PhotoRocket, the Radically Simple Photo Sharing App, Now Available on Mac App Store

Ideal Solution for Busy People Who Want to Share More Photos More Often; No Email Attachments or Upload Buttons for Photo Sharers; No Registration Required for Recipients to View or Download Full Resolution Photos

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - PhotoRocket announced today that its free photo sharing desktop app for Mac is available on the Mac App Store. PhotoRocket, which recently announced the availability of its free photo sharing service and downloadable apps for Windows, Mac and iPhone, enables instant and simultaneous photo sharing to friends and family, social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and popular photo sharing destinations like Flickr and Shutterfly.

PhotoRocket makes it simple to share photos from many locations on the Mac including iPhoto, attachments in Mac Mail, Photo Booth, Finder, the Desktop, and browsers. Native Mac apps currently require that users go through one process to share photos via email and a separate process to post to a more limited number of individual social sites. 

"Just drag and drop your photos onto the PhotoRocket icon in your Dock or ctrl-click on any photo to launch our sharing app. This means people can spontaneously share from any program or location in seconds," said Scott Lipksy, PhotoRocket founder and Executive Chairman.

PhotoRocket brings simplicity to recipients of photos, as well, because there is no registration required to view or download photos. Friends and family get conveniently notified by email that photos are ready for viewing without having bulky attachments to clutter their inbox.

Recipients can immediately re-share photos to their own friends and favorite sites, all within seconds after confirming their email. They do not need to download a PhotoRocket app to re-share.

PhotoRocket also eliminates scattered web links and file attachments by consolidating images into a personal viewing experience that includes all the photos shared or received from anyone else who uses PhotoRocket. Not only are photos conveniently archived by sender and date, but PhotoRocket makes it simple to view or download full resolution images at any time, from virtually any location.
