Send Unlimited Photo Attachments With Instamail Photo [iOS Tips]

Send Unlimited Photo Attachments With Instamail Photo [iOS Tips]

Ever since iOS 4 (I think – thanks, Shane!) came out, you’ve been able to send more than one photo attachment per email message, up to a maximum of five. What happens when you need to send more than five photos in one email, though?

That’s where Instamail Photos comes in. It’s on sale right now for $0.99 in the App Store and works pretty darn well.

Download Instamail Photos and launch it with a tap on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, as this is a universal app and will work on all your iOS 6 devices. If you’re still running iOS 5, you may still be able to use it, though you’ll have to activate location service first, or you won’t be able to access the photo album.

On iOS 6, however, tap on the brushed aluminum button in the center of the screen, then allow the app to access your Photo gallery. Select the photo album or individual photos you want to send via email by tapping them all in the grid, similar to the iOS 6 way of doing it, except you can select as many as you want, including all of them.

Tap the Done button in the upper right, then Instamail Photo will bring up a standard email template. Type in the recipient or recipients’ email address, fill in a subject, and hit Send. It’s that easy.

The photos will get to your recipient as fast as email allows, and there seems to be no compression of images, at least when sending from my iPhone 5 to my own email address.

Let me know what you think when you try it out in the comments below, or (sorry, you need Javascript to see this e-mail address).

    Rob, for the record, iOS has been able to send a maximum of 5 photo attachments at once since at least iOS 4, and possibly iOS 3, but I cannot verify the later.
