LOS GATOS, Calif., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- ImageShack Corp. (www.imageshack.com), the largest independent photo hosting website, today introduced an update to its iPhone application that makes sharing media to the real-time web faster and easier. Not only is photo capture and posting streamlined, but now the app will let users record and post video straight to Twitter, YouTube or share by email. Version 2.0 of the application is now available in the iTunes store for free.

Upon capturing media on their iPhone, users can now quickly share it in a variety of ways – either by uploading directly to the ImageShack website, post immediately to Twitter via the company's media hosting service yfrog (www.yfrog.com), send straight to YouTube, or send through email. The latest iPhone update now means yfrog is the only Twitter service supporting both photo and video sharing.

"Taking a picture or video, going home and uploading it hours later just doesn't cut it anymore – people are increasingly looking for ways to share moments of their lives in real time, and ImageShack's updated app is designed to keep up with that need," said Jack Levin, co-founder and CEO of ImageShack. "The iPhone has made it effortless for people to capture photos and videos wherever they are, and we're making it even easier to now share that media with family and friends instantly."

ImageShack's updated iPhone app will feature video recording straight from the iPhone 3GS, in-app video playback, and multiple log-in options for uploading.

As with ImageShack's original iPhone app, users can still keep a library of photos, browse through them via their ImageShack account, edit tags and delete photos. With Version 2.0 users can also zoom and scroll while browsing through pictures and include location information about newly taken images.

ImageShack's new iPhone application can be found in the iTunes Store at: itunes.apple.com/us/app/imageshack-uploader/id348195134?mt=8
