Photogram - share photos by email

I’ve got thousands of photos lingering on my iPhone. Mostly they’re there as reminders of quirky things, such as some crazy tiling I saw in the toilets of an Edinburgh art gallery or silly signs or posters that I spot in music venues, but sometimes I like to send a picture to someone. Usually, I toss it into an email and away it goes. An app was sent my way recently, though, that would let me send four photos in one go in a format that’s a bit more friendly than as an email attachment.

It’s called Photogram. You download it for free, set it up, and away you go. Select up to four photos, throw them into one of a healthy choice of backgrounds, add a message, and them send them on their merry way by email. Or FaceBook. Or Twitter. You can send the same ‘card’ to multiple recipients, and it remembers to whom you’ve sent a photogram previously.

The positives? It’s easy. It’s free. It’s a cute idea.

The negatives? Well, it isn’t eactly a negative, but it’s just not outstanding and I’m not sure how much I’d use it. Still, for nothing, you could do a whole lot worse.

Photogram, send photos for free.
