Albumatic first launched earlier this year to promising reviews, but has since gone through some major changes to address flaws in the app. The new app is a redesign of the entire sharing and collaborative experience with the new iOS7* platform in mind.
Albumatic’s founder, Adam Ludwin, has to this say about their decision to remake the app:
You realize that creating value and something that people want to use is just an infinitely hard task. I’d have to say, being an entrepreneur is a very humbling experience, and being a VC is about constantly having people feed your ego.
For Alblumatic 2.0, the app has completely removed the location-specific feature that allows users to join albums only based on location. The new Alblumatic lets album creators add practically anyone to the collaborative process, while giving more controls for who can view the album as a follower. Alblumatic 2.0 also added some social sharing options so if you want to send your photo or album off to Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, it’s an easy tap of the share button. All users must upgrade to the new app to get the new sharing/joining options.
*iOS7 also comes with similar sharing/collaborative options for photos in iCloud Photostream that’s worth checking out.
