First look at Pixable Photofeed: One photo app to aggregate them all

photofeedWe’re not sure if you’ve heard, but photo apps are all the rage right now. Anyone with even a moderate penchant for photos has given Color, Instagram, or Hipstamatic a whirl at this point, and while they’re all entertaining (to varying degrees), they have a few things in common: Overlapping features, and a connection to a new mobile photo community that you find yourself keeping tabs on.

Pixable has something of a solution. The developer takes two extremely popular platforms – aggregators and photo apps – and combines them with its Photofeed app. It works by connecting to your Facebook account and pulling the popular photos of the day and week for you to peruse. It also offers up new profile pictures, and for those who want to venture outside their friends, a 24-hour look at the best of Flickr, as well as what’s trending on Instagram.

So what are you missing out on? Photofeed doesn’t have the flash many of its competitors do. It leans more toward an efficient way to browse Facebook photos: You won’t have to scroll through the day’s meaningless mobile uploads of food to find something worth looking at. Of course, it’s not like the app works on hard science, but it does take into account contacts you interact with most and those with photos you like, which will be sorted into your feed more often. After a few minutes playing around with the app, it seemed fairly reliable. Photos are arguably Facebook’s most used feature and, let’s face it, can be hit or miss depending on who’s behind an album. Trolling to find something worthwhile can be tedious and just plain depressing, and given Facebook’s popularity as a photo platform, Photofeed can help you wade through the mess and find the photos that matter.

You don’t have to have an iOS device or even a smartphone to get in on the fun. Pixable originally launched Photofeed as an application that integrates with your Facebook account and allows you to view popular photos and even create categories for its sorting purposes – such as “Just Ladies” or “Just Guys” as it suggests on its homepage. A nice, honest way to stalk the sex of  your choice.
