Getty Images Gets Mobile

Online stock media giant Getty Images is going mobile at last. The Getty Images iPad app is now available on the App Store (iTunes link).

This is fantastic news for creative professionals who are most likely always in and out of client offices and previously have had to rely on their laptop or their clients computers for selecting stock artwork on the road.

The app allows users to search Getty Images library of over 24 million images, compare images, view and share lightboxes and shake to view random search results. You can even add voice recordings to lightboxes.

While the App Store gets filled with junk and timewaster apps, it’s nice to see apps with real substance here and there. Creative professionals should definitely check this one out.

The app is free, but a Getty Images account is required.
