There’s such a huge number of photo and video sharing apps we’ve covered at Cool Mom Tech like Snapseed, WeeWeb and Shutterfly, to name a few. These are great for simply sharing photos and broadcasting them to your networks, but when you have photos from shared public events, it would be kinda fun to have one place where you can see a compilation of people’s collective pictures and videos.
is an app for iPhone
that lets you broadcast your photos from any particular event. Using their own algorithms, it will scour social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+) for people who have also posted photos, videos, even tweets from the same event and compile them into one album.
While it’s somewhat similar to the Flock app
, instead of using data from your network of friends to compile albums of your kids’ birthday party, Moment.me goes much more public for events like conferences (imagine SXSW?), concerts, or the Super Bowl. You can also check the public timeline to see the albums that are trending.
For someone who rarely uses Facebook anymore, I do find it annoying that you can only log into the iPhone app using your Facebook credentials, but the website version does gives you access through Twitter and Google+. Still, I think it’s an interesting concept and one that could be fun if you 1) take a lot of photos and post them online, and 2) attend a lot of big events where lots of other people are. Kind of neat seeing the same event from so many perspectives. –Jeana
