Radar.net was a photo sharing website and application that allowed users to share pictures and videos. Only those people chosen by the user could view the uploaded content. It was targeted at people who used mobile phones with cameras to take pictures.[1] The application supported multiple platforms including web, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Java (software platform).

Radar.net was similar to other photo sharing websites such as Flickr, but was adapted especially for viewing content created with mobile phones. Uploading could be done either using a PC, or by sending the picture or video from a camera phone to a personalized email address. According to John Poisson, CEO of Tiny Pictures Inc., who started the site, more than 750,000 people had registered on the site since its launch in June 2006, as of February 2008.

Radar shut down on May 26, 2010 at noon (PDT).[2]
