OKDOTHIS Leaps Into 2.0 With Updated UI, Better Discovery Features and More

OKDOTHIS_3

Last November, photographer Jeremy Cowart revealed OKDOTHIS, a two-and-a-half year collaboration between himself and the development team at Aloompa to create an app that inspired creatives to be… well… more creative.

And now, in the name of continuing to keep the creative community on their toes, OKDOTHIS has announced a 2.0 revamp of what is essentially its entire platform. The app, website and overall structure of the platform is much more streamlined now, featuring a more unified and easy-to-use design across the board.

When OKDOTHIS first came out, it established itself as a hybrid of a social network and source of inspiration, and this unique combination quickly amassed a cult-like following from many creatives. Have creative block? OKDOTHIS. Bored and need a photo idea? OKDOTHIS. You get the picture… and the pun.

The new release nurtures this already vibrant community by offering them a better platform and implementing many of the changes and fixes they’ve been asking for.

By adding a better curated Discover page, DO of the Day, a Trending Feed and a completely revamped search system, the exploration options are as vast as the type of creatives using the apps. It is, as Cowart puts it, “a community that encourages growth and inspires us all to DO more,” and this update simply makes that community more accessible, searchable and usable.

On top of the updated discovery setup, more editing tools are being added to the mix. Gone are the days of only sharing 1×1 ratio photos. OKDOTHIS now supports 7 different ratios, from 4×5 to 2×3. Also included in the update is a better tool for more precise “granular tone editing” controls. These include your standard editing features such as contrast, saturation, sharpness, grain, etc.

It seems to be a solid update to an already strong app and community. Whether a current user of the platform or someone looking to jump in for the first time, we’d encourage you to OKDO it. Head on over and give it a download in the iOS App Store for the whopping price of “on the house.”

    one of my favorite apps, and this is a gorgeous update!

    I really enjoy okaydothis, it’s a pretty fun timekiller. The only downside is that you begin to see the same people’s stuff all the time, because there just isn’t a huge audience at the moment. I hope this update helps them expand their userbase.

  • Jeremy Madore

    And *still* not on Android.

  • Pete

    It’s because people on Android are less creative.

    /sarcasm

  • Pete

    Or they could expand to Android

    creative isn’t a noun.

  • Edgar Allan Bro

    Or because expecting an ios production house still working on refining their product to port it to an entirely different operating system and an ecosystem with a massively fragmented hardware base is just silly.

    Both Merriam-Webster and Oxford disagree with you, Internet Guy.

    The problem might be to convince people to use it. The whole thing isn’t much different from the daily/weekly/monthly photo challenges on EyeEm, G+, Instagram, Flickr and many other platforms but there are much more people. So why should people use this new one?
    It’s the old problem that every new service has to deal with when their concept isn’t something new.

  • Leif Sikorski

    Just use an alternative – there are so many. EyeEm for example has regular “Missions” in cooperation with Getty and some other agencies.

    Sure, my bad:
    – As an adjective: 1st known use in 1678, formal English
    – As a “noun”: 1st used in 1962, informal English

    in other words hijacked as noun first by the hippies and now by the hipsters (their time shifted soul mates) in an attempt to crash the party door of actual artists (which are starting to be referred to as “creatives” as well….).

    Womp, womp… I’ve used it twice. Ok, I just didn’t do it.

  • http://jtruephotography.com/ Jeremiah True

    I beg to differ, working the advertising field I sit on a floor of those nouns and count myself as one of them.

  • Tzctplus -

    Your industry hijacked it :-) :

    – As an adjective: 1st known use in 1678, formal English
    – As a “noun”: 1st used in 1962, informal English
