Upload photos to Panoramio straight from your iPhone!

Tens of millions of mobile users own a device with a good camera and GPS. We realize that a lot of these users may want to share photos of places with the rest of the world via Google Maps and Google Earth.
Today, we're taking a first step toward making that possible, which is why I'm happy to announce our new iPhone app. You can download it now from the App Store. Our team is working hard on an app for Android-powered devices, so stay tuned for that!
The philosophy behind the app is to keep it simple: sign in (only the first time), pick a photo from your device or take a new photo, and upload it straight to Panoramio. If available, the geoposition will be automatically set, and you can optionally add a title to the photo.
This is the first time Panoramio is releasing a mobile app, so we want to hear your comments. Please send feedback, feature requests and bugs to iphone@panoramio.com.
