The number of people using cameraphones is growing by tens of millions every month. Yet the majority of cameraphone users have difficulty transferring photos off their phone and sharing them with others. PhotoRouter is a software application for cameraphones that makes the photo sharing process destination-centric by allowing users to focus on who the photo should go to, not how it needs to get there. Attempting to produce an application which meets user needs better than current, technology-centric cameraphone photo sharing applications, we designed PhotoRouter. In this paper we describe PhotoRouter's user interface innovations that we will show in our technical demonstration.
