Rando- Ustwo - The creators of whale trail - FREE







I quite like this concept.
You take a photo. And send it to a random person across the world, they receive the photo, and then in return you receive a photo from another random.
It tells you the approximate location of where the photo came from, so you can collect photos from all around the world, you can't communicate with any photo senders, other than to smile or frown at their pictures.
It's a cool concept. Hopefully they add a few more features later on to give users more of an incentive to send nice photos..
I've received about 15 photos, and 5 of them were just blanks/the ground/etc.. When people pay 99c for this app they probably take it more seriously. But since its free today, I guess that's why there's a fair but of junk going round.. Should ease up when it goes back to paid. No nudity yet though, which is a good sign.

It'd be nice if they added a hall of fame and featured a bunch of photos each week.
Also, it'd be nice if we could take photos inside the app when we don't have wifi/3G and send them later on.
I understand why you can't access camera roll, and think that's a nice feature to keep the photos real, but I wish we did have an option to take a bunch of images whilst out of signal, because those are where the most beautiful views often are..
A basic profile could also be good, as an optional feature we could turn on.. Where we could showcase a few of our favourite sent, and received images, like a gallery, but yet still stay anonymous, other than location.

Waiting on: Tengami, Heroki, Gelato mania 2, Feed me oil 2, Cut the rope 2

I wonder how naughty pictures are dealt with.

The concept is mildly interesting, but don't like how people *will* inevitably use it.
Random + anonymous = pornography

True.
It'll finally become something like "collect photos of naked people from all around the world".

Buut I've downloaded it anyway to see how it works.
