Shutterfly, an online personal publishing service, has introduced Shutterfly for iPhone, a free photo-sharing iPhone application that enables customers to upload, view and share their Shutterfly photos while on the go. The application, also compatible with the iPod Touch, is available at the Apple App Store.

Shutterfly for iPhone allows customers mobile access to their photos. After downloading the software, customers sign in and view their albums on their iPhone or iPod Touch devices. Photos taken on the iPhone can be uploaded to a customer’s Shutterfly account and stored for free, at full resolution. Additionally, users can create a new Shutterfly account directly from a mobile device.

“Our goal is to give our customers access to their most treasured images so they can share their memories wherever they are,” says Peter Elarde, chief marketing officer at Shutterfly, No. 76 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide. “With our free photo-sharing iPhone app, we are simplifying the mobile photo experience.”

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 sites for friends and family to see. The system automatically uploads photos, in the background, permitting a 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.
