If you’re like me, you’ll be carrying around a phone which contains literally hundreds of photos stored in some random gallery or other, in no particular order and with no way of easily locating or displaying them to friends or strangers. It’s weird how much effort we put into recording special moments, and then how little time we spend making them easy to access afterwards.
Well that’s clearly what the developers of Million Moments, a freeware Android and iPhone photo album maker, thought too. The software, developed by the Sony Digital Network Applications team, takes your random pile of images and instantly converts them into a chronological and taggable photo album.
What makes it extra special, apart from the instant ‘do nothing’ appeal, is the fact that you can also quickly and easily tag images and so make it trivially simple to retrieve your favorite shots relating to people, places or occasions. We’ve come across great Sony photo organizing software before (they do a nice organizer for their Alpha range of DSLRs) but this is the first time we’ve seen something that runs on the phone itself.
The import wizard takes seconds to grab your images, after which you can assign labels, browse the lovely magazine styled layout and generally enjoy your photos in a much better setting than a stark gallery option.
Once you’ve gathered a collection by labeling the photos, they’re turned into a mini album, which makes a great way to store photos by event and/or person. Definitely a keeper and something that should be on your phone if you’re a keen phone-cammer (is that a word?)
