    Hi everyone. My name is Cory and I have been a phantom pilot now for around 8 months out of FL. I got this idea back in January after reading posts and hearing about all of the cool videos and photos being shared here as well as on TV and news articles. I live on the coast and was able to get some really good footage of beaches, boats and wildlife.

    I found an ios developer who has almost completed my build. I am looking for some feedback and possible a list of anyone who would be interested in participating in my Pilot app when I launch here I. A couple weeks.

    I developed an app for strictly UAV photo and short video sharing. We "Drone Pilots" are located worldwide and the photos I am seeing are amazing. Why not get recognized for out beauty and have one place to go to view everyone's photos.

    I just wrapped up the latest build adding comments, like and social media sharing that points back to the app.

    I was just looking for some feedback on my idea. I have been keeping it quiet until now because I didn't want the idea stolen but now I am almost ready to launch.

    I hope I can get a lot of UAV owners to come join me and post our work to show the how beautiful the world is from a Birds-iView.

    Thanks,

    As of right now I have ability to upload photos and 15 second video. The app will let you choose any 15 seconds if the video is too long. I will keep your name for when I am ready to launch in App Store.

    Thanks everyone. Do you all have phantoms / aerial photos?
    Question,

    After flying do you use iphone or ipad more with sharing photos? I personally like the ipad myself if I am not using GIMP for photo editing.

    Do any of you use any specific ipad/ phone apps for your video editing?

    Just curious as I want to make sure I have both ipad and iphone apps at launch.

    #DJIPHANTOM on instagram.

    What would make people want to post on your app as opposed to instagram and facebook?

    I love scrolling through cool aerial photos from all over the world so I think it would be interesting for sure.

    Count me in... I barely get a yawn when I put my shots up on Facebook so would love someplace to share and compare with like minded pilots.
