Review: PhotoCircle is a fun and easy-to-use group photo sharing tool

Share photos and streamline interaction with friends in this fun and easy-to-use iOS app.

PhotoCircle is a tool for sharing photos between friends that offers many fun new features. It has a colorful and streamlined interface, and it's easy to see how those who like to share photos can find it not only valuable, but also a must-have app on their iOS device.

PhotoCircle requires a log-in or a Facebook profile, presumably to keep the photos you share private. Once created, you can immediately start creating albums and inviting users. You create an album, add images from your iOS device, and then you can invite users to the album through e-mail, text, or with a pin that works for 48 hours. You can also extend the pin by e-mailing support, which is a nice feature but went untested in this review. PhotoCircle also allows you to download any and all photos in the camera roll. There did not appear to be any bugs and the process to use the application went very smoothly. The interface is also colorful and streamlined -- a perfect fit for an app that is designed to streamline an action almost every iOS user performs daily.

Photo sharing is usually messy, and while there are many different ways to share photos online, PhotoCircle is certainly a good option. The pin number and easy sharing are well-implemented, and since PhotoCircle reloads albums automatically, it's easy to see how this app may be valuable for parties, vacations, weddings, and anything that involves group picture taking. PhotoCircle is certainly worth the download.
