Recent years have seen great advances in the field of mobile device technology and digital photography. These advances have resulted in a significant increase in popularity of such devices. Despite this rise in popularity, technology aimed at facilitating the sharing of the digital photographs using mobile devices is still limited. This paper aims to further the research into such technology, by detailing the creation of an application, for use in co-located sharing of digital photographs, on mobile devices. The application, nicknamed FunkyShare, will allow users to share photographs in a group setting. Our application proposes to take advantage of the digital photographs format and mobile devices technology, to enhance the sharing experience and promote photo-based storytelling. A user centred design process is used in the iterative development and evaluation of two software prototypes. Prototype evaluations, in the form of user experiments, yielded several results, from which new requirements for future prototype iterations are elicited. These requirements form a concrete basis for any future work on an application of this nature.
