FotoSwipe makes sharing photos between iOS and Android a breeze

If you've ever wanted to share photos between iPhones and Android phones, you know how inconvenient it can be. You can text or email, but only if you know someone's number or address. That's fine for friends or family, but quickly breaks down at parties, conferences, or meetings of any kind. Well, I and many of our awesome iMore forum members recently had the chance to help test out an app that makes it easy—FotoSwipe.

With FotoSwipe, you simply drag-and-drop images between iOS and Android devices. That's it. You don't need phone numbers or email addresses or any personal information. All you need to make the magic happen is the FotoSwipe app on each device.

Thanks in part to the efforts and feedback of the iMore community, FotoSwipe is locked, loaded, and ready to download for free in the App Store and Google Play!

FotoSwipe Launches Revolutionary Photo-Video-Sharing App Featuring First Ever Drag-and-Drop Between Mobile Devices

Simple One-Finger Swipe Technology Makes Cross Platform Photo-Video-Sharing Quick, Easy, and Fun

NEW YORK, NY– November 10, 2015 – FotoSwipe, a mobile photo-sharing app that allows users to instantly share photos and video across mobile platforms, today announced it has launched on iOS and Android. FotoSwipe is the first and only mobile application to use drag-and-drop technology between devices, enabling users to easily share an unlimited number of photos with a single swipe from one mobile device to another without exchanging contact information. To see how the application works, watch the video here.

FotoSwipe eliminates the pain of antiquated photo-sharing methods like text or email attachments, which are slow and cumbersome, especially when transferring more than a few photos. The app offers a simple, elegant, and lightning fast solution to allow users to privately exchange digital memories, safely storing them in the phone's native gallery. FotoSwipe lets users send thousands of full-resolution images and even video between devices with the simplicity of a familiar drag-and-drop gesture. Photos are transferred in seconds between screens.

"We developed FotoSwipe to take photo-sharing back to basics and provide an easy and simple way to send images from one mobile user to the next," said Sylvain Dufour, FotoSwipe Founder & CEO. "With an onslaught of apps that offer multiple services, today's platforms are becoming increasingly complex and we recognized a need for simplicity. We've all faced the same difficulty of sending and receiving large quantities of images over text and email. Simply put, FotoSwipe eliminates that problem with an innovative and speedy solution that makes photo-sharing fun, instead of a labor intensive chore."

FotoSwipe is ideal for social outings like weddings, birthday parties, and kids' soccer games, where friends and family members take many photos and need to share them with each other. The app's patent-pending drag-and-drop technology enables users to quickly transfer all of the events' photos from one device to the next with a single swipe. FotoSwipe not only lets users share large quantities of full resolution photos but also keeps them private. Transfers can be protected by a time-sensitive proximity key or by simply swiping from one device to another.

Even if your friends are far away, FotoSwipe still allows you to share photos and videos with the same easy swipe gesture. FotoSwipe creates a simple code that users can send via their preferred messaging app, allowing for easy sharing with anyone, anywhere. Friends who receive the code can simply tap it to launch FotoSwipe on their device and receive the photos or videos. Sharing codes are valid for 24 hours and can be sent to as many friends and family as desired.

FotoSwipe is free and available to download now on iPad and iPhone on iOS 7 or later and on Google Play. For more information, visit
