Photovine leaves closed beta, update adds open signups


Google’s Slide group has taken its Photovine social photo sharing service out of invite-only closed beta and released an update to the Photovine app for the iPhone and iPod touch allowing anybody to sign up for the service from directly within the app. Initially debuted on the App Store last month, Photovine is a photo sharing service based on themes, referred to as “photovines”—users post their photos around single, shared captions, with other users contributing photos onto the same vines or starting their own vines. Photos are automatically shared with other Photovine users and can also be posted to Facebook and Twitter from within the application. Photovine requires iOS 4.2 and is available from the App Store as a free download. [via TechCrunch]
