5 out of 5


Easily organize, store, and share your digital photos on the Photobucket Web service directly from your mobile phone.

Doesn’t offer any photo clean-up or red-eye reduction tools. But then, that’s not what Photobucket does, now does it?

Send any image directly to anyone on your DROID Contacts list via SMS or email with one gesture!

At some point, every digital photographer struggles with the basics: How do I organize, store, and share my digital photos? Services like Photobucket fill this need perfectly, and now DROID owners can take the service on the road.

Whether you’re new to the service or an old hand, setting up an account is a snap. When you take photos with your phone, you’ll find a new option to upload the image directly to your Photobucket account. Another click and you’ve posted the image to Facebook (and several other social media outlets).

Searching and viewing your stored images is just as easy, and making new folders and collections is straight-forward to say the least. The coolest feature? You can choose to send any image directly to anyone on your DROID Contacts list via SMS or email. Plus, the app auto-rotates your images when you choose to view photos in landscape/full-screen mode.

A new update now enables video storage and sharing to boot, along with the ability to upload or share multiple images all in one go.

Whether you’ve had a Photobucket account for years, or are seeking a new way to store, share, and organize your snaps, this is one app that will find a welcome home on your smart phone.
