Famed baby photographer Anne Geddes has gotten into the social media game with a new iPhone app. Developed by Punchkick Interactive, the Anne Geddes iPhone app not only lets you peruse some of her best work, but also keeps you up on all things Geddes.
For avid photographers or fans of Anne Geddes, the app is especially interesting because it links to her blog and web site. You read up on even more Geddes-related news thanks to the app’s thorough biography section. The only downfall to those parts of the app is that the super small font, which doesn’t seem to get larger if you turn the phone horizontally.
Other parts of the app include the feature that lets you send someone a “card” with one of Geddes’ iconic baby photos or an Anne-inspired baby photo of your own. The photo gallery changes seasonally and offers several choices from which to choose. The Anne Geddes iPhone app also has a link to her web page. In the app’s Settings section, you can sign up to have her newsletter sent directly to your phone.
The app also connects users to Anne Geddes Facebook page as well as video montages of her photos. The videos feature photos along with music and inspirational words about the potential of new life, babies and all that fuzzy stuff. So if you’re big into Anne Geddes or cute, although sometimes unconventional, baby photos, then the Anne Geddes app is definitely a go for you. The app is also handy if you find yourself at that point in life where it seems that one friend after another is having a baby. The app’s inspirational messages or cute photo would be an ideal, and welcomed, text when sent to a frazzled, but starry-eyed new mom.
The Anne Geddes requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
