[prMac.com] Rennes, France - Comimos has announced the release of Pix'Air 1.0 for iOS, a new photo sharing application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Running Pix'Air transforms an iOS device into a powerful photo server. Because many users have lots of photos in their iOS device. And if, for personal watching, the iPhone or iPod touch screen is just fine, when sharing photos with family or friends, this screen is really too small. Pix'Air solves this issue elegantly by enabling the display of the photos on the computer's big screen using the most widely available application: a web browser.
Pix'Air always presents photos with the highest possible quality. The display is automatically adapted to the browser window size, so that photos always look good, even in full-screen mode. Various transitions - in 2D and 3D - are inserted between photos. These transitions are automatically adapted to match the current web browser's graphic capabilities. And on the iPhone and iPod touch, Pix'Air takes full advantage of the retina display.
Pix'Air is really flexible when it comes to navigating in a photo album. Most photo selection commands can be operated from the Pix'Air' User Interface or from the web browser, at the user's convenience. Controls include navigation to next / previous photo, as well as a sliding thumbnail bar allowing a quick navigation in the current photo album. Browser-based controls are done via the mouse, keyboard, or touch-based interface.
One of Pix'Air' unique feature is the synchronized photo album display on multiple screens. WIth this feature, a same photo album can be displayed on several devices at the same time, e.g. a computer and an iPad, with all devices presenting the same photos and transitions.
Pix'Air is using standard HTML5 and CSS3 for high-quality photo rendering and transition. This makes Pix'Air compatible with most modern web browsers like Safari, Firefox, Chrome or Opera.
