“Since launching Pholium, we’ve been very pleased with the amount of interest and feedback we’ve received,” said Robert E. W. Sinclair, co-founder of 58 North. “We found that users want to give more books to more people, so we’ve worked hard to find a way to eliminate the cost barrier. Thanks to iCloud, users can not only include an unlimited amount of photos in their digital creations, but also share them with as many people as they wish at no additional cost. We will continue to make improvements to Pholium to provide the best digital photo viewing and sharing experience to our users.”
Launched in April 2012, Pholium elevates the way iPad users interact with images by enabling the creation of high-quality, customizable digital photo books that can easily be given to others. The app is designed to provide a rich and immersive experience that goes beyond today’s online photo sharing and point-click-print photo books.
Using existing pictures from their photo app on iPad or those stored in iCloud, users can effortlessly select and place photos in a custom layout, creating a personal story from cover to cover. Pholium users can fine-tune images and make adjustments within the app, including size, color, contrast, brightness and finish of their photos. Additional features allow users to determine how images are laid out on each page, customize the cover, write an introduction and include captions throughout the book to tell a complete story.
