iPhone App to post photo to forum

Post by mrag »

For one phpBB forum I participate in, I can upload a photo from my pc or I can use an IMG tag if the photo is posted on-line somewhere. In either case the workflow is take photo with phone, transfer to PC, resize image, upload photo to an independent web site and use a link on forum post OR upload from my PC to forum post. Is there an iOS app that might simplify the process? I've been toying with TinyPic.com which looks good (and supposedly has an app), just curious if anyone else has researched this topic. TIA

The attached photo was taken and uploaded from my phone. No app needed other than the camera and the built-in photo-editor. It took me more time to write down your name than to upload the photo...

I imagine iOS should have the same tools?

Here I am using the Dolphin browser to attach a photo. Your photo is fine on my pc but does not show here on Dolphin iPhone. I'm thinking phones really are for talking and not posting. Much appreciate you showing me, thanks

Well, I don't know much about iPhones or iOS. But AFAIK, if you have a descent browser on your phone (I'm using the default Chrome browser on my Nexus 5; almost 3 years old) uploading and showing photo's shouldn't be too hard. I would be very surprised if you can't do the same with an iPhone.

I don't really see what the issue is, I use my iPhone all the time and upload practically anything I want to within allowed limits. If you're looking for an iOS app you would be better off asking somewhere that deals with iOS apps or you could always request an extension.
