PartySnapper: The Social Photo Wall App That Will Wow Your Party Guests

Puchheim, Germany – March 18, 2015 – PartySnapper, the newest app from Boinx Software, is now available to the public, just in time for all those prepping for wedding season or anyone who’s simply ready to celebrate the end of winter. A social photo wall on steroids, PartySnapper is an iOS app that will truly wow party-goers around the world. The new app from Boinx allows party hosts to collect all photos taken at a party in one central location, while keeping party-goers engaged and connected to all the action, as their personally snapped photos instantly stream onto a venue’s surrounding screens. And for a limited time only, PartySnapper Party Hard Unlimited is now 50% off! (See below for in-app pricing). Get PartySnapper today!

Watch Dr. Term T. Bowman explain how PartySnapper works here!

Originally invented for a wedding, the initial idea for PartySnapper was conceived of by Boinx Software video guru Bastian Wölfle, who developed a very early version of the app when he tied the knot in 2012. “Being the geek that I am, I knew I wanted to do something a bit nerdy for our big day. At so many weddings, they give out old disposable cameras for guests to snap pictures with, but these days, just about everyone has an iPhone they’re taking photos with anyway. I thought, why not find a way to connect everyone in so the pictures they snap are not only automatically saved in one central place, but automatically stream to the venue’s screens instantly? It created a really fun and engaging element I knew others would want to have at their weddings and events, too.

Luckily a couple of the Boinx guys were at my wedding so they could see and how much people loved the slideshow. I like to tell myself that this convinced them PartySnapper is a great app that entertains guests and works easily.

Kelly Guimont of the Mac Observer said of the app, “I love this idea because aside from the cool factor of showing off pictures at an event as they happen, having them all on my device at the end is unbelievably convenient.

Bring a special touch to every event you host this year. Whether it’s a slew of events leading up to the “Big Day” or even just a backyard barbeque, PartySnapper is here to make sharing photos fun and easy for everyone.

About PartySnapper

Every guest at a party or social gathering takes tons of pictures with their iPhones. PartySnapper transmits these instantly to the event host’s iPad or iPhone wirelessly, where all the photos are collected then displayed as a beautiful slideshow that plays on a TV or projector via AirPlay or cable. PartySnapper has both a photo-taking mode for attendees and a mode for hosting parties. At the end of the party, there’s no need to ask the guests to send in their photos – they’ve already been aggregated on the host’s device. The app is super easy to use; hosts and party-goers alike will both be able to use it, even at the end of a long night of partying.

Taking Pictures is Free! Taking pictures will always be free for your party guests. Tell everyone to download the free PartySnapper app and start taking pictures the moment they walk through the door.

Free Party Light Mode: Party Light mode is limited to one party with a 10-picture slideshow. You can use this for an afternoon get together while planning for the main event.

Party Hard With In-App Purchases: 4.99 USD gets you 7 days of unlimited partying; 9.99 USD is perfect for those with 30 days of partying ahead of them; and, for the biggest party animals out there, 29.99 USD gets you a lifetime of partying (great for anyone with a party-hosting venue)

Party Hard Unlimited – Intro Pricing for a Limited Time Only!

To celebrate the launch of PartySnapper, Boinx is offering Party Hard Unlimited (a value of 29.99 USD) at 50% off – that’s just 14.99 USD to party on, and on, and on. But hurry, normal pricing will resume in just a few days!

BoinxTV Plays Nice with Blackmagic Design ATEM Switchers

Puchheim, Germany – February 18, 2015BoinxTV is taking productions to the next level by fully integrating with production switchers from Blackmagic Design, including the ATEM Television Studio and ATEM Production Studio 4K. A plug-and-play broadcast production package, the Mac-based BoinxTV lets users combine live camera video, clips, photos, 3D graphics, lower thirds and audio to create recordings and stream live presentations, podcasts, concerts, sporting events and more.

The new integration, which is made possible by the Blackmagic Design ATEM SDK, lets users control the ATEM switcher directly within BoinxTV, expanding the number of switchable video inputs users can control from their BoinxTV setup to eight. The integration also allows BoinxTV to offload to the ATEM the computing power required to switch between multiple sources. As a result, the overall production performance is greatly improved, enabling higher resolutions and better graphics for existing BoinxTV users looking to push productions beyond their current capabilities. Conversely, ATEM users are now able to expand the graphics and titling power of their production setup by adding BoinxTV to their workflows.

