Halfway between Snapchat and iCloud’s photo stream – Flashgap is the solution for anyone prone to experiencing black outs the morning after a heavy night before.
The concept is extremely simple:
Before you start your evening invite your friends to a group album.
Throughout the evening each person can take pictures using the app which will then disappear after 3 seconds.
The pictures in the album will only be revealed for the whole group to see the next day, at precisely 12 noon.
Flashgap was developed by four students in France and has just launched in the UK this week. We caught up the CEO: Julian
What prompted you to create Flashgap?
We were watching the Hangover together and the ending credits show a series of photos from the guy’s infamous night out and that’s what really triggered our thinking.
Why are you coming to the UK?
Some of the best parties and night outs I had were in the UK.. You know how to party here. People in the world start partying at 10 or 11 pm, in the UK it starts at 7, and you guys do that every day of the week.
What’s the vision for Flashgap?
We are not really interested in taking pictures of food or the dust on my desk (like lots of people do). We don’t care about taking the same selfie ten times. With Flashgap you take a photo and you have three seconds to see it,then it disappears and you forget about it. You live ‘in the moment’ without spending a lot of time on your phone, and then the next day you can laugh seeing all the pictures taken by you and your friends.
We want people to ‘live in the moment’
