TWorlds for iPhone Connects Strangers Around the World by Sharing Intimate Moments

What if there was someone doing the exact same thing as you at the exact same time? Tworlds is an app that attempts to foster intimacy between strangers through
anonymity by sharing a single thought through the lens of your camera.
Similar to social media sharing platforms such as Instagram, Tworlds allows users to share photos of themselves and their everyday lives. However, unlike Instagram, Tworlds breaks away from the curated online environment and its social pressure for ‘likes’ and ‘follows' by deconstructing the photo-sharing concept down to the simplest form- those real and unpolished moments.

Tworld has 26 predetermined theme like #coffee, #selfie, or #smile. When you download Tworlds, you choose a hashtag and that hashtag will facilitate a connection between you and someone else prompting that same hashtag. Once you snap a picture, your photo is instantly connected to an anonymous user image resulting in a photo collage of sorts. Only the persons city and country is ever revealed to you. You can not message this person, tag them or establish any form of communication.  You can’t use images that are in your phone already . The app forces you to peel away the falsehood of filters, perfect lighting and staged poses. You can only use the app to shoot in the moment. The only camera options you get are the flash or focus.

I found the app to be a lot of fun to play with. I posted a few photos with different themes to see who I got paired up with. Interestingly enough, I was even able to get some product placement in the shots which I was only trying to see if there could possibly be a real way for users to monetize their content on the app. I think that since the photos are paired so randomly, it would be extremely difficult. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of users on the app either. When I was using the apps discovery scroll, I saw several of the same paired images over the course of a few days. If you are looking for a break way from the popularity frenzy of Instagram and just want to share your thoughts and intimate moments in a clean and pure way, Towards is worth the space on your phone. It’s a nice escape back to reality where you can see and relate to real people. Worlds is kind of like a message in a bottle thrown out to sea.
You can download Tworlds (iOS) for free.
