Eye-Fi for the iPhone? Why Not!

Eye-Fi for the iPhone? Why Not!

Eye-Fi Inc is developing a new iPhone application that will allow Eye-Fi card owners to send photos taken on an iPhone directly to their computer and the Web. The application will be previewed at Macworld in San Francisco, January 6-9, in booth #3315 in the North Hall.

The company explains that the new application will let users aggregate all of their photos — from both an iPhone and a digital camera — into organized folders on a computer and to one of 25 online photo sharing and social networking Web sites. iPhone users who own an Eye-Fi card can download the free application from Apple’s App Store upon release.

Using the Eye-Fi application, users can select which iPhone photos to upload and where to share them. As with the Eye-Fi Explore card, photos taken on an iPhone can be automatically tagged with information about where the picture was taken. Users can then view geotagged photos on a digital map and organize photos by location.
