Lylt.me, show off your Instagram album like never before with NFC technology

Lylt.me, show off your Instagram album like never before with NFC technology

Lylt.me, show off your Instagram album like never before with NFC tecnology. . . What is the best moment to show your pictures? If you ask an Instagramer the most probable answer is: Any moment! Instagram has created an amazing new behaviour built around photography and social sharing. And Instagramers are proud of their pictures as these are important part of their personal identity. Unfortunately there are still some people around who don’t know about Instagram, so the question is: Is there easy way to show and share your Instagram photos with them?  You bet!   It all revolves around  NFC, a technology that enables phones to activate certain actions when touching some physical objects. You can find more about it in the links at the end of this post. Currently there are more than 200 million people using Instagram, and growing!  NFC usage is also growing; estimations tell us that 2 out of 3 phones sold by 2017 will support NFC. There are hundreds of models that support it already. . Instagram + NFC = Lylt.me . For Lylt.me  best friends are those you meet face to face.  But sometimes bringing our digital and physical lives together is not that easy. That’s why the Lylt key rings have been created, to link the digital and the physical. They are physical because you can touch them, you carry them with you, and they are digital because they can contain your whole online presence in them, not just your Instagram photos.  All this might seem very technical and complicated but it is actually very easy to handle. A very intuitive...

Today we introduce you to Joe Greer, a 25 year old who has called Spokane home the past 4 years.  Lots of interesting things to say about this young man, notably that he is not a traditional photographer, he probably does not even own any camera except the one on his iPhone 5.  But as is often the case with photography, it’s who is behind the device that matters most… .

My name is Joe Greer and I am a 25 year old living in the wonderful Pacific Northwest. My Instagram handle is @ioegreer and my close friends jokingly and lovingly call me “ioe”   I live in Washington and moving here four years ago was by far the best decision I have made in a very long time. Through Instagram I have made so many new friends across the West coast and the world. I love people, because people are weird and so am I. Hobbies included: Running, Hiking, Ping Pong, Photography, Jesus, Cliff Jumping, and Ultimate Frisbee....
GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App?

GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App?

GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App? . Have you heard of the GESTURES CAMERA App?   A few weeks ago it was released in the Apple Store and today it is available for free.  Their mission is simple, to revolutionize the world of camera Apps because: ”camera interfaces really haven’t changed much in over 10 years… we still depend heavily on interacting with tiny buttons to do some of the most basic things, instead of using simple gestures”.   The idea behind this App is to take advantage of today’s touchscreen capabilities to make picture taking a better experience. . It takes a little getting used to but once you learn the basic features of this app, the movement make total sense.   Once you start using it you will find yourself doing swipe gestures with your other camera Apps! . . Think about all features we use on a daily basis on a traditional camera App: capturing, viewing, sharing, deleting, Gestures gives you access to all that on the same screen, no need to interrupt your creative process. . . To capture, you tap…anywhere on the screen. To add a filters you scroll up or down. To see more or less thumbnails in the gallery, pinch in our out. . . To skip strait to the timeline, pinch quickly. To share, swipe up with 3 fingers. . . Because you can tap directly on the screen to focus and capture at the same time, it encourages us to take pictures with natural depth and focus rather than applying fake blur filters. . . And lastly but not least important, speed!  We...
