The Next Instagram


New York Times – "Are Disposables the Future of Photo Sharing?"

By Taylor Lorenz

"Dispo, a new photo-sharing app that mimics the experience of using a disposable camera, is taking off. People are clamoring for invites to test the beta version. Early adopters are praising its social features. And investors are betting big on its future.

In the app, users frame photographs through a small rectangular viewfinder. There are no editing tools or captions; when the images “develop” — i.e. show up on your phone at 9 a.m. the next day — you get what you get. Multiple people can take photos on the same roll, as might happen with a real disposable camera at a party."

Protocol – "No editing, no hashtags: Dispo wants you to live in the moment"
