digital imagery, today announced the launch of its award-winning iOS application in German and Portuguese languages, supporting the company's goal of becoming more local for users across the globe. The first non-English release of the universal iOS app comes as total downloads surpassed 500,000 this week.
"With customers in 150 countries, Shutterstock is focused on providing a truly localized search and discovery experience, and our mobile app is one way we are working to achieve that," said Vice President of International, Gerd Mittmann. "We released the app in German and Portuguese because they represent two of the most important markets for our growing global business. Now it's even easier for our German and Portuguese-speaking customers to search, find, download and sync relevant imagery whether they're in an office or on the go."
Shutterstock's app provides users another innovative way to browse, search and get inspired by the Company's vast collection of beautiful, high-quality imagery. The iPhone app presents a host of exciting features, including three ways to filter images by color. Users can filter results with an RGB color picker, by selecting an image from their photo library, or by snapping a photo using iPhone's camera.
Users can also browse curated lightboxes, and create and save to their own – all of which sync with Shutterstock.com, Shutterstock Instant and other devices using the iOS application.