Many customers have asked us if there is a graphics solution to interface directly with Blackmagic Design’s switchers – so we built one,” comments Bastian Wölfle, Boinx Software’s video expert. “Using the ATEM SDK, we were able to replicate almost the exact same control surface functionality as seen in Blackmagic Design’s ATEM Software Control into BoinxTV, eliminating the need for a separate ATEM controller console. This also offloads a great deal of heavy-lifting onto the Blackmagic Design switcher, giving BoinxTV users vastly improved computing power, which means a faster workflow and more powerful graphics.

To sync an ATEM switcher with BoinxTV, broadcasters simply set up the switcher with their various camera inputs, then feed the program and multiview (optional but recommended) outputs through an HDMI or SDI capture device, such as a Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder (recommended by Boinx), into the computer running BoinxTV. Just a few additional simple steps and users will be off and broadcasting. Watch the full tutorial here.

The new ATEM controls that can be integrated into BoinxTV, using an add-on layer, will appear familiar to anyone who has already used Blackmagic Design’s ATEM Software Control. After setting any custom presets, such as transitions, in the Blackmagic Design software, users can exit out and manage all controls directly from the BoinxTV interface. They can easily set keyboard controls, determining cuts and transitions with simple keystrokes.

Technical Requirements BoinxTV with integrated BoinxTV ATEM Controller requires a Mac running OS X 10.8 or newer, plus one HDMI or SDI capture device for the ATEM program and one capture device for the ATEM multiview output. Recommended: 2x Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder + Thunderbolt Cables. Learn more here.

BoinxTV is compatible with all Blackmagic Design ATEM switchers – ATEM Television Studio, ATEM Production Studio 4K (1 M/E and 2 M/E models) – and supports the first eight inputs. Customers requiring more than eight camera inputs can request extended BoinxTV support by contacting Boinx Software directly at sales@boinx.com.

Furthermore the BoinxTV ATEM Controller requires BoinxTV 1.9.10 or newer.

Pricing and Availability The BoinxTV ATEM Controller can be downloaded from the Boinx FastSpring store for 99.99 USD (http://boinx.com/boinxtv/buy/).

Press Review Kits Members of the media are invited to review the BoinxTV ATEM Controller. Please note that interested reviewers must have access to an ATEM Switcher device. For more information, please contact Anya Oskolkova at anya@zazilmediagroup.com.

Boinx Joins the 4K Revolution With FotoMagico 4.5

Puchheim, Germany – September 15, 2014 – 4K is rapidly making inroads in professional video production, and Boinx Software is not one to miss the trend. The recently released FotoMagico 4.5, the newest version of the award-winning slideshow creation tool from Boinx, is now optimized for the production of 4K video. FotoMagico 4.5 also takes full advantage of modernized OS X features, providing improvements in performance and stability to better facilitate user creativity.

John Woody – filmmaker, professor emeritus at James Madison University, and Apple Distinguished Educator – comments on the ability to use 4K in his FotoMagico workflow: “To me, the greatest strength of FotoMagico when using 4K clips and stills is its ability to quickly preview special scaling animations. I use it for both pre-visualization and online production. The software fits my 4K workflow perfectly!

It’s clear that the move to 4K is fast underway, with the number of 4K UHD TV sets shipping in 2014 already far surpassing those shipped in the whole of 2013, according to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Global TV Shipment and Forecast Report.

For this release, we optimized FotoMagico for use with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and 10.9 (Mavericks), and prepared for 10.10 (Yosemite),” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Using modernized functionality of OS X leads to better performance and reliability, as well as reduces complexity, which means fewer bugs. The vast majority of FotoMagico users are already using current OS X versions and will benefit from these updates.

See Boinx Software at photokina 2014

Becoming a regular on photokinaTV powered by FotoTV, Boinx will again be making an appearance on this year’s show broadcast. Not only will the production be run using BoinxTV, but Boinx’s video guru Bastian Wölfe (AKA Dr. Term T. Bowman Ph.D.) will be joining the crew to present FotoMagico 4.5. Check out last year’s broadcast for a sneak peek of what to expect from the presentation.

Gear Up to Go Back to School with Discounts on Boinx Software’s Award-Winning Educational Apps

End of summer promotions on Mac and iOS apps from Boinx help you get back-to-school cool; an Editor’s Choice Award for iStopMotion for iPad proves it’s an A+ app

Puchheim, Germany – August 20, 2014 – With lazy summer days coming to a close, it’s time to step up the game again and prepare for the start of the coming school year. This year promises to be one to remember, and Boinx Software’s family of award-winning educational apps for Mac and iPad will be by your side in the classroom to create cool stuff and foster essential life skills. Helping both students and teachers to get their creative juices flowing more powerfully than ever before, Boinx is offering special promotions on BoinxTV, iStopMotion for iPad and Mac, FotoMagico and Mouseposé now through September 9th, making them a must-have on everyone’s back-to-school shopping list.

