Digg co-founder Kevin Rose is getting back into the startup game, and it looks like his first product will be an iPhone app for sharing “tiny little photos that disappear after 24 hours.”

Michael Arrington got a preview of Rose’s app at TechCrunch Disrupt today, but he didn’t go into the specifics of it. You won’t have to wait long, though, as Rose revealed that the app is currently in the App Store review process. As it is, Tiiny sounds kind of like a cross between Instagram and Snapchat.

Tiiny’s website includes an App Store link, but it’s not active in the US yet.

Rose’s latest stab at entrepreneurship comes through North Technologies. The company will operate as a mobile design studio, rapidly spinning out simple apps and then devoting resources to the ones that stick.
