Monkey Island launches Drop


DropMonkey Island trio launched a new product today called Drop that’s aimed at the insatiable consumer market for photosharing.

The free iOS (7 and above) app is based on location, whereby users geo-tag photos and post them on a public map for others to discover and view.

“Sharing just got a lot more exclusive and local. Take a selfie or fun photo wherever you are and “drop” it on the map for others to discover. Let your friends know where it’s dropped – and the treasure hunt begins! drops can only be unlocked and viewed in the area where they were taken.

You can drop a pic whenever and wherever. So start leaving an impression around town for your friends and others to discover. Its all about connecting with people while they are standing in the exact same place you were when you took the photo. A new kind of shared experience that you can only get by using drop.”

A few dozen users have already made ~300 drops around the Twin Cities since the app went live yesterday.   The initial version will show media that’s been ‘dropped’ within a 250 ft radius, with future updates to include expandable parameters and an Android version — among other things.

“It’s already been a lot of fun and we’re excited to see who uses it and how they use it,” Co founder Josh Becerra says. Founded in 2007 by Becerra, Colin Hirdman and Zach Steven — MonkeyIsland is the parent brand for a number of products in pursuit, including: LocalTweeps, SMB Tweet, BuyTheChange, Zyngram and Tweepwise.
