Pool Party: Google’s Photo Sharing App

Facebook can’t be too pleased with Google right now. In addition to releasing a Facebook competitor called Google+, the company has also beaten Facebook to the mobile photo sharing space with a new app called Pool Party. Like Google+, the app is currently invite-only, but if you can score an invite it’s a free download for both iOS and Android. The app is based around collaborative group albums called “pools” that allow you to share pictures with friends and family in real-time.

The app is being developed by Slide, the company founded by PayPal-founder Max Levchin and acquired by Google last year. If you can’t wait to try it, you can request an invite through the website.
