A big "Thank you!" to all our backers who pledged their support for this great idea!
The campaign for PartySnapper has ended without meeting the funding goal. Indiegogo will refund all the contributions within a couple of days.
We love the idea for PartySnapper and we have received ravingly positive feedback. Therefore, we have decided to go ahead with development although we will not get any funds from this campaign.
We have a working prototype and we will go into beta testing soon.
What is it?
PartySnapper is a social photo wall on steroids. Every guest at your party takes pictures with their iPhones. These are transmitted instantly to your own iPad or iPhone wirelessly and turned into a beautiful slide show that plays on a TV or projector connected via AirPlay or cable. At the end of the party, you don’t need to ask your guests to send you their photos because they already are collected on your device.
PartySnapper is a single app that has both a photo taking mode for party-goers and mode for hosting a party.
The app is super easy to use. Hosts and party-goers alike should both be able to use it, even at the end of a long night of partying.
Why we need your help
We totally love this idea and have been toying around with it ever since Bastian built a prototype for his wedding. But making a great app takes a lot of effort and more often than not, an app is not appreciated by users enough to pay the developer back.
In fact, development, design and marketing will take about three times more than the $20,000 campaign goal.
But we are prepared to match every dollar of yours with two of ours to make PartySnapper a reality if you also think this is a great idea. All we ask is that with a small (or large) contribution you show us that our efforts will not be in vain. And there are great perks for you as well.
What’s in it for you?
Apart from PartySnapper and the good feeling of supporting a cool project, you can get some great perks:
The Boinx Software team knows how to make great photo and video apps. Our stop motion app “iStopMotion” won the “Macworld Best of Show” award two years in a row. Other quality apps from Boinx Software include You Gotta See This! and PhotoPresenter. On the Mac side, we have three Apple Design Awards to our credit, recognizing excellence in designing apps that reflect Apple’s values in design and usability.
This whiz kid came close to winning his own Apple Design Award last year as one of the best student developers at the Apple World Wide Developers Conference 2013 where he went on a student scholarship awarded to him by Apple.
The apps that owe him their existance go into the hundreds. Most recently, he was the driving force behind the Leica T app that we developed in cooperation with Leica.
His signature design graces all of the Boinx products, our website and other top selling apps on the app store.
If she hadn’t allowed her husband Bastian (aka Dr. Term T. Bowman) to create and try a prototype of PartySnapper at their wedding, it wouldn’t exist. Bastian is also PartySnapper product manager.
These four are supported by the amazing staff of Boinx Software. Check out our team page for the full cast and crew.
