A division of SocialIn based in Mountain View, CA, PicsArt is a team of 40 passionate developers who shared a sheer frustration that no free photo app seemed to have a robust feature set. When PicsArt launched in November 2011, there were many great one- or two-tool apps, but there wasn’t a single free app putting everything a photographer could ever want in one place. PicsArt remedied this problem. A bootstrapped startup driven to profitability by its fiercely loyal community, today, PicsArt dominates the Android market for photography. PicsArt consistently ranks in the top 50 free apps from Google’s Play store, and with more than 60 million installs and growing at more than 4.5 million installs per month, PicsArt’s development has only just begun.
