Pakistan is a land of opportunities and talented people. This verity has again been put to light by techrepreneurs of Eyedeus Labs, a startup created under a platform of Plan9, Technology incubator out of Lahore.

Every now and then, quite lot groups of dynamic young tech entrepreneurs come with innovative ideas congregating to invent mobile apps that are surely willing to change the way of doing business with the rest of the world.

This time, just a while ago, buzzing out internet and international media, young group of entrepreneur’s hard work got recognition by CNNN in visage of Groopic smartphone app that outshined tech environment.

Within just a short span of time and limited resources, Groopic has been developed by EyeDeus Lab’s team using patent pending technology and readily, just from its beginning, it grounded its sensation’s flag by getting coverage over international tech blogs like Gizmodo and TechCrunch.

Just to enlighten, Groopic is Smartphone app that has solved ever existed problem of including photographer in a picture in a group photo. This app caters best in itself enabling you to take a group picture and put yourself in it. So photographer won’t be out from picture anymore even without asking help from a stranger or to have a trivet.

Talking about this amazing app, Ali Rehan (CEO of Eyedeus Labs) told CNN about the aspect how internet is bringing an avid shift for most of all companies operating in Pakistan.

Have a look at the video:

Moreover, Groopic was previously selected for BlackBox connect summer 2013, a two week Silicon Valley immersion program designed for founders of startups. Definitely, it clearly embraced a feat by our developers for being one of the eight sponsored teams by Google.

Other than this credit, further Groopic app achievements are:

  • Won Best startup Award at Startup Weekend Lahore in February 2012
  • Earned Punjab Information Technology Board(PITB) Plan9 incubation
  • Got Runners up Award at [email protected] ICT Awards 2013
  • Featured by renowned and leading media property, Techcrunch.
  • Currently got prominent coverage by CNN media.

Another endearing aspect of this intriguing app is its now among the Top 10 Photo & Video Apps on the US AppStore. However, this smart app could be purchased for Apple devices for 0.99$.

Certainly, considering this app development, it could be concluded that developers are exploiting best potential to bring a vibrant revolution in tech environment and this mark has been attained to greater extent till now as Pakistani app developer community is growing at its pace and technology giants are in chase of our developers to pick up with their emerging apps.

But regrettably, apart from this whole sensation, it’s rather apparent that until attainment of recognition by foreign countries, our society, particularly local media are likely far behind to appreciate this budding talent entirely.

Obviously this act someway put a murky effect on creativity of folks, thus this act should get reform at all levels now.

      Time and time again, companies have learned: compared to iOS, there is no money in Android apps.

        Such companies should be in prostitution. Excellent ROI. Hardly any investment required. A lot of opportunities. Little risk, and what not. Then can later enter the territory of drug trafficking.

      andriod app is difficult because for every version you have to change code but in ios its easy to manage app

      • Shahid Saleem

        Not true. I have used apps that were written for Android 2.3 on 4.3 phones.

        Whereas almost every iOS app (not game) my friends have worked on have had minor changes made for API changes and deprecations.
