Google’s Photovine for iOS now open to all

August 17th, 2011 by Derek Anderson Leave a reply »

Photovine is the cool photo story creation app just opened to the Apple Market for all to use.

Apparently Google’s Slide team has been hard at work perfecting this cool photo meme creation app that appears to have sparked a lot of interest lately.

So what is Photovine? It’s a photo-sharing application for iOS that puts an emphasis on “vines”. That is, photo-centric moments or ideas that connect you with other users. Yes, that sounds a bit pretentious. And the best way to understand it is to watch the video below. But think of it this way: you take a picture of your favorite cologne. This prompts another user to take a picture of their favorite fragrances. And that prompts another user to do the same. Etc. It’s more or less theme-based picture-taking.

This is an interesting concept because it spurs users into action. With an open-ended picture app you can take a picture of anything, and to some users, that’s daunting. What do you take a picture of when you can take a picture of anything? With Photovine, the experience is more guided. Or, if you wish to take a picture of anything, you can simply start your own vine.
