Google debuts iPhone-, iPod touch-optimized Picasa

“If you’ve ever picked up an iPhone, you know that it’s great for showing off digital photos. iPhones have a high-resolution screen that’s big, bright, and crisp, and a first-class web browser that supports complex web technologies like AJAX. Put these two together, and it’s probably fair to say that Apple’s iPhone offers one of the best platforms for experiencing the mobile version of Picasa Web Albums,” Karen Groenink, Google User Experience Designer, blogs for The Official Google Photos Blog.

Groenink reports, “Today, we’re happy to tell you about an extra bonus for iPhone users who visit the mobile version of Picasa Web Albums. You’ll see that we’ve completely redesigned and optimized the interface specifically for iPhones. Pictures are proportioned to fit the iPhone’s screen dimensions, and we’ve tweaked the key buttons so they’re easier to navigate with your fingertips. Best of all, we’ve launched a new iPhone-only slideshow feature that automatically flips through your favorite photo albums.”
