[prMac.com] Reston, VA - SnowGlobeMaker offers infinite ways to create and share photo snow globes with the Snow Globe Maker Spring app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, available now on the iTunes App Store for only $1.99.
Photographers, scrapbookers, crafters, and creative kids can express their artistry and have fun designing and sharing unique, personalized snow globes that combine their own pictures with professional art. Users can choose saved pictures from the photo album, or take new ones with the iPhone camera.
An integrated sharing menu makes it easy to send a globe in email, post it to Facebook or save it for use in print and online crafts. Printed snow globes can be used to create custom greeting cards, gift tags, scrapbook decorations, place cards, and more.
Snow Globe Maker Spring is the most customizable snow globe iPhone app ever, giving users infinite ways to express moods, interests, humor, and the beauty of spring. Rain drops replace the traditional snow flakes, and a custom theme song sets the spring mood.
Finally, an app that motivates kids to send thank yous, make something special for Mother's Day, keep in touch with family, and flex their creative muscles by designing and sharing customized snow globes. Even non-readers can use the simple mix-and-match interface.
"We take so many photos at spring time, but they don't always make it to the printer. Now we can feature our favorite pictures in a unique way and share them right from the mobile device" said Julie McCool, SnowGlobeMaker founder and mom to twins. "We made Easter snow globes featuring the annual egg hunt; chose a bicycle, baseball glove, and fishing pole for Dad's birthday greeting, and are combining the red roses and gift box with a picture of Mom for a Mother's Day Facebook post."
Snow Globe Maker Spring offers more customization options than any other iPhone snow globe app:
* Choose from the photo album or use the iPhone camera directly
