Tiiny, An App for Sharing Small Photos and Looping Videos That Disappear After 24 Hours

Tiiny Tiiny

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.
