Digital photography will change due to the Flag app. The app allows users to print photos from their iPhone for free if they are willing to place advertisements on the back of each print.

The flag app challenge is its infrastructure. Samuel Agboola says that "Our intention is to offer all the photo printing services you can get from any of the companies that exist today, we just intend to do it at a higher quality." This means that the app would need a developed photo finishing system ready for the 21st century. The company has said this would include "museum quality printers, German 220 gram photo paper, laser cutters and robots with carbon fiber arms."

The reason why it’s a challenge is because they want to make it so that the app wouldn’t be easy to clone by competitors and the quality is exactly what customers are looking for. We hope to see this app running very soon.
