Swirl: collect the photos that your friends share on Twitter and Instagram

Swirl: collect the photos that your friends share on Twitter and Instagram

The photos have become one of the most shared content through social networks like Facebook or Twitter, either because the climb directly (from our mobile, our tablet or our camera) or previously had services like (with which we give a special touch and we can share through our social profiles). Major appointments, events or meetings with our friends can be the source of a number of images that we share through and our friends and other users also share, probably under the same hashtag ; images that we may collect comfortably in an album thanks to an application that comes from the hand of Betaworks One (the company relaunched Digg): #swirl

#Swirl is an application that, for now, only available for devices (devices with iOS 5.0 or higher installed) and allows us to collect the images that our friends have been posting on Twitter and Instagram about an event or a significant milestone ie photographs published under the same hashtag (which serves as a thread to gather all the material).

The concept is quite simple, say you’re at an event and, while we will comment on Twitter, we all use the same hashtag to mark publications. With this application, after linking our accounts on Twitter and Instagram, capturing the images posted go with our friends (treated as people who follow both services) and storing them in an album. Besides being linked our accounts on Twitter and Instagram, you can access the comments and likes that images that are part of the album have received, becoming thus a # in a curious customer of these social networks.

Logically, the only requirement is to use us to agree with our friends in choosing a single hashtag to use in publications and, although the mechanism is simple, the result is really interesting because we concentrated all the images we have generated in a very comfortable (and not required to send invitations and disturb other users).

If lanzasen application for other platforms such as Android, would be great.
