BETA REVIEW: 500px iPad App – Slideshow

September 29, 2011

Yet another update of the 500px BETA iPad app was released today. I’ve never seen a development team work quite this fast and yet still release a relatively bug-free software.

If you haven’t read my three previous posts which describe the app in detail and show off the screenshots for the main pages of the app, please see:

Today… The update included, among other things, the release of the very solid Slideshow feature.

This feature allows you to

  • Run a slide show beginning with the thumbnails on any given screen
  • Use any one of three transitions
  • Play music from your iPod app while the show runs (optional)
  • Slideshow Launch Menu – In the bottom left corner (also available in the upper right corner on full image pages) is the Slideshow button. From there, your options for setting the parameters of the Slideshow appear.
  • Music Selection Screen – When you select the ‘Music’ button, you may select multiple tracks from your iPod by artist, track, playlist, etc.

TIP: Any photo enthusiast worth his salt knows that Toto’s Africa makes an especially good backdrop for Landscape photos (Ed. Note: This statement is the opinion of the author and does not necessarily reflect the musical preference of 500px, although we’re pretty sure they would agree, because… honestly, who the hell doesn’t love that song?)

As for what the Slideshow actually looks like, it is the full screen version of the photos, as crystal clear as if you’d expanded the images manually, which was described in my previous posts.

More updates to come as new builds are released!
