[prMac.com] Zwijndrecht, Belgium - Galarina today is pleased to announce the release of WiiPhoto 1.1, an update to the iPhone app that turns a widescreen TV into a huge digital photo frame. In the same way as the new Apple TV, a Nintendo Wii console attached to a TV functions as a hub to wirelessly stream photos from a variety of sources to the TV. Once the initial connection is established, WiiPhoto acts as a versatile remote control. With just a few taps, photos from the following photo sources can be displayed on the TV:
* Any photo that's available in the Photos app of your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad
* Flickr account photos
* The most interesting Flickr photos of the day
* Flickr photos taken nearby your current location
* Photos from the most popular locations on Flickr
* All your Facebook photos
* Photos from your Facebook friends
* Photos from any folder on your Mac
* Photos from your iPhoto library (version '08, '09 and '11 are supported)
* All your SmugMug photos
"In many homes, the TV is the biggest available display, but it's rarely used to display photos on. Being a passionate amateur photographer myself, I want to offer families an easy way to turn their TV into a digital photo frame" said Chris Cornelis, founder and CEO of Zwijndrecht, Belgium based Galarina. "With over 80 million consoles sold worldwide, the Wii turned out to be the ideal companion for that. With WiiPhoto, families can now watch vacation photos comfortably from the couch. They can also discover Facebook albums of friends and the versatile possibilities of Flickr."
* A Wii console connected to the internet and the free Wii Internet Channel installed on the Wii console
* An iPhone, iPod touch or iPad connected to the internet using the same WiFi network as the Wii console
* Viewing photos located in a Mac folder requires Mac OS 10.5 or higher
* Viewing iPhoto photos requires iPhoto '08 or higher
