Never leave the house blindly again: answering life’s big and little questions with uCiC photo app

by Conrad Egusa @ Publicize – Startup PR Company

  Why is uCiC so amazing ? We have all been there. You spend ages preparing a picnic and squeezing onto public transport only to arrive at your favourite city park and find it mobbed, with no space left for your smoked salmon sandwiches and chilled chardonnay. Or you pressure your friends out into the rain to hit a new nightlife hotspot, only to walk into an empty strobe lit room with a bored looking bar-staff to keep you company. How many times have you said, “If I had known it would be like this, I would have stayed at home”? Toronto-based entrepreneur Sukhsagar Singh and former NASA space engineer Harleen Kaur created a digital “magic looking glass” to save you this time and frustration with their new information and video/photo sharing app, uCiC (You See I See). The mobile app allows information seekers to select a user anywhere in the world and ask a question, receiving a video or photo in response. Users can search by ZIP code, a famous landmark or attraction, and view all uCiC users in the area. The app now connects people in 120 countries, giving users the ability to target individuals active in the […]
