Streamzoo shutting down

Streamzoo was one of the better alternatives to Instagram, but tonight they've announced that they're shutting down effective March 21. Here's what the announcement page says:

Streamzoo is shutting down, with all services stopping on March 21, 2014. It is with great sadness that we must make this announcement.

Streamzoo got its start in 2011 with a beautiful sunset. How great would it be to easily share this view—this moment—with others? So we aimed to create a place where people can gather and share their own moments, both publicly and in private among trusted friends. And we are proud of what we've built: from the tight-knit community we've fostered to the awesome tools in our mobile apps, giving full control over the photographic vision to you, our beloved users.

And we want to thank you—our users—for making Streamzoo what it is, a place where like-minded folks gathered to share beautiful images, teach others how to do the same, and grow as photographers. You will always have a place in our hearts.

Here's how to save any photos that you've shared on Streamzoo:

  1. Log in to your account at
  2. Go to your Profile (at top, second button from the left).
  3. Switch to Feed View (upper right corner of Uploads)
  4. Scroll down to find the photo(s) you want to keep.
  5. Right-click on the photo and "Save Image As..."

Our team thanks all of you from the bottom of our hearts. You will be missed.

A couple of things that I liked about Streamzoo compared with the alternatives:

  1. Being able to follow hashtags as well as following people.
  2. Being able to use the app on Android devices that don't have cameras; mostly I browsed my feed, and my tablet has a bigger screen than my mobile phone.

I think what I'll miss most are the photos by other people that I've flagged as "liked." There's some really interesting work in there.
