Create Beautiful Photosets Right On Your iPhone With This App



There are a few problems with sharing a batch of photos on the internet. You could make a Facebook album and toss around a link, but Facebook is messy, and ugly, and no one likes it. Or you can upload 12 different photos to Instagram in one hour and piss off all your friends. Or you can make a photoset of great pictures, but most people don’t know how to do that.

Tumblr is ready to change all those problems by introducing their new app called Photoset. It let’s you take a group of pictures, organize them, add captions and dates, and then upload them to the internet as a photoset so you can share them all together with just one link.

As far as features go, there’s really not much there which is what makes the app so great. It’s kind of like making a Facebook album, only without the mess. Everything looks clean and the entire focus is on the actual photos, not likes or comments, just the pretty pictures you snap while your galavanting in the wild.

Photoset is free and it’s available for both iPhone and iPad.

    How is this different than Journals in iPhoto on iOS?

    If only one could use this for uploading to sites other than Tumblr/Photoset. But then, I may be missing the point.

    In any case, thanks for the tip.

    WARNING: Unlike Twitter, Facebook, or Apple’s Photostream, you cannot delete photos or photosets, and you have no control over who views them. Anything you post with this application will be available to anyone else on the internet. You will not be able to edit or remove your photos once they are uploaded.

    Once you upload your photos to, they are publicly available, despite Tumblr’s claims to the contrary (“We’ll keep the link private unless you share it.”). Anyone with the link can view the photos. The photos are not associated with your Tumblr blog, and you are never asked to log in to your Tumblr account. The link for the photos is short and non-random enough to be easily guessable/harvestable.

    There is no way to edit or delete the photos once they’ve been posted. If you like to control access to your blog and photos, those controls won’t apply at all to what you upload with this app. Your content is available to the entire internet, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Also, the markup surrounding the photos is full of proprietary Twitter and Facebook tags, so you are sharing information with Twitter and Facebook. Nowhere in the Terms and Conditions is this made clear.

    Don’t bother to click on the Photoset Support link. All that gets you is a page that advertises the app. There is no Help or Contact Us link – nothing.

    This app is a huge disappointment, especially coming from Tumblr. Many of us use Tumblr because we don’t appreciate the intrusiveness and sneakiness of Twitter and Facebook when it comes to privacy. Tumblr should know better.