Film a stop motion animation illustrating stories from a foreign language class or record a timelapse of storm clouds forming above your town, start a weekly school news broadcast, compile a slideshow presentation with animations, video and funky transitions that will leave powerpoints in the dust, and let Mouseposé point it all out to your teachers and classmates - the possibilities for accelerating your learning experience are endless.

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of fun. With the change in seasons and return of the school year comes new creative possibilities,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Limited-time cost savings on our educational apps have made the barrier of entry extremely low for kids and educators, allowing them to let their imaginations run wild with their devices.

iStopMotion for iPad is the Teacher’s Pet

Boinx Software’s tried and true products continue to receive industry accolades; most recently, Children’s Technology Review awarded Boinx with their esteemed Editor’s Choice Award for iStopMotion for iPad. According to Children’s Technology Review, the Editor's Choice Award is given to only the highest-quality children’s products in the interactive media category – “no fail” products, worthy of their cost, that are able to keep children engaged for days at a time.

Ride the Wave of Summer Savings Before It’s Too Late!

iStopMotion for iPad just 8.99 USD (10% off)

iStopMotion for iPad brings the classic stop motion animation technique into the modern age, allowing eager animators to create fun animations with just an iPad, imagination and whatever is lying around the classroom ready to come to life. In its review of the app, Children’s Technology Review says, “Every aspiring Walt Disney should have an app for iPad like iStopMotion, the king of the hill of animation software.

iStopMotion 3 for Mac just 44.99 USD (10% off)

The parent to iStopMotion for iPad, iStopMotion for Mac comes with advanced capabilities, while still being an accessible filmmaking tool for the masses. Boinx recently announced iStopMotion 3.6, which brings live view support for Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras, allowing animators with these cameras to enjoy the most popular feature, Onion Skinning. The creative classroom possibilities are endless – animate an otherwise boring diorama, make claymations in art class or animate figurines in a historical reenactment. Ben Lawson from Byte Revel noted its ease of use in a recent review, saying, “iStopMotion 3 for Mac makes stop motion animation a breeze.

FotoMagico 4 just 89.99 USD (10% off)

A fan favorite among both professional photographers and consumers, FotoMagico helps users organize summer memories into a stylish slideshow to look back on throughout the year, when laid-back pool days and cookouts are a fond and distant memory. The slideshow innovation doesn’t have to stop when school starts, though. FotoMagico is the perfect software for class projects. As Dan Cohen from Gear Diary sums it up in a recent review, “While the software is simple, it is also powerful enough for people who want and need more complexity.

BoinxTV just 199.99 USD (a savings of 300 USD!)

The popular “broadcast truck without the truck” brings studio broadcast-quality production to consumers of all skill levels, allowing kids and school administrators to learn in a completely unique way. Get inspired by how Gustavo Reis uses BoinxTV to compliment learning at the school he opened, Mathematica Et Cetera, producing the weekly live “Math Happy Hour” at the old dentist’s office he transformed into a broadcast studio.

Mouseposé – FREE with any purchase!

Give presentations the spotlight they deserve! Mouseposé is the perfect tool to accompany your work. This nifty tool from Boinx dims the computer screen and puts a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audience’s attention to an area of interest. Attention spans are short those first few weeks of the school year - Mouseposé helps teachers and students both to get right to the point!

Get the Party Started, Support the PartySnapper Indiegogo Campaign

Puchheim, Germany – June 24, 2014 –Much app, very party, wow!” These are just some of the comments Doge made when he heard about Boinx Software’s latest endeavor: an Indiegogo campaign to launch PartySnapper. A social photo wall on steroids, PartySnapper is (or will be, with the help of generous backers) an iOS app that will truly wow party-goers around the world. To make PartySnapper a reality, Boinx has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $20,000.

PartySnapper has both a photo-taking mode for attendees and a mode for hosting parties. Every guest at a party takes tons of pictures with their iPhones. PartySnapper transmits these instantly to the host’s iPad or iPhone wirelessly, where all the photos are collected then displayed as a beautiful slideshow that plays on a TV or projector via AirPlay or cable. At the end of the party, there’s no need to ask the guests to send in their photos – they’ve already been aggregated on the host’s device. The app is super easy to use; hosts and party-goers alike should both be able to use it, even at the end of a long night of partying.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z923p5A8YSk">Bastian Wölfle (AKA Dr. Term T. Bowman Ph.D.) came up with the original concept for PartySnapper while planning his wedding a few years ago. “From the day we started planning in 2011, I knew I wanted to do something geeky, being the geek I am. I thought about the old disposable cameras you see at many weddings and thought it was a cool idea, but it takes days until you see the pictures, and I wanted everyone to be able to see them at the wedding.

