Social picture tagging

The Problem It Solves

scanCandy answers the question of how can one post images or content on the internet without their content being plagiarized and used by someone else without permission. scanCandy accomplishes this by creating a unique fingerprint for each image you upload and allows you to link it to an action that you would like the image to represent. 

See how we built it.


scanCandy is a social media image sharing and scanning app that provides members a fun, safe, and easy way to add actions to photographs that will allow for new levels of communication, branding, and even commerce.  You can add Vines, Youtube videos, Flipagrams and any other url that you may want to load into a photo.  Any photo of a product that you sell can link right to the buy it page if you like.  The options are limitless. The content is yours, and the brand is you.
