At last it’s here, the long anticipated launch of Justin Cooke’s multi sensory social network has finally happened! Months of rumours have surrounded the ex-Topshop CMO and Burberry alumni, back in March at SXSW Interactive at our event he claimed to be developing an app that would take on the top 5 social networks. TechCrunch’s Mike Butcher asked if it was an “Instagram for emotion?”, well now that question can be answered.

Tunepics, it’s more like Instagram with a soundtrack. The first social network to connect multiple senses, combining both sound and vision, with the hope to create nostalgia and trigger memories for the user. Beautifully designed by the innovate7 team, built by mega agency AKQA, (the team behind NIKE’s technological prowess), and already supported by a long list of the hottest celebrities around, this app has all the right ingredients in the mix.

“I’ve always had a fascination with music, colour, images and the weather and how they influence our mood and emotions. I want people to be able to share the depth behind the moments they experience and to articulate all the ones that they dream of having. This is a magical and cinematic celebration of people’s lives that touches all of our senses. Music is the most powerful way to express the things we see and feel; nothing else comes close. With Tunepics, everyone can create a soundtrack to their life.” Justin Cooke, founder and CEO, Tunepics

Good luck guys, we look forward to posting our summer selfies to the tune of Eve’s Who’s that girl? (La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la).
