U-SPY is a social photo network within the iSPYCINCY platform that allows users (spies) to post pictures directly onto the site. The concept is simple. When you are out and about, as long as you have a registered spy profile, you can instantly load pictures onto the U-SPY photo stream.
While the mission of iSPYCINCY is to (Un)Cover the Queen City, we can’t do it alone. So we’re asking the city’s most social spies to jump on board. That’s right, we’re talking about you!
Whether you are at a happening party downtown, enjoying your favorite dish at a local restaurant, or merely taking in the city sights, we want to know what U-SPY.
For iPHONE users, if you haven’t already, you need to download the Instagram app, and please be sure to include your Instagram username in the U-SPY registration process. Then, the next time you take a picture tag #ispycincy in the caption and the photo will appear in the U-SPY photo feed. Yes, it’s that easy and that awesome!
For Android users, you can either tag #ispycincy on Instagram, or you can login to U-SPY on your mobile browser and click to upload the image.
For Blackberry users, you can login to U-SPY on your mobile browser and click to upload the image.
For computer users, otherwise known as the brick and mortar method, that is still a welcome option and works as you would expect.

If you’ve been wondering, “what are those icons beneath the photos, and what does it mean if I click?” then I’m happy to say you’re not alone. One way U-SPY differentiates itself from other photo sharing networks (beyond being totally awesome) is with our unique icons. On most platforms you can only “like” a photo, but on U-SPY, you can rate photos on the spy scale. That’s right we like to account for more than a one-dimensional “like,” we’re interested in how a photo’s style connects to your personality.
Here’s how it works: If you had to pick the spy who best embodies the picture, keeping these key words in mind (and those of your own), whom would you choose?
|James Bond – Sexy, Suave, and Sophisticated|
|Jack Bauer – BAMF (defer to the Urban Dictionary)|
|MacGyver – Cute, Clever, and Enterprising|
|Austin Powers – Groovy, Fun, and Free-spirited|
|iSPY – I like it, let’s leave it at that|
Don’t worry, this isn’t brain surgery, and you aren’t being graded, just pick the spy that comes to mind. Or, don’t pick one at all. If you aren’t having fun, then you aren’t doing it right. Cool, glad we understand each other.to top ↑
