Google launches iPhone interface for Picasa


Google has launched a new interface for its Picasa photo sharing service, optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch. The interface lets users “quickly see all your albums that you’ve uploaded to Picasa Web. If you click on any of the albums, you can get a full view of your picture with comments from your friends.” Other features include a Slideshow view, a search mode that lets users search for photos in their albums or through community photos, and the ability to view your friends’ albums through favorites. To try out the new interface, visit from an iPhone or iPod touch.

I discovered this today when I was out and about having coffee.  This is sweet!  I think it is great that Google is showing so much iPhone / iPod Touch love!  Picassa is also the only Google app I’ve seen so far that actually looks and feels entirely like the iPod Touch interface despite it’s earlier efforts in it’s iPod loving homepage.  I think they ought to get the Picassa team of programmers to revise their other already existing efforts for the iPod platform.  :)

Another excellent development. Can’t wait to load up a batch of my pics tonight.

These are the kinds of subtle but meaningful improvements that will ensure the iPhone (and the iPod Touch) strengthen their foothold in the marketplace.
