The competition is over. Brandon Dove won.
At the intersection of the most popular social media trend (filtering and sharing photos), the ubiquity of smart phones (people leave their homes with keys, wallet, and you guessed it), and the web’s most popular content management platform (WordPress), lies a tiny, little, free mobile app called Pressgram.
It was an idea. Then it was a stealth weekend hobby. Then it was a kickstarter project. And now it’s a published and released app for iPhones.
But this isn’t just an Instagram clone. It’s not just another filtered photo app. Two things set it apart:
Easy & direct integration with your WordPress site or blog. It’s crazy simple to get your photos on your own site.
But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have all the normal features you like – like sharing with twitter and facebook. They’re there too.
Wait, there’s more…Win a free iPad mini!
We want today to be a huge launch
day weekend. We want everyone to download, install and sign up right away. So I’m adding a little incentive.
The rules are simple:
- Download and install the app.
- Come back here and post (in the comments) your username (so I can follow you)
- Tweet this out. (you’ll see the tweet before you send it)
- Take at least one photo with Pressgram
On Monday I’ll have my wife pick her favorite Pressgram photo and I’ll contact you to get your info so I can ship you the new iPad mini.
A couple of quick notes:
- You can take as many photos as you like. Once I follow you, I’ll have them all in my stream.
- You must do each part of the four steps. Missing one will disqualify you.
- The contest ends Sunday at midnight PST.
- Only 1 iPad mini will be given out. There will only be one winner. No second place.
- My wife likes books, baking, kids, and me. (probably in that order)
Did this contest just get more amazing? Yes. Yes it did!
Josh over at blogcelerator.com heard about the promotion and thought – what if people don’t have a site yet? Wouldn’t they want one – to host all those great photos?
So he’s offering the following:
- Free hosting for a year
- 1 Domain registration
- 3 email accounts
- AND a premium theme from themify.me
Now seriously folks, that’s just awesome. Now you have no excuse.
