Need to get pictures off of your iPhone or iPod Touch? There’s an app for that.
We recently reported on a survey that showed 69 percent of people still didn’t know how to get images off of their camera phones. Â While the results were a bit suspect as the survey wasÂ conductedÂ by a company that makes tools to get pictures off of phones, it did still seem to be in the realm of possibility. Â If you are an iPhone user, things are getting a whole lot easier for you rather quickly.
Kodak has announced a new free application for the iPhone and iPod Touch called the Pic Flick App. The new application will allow you to share any images shot with your iPhone camera, or any pictures stored on your iPod Touch, with the Kodak W1020 Wireless Digital Frame or you can send them to the Kodak ESP 5250 All-in-One WiFi-enabled Printer for printing. Â The printer can produce images at 2×3 to 8.5×11 inches.
According to the information site, it only takes four steps to accomplish either of these duties with the app.
Kodak isn’t the only company looking to ease the transition from iPhone to printer, though. Â Canon already released its Easy-PhotoPrint for iPhone last month, and the nice thing is that it connects via Wi-Fi with more printers and print sizes. Â As opposed to the Kodak app currently being tied to one printer, the Canon app will work with any printer that is PIXMAÂ compatible. Â It will print to the sizes 8.5″ x 11″, A4, A5, B5, 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″, card and wide.
What both of these apps are lacking is an easy way to just move the images to your computer, but that can be somewhat worked around by just emailing images to yourself via the built-in mail application. Â Easy connection via Wi-Fi is coming, if the Eye-Fi memory cards can do it, it isn’t difficult to imagine the iPhone and iPod Touch can do it also.
