[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Casty 1.1, the world's first photo-sharing app with real rewards, has launched today for iPhone and Android users around the globe.
Everyday millions of photos are uploaded from mobile phones to the internet. But getting a simple "like" for all that effort of tweaking filters and setting up intricate shots can often seem a waste of time. Available starting today to download for free, the revolutionary new app Casty rewards users for doing what they already do best - sharing great photos with friends and followers.
With Casty, photos scattered across Facebook and Instagram or in the mobile device camera roll can be collected into unified albums with drag & drop simplicity. Users can then invite others as authorized "Casters" to also contribute to an album.
For example, after a get-together reunion of friends is over, each friend can add their own pictures from the event to a shared Casty album for everyone else to see. With privacy controls and Caster invitations, an album can be as public or private as you'd like. Even other friends and family that could not attend can be invited to the Casty reunion album to upload perhaps old snapshots or yearbook photos and help rekindle the memories.
But that's not even half of what Casty can do.
Any Caster with enough activity on Casty can earn real cash rewards. Once enabled on qualified accounts (as easy as flipping a switch), Casty will automatically insert small ads between photos that generate revenue for the Caster. The more often a user "casts" their photos, the more followers will see them, and hence the more chances to earn some extra cash.
Update plans are already under way to bring expanded follow and subscribe functions to keep track of favorite Casters, increased comments functions, expanded social network profiles support and more.
Whether sharing a pic of today's snazzy outfit, the beautiful capture of a seaside vacation, or that cool snap of the city lights, Casty is the perfect app to earn real rewards and get more than just a simple thumbs up. Mobile photographers and social network fans alike can get started today for free with Casty for iPhone and Android.
