The LifePics service provides photo finishing and printing, including online storage and sharing of images. The LifePics iOS SDK provides tools that enable developers to integrate the LifePics OPEN (Open Photo eCommerce Network) API into iOS applications. This will allow select pictures to be printed automatically from a user's iOS device. The SDK requires a LifePics developer key for use, and supports iOS 7.0 and later. The easiest method of installation is using CocoaPods.
HTC announced the One smartphone this week, its new flagship device for the year. The One is a sequel to last year's well-liked smartphone and ratchets up the sex appeal with an all-aluminum design. Its feature set, which includes a luscious 5-inch HD display, zippy four-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and shiny metallic colors, will let it compete well against similar phones from other manufacturers. HTC believes developers can plan a role in the One's success, too, with new APIs for the camera and BlinkFeed.
