Picplz 2.0 Overhauls UI, Adds Features

Photo sharing service picplz has updated their Android app to 2.0, giving it a complete user interface overhaul and several new features.

The most obvious update is to the look and feel of the app, bringing it in line with the somewhat “standard” UI of apps like the official Twitter and Facebook apps. Other new features include:

  • Native camera support. Picplz now takes advantage of all the features of your phone’s camera, such as zoom, flash, white balance, focus modes, and exposure.
  • A new Activity Feed, to easily follow what’s happening in your network.
  • A Gallery option, to quickly post photos you’ve already taken.
  • The ability to disable the location sharing option is now available in Settings.

Picplz is available in the Android Market for free, and requires Android 2.1 or higher. A few screenshots of the new version are available after the break.

Update: It looks like there’s an issue with the new version in how it handles notifications. Hopefully, that’s something picplz will address quickly.

Update 2: Version 2.01 is now out, promising to fix the issue with notifications.

    I liked the app, and I LOVED its integration with DropBox, making the process of getting photos off my phone a snap.

    But what I don’t like is that my photos automatically get put on picplz’s site for the whole world to see. And despite looking around, I haven’t seen a way to change that behavior. Is it possible?
