Adding Photos to Your Guides: Faster-er!

Well, we've been quiet again, and if you've been keeping up with us, you probably know that means we've been buried in the code, making things easier, faster, and generally more awesome so you can share your best photo spots easily. This time is no exception!

We've juiced up the guide creation process so that now you can add spots to your guide as fast as you can find them in your albums. No more waiting around for the photos to load in from Flickr or Google+. If you don't believe me, here's a video that shows the first step of adding photos to your guide, with a before and after for comparison:

You'll notice that the photos you select immediately get added to your guide, no spinner, no delay. We grab all the EXIF data for your photos behind the scenes to make things faster so you don't have to wait around for that (yes, I'd like to point out that the original slowness wasn't exactly our fault...cough cough...Google...cough cough...Flickr...but we've worked around it now to keep things moving).

So what are you waiting for? Head on over and add a photo guide for your city today!
