The “experimental photo exchange platform” Rando has just received a significant update.
Rando is so named because of its focus on randomized photo exchange. With the app, you send round-framed photos aka “randos” to other users at random. In return, you get to received randos also from random users.
The app has been described as an antisocial photo-sharing app in that it doesn’t have the social functions you’ve come to expect from a usual photo-sharing app. In Rando, you can neither like nor comment on photos. Also, you can’t share photos with others.
Basically, what you can do with randos is to find out where they’re taken. Just as the recipients of your randos can know where you took them, you can know where your received randos were shot.

And in the new version of Rando, you can easily swipe between your received and sent randos.
The latest update to the app adds a new timeline for sent randos, with information on where they were delivered. Also, it removes and replaces the pull-to-refresh feature so that received and sent randos are automatically added into their respective timelines.
The update also brings the ability to save received randos to the camera roll and the ability to set the exposure level by tapping the camera view.
