Well, that took a while.
Ever since the iPhone appeared, it's been a pain to view your photo and video galleries on MobileMe from your iPhone or iPod touch. Sure, you could use Safari, but it was a clunky and slow process. With Apple connecting just about everything to everything else these days, not being able to easily view MobileMe galleries from an iPhone seemed like a pretty big omission.
Now, that problem has been solved. Apple has just released a free app for MobileMe users called, appropriately enough, MobileMe Gallery [iTunes link].
Among the features of MobileMe Gallery:
- View your entire gallery including password protected and hidden albums
- Flick through photos, and pinch and zoom
- Get a landscape view by rotating the phone
- View friends galleries
- View photos you've already accessed when you are offline
- Send a gallery link to friends directly from the iPhone
Apple, what took you so long? This is a nice little app. Go get it.
