Hipster has joined the mobile social local photo sharing locomotive and made an app that yes, lets people share photos, with their phones.
The new app allows you to choose the style of your postcard, tag friends and see what they are up to, share your creations on Facebook and Twitter, and even get a look at top postcards from your current location.
Through its dedicated official iOS and Android client, Hipster lets you explore, access, create, design and share stylish geo-tagged postcards from your smartphone on the go.
While Ludlow saw an Android app as being vitally important (he didnt want to cater to only half the market with the currently available iOS app), the company isnt locking users into a native interface.
It’s all about making digital postcards with a combination of text and images, which can be shared on social networks too.
The app also offers a comprehensive suite of conventional socializing tools, and supports saving postcards to drafts to upload them in bulk.
At startup, the app prompts you to log in with your Hipster or Facebook account.
New users can grab a free account by simply providing their email address.
Once logged in, you can start exploring Hipsters (postcards with additional info) shared across the network in multiple ways.
By swiping left or right across the app’s homescreen, you can switch between postcards are shared by your Friends, from Nearby locations or from anywhere across the globe.
Tapping a postcard reveals the photo attached to it and all attached details such as the username of the uploader, sharing time, and the comments, views and likes that the post has received.
While tapping the map lists all other Hipsters shared from that particular location, tapping the username the uploaders activities on the network.
Just hit the camera icon at the top-right of the app’s homescreen, pick an image from your gallery, or instantly snap and import one into the app.
From the screen that follows, you can select a postcard design template of your choice, as well as a nearby location to tag it with.
Once past that, you’re provided with an option to add a brief note to the postcard, and select the network(s) and friends to share it with.
From within the More tab on the app’s homescreen, you can check your Hipster Profile, Notifications, Settings and Pending Uploads.
From the same screen, you can Search Hipster for items of interest by relevant keywords, Find/Invite friends on the network, get friend recommendations, and authorize the app to use your social network accounts for sharing purposes.
Hipster is available for free on the Android Market, and requires Android OS v2.2 or higher to run.
