Dandy, a company based out of BlackBerry’s hometown of Waterloo, ON, launched a brand new app yesterday that I have now become slightly addicted to, Picture This. The idea behind Picture This is simple, it’s in essence a gigantic scavenger hunt that provides users with daily photo challenges that will test all types of different people and their creativity, speed, and alertness. Aside from daily challenges, Picture This has ongoing challenges that you can participate in as well. Pictures are voted on and a winner is determined after the set time expires. The voting and commenting systems are easy, and you can even use your Facebook account to sign up directly within the app.
What drew me to this app instantly is that I just never know what to take pictures of. I love photography, but always feel like I can’t contribute because I just lack any good ideas. Picture This gives you the idea, or the subject; etc, and you put your touch in what you want to show.
- Browse fresh daily and ongoing photo challenges like ‘Office Whiteboard Doodle, ‘Hipster of the Year’, or “View out the window’
- Capture photos directly through the app (no camera roll photos to even the playing field)
- Earn from an expanding list of badges like ‘Fan Favorite’, ‘Staff Pick’, ‘Most Comments’, and ‘First to Submit’
- Submit your own creative ideas to be featured as future challenges
- Leave comments, vote, and share your favorite photo submissions
- Share challenges on your favorite social networks get your friends and family in on the fun
