Tiiny is an app for sharing small photos and looping videos that disappear after 24 hours. The app was created by North Technologies — a company co-founded by Kevin Rose and Marc Hemeon — and is the first release from them. Rose posted a blog about the release over at Medium.
The idea for Tiiny came about last year when I was browsing through posts on Instagram’s tag screen. The grid of images allowed me to consume quite a bit more content than a traditional ‘large picture’ stream. The quick consumption nature of that page got me thinking: what if the entire app were small pictures that couldn’t be enlarged? Would it reduce the anxiety when taking a picture or video, eliminating the “how do l look?” issues with larger photos? Are more megapixels actually a good thing?
Tiiny is currently available on iOS.
