Tackboard, collaborate with friends
VentureFizz - 12/08/2014
Gavin King, a fifth-year computer science student, has found a way to make sharing photos with friends just as exciting as the experience of capturing them.
His newly released mobile app, Tackboard, is a platform for users to collaborate on public photo collections, complete with geo-tagging and a sleek design. Tackboard allows users to sign up and invite their friends through Facebook.
While on co-op in California, Gavin and his friends wanted a better way to post and collaborate on a board of their pictures from a day of surfing or a weekend of road tripping. Gavin realized that most photo-sharing networks didn’t allow for friends to creatively build photo experiences on social media, something he believed was valuable to a group.
