Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.

    I downloaded this application to use for my photography business. I’ve tried nearly all the features. I like the fact that I can customize it for my brand, and find it will be very useful in gathering client choices as they review an album from their photo session with me.

    When selecting images off the iPad you can only single select images. However, you can tap each image in the selector box one after the other and it will queue them up for import. In the other import methods you can multi-select images.

    When importing images (or videos) from any source other than those already on the iPad, the file names are preserved, which is a nice feature.

    The ability to capture a client’s choices & comments via an email is very handy.

    I’ll definitely be using this for my photography and client presentation/selection.
