Faces Only: Kong Is a Photo-sharing App That Proves 2015 Is the Year of the Selfie
From media design agency Path Studios comes the latest revolutionary app in selfie technology, Kong. It’s a photo-sharing online world that’s solely for broadcasting selfies—animated selfies, that is.
Kong allows you to snap quick clips using the front-facing camera on your mobile device. You can set text, emojis, and filters to be applied to the selfie once it’s recorded, and then can share your GIF creation to your Kong network, save it as a video in your camera roll, or share it on other social media platforms. You can also utilize custom or preset hashtags to create personalized channels. (Word to the #badhair and #duckface threads.)
We all have those friends who like posing for the camera a little too much, and Kong feels you. The app automatically filters your feed so only one user’s content can be viewed at any given time, so you’ll never have more than one of your friends’ faces in the Brady Bunch-style selfie feed.
Kong just hit the virtual shelves of the iTunes and Android app stores, so you can still be the token tech trendsetter in your friend group. There’s even an Apple Watch app rolling out soon, which will give users the ability to scroll through friends’ GIF selfies on the wrist—welcome to 2015, everybody.
