Minus is a fun new way to share photos and chat with people nearby. Join the live photo stream around you in real-time. Look around and interact with the people and world around you and make new friends! We are the location based photo sharing and chat app connecting you with those physically around you.
Founded by Carl and John in September of 2010, Minus started with a mission to simplify the way people share photos around the web. Today, we are continuing with our pursuit to simplify sharing on the Android and iOS platform by helping users share and connect with the people nearby.
Our goal is to create a world-class product and experience for our users and the business model will follow. We can see many ways Minus can monetize itself.
Minus is venture funded by IDG Capital Partners, a global network of venture capital funds with a portfolio of over 220 companies built over the last 15 years.
Other users can’t pinpoint your exact location and we display only the approximate distance . Unlike other location apps, Minus DOES NOT run in the background to update your location and drain battery life. Your location is only updated when you open the app.
You should only be notified when a Minus user messages you.
Minus uses the latest Cloud computing technologies. We're fully deployed on Amazon's EC2 and S3 Cloud storage.
The easiest way to help is to invite your friends and spread the word and share Minus! Share new stuff, tell your friends, your family, your mailman, or anyone else about Minus! Post and share on forums, blogs, Reddit, Digg, Facebook, YouTube, or anywhere. Just get the word out and have fun with Minus!
