- Create -
Pocketbooth takes a series of photos just seconds apart to create stunning photo strips of your memorable moments. Pose with friends, lovers, family, or pets, and if none are available, don’t worry. Pocketbooth is ideal for spontaneous self-portraits as well. And with the new Party Pack, you can turn Pocketbooth into the ultimate party machine.

- Share -
A photo booth would only be half the fun if you couldn’t share the strips with your friends. Pocketbooth lets you do that, too. With just a few taps you can post your photostrips to Facebook and Twitter, send them by email, or wirelessly print them on your AirPrint-enabled home printer. Printed strips make great gifts, wall hangings, locker decorations, love letter inserts, and more.

- Print & Ship -
If posting, tweeting, or home-printing your photo strips simply won’t cut it, you can even have your photo strips professionally printed and mailed to your friends or loved ones anywhere in the world (an extra charge applies). Simply pick a photostrip, tell us where to send it, and we'll do the rest. Your photo strips will be printed on glossy card stock and shipped in a custom-printed envelope via USPS the following business day. You can even write a personal note on the back of the strip before you send it.

- Customize -

What's New

EGADS! There was a bug with ordering Prints as of iOS 8 and we just realized it. Many apologies to those of you who have tried to order unsuccessfullly and thanks to the few folks who contacted us when they discovered the problem.

This is now fixed. Happy New Year.

If you're wondering whether you were affected or not, you would have seen a cryptic error after you tried to order a print. It would have been something like this: "blah blah blah (NULL)". This is now fixed. You are now able to Print & Ship again.

That is all.

***New in Version 3.0.1***
A quick release to provide better instructions for users who have not given Pocketbooth permission to access the camera. (spoiler: it is in Settings > Privacy > Camera)

***New in Version 3.0***

We are so excited about the arrival of iOS 8. Many of the features we had planned from the very beginning of Pocketbooth are now possible thanks to new technologies included in iOS 8.

First, we've enabled background printing for Pocketbooth. Once you've set up your AirPrint printer, you no longer have to keep selecting it each time you print. Simply tap the print button and it prints! (just as you would expect)

Second, we've added a Party Pack in-app purchase that turns Pocketbooth into a party booth. AutoPrint automatically AirPrints your photo after every shot. Party Mode keeps the app on the Pose screen for non-stop photo taking. When both of these options are turned on, you have the perfect party machine. Guests can sit one right after the other and printouts are made immediately after the photostrip is taken.

Third, we've done some bug fixing and the app is now fully iOS 8 compatible.
