Pingster is a revolutionary photosharing GPS based mobile app that connects your mobile device to nearby geo-tagged photos uploaded by other users. Pingster is like Instagram fused with Google Maps. It is like we put both of these amazing apps together into a cocktail shaker and created an entirely new product that offers a visual experience with discovery.
"Wow that image looks amazing! I want to go there." Whether you are in your neighborhood at home or looking up activities on vacation, Pingster connects you to the photos you love AND the locations of those photos.
In the days of heightened privacy awareness, Pingster does not record nor share your personal location but rather only displays nearby geo-tagged media to your cell phone. Pingster® stores an image with its location in the Pingster cloud® and never a user' s location. After you take the picture and walk away you are no longer associated with that location.
CEO Nancy Shone has worn many hats in her life: wife, mother, engineer, business development manager, video production specialist, and entrepreneur. Nancy has taken a little something from every career and built upon it. Today, she is the owner of her own multi-media, digital marketing firm and now the CEO and founder of Pingster.
Her experience in video production and years of extensive background in design were the cornerstones from which the concept of Pingster developed. Always looking for a better idea and easier way of doing things, Nancy took her frustrations with Instagram and Facebook and began to develop the nascent concept of Pingster. She wanted an app that allowed everyone their moment in the sun, and leveled the playing field when it came to social channel photo-sharing. According to Nancy, “With Pingster everyone becomes an influencer.”
Nancy lives with her husband, three children, and one rather loud and chatty Siamese that thinks it’s a dog.
