Pressgram: A photo sharing alternative

Interviewing Pressgram developer John Saddington

Published via Pressgram

OK, OK, I realize I have fallen off the blog wagon. But I’m jumping back on — and it’s all because of Pressgram.

I was introduced to Georgia Tech grad, hacker and software engineer John Saddington a few months back. He was fed up with photo sharing sites where you didn’t get to retain ownership of your pictures. So, he decided to develop an iPhone application himself to remedy the issue. Saddington opted for a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to gain the capital needed.

Pressgram mimics Instagram but differs in philosophy – and allows the user to keep creative control. The best part — it uploads straight to a Word Press blog.

Before, I would blog from time to time at the end of my day. By that point, I would have already written 3 to 4 versions of the story I was working on for the day, tweeted, posted to Facebook and written a web story. It was hard to find the time and energy to then write a clever blog post. Pressgram will allow me to post from my iPhone directly to my blog. Some days I may decide to just post a picture with a caption. Other days I’ll choose to write more. Bottom line: Pressgram will make my work flow more manageable — and will allow me to keep the blog instead of giving up.
