What is Shotnote?

Shotnote is a unique photo sharing app with a simple location-based sharing and discovery concept:

With Shotnote you can take a photo or video and leave it for your friends to discover at a specific location. Your friends will receive your Shot anytime they end up close enough to that location, and are then notified immediately via push notification.
There’s no need to have the phone or app open to discover a Shot!

Leave a trail of love letters for your sweetheart, let your friends know when they walk by a great restaurant, or simply let your friends discover that funny face you made the other day across the street!


How does Shotnote work?


Take a photo, tag it to a specific location and leave it for your friends to discover!

After you take a Shot and before you select the friends you leave this Shot to, you optionally can

 add a note.
 choose another location than your current one where you leave your Shot.
 change the discovery radius, the area around the Shot in which your friends receive it.
 change the notification mode: You can choose to leave your Shot as a surprise to keep your friends in the dark until they end up nearby, or you send them a teaser to let them know that there’s a Shot to discover at the specific location.



Your friends will discover the Shot only once they are close enough to the Shot’s location!

Your friends…

… may get a teaser with the direction and distance from Shot discovery (in case you choose not to surprise your friend).
… in any case will receive a push notification once they get to the location and discover the Shot.
… can forward the Shot to their friends.

There is no time limit for a Shot to be discovered by your friends. But you can cancel the delivery of the Shot at any given time before it’s discovered!


Your privacy is critically important to us. Therefore, we don’t story your locations. Also we do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
