RealTimes: A New Photo Sharing Service by RealNetworks

Simply sharing your photos using the cloud has been around for a while. With RealTimes, the new photo sharing service recently launched by RealNetworks, end users can take photo sharing to the next level by creating montages that highlight some of your favorite moments on your mobile device’s camera roll.
RealTimes is based upon the RealPlayer Cloud app that first launched in 2013. With the new app, end users can take photos, videos and music and mix them together to present them in a way that gives users creative control over how their media is shared amongst their peers. Best of all, since RealTimes is a cloud app, users who view your montages do not need the app to view your creations. These montages are called RealTimes Stories.
RealNetworks says that users who have previously used the RealPlayer Cloud app can automatically upgrade their subscription to RealTimes for free. If users had any media stored in their RealPlayer Cloud account, that media is automatically imported into the RealTimes app for your manipulation.
Within the app, users can setup RealTimes to automatically upload media into the RealTimes Stories. Other settings can be configured to alert your friends and family that new media has been uploaded into your RealTimes Story. These live albums are perfect for users who are constantly traveling and wanting to share those experiences with loved ones back home.
RealTimes is available for the following platforms:

  • Android
  • IOS (Apple products)
  • Windows PCs
  • Roku TV
  • Google Chromecast

RealTimes mentions that they are working on building apps for the Mac desktop, Amazon FireTV, Amazon Kindle, Amazon Fire Phone and Xbox One.
The cloud based app gives users 2GBs of space for free while also offering premium plans that start at $4.99 per month. A higher tiered plan costs $9.99 pet month and it gives users access to a wide variety of music tracks that they can mix into their RealTimes Stories as well as filters, special effects and more.
