Shutterfly for iPhone [App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=309465525&mt=8), Free] recently appeared in the App Store, bringing streamlined on-the-go access to the popular photo sharing site.

- Access all your Shutterfly albums and pictures from your iPhone
- Show off and view your online Shutterfly pictures in a stunning full-screen slide show
- Easily add your iPhone pictures directly to your online Shutterfly account
- Instantly post your uploads to your Shutterfly Share personalized website for friends and family to see

According to Shutterfly's press release (http://ir.shutterfly.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=376060) regarding the launch, users can create new Shutterfly accounts directly from the iPhone application. The press release also highlights the ability of Shutterfly for iPhone to upload multiple photos as a queue in the background of the application.

Because Shutterfly's iPhone App automatically uploads photos to a registered Shutterfly account, it allows customers to instantly post photos to their personalized Shutterfly Share site for friends and family to see. Photo uploads happen automatically in the background, permitting the user to take and upload multiple photos at once. As with all accounts, Shutterfly offers free, unlimited storage, stores images at full resolution and does not delete images.

Apple..APPLE release a mobileme app or make the iphone's built in photo app connect to mobile me to retrieve albums.

Apple can be so laid back sometimes

I love this. I've been using Shutterfly for a couple of years now.

I assume that when they say "Photo uploads happen automatically in the background," they mean in the background of the app, while the app is still running. As opposed to running in the background while you check your email or surf in safari.

Having trouble figuring out if shutterfly allows users to download the full resolution images that you upload (iphone, or computer). It seems like it does not, but I can't find anything definitive, and I don't want to waste my time signing up for the service just to find out. Thanks.

You can download iPhoto photos from Shutterfly for free if you have a Shutterfly share site. The downloads are 1600x1200, which is the full resolution of an iPhone photo. You can post photos directly onto your share site from within the Shutterfly app, but you have to enable this in the settings mode. If you haven't tried a share site, it is a great way to share pics with a trusted group of friends and families. Better than email sharing of other sites, better than posting for the world to see on social network sites.

Thanks for the clarification, I was wondering the same thing as others were saying about being able to download pictures that are uploaded.

Installed this program and it works nicely. Too bad Apple will not implement this with their own twist like with mobile me

MobileMe has much bigger problems...

anyways, i might have to give this app a try but i am much more interested in using Google Picasa on a regular basis.

and yes to whoever asked above the app can only upload in the background while the app is running - OS 3.0 does allow true background processes.
