Nowadays, mobile devices are some important things in our lives. Therefore they are being used by an incredible high number of people. In the recent years, smartphones have been adopted by many and we can say that our lives have become easier and less boring. Also, the smartphone’s applications market has grown and now you can find all sort of apps with more or less usefulness and success. For many genres of smartphone applications, the success was granted by the social capability that they have provided.
So is the case with those applications which are meant to offer a socialization profile on a network where pictures can be shared. This kind of social networks let their users to group the photos based on different criteria, like events, places etc. One application for this kind of networks has been created for iOS and released a month ago. We are talking here about Epicons. The good news is that the new app is now available for Android devices, too. You can download it from Google Play Store and you can read a short review here.
Epiocons will amaze you with its simplicity. Its main scope is to let you upload pictures which you have taken with your Android device camera or which you already have saved in your phone’s memory.You will also be provided with all kind of useful settings regardin the visibility and organization of your albums. You can set who should view your pictrures and also how can they be organized. In each „episode” your photos will be displayed in chronological order. Also, you have the opportunity to view the photos on this network in a slide show and in full screen mode. Another great option in Epicons I consider being the possibility of importing pictures from Flickr and Picassa. You can even tag, rate and comment on these kind of images.
In order for you to have access at Epicons, you need to create an account. This can be done after you have downloaded this application.
Once you have logged in Epicons, you will notice that you are provided with a very simple menu. It contains only four options: My Photos, Episodes, Camera, More.
You need to use My Photos menu in order to access your pictures that you have uploaded on this network. Episodes menu will take you to the albums which have been uploaded by other users of this social network. Obviously, by using the Camera option, you can take a picture with your smartphone and upload it on Epicons. More menu takes you to the location in which your photos are stored in your smartphone. That’s needed when you want to upload a picture or an entire episode on this network.
After you have uploaded a picture, you will need to set sharing and views rights. You can choose between sharing one single picture or an entire album. You can also tag or comment on them. Notifications settings are also available.
