Cupslice lets Indonesians combine their own photos with the latest jokes and trending topics

Mar 23, 2015

Follow @texastee Most photo editing apps let users enhance the visual quality of their photos. They enhance colors and contrast, add frames, collage options or blur effects. Cupslice is different. This photo editing app that’s made in Indonesia also includes filters and effects, but its main feature is funny stickers that capture current trends from social media. Users can insert these on top of their own images to add context and meaning. After editing, the photos can be shared through a variety of social networks, including Instagram, Twitter and Whatsapp. Abdur Rabbi Arrasul Sayaf, Cupslice’s co-founder, explains that the idea to use stickers this way came from observing how Indonesians actually use social media. “Here, people just love making repetitive jokes, using phrases, hashtags, or motivational quotes,” says Sayaf. “They keep changing over time. But not everyone knows how to use complicated photo editing software. So we try to solve this problem for them.” Sayaf says the Cupslice team is constantly monitoring social media and popular sites in Indonesia, ready to churn out sets of stickers that correspond with ongoing memes, hot topics, and popular expressions. Indonesia has a large and very young population. Of Indonesia’s 253.6 million people, more than 40% are below the age of 24 . For this reason, it’s not surprising that many of Cupslice’s stickers appeal to a teenage world with stickers on love, friendship, and life advice. Women for the win Sayaf shares another interesting piece of information: Around 80 percent of Cupslice’s users are female. Cupslice was founded in January 2014. Before Cupslice, Sayaf and his co-founders worked at digital agencies. Social media monitoring and being on top of the latest internet trends is in their blood, according to Sayaf. He cites Photofy and Rhonna Designs as Cupslice’s direct competitors, but there  are many more apps in the photo editing segment in photo-crazy Asia.

However, only about 50,000 of those who have downloaded the app can be counted as active users, says Sayaf. Cupslice is one of the startups that was accepted into the Ideabox accelerator in September 2014, an opportunity which has helped the team rethink their product and business model. “We used to be ad-based,” says Sayaf. “But that was too annoying. We are now changing our business model. In the future, users will buy a subscription to receive a batch of the latest stickers. We are thinking that maybe one dollar is the right price for a monthly subscription. Unlike stickers in Line , we expect ours not to be reused often, so we have to price accordingly.” For now, monetizing is not the priority. Sayaf wants to reach a critical mass of users first and then improve his product. Cupslice is even considering expanding to other countries, which will require capturing and visualizing culture-specific memes, jokes, and expressions. Sayaf says India, interestingly enough, has become the second largest user base for Cupslice after its native Indonesia. “Maybe it is because India is a colorful culture. Our app is colorful, maybe that’s why they like it,” says Sayaf. Cupslice is due to graduate from Ideabox in April and is also ready to seek further investment, according to Sayaf. In case you were wondering: the name Cupslice is derived from the vision Sayaf and his team have about how and when the app should be used. “We imagine these young people enjoying their time while having a cup of coffee and a slice of cake.” Editing by Leighton Cosseboom and Charlie Custer Cupslice is easy-to-use photography app that offers lot of filter, frame and badge with added basic editing tool. The option to add stickers of photos is also available. Its polished and compact nature makes it stand out among the rest. Location
