Two months ago, we shared with you Dehaze, an online tool that curates a list of hashtags specifically for the type of photo and location you shot it at. Now, 22 year-old developer Nick Smith has updated Dehaze and subsequently rebranded it as Focalmark, complete with a new app for both iOS and Android.
Identical to the web app, which is still up and running, Focalmark has an app for both iOS and Android that makes it easier to gather a collection of hashtags to use on popular photo sharing sites like Instagram and Flickr. Rather than having to copy and paste them from your computer to your phone, you can now copy the list of curated hashtags directly from the Focalmark app.
Beyond adding 50 more locations within the app, Smith has also promised more frequent updates of the hashtags used by Focalmark. Specifically, he says more hashtags will be added on a weekly basis, which should help keep you up to date.
Growing a following on photo sharing sites is not easy, but one of the most proven methods of getting reactions and follows is to get your photos out there in the search engines via hashtags. Focalmark hopes to simplify that process and the new mobile apps should help you get the job done in even fewer steps than before.
