iPhone is one of the latest smartphones and it has grown in popularity ever since it was first released in 2007. The iPhone has more advanced features than a regular cell phone and is more suitable for internet related tasks because of its WiFi and 3G support. This report describes the development of a server API and a photo sharing application aimed to run on the iPhone platform. The project was issued by Piclair, the image uploading service located at http://piclair.com. Piclair already possesses efficient image uploading software for Windows and Mac OS X. The idea was to broaden the user base by entering one of the fastest growing smartphone platforms. The objective of the project was to develop a powerful but simple photo uploader dedicated to Piclair.com running on the iPhone and to create a lightweight API to handle the uploads server side. This report spans from the idea stage to a finished product. The result was a fully functional API and a non cumbersome Piclair characteristic photo uploader, suitable not only for WiFi connected devices but also 3G and EDGE.
