Congrats on the launch! Other than the album feature, how does HeyChat really differentiate from photo-sharing behemoth Instagram?

@katoree so great question! If you watch the video it will explain in visual detail. But our difference is that we are allowing users to create a storyboard of their life and everything is in real-time! No old post from the photo gallery! Text is limited up to 160 characters. Also, we're not focused on making photos prettier and only using us for special moments! It's about people who want to share what they are doing day-to-day with their friends etc. You do not have to scroll and scroll to see your friends updates as much as an Instagram or their bigger brother Facebook! We are a tool to help create a story about who you are everyday. So that you can find interesting things about the people in the real-world. Instagram is a great product but focused on a different mission! It's like the comparison of Facebook to twitter or yahoo to google for us! Thanks for interest!

@katoree I had the same question :) , I felt like Instagram pitched in different view or use case. Anyway gonna try the app now!

@rahulmfg well yes. Like social networks are all social networks as linkedin shares similar values as Facebook sharing post and adding friends. Or Twitter to Facebook one allowing long post and the other limiting. So for us of course it will be comparison and that's totally fine. We both are images based, square image, filter so in that light we are close. But that's it. People use it kinda of like they use instagram and snapchat together! From what I see people sharing! It's interesting! But if you are in code you know what wire framing is? It's close to storyboarding! What we are saying is imagine if we can do that with people's lives! That's it nothing more for now ;)

Hi, congrats! Do you know DormChat? It's not the same project at all, but the icon + the name are so close. Same team behind those two apps?

@moofaces yes, just thought it was funny :) But you right, the two apps are absolutely different.
