Looking to capitalize on all of the photo-taking and sharing done with smartphone apps like Instagram, iCoolHunt is a new app that gives users a directive for their photo-sharing: find something cool. Users can create categories of trends, like “Plaids in Fashion,” or “Urban Picnic.” Then, they and others can add applicable finds, with each gaining “cool” points as others “like” their findings. Theoretically, if they trusted the users’ eyes, anyone could look to the app for future ideas. Images are searchable by location, and you can follow users, or just see what’s trending.
