This document holds the purpose of portraying the progress of the Final Year Project PhotoPrompt. Found in the appendix of this document are the previous required documents that have been submitted along with updated information in the main document. The mobile market is constantly growing and smartphones are now standard in peoples lives. Facebook claims to have 350 million photos shared a day on it’s platform not including Instagram uploads. Many of those are reposts, or self pictures and hold no real meaning. The idea behind PhotoPrompt is simple. Log in, check your prompt and go take the best picture you can of that prompt. Other users are the deciding factor of what is good or not. There is no metric or formula for a good photo, just practice. Using PhotoPrompt will provide you with inspiration to take photos that you normally wouldn’t take and fill the world up with photos that actually mean something all while becoming a better photographer. I chose a hybrid web application because it allows anyone with a browser to access the site and engage in the functionality. No matter your operating system you will be able to use PhotoPrompt as long as you have access to a web browser.
The prompts themselves will range from a variety of things such as nature, buildings, traffic etc..all things that most people will be able to find. I think it will be interesting to see how so many people interpret the same topic and seeing the difference in photography style will urge people on to trying new methods or solutions to photography problems. With people taking photographs on smartphones everyday, and apps such as Instagram and Snapchat now engrained as parts of peoples daily routine, I think that mobile users with an interest in photography will be very interested in PhotoPrompt.
