Mobile phone users are increasingly taking images with their camera phones and sharing them with friends around the block or around the country on social networks. Sharing of images in real-time is one of the reasons the cellular networks in Washington D.C. were strained so much during the recent inauguration of president Obama.

A new application is now available for the iPhone called Tiny Pictures Radar. The purpose of the Radar app is to let iPhone users share images they take with the phone in real-time with friends on any network using any mobile device.

Images can also be shared to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. If you like the idea of Radar but don’t use an iPhone, versions of the software are available for Java platforms, Windows Mobile, Sidekick, and Blackberry handsets. The Radar mobile website also functions with any web-enabled phone on any network around the globe.
