iStockphoto delivers iPhone App for browsing and sharing photos

Posted by Sarah Blue

Calgary's iStockphoto has untethered its community today with the delivery of an iPhone application that allows users to browse iStock’s vast library of photos, illustrations and audio files from an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch. The application uses iStock’s industry-leading search engine to help customers find the perfect file quickly and easily. Customers can access and manage lightboxes of stored files from their existing iStockphoto account or create new lightboxes to save files for future viewing or purchase. The app also allows files to be e-mailed to clients and colleagues for discussion and evaluation.

In addition, the new app allows the more then 80,000 contributing artists whose work is sold on iStockphoto, to track their sales and view download statistics, even while on the go.

“Inspiration and ideas often strike when least expected,” said Kelly Thompson, COO of iStockphoto. “This application lets us be there for our community whenever and wherever that happens.”

The iStockphoto application is available free of charge from the Apple iTunes store or at www.istockphoto.com/iphone. Watch this space for iStockphoto’s iPad app, soon to follow.
