Wedding Photos and Videos Management App

Are you on the look out for an app to save, organize, and share photos & videos of your upcoming function such as wedding, birthday, anniversary, or school graduation? Do you also want this app to gather (crowd-source) your photos & videos that your guests might snap at your function? Soon you may find that there are several apps available in the market ready to help you. When you start comparing them side by side, you will quickly learn their strengths and weaknesses.

Wedding Photo
Following are three criteria that may help you in making a decision. There is, of course, a bit of tooting our own horn here.

  1. Privacy and Security:

    There are several apps out there that allow users to invite their guests by sharing a code or a link. Though, such codes and links make it convenient for the guests to join your event without requiring you to approve their subscription to your event, they have great potential to easily leak out to the unwanted audience through social media postings and various other ways. This carries a risk of anyone posting photos/videos to your group that you did not want, or someone downloading your photos/videos without your consent/approval.

    SnapsBoard app has been built from ground up to ensure utmost privacy and security for its members. SnapsBoard provides its members complete control in inviting their guests. SnapsBoard members can invite their contacts who they have stored on their phones, via direct emails, or their contacts stored in popular email systems such as Gmail, Yahoo! email, and Hotmail. No one can join your event unless you have sent invitation to them yourself.

  2. Limitations on photo/video size:

    There are some apps that may support uploading of videos on one platform, but not on others. Also, ensure to check the video length that the app supports. Some apps support uploading video clips of 15 to 25 seconds only.

    SnapsBoard supports uploading of videos up to 1GB in size or 10 minutes in length on all of its supported platforms. You and your guests can record and upload videos from any Android or iOS device or from laptop/desktop, SnapsBoard handles the complexity to make those videos available transparently on all the supported devices.

  3. App’s operability on popular devices and platforms:

    Ensure the app you pick would work on the popular phone devices and platforms that your guests might be using.

    SnapsBoard app is available on iPhones, iPads, Android phones, Android tablets, and accessible via browsers on laptops and desktops. You and your guests will have the same app experience and access to all features regardless what device you use.

Twitpic App Alternative

Twitpic has announced that the app will be shutting down on Oct 25th (see their announcement at http://blog.twitpic.com/2014/09/twitpic-is-shutting-down/). Sorry to see Twitpic go.

If you use Twitpic to share images/photos to Twitter, you may consider using a better alternative, SnapsBoard. SnapsBoard app shares the actual photo/image to Twitter. Your followers would see the actual shared image/photo right within the tweet. In contrast, Twitpic and many other photo/video apps post url of the images/photos to Twitter that requires followers to click on the shared link in the tweet to see the actual image/photo. SnapsBoard is super easy and requires less effort to share on Twitter and other social sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, and even via direct messages or emails.
