[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - Apperture, LLC today is pleased to announce the release of Where Am I? 1.0, their new photo-sharing game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Where Am I? is a new, free iPhone app that allows you to quickly and easily share a photo of your location with your Facebook friends and have them try and guess where you're at.
If you were to compare us to some popular apps out there:
* Foursquare is "look where I'm at." Where Am I? is "guess where I'm at."
* Instagram is "look at my photo." Where Am I? is "guess where my photo was taken."
Snap. Share. Play.
'Where Am I?' turns photo sharing into a game that's as easy as 'Snap. Share. Play.' Snap a new photo or choose one from your albums. Enter possible answers to the question: 'Where am I?' manually or using Facebook Places. Then automatically share the quiz with your friends via Facebook and play the game. Can they guess where you are? Whether you share a photo of one of the Seven Wonders of the World or a photo of one of the four walls of your bedroom, we think you'll love playing this game with your friends.
Out of the wild. In the name of fun.
"There are a lot of great iPhone photography apps in the market, as well as a lot of great social, location-based games, but no app that combines the two like 'Where Am I?' said Brent Carlson, 'Where Am I?' co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer. "We noticed the 'Where Am I?' concept happening in the wild - people organically posting photos on Facebook and asking if their friends could guess where they were hanging out - and we jumped at the chance to make it easier and more fun."
Version 1.0 lets you know if you've guessed right or wrong, calculates your accuracy and maintains a photo history. Future versions will incorporate additional gaming elements, as well as photo editing, expanded social network integration, and more. Help us by becoming one of the first beta users to play, spreading the word to friends, and sharing your thoughts on how we can improve our app.
* iPhone, iPod touch (4th Gen)
* iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
