learning the basics:

Here is how synco works:

Create separate groups for friends, family and others.

Invite friends, family and others to any of your groups.

Choose any group of yours and just initiate a synco.

Each group member has five minutes to respond with a photo and a short text about what they are up to at the moment.

After the five minutes is up synco sends a photo collage to every group member imprinted with the current time and date.

Use address book:

To participate in synco events and to create synco photo collage memories you will need to have others in your groups.

Inviting friends and family is easier by importing your address book. However if you decide not to, that's ok too, you can still invite others by typing contacts manually.

General FAQs:

Synco - capture in a photo collage what you and your friends are doing right now, in real time, and save this shared memory forever.

What is synco?

Synco is a fun new experience in group based social networks.
Synco is a free social mobile app that lets you keep in touch with friends and family in a fun new way. With synco you create small groups that you can reach out to any time and see what they’re doing in real time. When you reach out, everyone in the group has 5 minutes to respond with a photo and a short caption about what they are up to at that moment. After the 5 minutes is up everyone in the group will get a photo collage of all the people in the group who responded.

Is synco free?

Yes, it is absolutely free. You can use it as many times as you want free of charge.

Where did the name synco come from?

synco is kind of a mashup of the short version of the English word “synchronize” (as in “let’s sync up”) and the Spanish word “cinco” (meaning 5). “Let’s synco” means “we have 5 minutes to sync up”.

How many syncos can I participate in a day?

There is no limit on the number of syncos you can send or receive per day.

How many groups can I be a member of?

All of us have many different groups in our social circles. Close family, friends, college buddies, colleagues, workout partners, and so on. Synco helps you to keep in touch with all of these groups therefore we want everyone to create and have as many groups as they want.

How many members can be in a group?

Every group can have maximum 20 members which means you and 19 other people.

Why do I have only 5 minutes to respond to a synco request?

The point of synco is to capture what you and your friends are doing right now. We figured 5 minutes is still within this period of “now”, and at the same time it is enough for most of us to still respond given the fact we might be in the office working, sitting in school, or bathing our kids.

Do you consider adding new features to synco?

We constantly work on improving synco better. If you have anything in mind how you think synco could be improved, please let us know through our contact us page. Thanks.
