Who says Android phone users get to have all the fun uploading photos to Google+? You can do that with an iPhone, too, using any app that can send pics to Google‘s image organizer, Picasa.
For this how-to sent to us by Paul Molluzzo of Alpha Dad, let’s use an ad-supported app called Piconhand [iTunes link], available free on the App Store.
Once you have the app downloaded and installed, follow Paul’s quick tutorial (with some of my own tips inserted):
Find Location Services by tapping the Settings icon, then Location Services, and then scroll down to find Piconhand.
Or name it whatever you wish, perhaps a Circle name you'd like to give access to. This gives you control of who gets to see these pics in Google+.
Choose a pic from your library or take a new one. The app lets you edit pics if you choose that in Preferences.
After they're uploaded, go to Google+ and adjust the visibility of the album where you uploaded those photos, assigning that folder to the various circles you'd like to allow to see those pics.
This is a quick and easy way to send photos to Google+, and will suffice until Apple finally approves a Google+ app for iOS. But we won’t be holding our breath waiting for that.
Readers, have you discovered other iPhone Picasa uploaders or methods that you’d recommend?
