Globe PixLink: Mobile Photo & Video Sharing




Globe Telecom will officially launch their new web2.0-ish service tomorrow, called PixLink — a service that allows users to upload photos/videos and share it online.

PixLink can be used in different ways:

  • Allows you to upload pictures from your phone and upload it to PixLink and then republishes them on other photo-sharing sites like Flickr and Picasa Web as well as social networking sites like Facebook and Friendster. You can do the same with videos too (which is automatically republished to YouTube).
  • PixLink can also be an online backup site where you can store unlimited number of photos and videos for free.
  • Share photos/videos with friends who are on PixLink. All uploaded files can be automatically synched with other mobile phones on your friend’s list.

To download the PixLink mobile app to your phone, just text “PIXLINK” to 2988 or you can register online here.

The service is still in beta stage and is free to use until March 5, 2009 (when they decide the final price for the time-based subscription). The web component will always be free but the mobile part will have some sort of time-based subscription (similar to UnliTxt) instead of standard 3G rates.

    Looks promising. Let’s just hope this service won’t be used to leak distasteful pictures and videos from mobile phones. ;)

    republishing it to other sites is good. making it a middleman between web2 sites and phone.

    but to pay for it? wont’ work i think. not as much as a real free service.

    Tried registering but having trouble getting my account verified. Anybody else having the same problem?

    @jhay – they tell me they have a team of people checking the photos and videos before allowing them to be public. Private photos are okay/automatically displayed though.

    @jomar – the paid part is basically the connection charges but instead of doing the 3G rates, they’ll make it whole day flat rate.

    @kuplet – will forward that issue, send me your mobile number.

  5. I think this is some kind of photobucket type of service.

    OMG! Magbabayad ka after ng March 5, e 3G palang ng Globe Telecom iilan pa palang. Ang connection pa ng Wireless (GPRS, Edge or Packetdata) naku po! 3G pa eh iilan lang sa lugar. Kapag nagkonek ka pa sa myGlobe INET o myGlobe Internet ambagal pa. Concentrated lang sila sa GlobeLines Broadband, yun mabilis talaga pero kapag dating sa Wireless Service ng Globe… sobrang bagal talaga

    “After 45 days, your account and stored media will be deleted”

    So if you don’t use/subscribe/renew your subscription.. all of your precious pics and vidz will be deleted.

    how touching….

    Tama po kayo sa inyong sinabi,

    Experience ko lang sa paggamit ko ng Pixlink application, maganda naman kaya lang nitong huli napansin ko Napakabilis ma Drain ng Battery ng cell phone ko (N70) pati na rin (load) nag try kasi ako kahit walang load ok lang pwede mong gamitin ang pixlink, Auto-start-up kasi dito sa n70 ang application na ito, kaya kahit di mo pa i-open ngra-Run na siya- nandoon lang siya kaya ang ginawa ko un-intall ko nalang ito Apps ng Pixlink.
