Those users with some privacy concerns will find this app interesting. Especially those who use to share compromising photos from its mobile phones. Cryptgram is a photo editor (well, you can only write a caption to attract people and draw over the photo with the color you choose) and a photo-locker.
Rather than photo editor features, its added-value feature is the capability to lock photos. How does it do that? Well, it blurs the photo making it 'illegible'. You can choose unlock time limit (the number of seconds that your friends can unlock the message for each time), unlock number limit (the number of times that your friends can unlock the messages) and finally the "credits" or "price" your friends must pay to unlock your photo. Obviously, that price is paid with in-app credits.
The main flak of this app is that it requires the other users having it installed in their device to make the most of all its features. You can invite them by sending a blurry image: that surely will involve them. The app lays out an interesting app concept, however, it should be enhancing regarding usability and design.
