In the digital age, many of us have a problem with regards to the organization of our data. Many of us use several cloud providers and may or may not have duplicate data on them. For me, pictures in particular are considered priceless data, since they cannot be replaced the way some other information can be. On top of the cloud services, there are also the photos stored on social media sites. I have not found a way to aggregate all of these photos into one place that has an easy way to share them with my family.

NeroKwik Application


Nero has a solution to this problem, with their new application for Android, NeroKwik. The NeroKwik application is designed to provide the user with one stop to view all of their photos on their device, Facebook, and even between several devices. It is set up in a way that allows you to intelligently add photos to what they refer to as tapestries for easy viewing and sharing with others. At the time of this article NeroKwik is only available in a free version for Android 4+, but Nero plans to support other devices, along with the release of a premium version with more features and unlimited sharing between devices in Q1 2013.

Reviewer's Opinion

Nero has come up with a solution to a common problem of keeping photos between devices and social media sites organized with their NeroKwik application. The user interface on the app is very intuitive, featuring a ratings system and social network integration.From the main screen of the application, all the photos on the device, as well as photos from other linked profiles and devices are viewable. The interface worked quickly and smoothly, providing an overview of all my photos.

Along with aggregating photos into one viewing area is the ability to display them with random sizing, by rating, and social media interactions. Photos can also be tagged and added to tapestries, which can be shared with others. The tapestries can be very useful for separating and organizing photos based on a trip or by person. In its initial form, it is a basic application that solves a problem that almost anyone can appreciate. Considering that the application is free, the features are powerful and work very smoothly.

Nero plans to add additional features and support for other operating systems in the near future. Currently the application is limited to Android 4+ users and showing two devices. A premium version of the application will become available early 2013 that will allow linking an unlimited number of devices and include additional features. Overall, the application worked beautifully and did what it is designed to do. I would have liked to see facial recognition and support for other operating systems in a final release product.
