This policy goes to both MyAlbum for Facebook (“The app”) editions – free and paid;
1. The app has no server side and is not saving any user personal data nor login credentials.
2. The app Login process to Facebook is done via Facebook’s official SDK.
3. There is no middle-man/middle-server between the app and Facebook’s servers (assuming Facebook is not using any in it’s official SDK).
4. Photos downloaded from the app will be saved on the device sdcard and there alone.
Finished developing the MyAlbum for Facebook Pro version and it’s now live and kicking at the Google Play store.
Two differences between the Pro and Free version:
1. The Pro version has no ads in it
2. Using the pro version, the ability to tag your friends in the photos you upload is enabled.
So if you are interested in tagging your photos and/or removing the ads and/or just want to support my work, go ahead and grab the Pro (You’ll like it :))
Love to hear some comments about the tagging feature. The bad ones too… (although I hope there are none :))
To tell the truth, when I first wrote MyAlbum for Facebook I did it for myself. I needed a way to Upload/Download blocks of photos to and from Facebook and the official Facebook app just wasn’t enough. It was also the time when I first started developing for the Android platform, so one thing lead to another and MyAlbum was born.
By now I realize I wasnt the only one with these needs. As for the time I am writing this post, MyAlbum was downloaded 146,804 times and collected 2106 Market reviews with an average score of 4.4 stars (out of 5). Number one app in the Android market for Uploading/Downloading Facebook photos.
And here are some statistics on how users use the app in 2012:
1. Users uploaded and shared 727,078 photos.
2. The 727,078 photos shared awarded of an average of 30 feedback each (comments and likes per photo).
3. Each day there are an average of 1,100 comments and 7,700 likes for photos shared by MyAlbum.
4. Users has generated a total of 2,863,336 API calls to Facebook servers.
5. Each day, an average of 1080 new users install MyAlbum on their Android device.
Looks nice ah ?? 🙂
It’s nice to know the app helps so many users in their daily social sharing activities ! As always, you are welcome to mail me with any suggestions, comments and ideas.
Have a great sharing.
After developing all of my apps under my own name at the Android Market, as I changed my working status, from now on I’ll be working under the brand name called Sourcejam.
Sourcejam can be found on Sourcejam.com (of curse).
The reason for the change is that from now on I will be working on some private apps I have always wanted to develop and I’ll need some help doing it. If it’s servers hosting, IT, Design, etc.. So i figured, why not just get a nice brand name that will be the roof for all of mine and my partners projects? And this is how Sourcejam was born.
The Sourcejam site is still under development but Sourcejam’s first project is up and published on the Android Market. It’s called – StreamLife. StreamLife is a social aggregator for Android that combines number of social streams into one. Facebook, Twitter and the phone call log (for now.. soon more sources will be added). Go ahead and visit the app page on the market to get the full picture, here.
I am very excited about this app. It took us a few months to get it up and running and we still have some work to do to get it really fantastic. From all of the apps I have developed, this is the biggest one yet. On the StreamLife project I am working with a designer, a good friend of mine, Boaz Sides. Everything in StreamLife was designed by him, from the smallest pixel to the screens as a whole. You can check him out on his Facebook page (this site is under construction right now.. )
My Latest app was release to the market today. With MyAlbum you can download your Facebook albums to your Android device in seconds. It is based on the Facebook album sync app engine (This time the name is not containing the word Facebook and hopefully will not get banned).
Added to the engine is the ability to batch upload pictures to Facebook. As the official Facebook app lets you upload one picture at a time, with MyAlbum you can upload as many as you want in a single easy upload procedure. Just open your image gallery and choose the pictures you want to upload, press share and choose MyAlbum app.
Downloading albums is the same as it was in Facebook album sync. Just choose the albums you want to download and get them !
All features are open (even downloading tagged pictures of you). Free app and no ads. Responses and feedback are always welcomed, email me or leave a comment.
