) accounts that can capture and post photos and videos to Posterous, but it’s designed to be something so much more.
PicPosterous makes live photo and video blogging from your iPhone instant and simple, and it rapidly speeds up the time it takes to get the content from your phone to the web.
The free app can used with or without a Posterous account, and is basically just a camera app for taking photo and videos. The beauty of PicPosterous is that those pics and vids are automatically published as you capture them.
The quick-click-to-web app is perfect for an almost real-time image and video rich photo blog, or an instant album of your travel photos. The process is plain and simple, click “Camera” (you can also add content from your library), take a snapshot or video, preview it, use it or retake, and then add it to a pre-existing album or create a new one. Creating a new album creates a new post on Posterous, just like a typical email update, but the Add to Album feature updates an already online post with your new content, and there’s no limitation on quantity.
I took the app for a test drive over the weekend and found its super cool factor — continually updating the same post with photos and videos as you take them. My personal test was a tourist for a day expedition around San Diego, and the end result is a fantastic visual chronicle of my entire day. The only downside I noticed is that users aren’t able to add descriptive text to their captures.
If you’re unfamiliar with Posterous, we like to call it the email-to-blog-to-everywhere platform that’s constantly evolving. In the past few months, Posterous has transitioned from baby blogging site to a platform used religiously by industry insiders and the livestreaming tech set. You can turn email lists into group blogs, automatically get Google Maps in your posts, import all your content from other platforms, as well as auto-post to a myriad of other services.
We think the PicPosterous iPhone app is the latest innovation that continues to make Posterous quite the harmonious alternative blogging utility.
