QuickPic by Zach Waugh is a very nifty little app that lets you instantly upload photos to the Internet, making them available at a specific URL within seconds. QuickPic is simple, straightforward, and by far the fastest way to get photos from your iPhone or iPod touch onto the Web. Once online, it’s a snap to download the pics to your computer or share them with friends and family.
There really is not much to tell about this app. QuickPic does what it says it does and it does it well, end of story.
When you open the app you see the QuickPic logo (set in Polaroid-esq frame) with a large orange button underneath that says Choose Photo. Tap the button and you are given the choice to either take a photo or choose an existing one from your camera roll or photo library.
Once you’ve chosen a photo, it is automatically sent online using your Wi-Fi connection. The URL to the photo is displayed under the photo with a cute little green arrow. View your photo online using your computer and you are also given the choice to download the image or to view it full size.
QuickPic is great because it will upload your photos without having to plug in your iPhone, all you need is a wireless internet connection. It also works on Macs, PCs, and Linux so you will not have to worry about compatibility. Another cool thing about this app is that it lets you instantly share photos with anyone who has access to the Internet since all you have to do is give them the URL and they will be able to see the photos as well.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the same URL is used every time. When you upload a photo and then go to upload another photo the first photo will be discarded. This just means that you have to deal with the photos one at a time instead of going through a few on QuickPic and then going to your computer and typing to download them.
