Which is the best iPad photo booth app?

 3.  My Photo Booth + Pic Monkey  9.99 (one time) + 7.99/mo

My Photo Booth is a great option at a great price if you don’t mind creating your personalized designs from outside of the app.  I don’t think too many professionals will find this as a problem though.  There are a ton of ready-made designs as well.  Here are some of our favorite features:

  • Print directly from app
  • Readymade/personalized designs
  • Lock iPad and Settings from guests
  • Filters
  • Bluetooth shutter options
  • Social Integrations


simplebooth ipad photo booth app4.  Simple Booth – $69/mo Unlimited should work for most, or they have a $169/mo option as well.

Simple booth is a powerful app that we enjoyed checking out.  It is definitely capable, and can be used for business.  It is mainly geared for the iPhone though so try it out and see if you are good with the interface before you buy.  Here are some of our favorite features:

  • Gifs
  • Layouts
  • Filters
  • Autopic (No-Touch)
  • Social Sharing Capabilities
  • Gallery for events so you can share with clients.

snappic ipad photo booth app

5.  Snappic iPad Photo Booth App – Either 19/event – 69/mo for Unlimited for basic (this is good for most people) – There is an enterprise option for 169/mo

Snappic is an exciting app with some advanced features that we really like.  This would be a great option for someone who is serious about expanding business with the Eclipse 2.  Clients love this software!

  • Ability to connect with DSLR Camera


curator ipad photo booth app

6.  Curator – There is an option for a 29/event option, but you want at least the 140/mo Unlimited option as it unlocks key features.  There is also a 249/mo option that you can choose at your discretion.

This software is similar to Snappic in features, but Snappic tends to offer a little more value per your dollar.  Try it out and see what you think and let us know.  A few features that we like are:

  • Customize logo and layout
  • Social/email/sms
  • Offline Que
  • Printing
  • Boomerang
  • Analytics

So those are the 6 we recommend for checking out and getting started with your iPad photo booth journey.  It is a great way to expand your business with an extremely mobile option.  Obviously you are still going to want to bring the props and backdrop, but it all helps.  Which iPad photo booth software do you prefer?  Let us know!

Don’t forget to check out the Ultimate iPad Photo Booth.  Of course, we are talking about the Eclipse 3 iPad Photo Booth. If you have been waiting for the perfect time to get involved with iPad photo booths, now is the time.  This booth is a game-changer, and easily blows the competition away when it comes to iPad photo booths.  Their little flimsy stands can’t touch the elegance of the Eclipse 2.
