Are you an aspiring developer looking to get your idea turned into a reality? That is the basis behind Dandy. This community driven, crowd sharing platform held a 60 Day Challenge back in November. The winner of this challenge would then see their idea designed, funded, and developed into an application for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry 10.

One of the judges on the panel was none other than Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations at BlackBerry. Philip Kirkbride, the co-founder of Diaree, was also contracted to bring it to the BlackBerry platform. I am pleased to announced that the winning concept was Picture This, a picture scavenger hunt app, conceived by an engineering student at Columbia University by the name of Niger Little-Poole.

Now who doesn't love a good old fashioned scavenger hunt? It gives users the opportunity to participate in daily photo challenges and earn badges while doing so. With its real-time competition and user interaction, Picture This not only allows you to interact with friends, family and followers but with individuals from all over. Whether you are participating in the hunt of the day or adding to the existing challenges, it's entertaining, social, and a great way to create fun and memorable images. 

Features

  • Browse fresh daily and ongoing photo challenges like 'Office Whiteboard Doodle, 'Hipster of the Year', or "View out the window'
  • Capture photos directly through the app (no camera roll photos to even the playing field)
  • Earn from an expanding list of badges like 'Fan Favorite', 'Staff Pick', 'Most Comments', and 'First to Submit'
  • Submit your own creative ideas to be featured as future challenges
  • Leave comments, vote, and share your favorite photo submissions
  • Share challenges on your favorite social networks get your friends and family in on the fun

Sharing and capturing photos is quick and easy as well as uploading to their network. All that is required is creating a profile either by registering an email address or linking to your Facebook account. 

Collaboration was key to the final product and the result is a well-built application with a pleasant interface. I for one found this to be a very interesting process and have to congratulate the Dandy team and the winner. Picture This is free to download and compatible with all BlackBerry 10 handsets.

I can't even create an account, allows me to input all my info and then the "ok" button does nothing. Hmm

Yeah me too,pressed on the dollar bill and it told me I could be the first to post a picture,then nothing.I was so exicited,HA HA!!

Unable to create account
It either gives me a time-out error or just sits there and does nothing when I press 'ok'. That is email signup.
Quality app otherwise!

Hey Philip here I developed the BlackBerry version of PictureThis.

I'm trying to replicate your error on my Z10(10.2) and Q10(10.1) and can't seem to. Are you trying to register with Facebook or Email?

andrew1479

I tried to sign up using email. Z10 on 10.2

It just keeps loading? Try using the email/password to login in. Looking into this.

Ok I just talked to Taylor the developer working on the server. He said it was a problem on his end and it's now been fixed.

Facebook should be working but we are doing some extra tests right now.

Can confirm that email signup now works, account created and signed in

I'm trying to connect to Facebook and it does that just fine but seems to hang at the 'gathering information' stage

Can you confirm that your account was created when using FB login?

andrew1479

Email sign up worked now, well done fixing the problem quickly.

Looking into this now. Can you try submitting a photo again and tell me if you've been logged in and the login page just didn't close?

kirkins

Just made a new Facebook account to try signing up again and I'm seeing the problem. Bare with me I'm working with our server side developer to fix this.

SirJes

I created an email account again, and I'm in :)

This may be a bug, but when I got to notifications and I go to the selfie challenge and submitted a photo it posted it to the money challenge instead : /, so I had to redo it by going to the selfie challenge from the challenges page itself, I can't delete the selfie pic from the money challenge section though.

What makes it funnier is that he's actually in first place for the wrong challenge

Maal628

Yes I noticed the same issue. I submitted two pics for challenges and they both ended up in different ones.

Downloaded and installed with no troubles. This looks like it might be fun.

Any plans to be able to create challenges amongst a private friend group? That would be awesome!

Is this BlackBerry exclusive or is it on the other platforms as well? This looks like it could get to be a really big deal!

It's out on BlackBerry 10, iOS, and coming to Android
