[itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photofeed-by-pixable/id428933568?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”photofeed” text=”Photofeed”] by Pixable is a free, high quality photo aggregator that organizes your friends’ photos from multiple social media platforms. It’s unique, fun, and highly addicting.

You can browse several categories of Facebook photos that friends have uploaded, such as ‘latest profile pics’ and ‘most popular’, and also view popular Instagram and Flickr photos. Photofeed will send you push notifications whenever your friends ‘Like’, comment on or tag themselves in their pictures. When viewing Facebook photos, you can still comment and ‘Like’ photos as if they were viewing them on Facebook itself. 

Photofeed has what’s called Multi Directional Navigation. Flick your finger left or right to browse through the photos of a category. Flick your finger up or down to browse through the album of the current photo.

The biggest question mark on this app is its method of calculating your Facebook’s ‘most popular’ photows. Pixable claims that their ‘technology analyzes your Facebook account to automatically rank and sort photos’, but fails to explain how. However, I think it’s safe to say that Pixable does what other ‘test your popularity’ Facebook applications do, which is rank in accordance to ‘Likes’, photo comments and album comments.

The app makes it easy to see the latest photos from your Facebook friends without having to deal with the massive amount of extraneous information in their Newsfeeds just to see their friends’ latest photos.
