Pingster: The next BIG LEAP into photo sharing apps

Pingster is a revolutionary mobile web app that socially connects people using cell phones and GPS. Pingster is like a Google Maps for images and videos. Unlike Instagram and Snapchat, Pingster allows users to share photos by GPS location rather than a defined group of followers.

Take a photo and upload to Pingster. This moment is then captured forever and tied to that "Particular Spot" through GPS. Each spot on the Globe has the potential to have its own "Story" with your help. All Pingster users walking by that particular spot will be notified about your story. Much like location-based dating apps, Pingster identifies users by their GPS location and notifies them when photos are tied to a location nearby.

Currently we are inviting beta users to assist in populating the Pingster cloud prior to the App launch. In order to participate users need iphone.

Pingster Team

Nancy Shone

CEO

CEO Nancy Shone has worn many hats in her life: wife, mother, engineer, business development manager, video production specialist, and entrepreneur. Nancy has taken a little something from every career and built upon it. Today, she is the owner of her own multi-media, digital marketing firm and now the CEO and founder of Pingster.

Her experience in video production and years of extensive background in design were the cornerstones from which the concept of Pingster developed. Always looking for a better idea and easier way of doing things, Nancy took her frustrations with Instagram and Facebook and began to develop the nascent concept of Pingster. She wanted an app that allowed everyone their moment in the sun, and leveled the playing field when it came to social channel photo-sharing. According to Nancy, “With Pingster everyone becomes an influencer.”

Nancy lives with her husband, three children, and one rather loud and chatty Siamese that thinks it’s a dog.

According to Paras, the future is mobile and apps that make people’s everyday lives easier. “I wanted to work on Pingster because it was a challenge.
