LiveBooth was an app I created for live event photographers and photo booths. I developed and maintained it for several years, but this year I committed full-time to Simple Booth and realized I can no longer continue working on it. Thank you to you everyone who downloaded and used the app. If you still need it, is is available on the App Store, but it is no longer actively being maintained. If you’re looking for world-class photo booth apps and hardware, I encourage you to check out!

Simple Booth Event Edition is a new app from the creators of LiveBooth that makes it incredibly simple to setup your own photo booth for weddings, birthdays, parties and other events. Unlike LiveBooth, SimpleBooth Event Edition takes the photos on the iPad’s camera, formats them into modern layouts or photo strips and allows you to add stylized effects. LiveBooth is a social sharing kiosk and does not take photos, but does allow guests to easily select images and share multiple images with powerful marketing tools. Simple Booth Event Edition makes the photo booth software process easy and contained in one app, but guests can only share the latest layout. To get the best of both worlds, you can set up LiveBooth and Simple Booth Event Edition for a photo booth and a social sharing station so that guests can always come back to see their photos again or share them.

Set up your photo booth with simplicity

In the past, photo booth software meant carrying a laptop or desktop computer with accessories and cables to set up. There was a lot of troubleshooting and technical frustration of getting components to work together. Simple Booth Event Edition app for iPad changes that by including the robust features of advanced photo booth software in an intuitive app that takes the photos, formats them into strips and gives you option like stylized effects s in a touch-screen interface.

Real do-it-yourself photo booth software

Users simply tap the screen to initiate a countdown sequence, the photos are taken and a screen comes up with effect options. When the image is saved the booth resets automatically. There isn’t anything to worry about that could throw your guests off course.

Do you want all your strips to have the same look and feel? No problem, just open up the iPad settings and customize the default layout and effect to use. Then turn off the effects option that normally shows up for guests. The app is completely at your control.

You need an iPad, a stand and the app. Boom. That’s all. Have fun! If you are thinking about just setting up a DSLR by itself, think again. Often, an unmanned camera will confuse guests who don’t feel comfortable walking up to it and figuring out how to press the shutter so it discourages them from getting into the booth. With Simple Booth Event Edition, the iPad does everything for you. It grabs focus, adjusts exposure and takes the picture. Then the app formats your layout just how you want it and you’re back in action for another round of photos. That means more people using the booth and more pictures after the reception for you because it’s just so easy.

Social sharing built-in

Simple Booth Event Edition has Facebook, email and printing options built-in so that guests never have to leave the app to share their photos. For printing, Simple Booth Event Edition will automatically format two vertical photo strips side-by-side like LiveBooth does on a 4″ by 6″ print.
