Startup

Group Picture which includes the photographer?

Hi,

Ever noticed your group photos are always missing the photographer? 

We, an early stage startup in Lahore (Pk), have created this amazing iPhone app – groopic – which lets you take group pictures which include the photographer! 

We are currently in beta and have launched the application in a limited number of countries including India. It would be really great if the rodinhoods community can give us feedback on it! 

You can: 
1. Download the app from Apple AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/app/groopic/id584710005
2. Visit our website: http://groopic.eyedeus.com
3. Watch a quick demo of the app at: http://vimeo.com/eyedeus/groopic

You can connect with us at: 
1. Facebook Page: http://facebook.com/groopic
2. Twitter: @groopicApp
3. Emailgroopic@eyedeus.com

Do tell us what you think! 🙂

Cheers, 

Ali
The Groopic Team.

  1. Gr8 idea, good concept…can make it more user friendly.

  2. I have not tried this app but saw the video, very good concept. Looks promising. Many time while taking the photograph, I felt I should be there in that great picture.

  3. Thank you so much for your reviews Manish and Suhel! 🙂

    Please do check it out on AppStore too!

  4. Awesome idea! Way to Go man!!

  5. Saw the video. WAY TO GO!

    But what’s you revenue model here? Are you planning to make this a paid app?

  6. Top-of-the-mind Thoughts:

    It cannot be used by 2 guys? 

    4 or more require folks to freeze in position. Slightly difficult, in my opinion. Bigger group photos would be near-impossible.

    So in a way, it may only work for a group of three. I tried a picture with three of us, and sadly the second fellow lost his head and half his being in the process. Clearly I need more practice 🙂

    Not trying to nit pick – please read the above as a first-time user’s experience 🙂 The 3-member limitation pushes one to think scalability and usage frequency. Would love to see future versions, too. 

  7. Thanks for the feedback Kamal Krishna! 🙂

    The app does work with 2 people (although the toughest scenario), you just have to tap on the other person and take the images from roughly the same location (helps you by showing the last image overlaid on the screen). About 4 or more people, you dont have to freeze – you just have to stand there! Try that, and you will see the magic! :). Have a look at this: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/383943_449237155129993_1646227895_n.jpg. One of the picture that was sent by friends. 

    We do understand that it has a bit of a learning curve involved. We are already working on it. I think you should be better after a few tries! 🙂

    Once again, thanks again for your awesome feedback. Keep posting images, we love them! 🙂

  8. Thanks Sujay!

    Yes, we are planning to make it a paid app after the beta testing. 🙂
