Creating a Peephole into the Twitterverse

in Social Networking (E)

[prMac.com] Fayetteville, Arkansas - Peephole, a groundbreaking new iPhone application from IFWORLD, Inc., gives Twitter users the ability to browse the expanding online photo gallery created with the popular microblogging service. Released August 12, 2009, in the iPhone App Store, Peephole loads up to 100 thumbnails at a time from popular Twitter photo sharing services Twitpic, yfrog and Twitgoo.

"We came up with the idea during the Iranian elections," said Scott Mills, Peephole developer and IFWORLD co-founder. "There were so many tweets coming out of Iran with newsworthy images that people wanted to see. Unfortunately, viewing images on your iPhone at that time took 2-3 clicks per tweet."

Peephole provides several options for browsing images. Users may choose to view images attached to trending topics as well as images in the public timeline. They can also display images from nearby users and friends. The application allows people to search for images by keyword and utilizes Twitter's own saved search feature to provide easy access to regularly used search terms.

Peephole features full-screen viewing of individual images. Additionally, it can display a series of images in slideshow mode for easy viewing of a large photo set.

Minimum Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod Touch 3.0 or later

Pricing and Availability:
Priced at $1.99 (USD) on the iTunes App Store, Peephole 1.0 is available for both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
