clean, the sharing features are quick, and the community is growing rapidly. While any app doing so much is bound to have hiccups, small bugs, and performance issues during heavy load times, on the whole, it works extremely well and we found the combination of audio and photos not only intriguing, but incredibly addictive.
