iPhone App Review: iPrintMe

iPhone App Review: iPrintMe

March 22nd, 2010 by

Say Cheese….

If you have a photo on your iPhone or iPod touch that you want printed on canvas this is the app for you. iPrintMe is a FREE app that works with all camera and photo apps. iPrintMe allows you to do the work of ordering a canvas printed photo from your iPhone.

Features and Functionality

Once you have your chosen your picture, just download and open iPrintMe, select your image, and your masterpiece will be delivered right to your door. PrintMe offers free shipping within the United States. Each canvas print is gallery-wrapped around heavy duty stretcher bars, and arrives ready to hang on your wall.

Their prices are as follows:

9″ x 12″   canvas $39

12″ x 16″ canvas $49

15″ x 20″ canvas $59

What was Pleasing…

I did not have to sync my phone with my computer in order to upload my photos to a website where I would normally order canvas prints.

The canvas photo was beautiful and when I hit the picture it made a really cool drum sound!

It was delivered to my door rather than me having to go pick it up.

Problems

To me this application is not needed.  Most people sync their iPhone with their computer often or at least once a month right?  There for if you had a picture on your iPhone or iPod touch you would now have it on your computer. Then you could upload it to the website of your choice and have it printed.  The prices iPrintMe offers are the exact same as those of Walmart and Walmart also offers free “site to store” shipping. If you hate having to go to Walmart and pick things up then go with iPrintMe because they will deliver it to your door via FedEx for no extra charge.

It ran well except for a couple weird things. When you click submit it doesn’t have a loading or progress bar to let you know the order was submitted.  It sits there for about a minute frozen.  So what I did was tap the button many times.

When I filled out the submission forms I disliked the way the forms were designed and the side to side navigation.

Suggestions for Improvement

  • I would lower prices a tiny bit even a dollar, then you would be the cheapest place to order canvas prints because to me its easier to do this from my desktop anyways…but if I could save money by doing through your app I would then choose iPrintMe.  Although you guys do offer free shipping…I guess its just about the user and what is more convenient for them.
  • Offer more than canvas prints, such as Coffee mugs, 4 x 6 prints, 5 x 7 prints etc.
  • Display a loading or progress bar while submitting order. When I tapped the submit button the interface stopped responding this lead me to believe that the information had not been submitted. So I repeatedly tapped the button.
  • Instead of using a UIScrollView I think it would be beneficial to use a UINavigationControler….so make the forms similar to adding a contact rather than how you look at photos.
