Whatsapp Pinterest

Using the Internet to share images on your phone with friends sitting right next to you can become a needlessly slow process when the Internet connection is a slow one. The image sharing can be made much faster if you are both connected to the same network. Here to help you with this is a phone app called Tapestry.

    I tried the app with some friends, and since we are on 4G/LTE, it works pretty smoothly and quickly. It doesn't require you to only use over WiFi. One little tidbit we found was that you can download the images directly during a "show-and-tell" session by doing a "downward swipe" on your screen on an image that you like. No more "Hey Charlie, email me those pictures later", which inevitably never happens!
