I have tried what photo applications that were out there for the BB and Ascendo blows them out of the water. By far the best program to date with the ease of the UI to the installation. Simply a breeze to work with. Kudos to the team at Ascendo.
Does everything I was looking for in a photo manager for the Blackberry. Getting items on the device was simple and the images appear crisp. The ability to categorize images is a nice feature as well as marking some private.
I've used V2 of Ascendo Photo since it's inception. It was "Best of Breed" then and has lead to several sales of my photographs. What impressed me, second to the programs function and performance, was the interest of the author to consider the input of professional photographers. Several of my "feature requests" are in V3 of Ascendo Photo! Thank you folks!! Hold off on V4 ... I'm having too much fun with V3.
On past family vactions we used an ordinary 35mm camera to take pictures of our experiences and we shared them with friends and family using the paper photos you'd get from developing them. Now we're using a digital camera and not developing on paper. We wanted a way to share our photos when we got together with friends and family and the Ascendo Photos for BlackBerry was a perfect fit.
Another must-have application from Ascendo. How do you get photos to your device? E-mail them to yourself...? Upload them to a web server and view/save...? Why? With the Ascendo Photos desktop application that connects directly to your device, you simply load the image, resize to your device, hit a button... done! You can organize the photos into galleries, run a slide show (screen saver) and even e-mail an image directly from the Photos application. This is the third Ascendo product I own (DataVault and Money). I cannot recommend their products enough! But don't take my word for it... download the trials and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
I purchased this product a year ago after trying several others, I travel quite a bit and I found the ability to be able to not only carry family photos with me everywhere, but other pictures I've taken of interest everywhere I go. Recently I had my Blackberry stolen and found it necessary to replace it, I contacted developer support asking would the software work with my new BB and would it be necessary to repurchase the software. The reply was quick, I was told I would not need to repurchase the software, I was instructed on how to re-download and install both the software and desktop and. This is a truly wonderful product that I find when I travel it's indispensable in keeping the family around with new and fun family photos, and your turn around time in helping me is truly fantastic, I've always spoken about your product, but the support is equally as superior.
I don't make it a point to enter reviews like this. But when I come across an exceptional product from exceptional developers with world-class customer service, it feels right for me to speak up. Whether it's their Photo program, their Money program, or new Health and Fitness programs, having Ascendo on your Blackberry is like having Windows on your PC; vital for enjoying its full use. Ascendo sets the pace and leaves the competition in the dust. Ascendo Photo is just another example. Demo the other products and you'll be amazed at how much more useful your Blackberry can be.
Professional photographer here - Awesome product. Easy installation. Organize your photos into multiple albums. Very simple to install and use. Any photo on your computer is easily sized to fit the screen perfectly. Can email from computer only at this time. Would love to see ability to email directly from the Blackberry when not connected to computer. Maybe in a future version. I highly recommend this product.
