About

So yah... why do I hate selfies?

Short answer: I don't 

Long Answer: I don't hate it... It's just that I love the exact opposite of it! You know a picture of person that has perfect lighting, is taken from a suitable distance and that doesn't show hair from their dark and hollow nasal cavity! 

(that wasn't too long, was it?)

Anywho!

Nothing against the compulsive selfiers (is that a word too?), but I think the reason why normal people take selfies, is not because they're ego maniacs, or narcissistic or lonely or have forgotten what they looked like a minute ago!... It's simply because:

  • You don't always have a friend (or soul mate) with you
  • It's not easy to walk up to a beautiful (or handsome) stranger.. and ask them to take your picture
  • Even if you do... they might say "NO"... (Or worse... ignore you!! :S)
  • And then there's that Mr. Bean movie (you know the one in which the guy runs away with Bean's camera and it takes him all day track him down).. if you don't know what I'm talking about watch it here 

So what's the alternative?

The nonselfie app!

It enables you to (silently) ask people around you, who have the same app, if they would take a picture of you, with their phone!

If they don't mind... they simply take the picture of you and it comes to your phone! In fact, if they take picture of a group... they could send it to all of you at once! And then they're done. 

They don't even have it on their phone any more. Which is good... because if they did, then they would have to go into their photos app... delete it... and then the photo stream... delete it... and so on!!

So yah... that's about it.

Our Plans...

Most of the money raised will go into the app development and some advertising. But we also plan to have some awareness articles written on photography when it comes to using smartphones!

In the future we aim at launching more apps that focus on portraiture and ways to bring local businesses into the nonselfie realm.

For example, if you went to a restaurant with a bunch of your friends... the business owner or staff would offer you a group nonselfie... or even have it on their menu!!! (I can't believe they already don't do that!)

And remember!

Oh and drop us a line even if you don't care about the app!... You could join the movement just by caring about people around you. After all, we're all friends... and helping someone on the road with their self portrait doesn't hurt!

And if they forget to say thanks...

Here's big one from us!

THANK yOu ALL!

Risks and challenges

iOS app is in development right now. With it's airdrop feature the functionality is quite doable.

But we plan on moving to other platforms as well. To do that we need to invest in server technology and human resources for the development efforts.

We plan on launching the iOS app in August 2014. The dates for other platforms depend on the success of this Kickstarter project.
