If you’re tired of posting photos on Twitter where the whole world can see them, or get confused by the privacy settings on your Facebook account, Tracks may be just the social photo sharing solution you’ve been praying for.
Sharing photos on the Internet can be a tricky business these days. Family members can be reluctant or even outright hostile to the idea of sharing pictures of newborns online. A picture of you drinking a single beer may be innocent enough, but your teetotaler boss might just freak out if he saw them.
And sometimes, there are relationship memories you want to keep just between you and your partner. These reasons and more are perfect rationales for using Tracks.
Featuring a clean, elegant timeline, the design of Tracks only serves to make your own photos look even better. The smart design is functional, easy to navigate, and makes the whole user experience mightily enjoyable, no matter how many photos you choose to share.
You can access photos even without a network connection, as well as viewing photos on their website. The current iteration of Tracks features 10 custom designed live photo and video filters, an in-app camera with a manual focus, geotagging for your images.
And yes, somewhat counter-intuitively, Tracks does also let you enable sharing for both Facebook and Twitter, so you don’t have to switch between apps when you want to share a photo more publicly.
All in all, this useful iPhone app fills an important niche in the photo and video sharing marketplace, and is absolutely worth your attention.
Tracks: Share Privately is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
