Features & Sharing
The Photo-Share Frame, free app from Brookstone that supports both Android and iOS. It’s easy as the software guides you through the setup process.
After you set up complete, the application is very easy to use. Just select the frame you want and select photos you want to transfer to the frame. All the pictures which you selected will show up, and then press the “send” button, which is finished. The app allows you to send up to 50 pictures at a time. This digital picture frame supports sending pictures via email or from your linked Facebook account.
One thing that I don’t like and annoy is every photo you send, there will be a sound bell every time. So, if you want to send 50 pictures at once, I suggest setting up to turn off this feature before you start sending by going to the settings menu of the picture frame.
All photos you send to the Brookstone PhotoShare will show up and loop respectively.
Another amazing feature of the Brookstone PhotoShare, that’s family or your friends can send memory pictures to your frame if you give permission to your friend’s access to the frame id. Easy and great way to keep the memories alive.
When it comes to performance for receiving photos, the Brookstone PhotoShare does relatively fast and can display images instantly.
Besides sending the photos, the Brookstone PhotoShare allows you to support video and music. You can send videos of your pets and also listen to music you like.
Auto-dim is another feature I love. The ambient light sensor will automatically adjust the brightness. The images will still be lively with brilliant light whether day or night.
You can use this digital picture frame like clock and also a calendar. It displays the date and time at the bottom of the screen. Besides, you can also use them as a clock alarm.
