Looxie is an app to request photos from people all over the world
Looxie is an interesting app that was released back in 2016. It allows you to request photos from people in specific locations. Curious about what it looks like in Iceland right now? Or maybe you’re just wondering how many people are at the local bar. Open the Looxie app and find a person, request a photo, and wait for the reply. You can also browse photos that have been taken around the world and place yourself on the map to receive requests.
The key to Looxie is people can only send new photos. When someone requests a photo the person has to actually take a photo with their camera to send it. Gallery uploads are not allowed. This means you’re always getting a fresh look at what the other person is seeing. This can be useful for local events or just sight-seeing from afar. The app recently received a major overhaul and it looks great. Anyone who registers for a Looxie account before August 9th will get the premium features for free.
