Hipster is an application enabling users to send photographic postcards to others via iPhone and Android devices.

Description

Update

Hipster is creating a real-time, visual public record of the world’s locations.

Using their iPhones and Android devices, people share where they are and what they are doing by sending their friends a photographic postcard. The postcards become permanently attached to the locations they were sent from, and are forever accessible to all those who come later.

Based in SOMA, San Francisco, and founded in 2010 by Doug Ludlow, Ethan Czahor, and Steffen Hoffman.
