[prMac.com] Tallinn, Estonia - Tanel Teemusk, an independent mobile developer, today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of SquarePrint, free photo printing services app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. SquarePrint is a productivity tool for everyone shooting photos with their smartphone. With few simple steps, app users can order prints, stickers, fridge magnets and even a wooden framed photo grid using their own photos. Photos can be shot using Instagram or any other photo app. SquarePrint can use any photo in iPhone photo library. Photos are printed using the best printing equipment available and shipped worldwide.
Upon launching the app, user can select one of the pre-designed SquarePrint products. There is six different products currently available ranging from photo prints to fridge magnets and art canvas prints. User will be asked to add photos to the selected product in the tool window once a product is selected. When done designing, user will input her shipping address, pay with PayPal or credit card and wait for the postman to arrive with the prints.
Printing smartphone photos was possible before SquarePrint, but the process of ordering them was a hassle - each photo had to be imported to a desktop computer and manually uploaded to a printing service. This took time and there was no quarantee that the photos are in a correct resolution and format.
SquarePrint app tries to minimise the steps users have to take to get their smartphone photos printed. Using the app, the printed product ordering process can be done in three simple steps. Choose photos, input shipping address and pay. Data entry will have to be done once intially as the app will remember the information entered. SquarePrint app will save the photos to a correct size/resolution and upload them automatically. All of the ordering process can be done on users phone. No desktop computers needed. All this to enable users to get from shooting a photo to a physical print as effortlessly as possible.
This app was designed to bring back physical photographs. There is so much elegance to a photograph in the physical form - it cannot be deleted and it means so much more than a photo on a screen. Each photograph taken and Instagram snapped holds a memory - and now everyone can have those memories in the physical form.
"iPhones are replacing compact cameras and even DSLR's like digital replaced film photography. We're used to share our photos on social media, but have forgotten how it feels to hold a photograph in our hands.", says Tanel Teemusk, hobby photographer and author of the app. "There's something magical about a developed photograph. It's so nice to hand them out as birthday cards to my friends and family or stick them to my fridge as magnets. I just hope that with this new app everybody will be able to feel this magic once again."
