If you are like me one of the primary jobs for your external storage drive is to back up the hoards of digital pictures that you take along with digital videos. My mom has all our family pics crammed in photo albums, but today we all tend to have all the photos of special moments on external HDDs where they aren’t easy to view.
Western Digital has announced a new free photo viewing application for the iPad and the iPhone that works with its line of external storage products like the My Book World Edition, My Book Live, and WD ShareSpace called WD Photos. The app allows the user to access up to 285,000 of their favorite images that are placed in a shared folder.
Those images can be accessed using the app from anywhere that you have a web connection. That would mean that you could show off all those photos you have stored at home while you are at the office or around the world. The app has pinch and zoom functionality, horizontal split view for iPad, and the option to post photos from the app to Facebook. Images for the iPad are viewed in 1024 x 768 resolution.
