Your App.net account allows you to do a lot more than send and receive Broadcasts. Your account gives you access to a network of great social apps, from microblogging and private messaging to check-ins and photo-sharing.
Sunlit is a completely fresh take on a photo-sharing app, letting you collect photos into stories — rich, detailed albums that you collaborate on with friends. Built by @manton and @cheesemaker, Sunlit is like nothing we’ve seen before (in the best way).
For too long, there was no easy way to collaborate on photo albums via mobile with friends and family of a trip you took, a wedding, a party…any shared experience. Sunlit, for iOS, is your answer, and it makes the process simple, beautiful, and intuitive.
Sunlit is free to use (a $4.99 in-app purchase unlocks unlimited stories), and you can download it now in the app store.
You can take photos, import photos from your camera or Dropbox, add filters, tag your location, include descriptions, and even publish to a web page with a single tap. Then, you can invite friends via private message to participate and add their own photos to the story. You’re then left with a beautiful, living document.
Sunlit is built on top of App.net’s infrastructure — you need an App.net account to use it — and is a shining example of what can be done. Your photos are saved securely in your App.net file storage, which means you can access them in other apps like Favd, if you wish to share them with your followers. If you’ve been using Ohai for private journaling and check-ins, you can import check-in location and text into a Sunlit story. Bottom line: your photos will always remain accessible and in your control.
“You have that feeling when hanging out with friends — everyone snapping pictures of their surroundings, of people, events, food, anything — that photo sharing should be better,” writes @manton about why he wanted to create Sunlit. ”That years later, you should be able to go back to that time, to see the best photos collected together from several people. And not just photos, but maps of where you were, and text to describe its significance.”
