OKDOTHIS: An App for Photographers that Never Lets You Run Out of Ideas

One of the more difficult things about being a creative is having to come up with fresh ideas on a daily basis, constantly challenging yourself and expanding your horizons. These things aren’t always easy and it’s not uncommon to find yourself in a creative rut with (seemingly) nowhere to turn.

Thankfully, there’s a new app in town that is designed to help you out of those kinds of situations while simultaneously keeping you on your game even when you are inspired. It’s called OKDOTHIS.

OKDOTHIS is all about “bring[ing] idea sharing to your camera screen.” It’s an ‘idea database’ that is created by the community that uses it. Search through “DOs” or create some of your own and inspire others, however you choose to use it, OKDOTHIS is a great resource and maybe even a fun game that the whole photographic community can play amongst themselves.

DOs are split up by categories to make it easier to browse or search for the kind of idea you’re looking for. And, of course, you can also find and follow users who you find inspire you most often, while accruing followers of your own by coming up with awesome DOs and sharing creative photos in response to those DOs you choose to attempt.

As with all community driven apps, OKDOTHIS will only be as good as the photographers that use it. So far, it’s been out less than a week and already it’s the talk of the town, photographically speaking, so we have a feeling this is gonna be a big one.

To jump on board yourself, check out their website and learn more or head over to the iTunes App Store (sorry folks, no news of an Android version just yet) and pick up your own copy for $2. And once you do, be sure to share your experience with us in the comments down below!
