Blurr settle's for nothing but excellence, and that starts with our people.

What We're Building

An app that allows people to take and instantly share photos with others directly around them. We solve the problem of getting instant access to memorable photos taken around you. The app only connects people at the same place, at the same time, and takes people’s photo taking from private to public in very small areas of space.

Put yourself at that college frat party, or sports game, or wedding. You open the app, press "Start Blurr" and your Blurr is live.

From then, every single picture taken by anyone else on the app within the radius (with a one hour backlog included) you set will populate on your live feed, thus. There aren’t profiles or friends, and we give you the ability to view any picture appearing on your feed, save it down to your phone permanently or share straight to Facebook or Instagram. Your Blurr will end if you leave the radius, or choose to ‘End Blurr’. Once ended, you have 24 hours to go back and view your Blurr before the pictures disappear.
