Say you’ve just returned from a weekend trip in Vegas. You and all your raging friends took many, many pictures — some of them are already Facebook, others on Instagram and the rest that no one else should see are saved in separate phone galleries.
Seattle startup WideAngle is bringing all those images in one place. The free iPad app lets users gather and see photos from Facebook, Instagram, Photostream and text messages. WideAngle allows you to view images based on location, date, people, resolution and even a specific group of friends.
Essentially, it’s an aggregator app for all your other photo apps. While it’s only on the iPad for now, WideAngle is coming soon to iPhone and Android. Photo gathering from Twitter and Tumblr will also be added soon.
WideAngle is actually an offshoot from Intersect.com and is funded by a group of angel investors, led by Dean Allen, CEO of McKinstry and Denny Hill Capital. There are seven employees working at the office inside the McKinstry Innovation Center.
To make money, the company plans on offering a series of in-app upgrade options to enhance users’ existing social media and photo viewing experience.
