We're still sad about the demise of Everpix, but part of the grieving process is moving on, and now that service's former competitors at Picturelife are offering a sweetheart deal for those still looking for a new cloud-based home for their photos.
We've got free apps highlighted, some hints of what might be upcoming in Jony Ive's redesigns of all things iOS, and some struggles Cupertino (and developers) seem to be having with iCloud. All of that and more in this week's stories too hot to miss.
Like Captain Ahab from Moby Dick, we relentlessly seek our own white whale: A way to curate digital photos on the Mac, sync them to the cloud, and make the whole collection accessible from iOS. All of the services we’ve caught in our net thus far have been tossed overboard, but another has now surfaced on the horizon. Picturelife may not completely live up to “white whale” status, but it’s definitely worth harpooning. With the right subscription plan, we can upload even a massive library to the cloud (with a few caveats), complete with automatic organization and duplicate detection while backing up images stored across multiple social networks.
Apple's Photo Stream is great, but what about all of those photos lurking inside iPhoto or Aperture on your computer? Picturelife can push them to the cloud, and add images from almost everywhere else, too.
