There are many photo apps, but only Caption8 turns photo sharing into a game to enjoy with friends.

MailPix.com, the new photo-printing site, has released Caption8, a new social photo game on the Apple App Store and the Android Market. Users can add funny captions to their own photos or the photos of their friends, and share them. Two styles are built-in the app, Motivational Poster and Speech Bubble, with more available through an in-app purchase or by earning coins.
“Caption8 is a fun way to share photos,” says Fred H. Lerner, president and CEO. “There are many photo apps, but only Caption8 turns photo sharing into a game to enjoy with friends.”
Players can select a photo, apply style, and then share the new creation with friends. They will receive a notification but will not be able to see the caption until all of the players have responded with a caption. At that point, your friend will be able to page through the response captions and choose a winner - all without knowing whose response is whose.
Caption8 is was designed by veteran web application developer Andrew Christensen, who co-founded an online photo management and sharing startup. After the recent successes with mobile games, he designed a game that could be played with photos and with photo caption memes. The goal was to create a way to engage multiple friends by sharing photos and inspiring creativity.
