Microsoft has finally launched the iPhone version of its previously announced Xim app, which offers users a way to quickly share photos with others.
The app was released for the Windows Phone and Android platforms a couple of weeks ago but now it's available for iPhone users. Here's a quick look at the app, which comes from the Microsoft Research division:
Stop huddling around one small screen – xim instead so everyone can see the images on their own device
Xims swipe and zoom together, so everyone stays in sync automatically – it's fun too
Only one person needs to have Xim installed in order for everyone to participate
Invite people from your phone's contact list, via email or via phone number
Choose photos from your camera roll, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, or OneDrive; mix and match easily from any of these sources
When your friend gets the Xim app the fun really starts – they can add photos or people to the Xim and easily extend the conversation
Xims only stick around for a little while so you can enjoy the moment with no storage or organization overhead
Long press on a photo you like for additional options such as save photo*
Xim is supported on many devices and web browsers, with more coming soon
While Xims expire after a little while, Ximmers can choose to save ximmed photos or take a screenshot at any time.
What do you think of Xim now that it's finally available for the iPhone?
