SplashBlog for Palm updated with support for shared blogs
SplashData, Inc. has released a update to its SplashBlog photo-blogging solution for Palm Powered smartphones (read our review). The key new features include the ability for multiple users to post photos to the same blog, and a streamlined approach to subscribing to other user's SplashBlogs, enabling them to automatically download all new photos posted to the blogs to which they are subscribed to their own Palm Powered device.

The new group blogging and updated subscription features make it easier for groups of families, friends, or colleagues to have access to the latest pictures taken by the group's members. A family of Treo 650 users, for instance, can all take pictures with their on-device cameras, input captions for the images, and wirelessly post them to a shared photo-blog for everyone to enjoy. Those same users can also "subscribe" to their friends' photo-blogs, and anytime they perform a wireless synchronization, all new pictures added to their subscribed blogs will be automatically downloaded into their device's photo library.

SplashData will provide free copies of SplashBlog to all attendees of the PalmSource Mobile Summit & Developer Conference 2005, along with access privileges to post photos to a group photo-blog developed specifically for the conference. Throughout the event, attendees will be able to post the photos they have taken to the PalmSource photo-blog.

An additional new service offered by SplashData is on the SplashBlog home page. The SplashBlog.com site is now a portal that will dynamically display recently posted photos by SplashBlog users, along with links to top-visited SplashBlogs. As users create SplashBlog accounts, they can opt-in or opt-out to have their images and photo-blogs featured on the SplashBlog.com home page.

"Our goal is to establish SplashBlog as the de facto standard for mobile photo blogging by making it as quick and easy as possible for users to capture and instantly share pictures with family and friends living in places all over the world," said John Chaffee, president of SplashData. "We're delighted to see SplashBlog becoming a great new way for families and friends to stay in touch, as well as realtors displaying hot new properties for sale, and even businesses
