Toronto, Ontario (MMD Newswire) May 31, 2012 -- Smartphones and apps like Instagram have changed the way the world takes and shares photos. Canadian app developer Barrel Man Apps Inc. aims to encapsulate the iPhone photo-snapping generation in one image with today's launch of Revolution Mosaic in the App Store.
Revolution Mosaic will combine a total of 360,000 iPhone photos from around the world to create one single mosaic image to symbolize the mobile generation.
"In future generations, many iconic photos will change the world, and many of these photos will be captured on mobile phones," says Ian Tuason, Founder of Barrel Man Apps Inc. "Visionary photographers that I admire, well, they could be any one of us now. We all have this powerful tool in our pockets and it only takes a gentle tap to take a photo and share our perspective to the world. So let's turn that tap into a tidal wave. Let's make that first iconic image from our generation be a collection of all our perspectives joined together."
In the last two months leading up to today's launch, articles about the app have already been published in notable media outlets including Mashable ( http://mashable.com/2012/04/18/revolutionary-mosaic-app/ ) and The Next Web ( http://thenextweb.com/apps/2012/03/26/this-app-is-going-to-crowdsource-360000-iphone-photos-to-create-one-image/ ).
The media hype surrounding the Revolution Mosaic app has eventually allowed Barrel Man Apps Inc. to secure seed funding from European venture incubator, 99 Fahrenheit Ltd.
"We are very interested in ideas that can change the world, and we believe Revolution Mosaic has that kind of potential" says Luca Longobardi, Founder and CEO of 99 Fahrenheit.
Once 360,000 photos are uploaded to the Revolution Mosaic, Barrel Man Apps plans to transform the app into a platform of multiple mosaics. Mosaics can be created to raise social awareness or to unite cultures and charitable causes. Mosaics can even be created to document important events in the world, like the Summer Olympics or the World Cup.
