Why Use a Photo Booth App?

Photo booths are a must-have for any event - from weddings and bridal showers to award shows and conferences. However, traditional camera set-ups can cost thousands of dollars and rentals aren't always the most cost-effective solution. With the right iPad stand and application, you can turn any tablet into an affordable DIY photo booth. You may find yourself asking "What is the best photo booth app?" The truth is, the best app is the one that most fits your needs as a marketer or entertainer. Deciding which photo booth app is best for your event depends on a few factors; including your budget, desired camera features, and the sharing needs of your guests. To help you decide, here is a round-up of the top 6 mobile apps for photo booths.


Simple Booth


Simple Booth is an all-in-one event solution that makes event photo sharing, as the name suggests...simple. Beyond taking amazing snapshots with fun props and effects, your guests can make collages and GIFs, and easily share their images with themselves or with friends and followers online. Photos are saved to an online gallery with custom hashtag that you can set for your event, allowing eventgoers to view their photos after the event and post to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with their own device. Watermark your logo on each image, making this photo booth software perfect for branded or sponsored events. For touchless interactions, Simple Booth features new contactless photo booth controls including voice activation and QR code delivery.

Guests can share images instantly via email, text, or Dropbox, and print their photos using local AirPrint compatible printers. Event hosts can have images sent to a business server or Dropbox account, while giving individual users control over their privacy settings as they navigate through the app. To reduce germs and fingerprints on the screen, the application also supports contactless controls by scanning a QR code with a guest's smartphone device.

Mini Photobooth


This app is popular for its affordability and features. The photo booth app allows you to design customized templates for single images, collages, and even GIFs using a variety of stickers, fonts and graphics. The camera also features a countdown for taking group photos from a tablet or smartphone, and lets you use an external remote for instant snapshots. Like others on this list, Mini Photobooth gives guests the option to share their selfies on social media, or send photos to themselves via text messaging apps or email. A cool feature you can't pass up is "Event Mode" which allows the host to set a passcode for exiting the app, so users can't switch to a game or search the web while on your device.

The Guest


The Guest isn't like the other photo booth apps on this list. In fact, it doesn't take photos at all. Developed by the popular wedding planning app The Knot, The Guest is a photo-sharing hub for large gatherings like weddings and conferences. A host can use their device's default camera and share images from the photo booth privately to an online gallery with all of their guests. In addition to the group selfie station, partygoers can add their own pics into the mix, including selfies and videos from the dance floor.

All photos and videos taken at the event will automatically be shared to your event's gallery so don't worry about having to upload your files separately. All media from the event appears in your gallery effortlessly and instantaneously. Guests can also remove their own content or turn off auto-sharing at any time.
