Western Digital has released a free photo viewer application, the WD Photos, for use with their My Book World Edition and WD ShareSpace network drives.
With WD Photos, users of the iPod or iPhone can access photos in those big drives from anywhere via their network. The company said the app’s powerful search tools, thumbnail previews and viewing options make it easy to find that special picture to show a friend at a coffee shop or remember a special moment.
Users can view up to 250,000 pictures on their iPhone or iPod touch by simply copying their pictures into the “Shared Pictures” folder on their My Book World Edition network drive. An application that runs directly on these WD network drives automatically creates optimized versions of users’ photos ahead of time, enabling fast viewing on an iPhone or iPod touch without having to wait for the photos to load.
