photup v0.9 beta 1

If you’ve seen my Twitter lately you’ll probably have seen that I’ve been working on a new app called ‘photup’. The basic premise of the app is to share your photos to Facebook, nice and simple! The easiest way to think about it is that it’s a Android port of Facebook’s

Camera app, just without the unnecessary News Feed.

Just to be clear, this is not connected in any way with Friendcaster or OneLouder. There is no common code between the apps (other than open-source libraries, like ActionBarSherlock).
