Wish properties

Each wish has properties which describe it and set limitations. It helps you specify details which responders use to take best photos for you.

Wish properties are:


short description of your wish

There is no default value for title and it is required property which you have to provide


describe your wish in detail. It is useful information for responders to take the best photos which match your request as match as possible

There is no default value for description and it is optional property


private wish is not displayed in the Nearby and therefore you have to share it manually outside of the application. Please read more details in this post

Your wish is not private by default

Max photos / responder

your wish can accept many responders. This property limits how many photos can send each of them. It should help photo diversity.

Default is 10 photos per responder

Expire after

specify how long is your wish valid.  After expiration wish is not displayed in the Nearby and responders are not able to send you new photos and messages. It’s up to you how long will be your wish valid, but maximum is 3 months.

Default value is 1 month

Max distance

This property defines maximum distance from target place. If the responder is farer, app will not allow to take photos and ask him to go closer. Define quite larger distance if you want some big places like mountains, city from the far away or want photos from around. Define smaller distance if you want photos closer to the target … city tower, historical building, shopping mall, …

Default value is 2km / 2mi

Max age of photos

It can happen that there are more than one wishes for the same place. If the responder already took photos for one of the request and the photos are not older than Max age of photos, he can send them and fulfil another requests as well. You can argue, that these photos are not unique for the request anymore. You are right. It is better than no photo. If you are responder … how many times are you ready to go and take photos of the same place again and again and again ?

Default value is 2 weeks
