There’s no doubt that iPhoneography is a full-blown “thing.” There are countless blogs dedicated to the activity, endless amounts of accessories and apps like Instagram have taken it to a whole other level. I myself am considering switching to an iPhone after my contract is up with Verizon and the iPhone 5 is released. A lot of it has to do with the camera and apps, but mostly it has to deal with the overall eco-system that Apple has setup. It’s unrivaled.
So what about Androidography? or Smartphoneography in general? I don’t know. There really isn’t much of a community, though maybe the Android release of Instagram will change that. The screenshot above is kind of telling about how little activity there is out there. In the past ~5 months I’ve managed to get on page 4 of Google for “Androidography” (page 8 on Yahoo!) without much overall effort, especially in terms of optimization.
I’ve started a few blogs in the past without much luck and abandoned them fairly quickly, this one however, seems to have caught on a little, mostly in the androidography realm. I’m getting 500+ visits a month and already have ~2,000 for the month of March which is pretty cool. I’m not really sure where things will go in the future, but it would be fun if I could help to form some sort of community for Android / Smartphone -ography in general.
So, for those of you that visit, what do you think? What kind of features would a site need to really help drive the community? I think some sort of reader-submission thing is needed for sure. Who knows, though, maybe Instagram (or some other app) will launch on Android in a month or so and this blog will become completely irrelevant in the overall “scene.” Or maybe, I can make an impact…
Looking at a hotel from inside of Hotel Europa on the other side of Columbus Street in San Francisco, CA.
Honestly, I just really like the way the colors and composition turned out on this one. If you look close enough you can see 3 guys fishing at the end of the dock and another pushing a stroller on the other side.
My Droid X finally kicked it and no longer starts up. It lasted 6+ months with a broken screen and whack battery though, so that’s pretty good. In the meantime I got my self an OG Droid which has a much slower processor, weaker camera and crashes my applications all the time — but I still managed to grab this picture.
So now I’m looking to upgrade to something brand new hella soon here as there are a bunch of new phones coming out. Right now it’s looking like I might wait until the iPhone 5 releases but there are a few Android devices I like, too.
