[prMac.com] Oakland, California - Mission: Pic is an iOS app that challenges your creativity, photography skills and the way you look at the world by turning mobile photography into a game. Every day a new mission is assigned and players endeavor to take a photo that satisfies the assignment. Players vote photos up and down creating an ever-evolving leaderboard filled with incredible pics.
If Instagram is a photo app with a social layer then Mission: Pic is a photo app with a game layer. Using a Tinder style swipe-to-vote mechanic, players create a leaderboard of each day's missions by voting awesome photos up, less impressive ones down or swiping left to pass.
For example, today's mission might be "Metal." Players may take any photo they like that satisfies the assignment; it could be a close-up of an aluminum can, a well-framed escalator or a shot from the crowd at an AC/DC concert, but rest assured, the best photo will win the day and one talented mobile photographer will walk away with pride, glory and likely, a few more fans.
"We shoot for missions that can be completed any day, anywhere, by anyone, but nothing gets us more excited than hearing from players who say they spend all day looking a little closer at the world trying to find the perfect picture," says Rounsaville.
