I was building a new home setup and getting new stuff (monitors, PC components, etc.) every day and I wanted to quickly share pictures of it with my coworkers on our Slack chat and with my friends on a Skype group conversation we have.
The existing solutions involved using multiple apps (camera -> dropbox and then going to the dropbox folder on the computer to get a link), which is not to bad but not ideal.
I’ve built an app - www.vimg.co - which only feature is to take a picture and immediately get a very short link to it, meaning that you can just type it out on your computer.
This was more of a excuse to try out Swift and the whole iOS development thing (I’m a web developer by trade), but if it’s worth a shot I’d love to try and make this work for a few more people.
How do I market such a general purpose application? How do I find out if there are other people “suffering” from the same problem?
