There are no shortage of mobile applications that promise to slap a few filters on your photos before sending them off to Facebook or Twitter, but that hasn’t stopped Photobucket from jumping in the mix with their new Snapbucket app.
Available for both Android and iPhone, Snapbucket does distinguish itself from the other filter apps out there by allowing you to automatically save two copies of your photo (one with the effect, the other without) to your Photobucket account. Another twist: you can make your own custom filters (i.e. your own image effects) and save them on your phone for easy access.
In addition to sending your images to your Photobucket account, Snapbucket can also email them or upload them to Facebook and Twitter. Best of all: it’s free.
In the course of announcing the new app Photobucket also said they would offer their members “free, unlimited” photo storage. Sounds like a good deal, considering that their previous free account had some restrictions on the number of images you could store. As of now, the site’sterms of service are dated 2010, so it’s not clear yet what Photobucket’s new terms actually are, but it does appear they’re making the opening account more generous to accommodate an influx of images.
