The main reason people should buy a Chromebook? Google+ integration. And as time goes on, we'll be seeing more and more of packaged apps such as Google+ Photos which will make Chromebooks a Plusser's dream.
Developer +François Beaufort has shared screenshots of the new Google+-integrated photos app along with some information and thoughts:
Today, I'm excited to share with you some screenshots of the upcoming Google+ Photos App (aka Pulsar).You can read his post here, though we've extracted what you're looking for below:
This Chrome App made by Google is powered by Native Client technology and is giving you the ability to upload and share photos from Google Chrome.
Two key features in my opinion are:
- Automatic selection of the best shots
- Automatic import of photos when I plug in a camera or memory card
This App definitely showcases what looks like a full-fledged Chrome App...
|Welcome to Google+ Photos - All your photos|
|Welcome to Google+ Photos - Safely stored|
|Welcome to Google+ Photos - Automatically organized & ready to share|
|The settings screen|
|The lightbox with the details pane to the right|
|The lightbox, again|
As we've said, the Google+ Photos app is only currently available on the Chromebook Pixel, but should be ready to install on other Chromebooks in a few weeks time.
