Google’s Photovine Now Open to the Public

Posted by at 9:16 am on August 17, 2011

Photovine, Google’s newest photo-sharing service, has opened up access to the general public via an iOS app update. Previously access to the service was limited to invites, much like other Google projects. Photovine distinguishes itself from most social networks by revolving not around individual users, but rather “vines,” photo collections united by a single theme.

The service is still restricted to iOS devices however, and the v1.3 app remains without a native iPad interface. It does however make several improvements, including the ability to send photos to Facebook or Twitter, or find new contacts on the same networks. Invites can now be sent out through SMS and email.

Notes added to posts in the update are inserted as initial comments. The update also fixes a crash caused by posting a photo when a feed has a timeline break. Photovine 1.3 is a free download, and runs on any handheld using iOS 4.2 or better.
