Western Digital launches WD Photos app for Android

WD offers Android app for remote pic viewing

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Nov 3, 2010 7:00 pm

If you are anything like me, you probably have tons more photos of your family than you want to carry with you on your smartphone. Or you may have your device so crammed with apps and books that there just isn't enough room for your photos to be stored locally. If this is the case, you can use something like the Western Digital WD Photos app to access your photos remotely when you want to see them or share them.

The app has been available for some smartphones for a while, but a version of the app for Android devices has just been announced. The new Android app is on the Android Market right now free of charge and works with the My Book Live home network drive. The app will run on all Android devices and lets you see the photos in the native resolution.

 

The app allows the user to sort photos by name or the date the pic was taken. You can use it to scroll through thumbnail previews and then click the thumbnail for a larger view of the photo. All pics are resized automatically for viewing on the phone and originals are left on the drive. The user can access photos they looked at before offline and use the photos to assign to a contact on the phone or to share on Facebook or Twitter.
