It’s the two year anniversary of popular photography app Camera+, and the company is celebrating with a blistering, trash-talking blog post.John Casasanta, founder of Tap Tap Tap, says Adobe, Zynga, Google, and most recently Twitter have all tried to buy his app making company, Tap Tap Tap, and Camera+. (Zynga was more interested in one of its games than Camera+.)
Casasanta turned them all down.
He also says he almost raised a round of funding from venture capitalists, but at the last second changed his mind because he didn’t like the path they were taking him down.
His attitude towards taking money? He says, “Fuck the VCs.”
He doesn’t need VCs. His app has 8 million downloads, and he’s preparing new features.
Since Facebook paid $1 billion for Instagram, the numbers of zeros on the offers that have come Casasanta’s way have been tempting. “Now I know how that old-timey chap felt with the snake and the apple or whatever,” he wrote.
Casasanta has gone into greater detail about his hatred of VCs in the past.
As for the future, Casasanta wrote that the next release of Camera+ is codenamed “Darkroom” and will make users “very happy.”
