Following its successful launch on other operating systems, Shuttersong's Windows 8 app builds on the platform's strengths including system-wide gestures for playing music and sharing Shuttersongs. As a social and photo app, the app's intuitive wordless design is positioned to thrive in Windows, where social content and sharing photos are key features of the operating system. In addition to the exceptional camera quality in Windows 8 devices, Windows 8 users can also effortlessly access their photo library on their device or in the cloud, and easily create Shuttersongs from archived images.

"Windows 8 makes for a perfect landscape for Shuttersong – beautifully meshing imagery, sound and touch, and putting creativity into the hands of millions of new users," said Shuttersong founder and CEO, William Agush. "This is a major step forward for Shuttersong as we expand our user base. We're excited to see what Windows 8 users can create with their photos and music libraries."

"Apps really come to life on Windows," said Todd Brix, general manager, Windows Apps and Store, Microsoft Corp. "Shuttersong takes advantage of Windows through features like snap and share charm integration, and makes it easy to share experiences via many social networks through the Windows 8 interface." 

"InfoTrends estimates that U.S. consumers will share more than 75 billion camera phone and digital camera photos this year. Shuttersong provides a rich multimedia photo sharing experience that preserves more than just visual memories, with easy sharing through many of the same channels that people are already accustomed to using," said analyst Alan Bullock, Associate Director, Connected Imaging Trends Service at InfoTrends.
