Today’s Killer Startup: PeeqSee
PeeqSee is a photo app for iOS that brings an element of play into the photo experience by letting users cover up select parts of the photo for others to uncover.
Why It’s A Killer Startup:
Most photo apps are static. You look at a picture or video, maybe leave a comment, occasionally have the option of doing something yourself, and that’s it. While looking at and sharing photos is great, why not have a little fun while you’re at it?
PeeqSee is all about turning sharing images into a fun game for both parties. On one end, you can take a photo and decide which parts of it you want to cover up. It could be something funny, like an unexpected element to the photo, something sweet like a smiling little face, or something sexy like… Well, you know what like.
On the other side of the interaction, users can check out photos and click on the covered up parts, uncovering surprises that range from silly to seductive. Photos can be shared privately or with the whole network, so each user has control over who sees their images.
In the time that I played with PeeqSee this morning, I uncovered bearded men’s heads on bikini-clad bods, a beautiful image of a deep sea diver, and Kim Kardashian’s butt.
And while PeeqSee is a fun game for individuals, it can also be great for brands looking to up engagement. Instead of just looking at your pictures, users will actually take the time to interact with them. That means they’re spending more time with your product and everyone knows that exposure is a huge part of advertising.
So whether you’re looking to flirt with your boo, increase brand engagement, or just have a little fun, check out PeeqSee for a new kind of photo game app.
