Turn your selfies into GIFs with new Path app called Kong

Path may not be the most popular micro-blogging or messaging app out there, but it does have a loyal userbase who prefer to have a more "intimate" (and by that we mean small) network. Now they're branching out into another market, hopefully capturing the ones who like taking selfies (which may be more than half of mobile users nowadays) and the ones who love making their own GIFs to send their friends. Are you ready to welcome Kong to your social network?

ScreenPop lets you share pics to locked screens

You've had the ability to open your camera from your locked screen and take pictures, but when you need to send the photos to a friend, you still need to unlock your device, open an app before you can send it to your friend. But a new app will now allow you to send photos even when your screen is locked and even if your friend's phone is locked as well.

Microsoft Xim 1.3 share your photos onto the bigscreen

Picture sharing is a great way to communicate with your friends and family and is essentially the core of most social media today. Microsoft Xim is an app that lets you share your photos with friends and family through their own phone. Usually when you have a photo you’d like to share, your friends would gather around you to see. Now you don’t have to worry about the overcrowding, Xim hosts the pictures onto your friends’ phone and lets you browse through the pictures together. Today Xim has come out with a new update that lets you share photos from your phone to the big screen.

SnapJet prints photos directly from your smartphone

While browsing through your photos on your smartphone from your vacation or a night out with friends is always nice (and at times, entertaining), there are moments when you'd really love to have printed versions of your favorite ones. A new Kickstarter project aims to bring that capability with the SnapJet device, and you don't even need any wires or apps to do so. It just makes use of good old analog instant film and fiber optic technology.

Prynt soon to print (and animate) your smartphone photos

It's a little bit ironic (and still totally understandable) that the more digital we become, the more we hearken to old ways of doing things, like printing digital pictures. There has been a keen interest lately in having pictures taken with your smartphone actually printed out and stuck on your corkboard or diary or wallet. A new phone case will soon be able to do just that and even give you an added bonus of seeing said photo have a few seconds of animation through an accompanying app.

Google tipped to spin Google+ Photos into its own service

Google might soon be fiddling with its photo gallery, but this time in ways that go beyond just a corner to stow and share pictures on Google+. According to insider sources, the search giant is planning to yank its Photos service out of Google+ and offer it as a separate and independent service for hosting and sharing everything from cats to selfies.

Selfies is a new social hub made just for selfies

If you've already had too much of the selfie generation, wait until Automattic gets its experimental social network out of the lab. The company, more popular for creations such as the WordPress blogging platform and the Gravatar avatar service, has very silently launched a new social network called Seflies that is focused on one thing and one thing alone: sharing selfies.

Cooliris puts all your photos in your hands

With a plethora of social networking sites, you're bound to have hundreds of photos scattered all over. And while there are numerous gallery apps available on Android, none probably gathers all, and we mean all, of them in a single place like Cooliris.
