Glass is a brand new photographer focused iOS Photo Sharing App. Although, as it is subscriber supported the developers are currently inviting members to join ‘as they continue to scale’. The founders Tom Watson, previously a Product Designer at Facebook (2009-2013) as well as Pinterest (2013-2018) and Stefan Borsje previously from Framer, have not crowd funded or attempted to achieve any funding for this app. The benefits of this includes the ability to forgo certain compromises including advertising, engagement algorithms and pivots to video. However, this leaves a deficit to their developmental efforts and therefore their subscription models look like $4.99 a month, $49 a year or, at launch, $29.99 a year with a free 14-day trial available to new users.
Speaking with Om, Watson explains that Glass is ‘…for photographers — amateur or professional. That can be anything from someone just starting with their iPhone or someone with tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment. We believe great photography can come from anywhere and anyone. We hope to build a community for all levels of photographers to learn, grow, and generally nerd out about photography‘.
