Radar helps users share what they're doing while they're doing it. iPhone pictures sent to Radar are immediately available to friends on any mobile phone on any network; through the desktop site; and through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
This ongoing stream of pictures and experiences shared in real time becomes an instant visual update, and the best mobile browsing and commenting around makes Radar as much about conversation as it is about picture sharing.
"The iPhone is an ideal platform for Radar, and allows us to follow through on the essential promise of the cameraphone to enable real-time sharing of experiences," said John Poisson (http://radar.net/people/fugu), founder and CEO of Tiny Pictures. "We've put everything we've learned about mobile browsing and commenting into this application, and our goal was to build nothing less than the best mobile photo sharing service for iPhone."
Features of the Radar application for iPhone include:
-- Upload iPhone pictures, either from the camera or from the photo library
-- Control who sees each post: mark any picture as 'friends only' or
'public', and allow or block individuals or groups on any post
-- Sync with Facebook to share pictures on Facebook profiles and newsfeeds
-- Sync with Twitter to instantly share public pictures as Twitter updates
