What's New

As the result of some great customer feedback, we have added a few more options for (longer) shot delays.

Also due to customer feedback, we have ever-so-slightly changed the behavior of how the red light works in the app. Previously, the red light would stay illuminated during the entire sequence of shots. Now, the red light only illuminates the second before each photo is taken. As if to say, "hold your pose!" This is attempt to address the frequently requested visual countdown. Because we have chosen to assume many of the same (beautiful, we would say) constraints of the vintage booths this app aims to replicate, we do not have plans to add a visual countdown. HOWEVER, this tweak to the red light behavior should address some of the same concerns. If you simply MUST have a visual countdown, we invite you to check out our iPad photobooth app, Pocketbooth Party. ;)

Finally, there were, as always, some behind-the-scenes bug fixing that you probably won't even notice. But that's how much we care. Cheers!

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.
