App Review: Picfree by Pinger, Inc.

picfree1 150x150 App Review: Picfree by Pinger, Inc.From the makers of the ever popular Textfree Unlimited, we now have Picfree.  Much like Textfree, Picfree is aimed at allowing you to send picture messages for free.  You can send pictures taken with your iPhone camera or anything in your Photo app to another mobile device or to an email address.  When sending a picture to someone who cannot receive picture messages, you can opt to send them a text message with a link to the picture in it.  So, for instance, when you are sending a picture message to another iPhone, you would check the box to send the message as a text with an embedded link to the picture.  The person receiving the message could then tap on the link and open the picture in their Safari app. Keep in mind that if you decide to send the text with a link to the picture, that it will still count as a text for the person receiving the picture.  Unfortunately, it is not free for them.

To send a picture message, you must first take the picture.  The app will then give you a preview of the pic and ask if you want to use it or retake it.  If you choose to use it, you move onto the next step, identifying the recipient.  You can type in a name for someone in your contact list to find their email or phone number quickly.  You can also just type the phone number in.  Next, you can add a short text message to go with it.  Then, tap send and your message is off.

I tried sending a picture message both to an email address and to an iPhone.  Sending the picture to the iPhone worked very well.  The text came in quickly and with a single tap on the message, I was able to pull up the picture.  I had to pinch the picture to shrink it to fit the screen, but it was not a big deal.  Sending the picture message to an email address worked as well, but I was not quite as happy with the result.  The email that I received contained the full picture, which was great, but it was too big to view the whole thing on the screen.  I would have preferred that the app shrink the picture slightly so that it would be easily viewed in an email.  Overall, not a bad way to send pictures for free.

Picfree is $5.99 in the iTunes App Store.
