If you like taking and sharing photos, you need to stop what you’re doing immediately and download GuruShots. It’s an app for Android (there’s an iPhone app in the works, but it’s not out yet) dubbed “The World’s Greatest Photography Game“. And somehow, I never heard of this app until earlier tonight; now, I’m addicted.
How does GuruShots work?
GuruShots is community-based and features themed photo challenges in which users submit their own original work. The photo that receives the most votes from other community members in a particular challenge wins.
You are encouraged to vote on others’ photos, and in fact, you’re even rewarded for doing so. Voting on a photo – a simple tap is all it takes – actually gives your own photos more exposure. When your Exposure Bonus meter is full, more eyes land on your shots, thus increasing your chances of getting votes.
When you first download and install the app, you have to create an account, and then upload four photos. These four shots go into the “Newbie of the Month” challenge – your welcome to the community if you will. From there, you’re free to enter any other open challenges you want.
GuruShots is a photography app that connects, inspires and educates photo enthusiasts around the world. It’s an amazingly fun way to showcase your photos.
The best photo app to get exposure for your photos, instant feedback and votes from millions of photographers, win a daily photo contest and take your photography skills to the next level.

Win, win, right?
GuruShots is free to download but does contain in-app purchases. You can buy boosts (get more views), photo swaps (swap a photo you’ve submitted to a challenge for another photo), and autofills (automatically fill Exposure Boost meter without voting).
There’s also a browser version available on the GuruShots website.
Refer friends for bonuses
Referring friends gives you bonuses, like boosts, photo swaps, and autofills, without having to pay for them. This is my chance to shamelessly plug my own referral link. Thank you kindly in advance, should you decide to use it.
