SA Based Startup Launches Social Media App And Boycotts "Photoshop"
[USPRwire, Tue Oct 25 2016] TGIF Zone has taken a bold step by launching its new mobile social media application TGIF for Android and IOS. TGIF “Thank God It’s Friday” is an application that allows users to share their images with their followers with a small twist, once a picture has been taken or uploaded, it is blurred and cannot be altered in any way only allowing the user to choose whether or not they would like to share it with their followers.
Some may think that something that you cannot alter to your liking is simply not ideal for such an application, especially one that doesn’t allow you to see them unless you use a “selfie camera”. TGIF Zone Co-Founder Panashe Muzamhindo has clearly stated why he believes this is the key feature that will separate it from the rest and give it an edge.
“When you look at it, social media has created an unrealistic ideal image for everyone,” said Panashe. “See, whether you’re a stay at home mom or a gym coach, an industry standard has been set to tell you exactly how you should look which has been exaggerated by the ability to enhance these images. There was a time when a moment could be shared and appreciated in its raw state with all its imperfections; that is what we strive for.”
TGIF is available on the App Store and Google Play for free.
