Snapr: the Gorgeous Photo-Sharing Platform for... →
Our most glowing machine translated review yet :) “Snapr is the cold mobile photo-sharing platform.” “Snapr places clever concentration upon location. The app can take note of your place when we take pictures, in conclusion formulating an tellurian atlas of common content.” “If we have been starting to consider Snapr is usually about location, you’d be mistaken....
Capture the Flag - Aviary Spotlight →
Thanks again to the team at Aviary for another nice write up on their blog. Just had an update on whats coming for the Aviary Feather SDK and its looking awesome. “At Aviary, we’re a big fan of photos (naturally), but what you might not know is that we’re equally fond of games. When it comes to intra-office competition, the pool table, Quake tournaments, and FIFA offer ample opportunities...
Aviary + Snapr = :)
Before things get crazy again I wanted to do a post about our recent partnership with Aviary. We used the new iOS/Android native versions of Aviary’s Feather image editing SDK in both Snapr v2, and Capture the Flag. The Feather SDK includes a full suite of creative tools for editing and adjusting images. You can do basic things like cropping, rotating, and adjusting levels, and there is...

We made a Tumblr to showcase some of the best photos that have come in on Capture the Flag. If you are into rugby its a great way to catch a slice of the action from the recently held Rugby World Cup in New Zealand! Bear with us as we continue to bring the blog up to date with images from around the finals (and the AB’s victory parade :) ).
Its been a long time since we properly checked in on this blog to write a post about where things are at! This is mainly because over the last 4 months we took on an insane workload. Not only were we producing Snapr v2 for iPhone and Android (a whole new app from the ground up) and v2 of our Snapr website, but we were also expanding the capabilities of our API to include location based gaming...

Aviary Mobile Spotlight on Snapr →
“Many consider cartography a lost art, but Snapr’s new iOS app combines old school technique with modern day technology. With GPS and geotags, Snapr enables users to create photographic maps that are organized by place (latest photos taken in a given part of town) and time (images that were all taken around the same time).”

thanks to @aboutfoursquare for a nice write up! “Snapr offers a nice departure from the filter-centric nature of most photo-sharing apps. The Aviary editing tools are easy to use and sharing to foursquare is a breeze. Capture the Flag offers a slight diversion from other photo apps. The game aspect adds a little fun to something that’s normally fairly mundane. If I’m going to be sharing...

Fantastic speech from Hyperfactory CEO Derek Handley. More profit from virtual farmers on farmville than NZ’s entire dairy industry.. haha! love it.. Would like to take a moment to thank Derek for his support of Snapr so far - providing both intros and mentorship for us in NY, and also giving us a free desk space when we are there.
The mysterious tendency of Snaprs random (well.. base32) image codes to make words that connect meaningfully with their associated images continues.. In fact when you see the artwork we have as part of our upcoming release you will realize that this co-incidence is beyond uncanny!!
Snapr review on App Summary →
“The streets have eyes, man! We’re the iSpy generation. A mobilized army of iPhone snap happy freaks, sharing our world view one photo at a time. Not news, really. It’s been happening on Facebook for an age now. But with Snapr it’s a whole lot easier, and a whole lot more in your face.” “On a lighter note, I seriously wish that my mum, the avid amateur photographer that...

iSupr8 does an awesome job making your iPhone vids look like Super 8 footage, and now you can share a screengrab from your vid to Snapr from the app! Looking forward to developing more social features with these guys, great to see more more people picking up our API!

API of the Week on Read Write Web! →
“Snapr is a mobile application for sharing geo-tagged images. Its goal is to create a “live map of the world’s photos.” It also has an API that enables developers to add location information and Instagram-like social photo feeds to your own mobile photo apps. You can also use Snapr’s API to give users the ability to send photos to multiple services from one...

Since I recently touched down in London for a visit I thought it might be a good time to reflect on our first five months in New York. We started Snapr from New Zealand and following the launch of our v1 product we headed to the States to get closer to the action (will blog about why we picked NY over the Valley soon). It’s been a great experience so far, but it definitely hasn’t...

“Trotting around town, you can instantly share your photos, plotting them onto the Snapr map and tweeting the info out. Users can browse through the real-time stream of all the pictures uploaded at specific locations and read through informational comments. The Snapr iPhone App turns boring geographical maps into a worldly picturesque album”

“As the proverb goes, if you can’t beat them it’s best to join them, and that’s exactly the move that Snapr made when it opened an API this month that other photo apps can use to create a social component to their own apps.” “The API will allow other photo apps to add sharing capabilities, add photo streams similar to Instagram’s, or add location-based and mapping features....

“Snapr is a New York startup and iPhone app for snapping, geotagging and sharing photos. Open up the app and see photos others have shot in the same spot. But Snapr’s smart—it’s not trying to compete with umpteen other photo apps. Instead, it wants to connect all of them. Snapr just released a new A.P.I. (Application Programming Interface) that will make it easy for developers...
Big API Update coming this week!
I know we have been quiet lately.. Its because we have been working so hard! Our time in New York has been great, the start up scene here is buzzing and everyone has been amazingly helpful to us. Wow there is a lot of buzz around mobile photosharing at the moment! We have our own take on things and a fully featured awesome new product due early next year. As you may know Snapr has a really good...
Snapr API ready to play with! →
Check it out folks! Its the same API that powers our website and mobile apps so rest assured that its fully featured and works great.. Please contact us for support if you need it (email firstname.lastname@example.org). We are working on a whole new wave of features for the next release and would love to hear your feedback.
Camera Roll EXIF Update
If you are like us you will be frustrated that when you upload an old image from your camera roll to Snapr it tags it with your current location intstead of the location where the photo was taken.. This is because prior to iOS 4.1 Apple did not allow developers to use its APIs for properly reading/writing EXIF data from the camera roll. Good news is that we will be releasing an update that fixes...
Nice to see a good review in the App store!
“Great new way to document your World (5 stars) by Brooklyn Beat I used this App to show my friends and family a recent trip to Europe. It worked wonderfully. I could walk my friends through every detail in chronological order or just let them look for themselves. I usually come back from a trip with very little to say about my trip. This app helped me remember the little details, the funny...

“NZ Fashion Week has finished for another year. And, away from all the preening, strutting and Blue Steeling on the catwalk, a new Kiwi-conceived social media tool was making a name for itself behind the scenes, with the free iPhone photo app Snapr being employed to stream and geo-tag live photos from the runway straight to the NZFW website.”

From NZ Herald Article- “When you’re at almost any happening these days, there’s a sort of Twitter cloud going up around you. This may suit those who like to bend their heads down and tap words out while they’re attending things, but that’s certainly not everyone. Snapr does the same except with photos. All you do is boot the Snapr app up and take the picture;...

Thoughts on Facebook Places
It means a lot to me that companies like Foursquare and Gowalla (and of course Snapr!) will continue to thrive following Facebook’s entry to the LBS marketplace. No one wants to see a web where the only viable option for a start-up is to do something interesting enough to be bought and assimilated by Facebook or Google. For some people that’s always going to be a good exit option,...
