Team R4G is proud to again partner

with the Pickuta app –

The name Pickuta comes from two words:

pic (a photo or image) and kuta (Swahili for "find").  Pickuta, now in pre-launch, allows photo and video uploads that are tagged to your GPS location. Other cool functionality includes uploading GPS files (GPX, TCX and FIT) in order to add locations to your pics.
