Adobe GroupPix is now available

I think we have all had this experience – you go to a party, everyone is taking pictures and maybe a few are shared on Facebook but what happened to the rest? A lot of us here at Adobe can really relate to that- and that’s why we introduced Adobe GroupPix, a new mobile app for iOS. When you and your friends use GroupPix on your iPhone, all the pictures that everyone takes are saved to one shared album. During the event you can add comments, ‘like’ your faves, and view the photos as they’re being snapped. After the event’s over, you can add more pictures and view them on your iPhones or computers. GroupPix means you’ll never miss another great shot! Check it out. Download GroupPix to your iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-grouppix/id591490672?mt=8
