Remember LiveShare from Cooliris? It’s Android has undergone a facelift and is back with more features. The new LiveShare will include a free messaging service and of course, continue to share pictures with your friends.
It seems like Cooliris, the company behind LiveShare shifted their focus on iOS, Android and web only. Previously, there is still Windows Phone version. Now, I don’t see it.
Anyway, it is a tough fight right now as Google recently introduces Google+ Event Party Mood. It is also able to share event pictures and it has a large install base.
Here is the Press Release.
