Kicksend: Send & Print Photos- Written iPhone App Review
As an amateur photographer, I love sharing photos with others. Sometimes photos look better when they’re printed, but doing so can be a royal pain. This is especially true for those who aren’t photo savvy or don’t own a wireless printer. What if I said there was a way to have photos printed professionally with the tap of your finger?
Concept and Functionality:
Kicksend is a revolutionary photo sharing app that goes beyond email attachments and popular social networking sites by allowing you to print photos professionally with the touch of a button. No, the app doesn’t turn your phone into a ultra cool photo printer, but it does allow you to order prints with unbelievable ease.
To start, simply create an account or link an existing Facebook or Google+ account with Kicksend. Once your account is created, you can upload a profile picture so friends and family can easily recognize you in the app (if you choose to connect with them socially). From there, you can see your personal timeline of uploaded photos and photos that others have shared with you. You can even comment on photos, “heart” them, and order prints for yourself.
Ordering prints takes almost no time at all thanks to Kicksend’s extremely organized layout. Simply choose whether you want your photos to be picked up at a store or delivered to an address and upload photos from your device. From there, you can choose your preferred store or enter the address the photos will be shipped to. That’s it!
Kicksend is definitely a photographer’s dream app. Remember all of those sunset photos you thought would look great in a frame? Use Kicksend to have them printed at your nearest Walgreens, CVS, Target, or Duane Reade store. Your photos will be ready for pickup in one hour. You can even choose your photo sizes, from compact 4×6 prints to large 8×10 prints. Prices vary from store to store, so be sure to keep that in mind.
Also, Kicksend allows you to share photos with friends and family through the app without printing them. This is an excellent way to upload photos to albums and share them without worrying about privacy issues on major social networks. Plus you can even set a weekly reminder to send photos to loved ones so they’re never missing out.
Kicksend is free to download from the App Store and the app doesn’t charge processing fees or anything of the like. If you order 10 prints or more, you’ll even get free shipping if you choose to have your photos home delivered. I plan to use Kicksend for my photo printing needs, and I’m sure you will, too!
Kicksend: Send & Print Photos is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
