Xim: Microsoft's new cross-platform photo sharing app launched

Microsoft has introduced a new cross platform photo sharing application called Xim. The app, available for Windows Phone, Android and iOS, lets users share pictures with a group of friends nearby. The app lets you share pictures from your device and cloud accounts.

Only one person needs to download the application in order for everyone to participate. You can invite friends through your contact list, email or phone number. The app lets you select photos from your camera roll, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, or OneDrive.  If you friends have also added the Xim app, they can add photos or people to the Xim and easily extend the conversation. The images delete themselves after a certain time. However, you can save a photo by a long press.

Xim is currently available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices. Microsoft says the app works in most web browsers as well. The app will be initially rolled out in US and Canada only, but plans to add additional country support shortly.
