Quickly upload up to 8 photos to Facebook at once with PixUploader for iPhone

The most popular photo sharing website is Facebook, yet uploading more than one photo at once is a repetitive process -- you must select each photo one at a time. PixUploader for iPhone does a much better job at streamlining the selection process and will even automatically select your most recent photos when you launch the app.

PixUploader is extremely easy to use. You can set up PixUploader to automatically add the most recent 1-8 photos in your Camera Roll when you launch the app. If you decide against uploading a selected image, you simply flick it away. To select more photos, just tap Add Photos.

Before starting the upload, you can select which Facebook album to upload the photos to, add cations, and tag your friends. If you tap on one of the thumbnails of the photos you've selected to upload, the image will open full size with a caption field to fill in. If you tap on the image, a list of your Facebook friends will slide up so that you can tag them in your photo. PixUploader will show a gray square on the area you can expect the tag to appear. Tapping this square will give you the option to delete the tag.

When your photos are ready to upload, just simply tap Upload and PixUploader will immediately start uploading them. They'll be uploaded one at a time at an acceptable rate. Eight photos will take more than a few seconds, however, but the good news is that PixUploader will continue uploading in the background if you want to switch over to another app.

The Good

  • Easy to use
  • Fast
  • Upload up to 8 photos
  • Add captions
  • Tag friends
  • Select which album to upload to
  • Uploads in the background
  • Choose to have PixUploader to automatically select your most recent
  • Has two color schemes: blue and orange

The Bad

  • Why limit to only 8 photos?

The bottom line

PixUploader is a great way to share multiple photos to Facebook at once. The ability to add captions and tag friends makes it so you don't have to make any changes to Facebook after the photos have been uploaded. There have been many times that I only shared one photo to Facebook because it takes too long with the Facebook app. Now, I'll just use PixUploader.

There is also a free version of PixUploader that has a max limit of 4 images at a time and does not allow you to tag your friends and it's ad supported. The free version is a great way to test out PixUploader before you commit to buying it, though.

Quickly upload up to 8 photos to Facebook at once with PixUploader for iPhone


I have been able to upload at least 8 photos at one time with the Facebook app for iphone. It maybe easier with this app but i just wanted to let you know that before anyone else hops on and starts contesting it.

Holy crap I'm so embarrassed. I totally thought Facebook only allowed one photo at a time! I feel like a total idiot right now. Sorry about that.
PixUploader's implementation is much better though :)

I'm the developer of PixUploader, thanks for the review!
Just wanted to point out that PixUploader Lite does allow you to add caption, though tagging is indeed a full-version-only feature.
As for the limit of 8 photos, this limit is there currently due to screen size limitation as we wanted to make it really easily to rearrange or remove the selected photos, so we thought it best to display all the selected photos on screen at the same time. We will see if there is any way we can increase the number. Thanks for the feedback!

I bought the full version and immediately uploaded 8 snaps, all under 5 min. It would have been faster on a wi-fi connection. I love it. No crashing here.

Hi Richard,
As mentioned in the email reply to you, we are very sorry that you have encountered problems with the app, and we are currently investigating the cause of the crash you are encountering. This could be due to some compatibility issues with the latest iOS 5.1. We seek your kind understanding and patience while we look into this issue.
Thank you.

You can absolutely upload multiple pictures with the Facebook app. I do it all the time.

have had numerous emails from the dev's still not working i know its only 99 cents but it is not a good app buyer beware!!!!

Hi Richard,
As mentioned in the emails, we have performed testing on the function you mentioned but we could not reproduce the issue you mentioned. We have also checked with beta testers and they did not have the issue either. We also understand and respect your reason for not wanting to try with a separate build.
We will continue to test on this. Thank you.

Color (for Facebook) also does this. When it comes to photo uploading apps, it's best to research to choose the best one for your needs.

My brother recommended I may like this website. He used to be entirely right. This post actually made my day. You cann't imagine simply how so much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

hi can u upload multiple pics at once as an album rather than individual oics and to groups instead of ur own profile
