Renowned Indian Artist launches a disruptive new social app, Flipsicle, in India. Flipsicle rethinks the role of creativity in technology

WHAT?
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFlipsicle is a new Social Photo App
Ask in Words – Answer with photos
Flipsicle lets you see the World through many eyes

Unlike Facebook: Where the photo is about what happened, the party I went to, the people I hangout with etc.

Unlike Instagram: Where the photo is about beauty

Flipsicle is using the photo to create a new visual language where you use the photo as a chat/ form of conversation.

HOW?
It’s a simple game
Ask something in words
And get photo answers from people around the World.
This is not only addictive, but teaches creativity and empathy
Unlike most apps that make you feel lonelier, Flipsicle converts free time into relationship value – you get to know someone better when you see the world through their eyes

WHO?
Founders — Raghava KK and Netra Srikanth

Raghava KK– artist/mentor/ entrepreneur

How does it work?
Users ask quests, like “”What’s in front of you now?,” What is happiness to you?” or “Who is your hero?,” and people from all over answer and share their points of view through photos.

“After 13 years of living with my wife, I was still able to learn something new about her by participating in Flipsicle.” Says Raghava KK, co-founder of Flipsicle.
