I am not entirely sure of the terms and conditions of imgur's services, but you could look into a hosting provider such as that. Imgur's service limits to 1,250 uploads per day, and if you are providing a free service then hopefully you won't exceed that. If you do, then it's time to look into more robust hosting. Here's a link to their limitations: https:...

Bandwidth It is hard to estimate that bandwidth usage based on the small amount of information you have provided. What does the app do? Will all 10k users be using it at the same time and every day?
