Dispo app - what you need to know?

Recently, Dispo app by David Dobrik started to make waves on Twitter.

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.

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.

Dispo raised a $4 million seed round led by Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s VC firm Seven Seven Six in October 2020, according to Crunchbase.

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.
