This is a step in the right direction. The Yahoo! Photos application removed earlier this Fall from the TiVo application lineup was a pale reminder of just how far we have to go to enable simple sharing of personal media with family and friends. I was hoping to be able to share my Flickr library and am unlikely to sign up for yet another service.
What I would like to see is a standard set of APIs for sharing of photos and video across all the major services. It won’t happen as so much of the value prop is tied up in well frankly, tying your photos into a particular online service and their own monetized deals for printing, sharing etc. But my photos want to be free to enjoy wherever I want, on any screen I want.
