I am a sucker for photography apps, there is something alluring about being able to take, edit and upload perfect photos on the go. What if there was a way to not only capture these moments and perfect them, but to post them in a community where they could also be purchased, in turn, making you some mullah? Then you need to check out Clashot, free in the App Store.
Clashot is an application that allows users to not only capture photos, but upload them to an entire community of photos and photographers where they can then be commented on, rated and even make you some money! We all take pictures anyway, why not capitalize on our images?
After creating a login and agreeing to the terms, I was ready to roll. The interface is similar to that of Instagram, you follow users whose photos you like, gain followers based on your uploads and have images in a gallery. The biggest difference I noticed right away was that images were uploaded into separate albums or galleries, known by Clashot as “reports” rather than albums. Users can create multiple reports of images and classify them in a variety of ways, from titles and tags, to descriptions and categories. The more information users provide for their reports and images, the more likely they will be seen by the Clashot community. Items uploaded to Clashot are able to be shared to Facebook and Twitter if users elect to link their accounts, further promoting their images and presence on Clashot.
As with most photo networking sites, the images hosted in the community are from all over the world, which makes being a part of the Clashot community all the more exciting. Sharing images things we see every day can be exciting to others, basic surroundings may be marvels for someone halfway around the globe. The whole idea of photo networking is being able to see through the eyes of someone else and Clashot assists in connecting users with the world. Like reports, comment on images and rate what you see, the application allows for a ton of interactivity between users.
Overall Clashot is an incredibly interactive application that allows users to not only browse images and connect with the Clashot community, but make some money doing it. If you love Instagram, sharing images and networking through photos, Clashot may be the app for you, and don’t forget the extra monetary incentive for being part of the Clashot community!
