You go to a party, you take some photos with your smartphone, your friends do too. But how do you get the pictures to the people? Sharing photos from events you enjoyed with friends has been a problem that technology companies such as Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo, and more have been attacking for a decade or so. With its Moments app, Facebook takes a lot of pain out of the process. Moments finds photos in your phone from events based on time taken and people present and lets you easily, privately share photo sets and create attractive slideshow videos, complete with titles and musical soundtracks. Moments is available for Android and iOS. After signing in and allowing access to one’s photos, the app gathers groups of photos from events and makes suggestions about people who might like to see the pictures. It connects with all your social media pages from Facebook to Instagram, among others. Simple to use, yet more powerful than it appears, the Moments app makes finding, sharing, and exchanging photos with specific people a breeze.
