Piictu is a free photo-sharing mobile app founded in 2011 by Jonathan Slimak and based in New York City.[1] Users are encouraged to capture an image on their phone and share it to a subject-approapriate album or "stream".[2] All streams are public, and users are encouraged to reply to a subject with topical pictures creating a photo-conversation.[3] Topics for Piictu streams range widely and feature challenges, games, memes, tutorials, and status updates.[4]


Piictu development began in New York City in late November 2010.[5]

In July 2011, Piictu got accepted into the TechStars accelerator program.[6]

In March 2013, Piictu started to work on secondary projects; like a collaboration with Kandu a mobile software creation tool by Betaworks.
