Which is the best iPad photo booth app?

We recommend choosing your top 2-3 and testing them to choose the one that works best for you, your business, and your customers.

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

A Photo Booth App for Every Event
Obviously, different events are going to call for different types of approaches to photos and just about everything else that is related to that event. For instance, if you’re having a party with friends, the photo booth you have in place is going to be used very differently than how you’d expect it to be used at a corporate networking event. That means that when it comes to the photo booth app you choose, versatility is vitally important.
The bottom line for you, if you’re running a photo booth business, is that you keep your costs low and that you’re able to accommodate every type of event efficiently and smoothly. A photo booth app that can handle multiple different settings, styles and themes is only going to help you market yourself to more groups, people and organizations, and that’s only going to increase your exposure as you continue to successfully work different events and occasions.
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.
