Dispo Is An Invite-Only App Like Clubhouse, But For Photos – Like Clubhouse, Dispo is an invite-only smartphone app that’s currently only available on iPhone, but that’s where the similarities end. … Dispo’s emphasis is on images. However, this is not just another Instagram clone, as Dispo comes with a unique selling point in the form of a digital-age take on instant cameras. Once the app is downloaded, the user takes a photo using the phone’s camera, but they then have to wait for it to be ‘developed’ which can take up to 24 hours. Essentially, users take a photo now with the understanding it won’t be ‘ready to collect’ until 9 a.m. the next morning. At which point it is published in the user’s feed and visible to others.“
