Tokyo, Japan, December 9, 2010—Ricoh Co., Ltd. (president and CEO: Shiro Kondo) today announced the December 9 release of the English version of GR World, a specialized application for iPhones and iPads. This application enables you to extract images that were taken with a GR Digital camera and that were uploaded to Flickr, and then view those images on an iPhone or iPad. The application can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store within the iTunes Store or from the iPhone/iPad App Store.

GR users throughout the world are photographing diverse scenes and moments and publishing the resulting images on Flickr. With GR World, you can easily view those images and enjoy them in slideshows, regardless of time and place.
