Sharing pictures is something most people enjoy doing no matter where they are or what they are doing. The ability to share pictures in the past meant getting double exposures when you originally go your pictures developed and getting more made when you went back to the developer. These days technology has arrived which will allow you to share photos with those around you without even having to hand anything to anyone. This is made possible through the new app called Color. This will save you from making additional trips, or even one trip, to the photo developer.

Using the app is very simple. You will only need to install the app in your phone or tablet. After it is installed you update the photos which you want to share with those around you. You can then instantly share your photos with those you want to share them with and get some for yourself in return. This is a benefit to you when you are with friends or even if you are at a wedding. The abilities that this new app opens up are endless as long as you are willing to offer up your photos to anyone else who has the app in your vicinity.

Installing the App

You can easily install the app much like you would any other app for your mobile device. You will simply go to the app store and install it. The information will be instantly downloaded to your mobile device after you have accepted the app and you have paid to have it installed. Give the app a few minutes to download depending on your connection speed and the device that you are uploading the app to. It is easier to use than a POS system.

Using the App

Once the app is installed on your device, you will need to make sure that you update all of the photos which you want to share with those you come into contact with. Once others who have the app installed on their mobile device come within 50 feet of you, you can capture their photos and they can capture yours. This is made possible through the use of GPS and more. You can then decide whether to keep the pictures you have captured available for others or if you want to make them centralized to your device.

Cautions When Using the App

Like anything else, there are a few things to keep in mind when using this app. The main problem is that there is no security to keep others from being able to download your photos as well. This means that anyone in the 50 foot area will have the ability to look at the pictures that you have available for sharing. This can lead to an invasion of privacy if others start to download your pictures which you did not intend to share with the public. Be sure to make sure that you are not sharing anything that you would not put on your social media sites.
