ORLANDO - Snapshots, the Orlando startup behind a mobile photo app designed for social events, has partnered with New York-based Aviary to incorporate Aviary’s photo editing capabilities. This means that users can now edit photos in-app, adding filters, stickers, and other personal touches in a matter of seconds.
Snapshots allows users to create an event, take a photo or 30-second video with their smartphone, make edits such as cropping or adding effects, and then post the photo or video to a stream shared by other event attendees. In addition to adding their own pictures to the event, friends can “like” or “favorite” a picture, or add a comment. The application is designed as a more fluid and efficient way for groups to share event information in real-time, and can easily be linked to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media websites. Version 1.6 of the application has just been released and includes the new photo editing tools.
The app was recently featured in the iTunes store for 12 weeks, and the application has received media attention from Cult of Mac, Yahoo!, and The Wall Street Journal. Reviewers have praised its neat, streamlined design and accessible interface.
