Wink is a new way to share photos with friends nearby

There are plenty of options for those of you who want to share photos, like Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google+, 400px, and the list goes on. But, Wink wants to try jumping in that game anyway, and it thinks it has the right hook: making it easier to share photos specifically with friends who are nearby...

Bluetooth file transfer called. Why do the editors and rest of the iPhone generation act like it never existed? If you mention it and all mention it and complain maybe Apple with implement it in its seventh iteration.
You dont need an app, you need bluetooth file transfer.

Why does every geek think that existing technologies are the answer even though most people don't use them? The reason the app is needed isn't because Apple doesn't have Bluetooth file transfer, it's because most people don't know or care that the option exists. Apps get marketing, and apps get users. Features like Bluetooth file transfer get buried, and only used by tech savvy people and apps that want to make it easier for the luddites.

with the iphone you can click the share button and choose email, it takes seconds.
probably easier than asking your friends to install this app...
