Photo Table brings back that old school feel of handling photographs

When I first saw an early version of Photo Table, I was instantly reminded of Microsoft's Surface which itself is designed to remind users of how we used to handle photographs, before the digital age.  Here, in Rochester, New York, that was the golden age for the one-time largest local employer, Kodak.  Remember ordering prints from "film" and then opening the envelope and scattering them across a table for viewing?  Now, we see photos instantly and rarely print them.  Even then, if we print them, it's the ones we specifically wanted in hardcopy.  But that feeling of wonder and surprise is back with Photo Table.

Local developer Paul Solt, perhaps channeling the Rochester photographic history, created Photo Table and is making it free, today, for the first ten followers who sign up at  This is worth doing, because the app is $4.99, which isn't cheap but it's representative of the hard work and solid design that went into the app.  Indeed Mr. Solt spent time at Apple, Inc., so he learned from the masters.
