Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
Tokyo startup Zkyuun Entertainment has launched an Android application for Japan's highly popular purikura-style photographs called Phoppy. The popularity of purikura, a type of photo booth found throughout Asia where people can take pictures, add effects and print stickers on the spot, has created a demand for a similar type of application for smartphones.
Zkyuun Entertainment’s new app allows photographs to be edited by adding frames or other cute decorations, making it the ideal application for users who like the charming purikura culture.
With Phoppy, users can take pictures and process them by adding any number of cute elements, then easily upload the photos to various SNS sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The application also contains a wide variety of stamps and other items for decoration, including the ability for users to take pictures of their friends and add cute or silly effects.
There are many people around the world that use the popular Instagram and Picplz applications on their smartphones. This goes for Japan as well as East Asia; however, according to Zkyuun Entertainment, many of them, especially young girls, don't consider these applications to be very cool. While Instagram can make the scenery in pictures more beautiful, it lacks the ability to make the subject of the picture cuter and more interesting, an important feature for young East Asian girls. To meet this demand, Zkyuun Entertainment has launched Phoppy.
