Color Launches as an Instant Social Group Photo Sharing App

Just what we need, another photo sharing, social sort of groupish app that we’ll use for another two days, right?  Well, this one might be around for a while if the $41 million in funding that it received has anything to do with it.  The app is called Color, and it allows you to take photos while you are with friends, family, etc. and instantly share them together into a group gallery.  As long as you are within 150ft of each other, the photos should automatically pull together.  You can comment on recently taken photos, thumb them up if you like, and even share the entire thing to Facebook or Twitter.

The idea has “win” written all over it, but after playing with the app itself for 5 minutes, we’ll have to hope they put some more time into developing it.  I was able to get my DX and Thunderbolt to snap photos and instantly share together, but my original DROID struggled.  The app itself is also incredibly tough to navigate.  Someone tell these folks that Android users have more than one button on their phones.  Hello, Settings menu?

So the next time you are out with a group of friends, try suggesting that they all grab this app and snap photos throughout the night to bring back memories that you may have sloppily forgotten.  150ft though!

Cheers @koush!

    I downloaded this app just out of curiosity, it is awful, lol what a joke. Not only do I hate Facebook, but I hate this idea even more… ohh and it crashed like 4 out of the 5 times I even tried stuff.

    Hey all – if you like the concept of Color, you may like Droplat. You can share any type of file on Droplat, and ‘leave’ files at locations.

    We can’t say that it isn’t buggy, but we can say that most users love our UI, we have $0 funding, and only 3 team members. In fact, we only have one person working full-time and developing the Android client (me).

    It’s free and for Android 2.1+. http://dropl.at

    Saw a review of this app on CNN… there’s literally no way I would download this app.

    From what I’ve read -
    Every photo you take with it becomes the property of “Color” and you can’t delete them.
    There are no privacy settings – any and everyone can see the pictures you’ve taken with the app.

    I could see why people would want to share pics with friends, but why complete strangers? Also, the article mentioned that this had chatroulette written all over it – so user beware.

    So what happens when a sexual predator takes a picture of his junk and it gets picked up by a 14 year old girl running it on her phone?

    Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    too bad every picture taken is property of Color Labs Inc. when you take them. LOL

    This app got some pretty negative review in the market, might wait awhile.

    1 more way of sharing with people I DONT want. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Latitude, Snapfish, blah blah blah.. so many narcissistic people out there wanting everyone to know how many cool places they visit and all the cool people they hang out with and how many cool things they see that you don’t. It’s getting to be so absurd, it’s shocking people can even function when they have so much shizz & updating they have to keep up with just in the name of being “social”.

      Before I came in here I thought to myself “Aww f**k now I have to make friends if I want to use it.”

    • FortitudineVincimus

      dont you get it.. you dont have to have 1 single actual friend.. all these products just manufacture them for you and make you think you have friends and followers that even give a shizz about you. just jump on board and you to can be popular, even amongst people who have no f***** idea who you are.
