Glass is your home for photography. Available on iPhone, iPad, and the Web, Glass is a photo sharing app and community. We’re private and member-supported. We don’t have ads, engagement algorithms, invasive data tracking, outside investors, or public counts. Really. We mean it. No ads. No algorithms. No tracking. No full screen videos. No venture capital causing us to be at odds with our community. Just photos.

Well, and a thriving and growing community. Public profiles that can double as a portfolio. Organic exploration and discovery. Monthly Categories. Photography focused features like P3 color profile support and metadata. Also a beautiful Web experience.

Oh, and iPad app. Because apparently that’s a thing that some photo apps don’t have? Couldn’t be us.

Whether you're a professional photographer or just starting out, Glass is the best place to share & grow your photography. A Glass membership is $4.99/month or $29.99/year. The first two weeks are free.

What’s New

Version 3.0

Glass Anywhere is here and email & password login is live!

Want to use Apple ID? Perfect — it’s still there and wonderful. Want to take more personal control with email and password? We’ve got you. Already signed up for a membership with Apple ID and want to switch? Just head to your Profile Settings to get started.

Shoutout to John, who noticed that we were using the wrong apostrophes — it’s been fixed.

We’re gonna take a nap now. But once that’s done, we’re getting to work on improving search and discovery. More on that soon.

Editors' Notes

We love that Glass elevates your photos with full-screen layouts and minimal compression. In the absence of likes and follower counts, there’s no need to focus on engagement—just share your favorite shots. With an engaged community of amateur and professional shutterbugs alike, the app makes it easy to share your love of photography.

Needs some polish and users

Photos-only feed without comments, likes, ads or stories feels like a breath of fresh air. Though hiding the person that posted a photo behind a swipe gesture feels maybe a bit _too_ minimalistic to me.

Whatever the app is doing with text fields is weird and needs to be fixed. I use the native keyboard with swiping and half the time the words aren’t entered, feels really buggy.

I also wish the app supported landscape, at least when viewing a single photo. Zooming in portrait on a landscape photo doesn’t feel great.

Other than that, I just hope the app grows and has more photographers to follow. Without algorithms or quantifiable metrics such as likes, discovering people seems tricky. But I hope the app develops its own little community vibe.

Great app

Looking forward to many more updates from Glass and how it will better foster the photography community.
