How to Share Photos Without Uploading Them Online

Sharing photos is becoming one of the most popular aspects of social media and the overall digital community. Within seconds after an image is posted online, it can become a viral hit that is shared with people around the world in virtually no time. However, not everyone wants to upload their photos online to share or view them. That’s where an app like TappIn comes in.

TappIn began as a private photo sharing solution. Creator Chris Hopen was looking for a way to privately, effectively, and securely share photos of his family with his in-laws. TappIn allows you to share pictures with whoever you choose without uploading those files anywhere online. With TappIn, you keep those photos on your device and grant people remote access to them.

So how do you share photos without uploading them online? It’s easy, and only takes 3 taps!

Tap 1: Open your TappIn mobile app.

HomePipe Rocks!

I’ve been around long enough to know a good technology from a bad one – or a solution that solves a problem no one has! As the proud new chief marketing officer of HomePipe, I assure you, this is a unique technology that really works. (Trust me, there are plenty out there that don’t!) HomePipe elegantly solves a problem that most of us have and the company participates in the one of the largest and fastest growing segments in the technology market – mobile. A powerful combination for anyone in my line of work!

As I mentioned, HomePipe is different. If you haven’t tried it, you should really check it out. It delivers a quick, secure way to access and share photos, videos, music and documents across a broad range of mobile devices anywhere, anytime. It saves us from hours uploading content to a cloud service or syncing and copying it from one place to another. You never have to worry about paying for storage that you don’t need since your files are saved in one place—the storage you already paid for on your computer.

And, HomePipe is easy—easy to install and even easier to use. I didn’t have to fill out a registration form and unclick from receiving volumes of promotional material. I just entered my email address and clicked “get started!” I immediately received an email with an activation link. I clicked the link and it literally took seconds to download! I couldn’t believe it.

Within minutes I was using my iPad to access and share online files—my son’s football pics and videos as well as my daughter’s artwork—with my relatives in Arizona, friends across the US and my colleagues here in Seattle. I didn’t spend hours organizing and uploading my stuff as HomePipe gave me access to all the files stored on my computer–even on my external drives. In the time it would have taken to just register for one of those cloud storage services, I was already using the HomePipe service. I even used HomePipe to stream music to my Android phone right from my iTunes library on my Mac back at the house. Now that’s cool!

HomePipe is everything I expected. During my research, I consistently saw comments from HomePipe subscribers raving about the service. One user credits HomePipe with a perfect marriage proposal! Now what cloud storage service can do that?

The future is bright for HomePipe and its passionate fan base. I am excited to be here. We’re busy enhancing the service to make it even better and there’s a new release coming in just a few weeks (hint, hint) – more on that later. This will be an exciting year!

If you don’t have HomePipe, download it free and try it. You’ll love it. If you have HomePipe and a story to share or just want to send me a comment, please email at doug@homepipe.net. I’d love to hear from you.

Rose Petals, Champagne, iPad and TappIn – She’ll say “Yes” to This Proposal

homepipeYou know that TappIn offers immediate, no hassle access to your digital files—music, video, audio and documents—anytime, anywhere. You know that it’s easy, convenient and a huge time saver. But did you know that TappIn can actually help you propose? It can!

Meet Todd of Spokane, Washington. Todd is a creative director and Web guru. He and his girlfriend, Marchand, had been dating nearly 2 ½ years when Todd decided it was time to pop the question.

The Holidays were approaching and it was the perfect time for Todd to set his plan into motion. He had secretly taken one of Marchand’s rings for the jeweler to size the engagement ring. He booked the Davenport Hotel for New Year’s festivities and the champagne was ordered. Todd even ordered two engraved champagne glasses with their names and the date to celebrate the occasion. After weeks of meticulous planning, Todd was ready.

Todd had everything planned. Marchand was busy getting dressed for an evening of dinner, dancing and celebrating. While she took her time preparing, Todd readied the room. He had the champagne chilling and the glasses set. He sprinkled rose petals on the bed, spelling out “Will U Marry Me.” He positioned the ring on the bed surrounded by rose petals. It was perfect.

Right before leaving for the evening’s festivities, Todd planned to propose to Marchand.

But as he readied the room and practiced his proposal over and over in his head, he grew more and more nervous. With each passing minute, his proposal became more and more jumbled. It just had to be perfect!

Remembering he had typed out his proposal on his home computer, Todd grabbed his Apple® iPadTM (as shown on the foot of the bed). With a few taps, he remotely accessed his proposal on his home computer using TappIn. On his iPad, Todd read the exact words he wanted to share with Marchand on this special night. Re-reading the proposal refreshed his thoughts and calmed his nerves. Todd was thoroughly prepared. He even positioned the iPad beneath the ring with the proposal file open—made possible by TappIn.

Todd’s plotting and planning paid off. She said “Yes.”He credits TappIn for his perfect proposal.

“Thank heaven for TappIn and its quick access,” says Todd. “Without TappIn, my marriage proposal could have been a TV blooper!”

Congratulations Todd and Marchand! Another TappIn success.

Todd, just a little advice about the wedding ceremony: You probably shouldn’t TappIn your vows during the ceremony. Someone may notice the iPad in your tux pocket!
