Share the world from your eyes!
Have you ever wanted an image of a physical attraction so badly to the extent of sending friend requests to random people living in the specific location just to have them take a photo for you? Well, thanks to Local Snaps, you won’t need to do that anymore. This app has been designed to give people from all over the world access to photos from different parts of the world. It’s like having the world in your pocket.
The basic concept of this app is simple. You get to share the world from your eyes with people from all over the world. Good thing about it is that you are not only giving, because you will also get to see what other people have been sharing from all over the world. When put together with features like the ability to share, like, follow and mention other people in specific photos, this app comes equipped with all you’ll need to get the best experience when sharing photos.
To install the app, you’ll need a device running on Android 4.0 and above. Once installed, you will need to give a little information about yourself so that other users of the app can know what to call you then you will be good to go. This information goes to your profile together with an optional profile picture to ensure that there’s a human touch to all the interactions that take place within the app.
After creating your profile, you will be ready to go. Just below your phone’s notification area, you’ll find a search function and a small area where you can tap to refresh and check for new content. Below that you’ll have access to five screens, the camera screen is strategically placed between the other four screens to ensure that you don’t waste time switching between apps when you find yourself in a moment worth capturing.
On the left of the camera are two screens: the map and the snaps screen. In the snaps screen, you can view local and international snaps that have been shared in the app. The map screen has a map that can be zoomed in or out to get to your preferred location. It accurately shows all photos taken in the specific locations. So if you want to get a photo of, say, the Eiffel Tower in France, you should find France on the map and zoom in to view all the photos taken around and on the tower.
You’ll also find two screens on the right of the camera screen. These are the profile screen and the snaps screen that you can call the notifications screen. The profile screen shows a number of your photos, a summary of the number of people following you and those that you follow and the number of points that you have accumulated. There’s also a link to edit your profile and to log out.
The most unique thing about Local Snaps is the ability to give points to amazing photos. If you post a good photo, you will earn points from all the people who think that the photo looks good. You can also give points to other people’s photos. This ensures that you can easily tell at a glance photos that will be worth viewing from a specific location without having to look through all of them. This comes in handy in places where many photos have been taken and uploaded.
