'Hyper' is a social photo-sharing app that helps users connect with like-minded individuals. As evident from the success of Instagram, there is a strong demand for social spaces where users can share photos with one another. This app provides a new platform for helping like-minded individuals connect through images.

Hyper is a free app that allows users to share photos and connect with other individuals in their immediate area. The app works by using hashtags and geotags to help users in the same location discover new activities and venues. Unlike Instagram, the app has a voting feature so that users can get feedback on a new hairstyle or an up-and-coming restaurant. Another feature that makes the app unique is that users can choose to remain anonymous if they are simply looking for a platform for sharing their thoughts and ideas.

The social photo-sharing app is ideal for Millennials and Gen X consumers who are used to expressing themselves online through images.
