Apple Set to Introduce Photo-Sharing and Video Syncing to iCloud

iCloud Photo StreamApple is set to bring a social feature to its online iCloud service, in addition to the rumored iOS-style notifications, and Notes and Reminders. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Cupertino-company is looking to introduce a new feature that will allow people to share and comment on a set of iCloud photos. Currently, users are limited to a service called Photo Stream, which merely syncs a user’s iPhone photos to the cloud for up to 30 days; from there, the service pushes the photos to the user’s other devices, such as a MacBook Air or an iPad. Apple is also reportedly preparing to add video syncing to iCloud’s abilities, which I assume would work similar to Photo Stream. Video Stream, perhaps? Adding a sharing functionality will harken back to Apple’s MobileMe Gallery days, which allowed users to make photo and video galleries public. The ability to comment, however, will be a new feature.
