    Hi!

    My Moment came with a default app called "Photo & Video Places" which opens a lengthy menu with items such as "Add a new place", "Update credentials" and "View queue".

    What is all this? What is Photo & Video Places - what does it do - where is the user's guide for this stuff? :thinking:

    It's for adding photos to sites like PhotoBucket.

    Thank you. It's certainly confusing at first sight. I wonder where they explain these things.

    it's useful for me to easily send photos to facebook. Doesn't seem like it's hogging any resources.

    Just so everyone realizes, if you remove this, the "share" option on media won't list anything but gmail I think.

    it never "hogged" any of my resources, but it would load itself, using my resources, and i never used the application.
    to send a picture to fbook, i just send an email to the "secret" email address facebook provides. same works with twitpic for twitter. for me it was redundant to have an application doing what i already do thru gmail plus loading itself into my phones memory.
    i think i saw options for uploading photos to photobucket and perhaps other services, but i never use them, so these features were also useless to me.