I figured it would be cool if, the moment our guests snapped a picture, it would be transferred and automatically displayed,” he continues. Bastian was able to hack together a temporary solution, but this was far too complicated to become a thing. After months of politely requesting (read: begging) the Boinx team to build an easy-to-use app that would not require a degree in computer science, the developers finally gave in. “Luckily a couple of the guys were at my wedding so they could see and how much people loved the slideshow. I like to tell myself that this convinced them PartySnapper is a great app that entertains guests and works easily.

We have been toying around with this app idea for a long time - once Bastian persuaded us to develop it, of course. But making a great app takes a lot of effort and more often than not, an app is not appreciated by users enough to pay the developer back,” states Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “In fact, development, design and marketing will take about three times more than the $20,000 campaign goal. But we are prepared to match every dollar with two of our own to make PartySnapper a reality, if backers also think this is a great idea.

The PartySnapper Design Team The Boinx Software team knows how to make great photo and video apps. Their stop motion app “iStopMotion” won the “Macworld Best of Show” award two years in a row. Other quality apps from Boinx Software include “You Gotta See This!” and “PhotoPresenter.” On the Mac side, Boinx has three Apple Design Awards to our credit, recognizing excellence in designing apps that reflect Apple’s values in design and usability. Meet the core four developers responsible for PartySnapper:

Peter Kraml: This whiz kid came close to winning his own Apple Design Award last year, being recognized as one of the best student developers at the Apple World Wide Developers Conference 2013 where he went on a student scholarship awarded to him by Apple.

Max Christ: The apps that owe him their existence go into the hundreds. Most recently, he was the driving force behind the Leica T app that we developed in cooperation with Leica.

Peter Schlossnikel: His signature design graces all of the Boinx products, our website and other top selling apps on the app store.

Kerstin Wölfle: If she hadn’t allowed her husband Bastian (aka Dr. Term T. Bowman) to create and try a prototype of PartySnapper at their wedding, it wouldn’t exist. Bastian is also PartySnapper product manager.

These four are supported by the amazing Boinx Software staff. Check out our Team page for the full cast and crew.

Clean Up Your Sandbox

Puchheim, Germany – April 10, 2013 – No one likes a dirty sandbox, and no one likes when their Mac crashes. Solve both of these problems with Boinx Software’s brand new SandboxCleaner, a new utility app that will leave Mac’s nationwide running smooth as ever. When QuickTime components are incompatible with OS X sandboxing, problems, like crashing, with many popular video and photo apps ensue. SandboxCleaner helps users find and disable these components, nipping problems in the bud and keeping your system up and running without a hitch.

"Our users were experiencing baffling crashes with FotoMagico and iStopMotion," recalls Oliver Breidenbach, founder and CEO at Boinx Software. "It took us quite a while to figure out what was wrong. When we finally identified the issue, we realized the only way to deal with it was to scan for problematic components and provide the user with suggestions on how to resolve these issues. We spent months collating data regarding issues with outdated or incompatible QuickTime components reported by our users. Now, users can perform scans with SandboxCleaner to clean up their Macs, making their lives a whole lot easier. These problems affect all sandboxed video and photo apps – not just ours – so we decided to provide this troubleshooting utility to all Mac users."

Once SandboxCleaner detects a component known to cause problems, it helps the user figure out what to do. In some cases, it will tell the user if the vendor of the component is offering an update, which will resolve the issue once installed. Other times, it is best to uninstall the component using the Finder. An FAQ on the SandboxCleaner web page explains to users how to temporarily disable these problematic components. Then, the user should contact the corresponding vendor for further information. If you know of components that cause issues but are not reported or are experiencing any other problems with SandboxCleaner, simply notify Boinx via the Feedback Assistant. Everyone with a Mac running OS X 10.8 or higher should run SandboxCleaner.

Be a Pal - Help Friends Keep Their Sandboxes Clean, Too!

Incompatible QuickTime components are a widespread problem. Many of your friends will experience the same or even worse problems than you. Unkempt sandboxes can lead to frustration – and no one wants a grumpy friend around! Be your friend’s hero by letting them know about SandboxCleaner using the built-in Twitter, Facebook and email sharing link.

SandboxCleaner Pricing and Availability

SandboxCleaner is available now for FREE via the Mac App Store.
