Ryan Hoover, founder of ProductHunt, asked to post Rolls from Dispo. First I was curious what that is. So, will share my findings with you.
What is Dispo app?
Dispo app was developed by Famous Youtuber David Dobrik. It is basically a vintage camera app – you take photos with a specific filter and then photos are available the next day at 9am. You can also order physical photos.
Dobrik said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal last year that the idea for Dispo was born after he noticed his friends taking photos with real disposable cameras at parties.
But, this was Dispo app – version 1.
What is Dispo 2?
Twitter screenshots were related to the updated beta version of Dispo app.
I wasn’t able to get in into Dispo B – it was full.
But, the updated app looks more like social media. Like an old-school Instagram, filled with vintage photos. Photos are organized into collections, called Rolls.
Can you get in Dispo Beta app?
At the moment, no. It is already full. I tried to.
When Dispo app will be available?
Dispo team posted this on Twitter. so, maybe an updated Dispo app will soon be available on App Store.
PSA: If you’re on the beta, and don’t want to lose your photos when the update hits the AppStore 👀, make sure you don’t delete the beta before your photos fully upload.

Dispo app investments
There is a lot of hype around Clubhouse app right now. And Dispo app might be in the same wave – rebirth of consumer apps.
According to The Information, top Sillicon Valley VC firms like Sequoia and Andressen Horowitz are also interested in the company. Andressen Horowitz recently backed Clubhouse at $1B valuation.
Dispo app reception
A lot of users who are in the beta are already sharing their photos.
