(ZD Net) – Microsoft Research’s FUSE Labs is making available a new free phone app that makes photo sharing easier.

The new app, Xim (pronounced “Zim”), allows users to share photos across devices without having to pass their phones around.

Users don’t need to have the Xim app to see shared photos. But Xim does require (for now) a U.S. phone number, allowing users to use email to “Xim” to anyone with a smartphone. The Xims are viewable in browsers and expire after about an hour.

To create a Xim, a user does need the Xim app. Starting today, October 8, Xim apps are available for Windows Phonesand Android phones; an iOS version is coming soon. The Xim creator can choose anywhere from one to up to 50 photos from a camera roll or another third party service like Dropbox, Facebook or Instagram, and then choose whom to invite via a text or emailed invitation.
