58 North launches one-of-a-kind app, developed by Bottle Rocket… Pholium!

58 North is proud to announce the launch of Pholium, a photo enthusiast’s dream e-book creation app. To date, Pholium, developed by Bottle Rocket Apps, is the only app that allows you to create, edit, publish and share your photo e-book all from within the app on the iPad!

This one-of-a-kind app contains three main areas – the Gallery, the Studio and the Library. All of the images on the user’s iPad are available for import into the Gallery. Once in the app, the images can be edited with controls that adjust size, brightness, contrast, exposure, and creative options (black & white, sepia, etc.). You also have the option to organize and name your images in stacks for easy identification.

Next, the Studio is where the user can see the possibilities begin to unfold as their e-book comes to life. In this stage, you can personalize the cover, determining the layout for each page, freely rotate images 360 degrees, layer images on top of one another and so much more!

Once complete, your e-book is ready to be saved to the Library. There is no limit to the number of e-books you can create for free – so have it! Plus, when you are ready to share your creation with others, the app allows you to send each e-book to up to 10 recipients wirelessly using Pholium’s cloud server. After the first 10, you may purchase additional shares for $0.99, allowing you to send your e-book to 10 more recipients. The end result is a high-quality photo e-book, complete with page curling and iPad optimized image viewing, for you and your friends!
