The app, which looks something like Instagram, includes a photo editor with effects, cropping and other photo editing features. It also allows users to see their friends' photos and the most popular pictures across the service. TwitPic has licensed its photo editing tech from Aviary.
TwitPic is a name known to many a Twitterer. Launched in 2008, the service quickly became one of the primary ways Twitterers shared photos on the information network. That all changed about a year ago when Twitter went full steam ahead with its own photo-sharing service.
Many thought the news spelled the end for TwitPic — and rightfully so, it’s only natural to assume that an official offering would eclipse one developed externally. By some accounts, TwitPic has fallen behind, but that doesn’t mean it’s game over for the seven-person, Charleston, South Carolina company just yet.
