Photo Siege

Photo Siege enables your PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 (BB10) to view and download Facebook photos.

It allows downloading tagged photos and photo albums from Facebook. You can download your own and your friends' photos. Once the photos are downloaded, you could view them without an internet connection or set them as wallpaper with your Pictures application. You could also transfer them to your PC for archival purposes. Simply login with your Facebook account and start downloading photos with a single tap.

Photo Siege also comes with a nice grid and a full-screen photo view for browsing your photos. You could use it with 1 or multiple Facebook accounts.


Photo Siege has won the 3rd Place in Application Contest for BlackBerry 10 Hong Kong 2013.
