SplashBlog for Palm OS Photoblogging

SplashData has announced the launch of its new SplashBlog solution for the PalmOne Treo and other Palm Powered wireless devices. The app lets users capture pictures with their camera phones, and instantly publish photos to a “photo blog” for friends and family members to see.

The process of “blogging,” maintaining a personal journal on the Internet that is frequently updated, has been steadily growing in popularity. SplashBlog adds an entirely new element to blogging—instantly publishing a photo diary from a wireless device. Now anyone with a smartphone can snap photos of vacations, new babies, and other momentous occasions, and wirelessly publish those pictures to their personal photoblog for friends and family scattered throughout the world to enjoy.

SplashblogSplashBlog streamlines the process of mobile photo blogging, allowing users to capture an image and publish it to an online photoblog in as little as two clicks. SplashBlog includes everything users need to publish their photos online, including software for the smartphone and a free online photoblog account at splashblog.com. SplashBlog is also compatible with the TypePad blogging service and support is planned for similar services such as Blogger, Flickr and Zoto.

“Mobile photoblogging is a great way for smartphone users to keep in touch with friends and family while traveling or away from their desktop computer,” said John Chaffee, president of SplashData. “The combination of a camera-equipped smartphone and SplashBlog with its streamlined interface and instant photo publishing make for an outstanding mobile photo blogging solution.”

SplashBlog requires a handheld running Palm OS 4.0 or later with a wireless data connection. A built-in camera is recommended but not required. Handhelds without a camera can publish images from a VFS memory card (e.g., from a digital camera). Two-way synchronization is also supported, enabling images added via the Web site to be downloaded to the handheld. It is available for a limited time introductory offer of $19.95 (normally $29.95) [BUY]. The software purchase includes access to an online photo hosting account on splashblog.com. A 30-day full-functioning trial is also available for download.
