When it comes to having physical photos in your hand, there is no more trusted a brand in the world than Kodak. After the transition to digital photography and the movement away from film, My Kodak Moments is the latest breach from the company into the digital imaging space, with a free mobile app to bridge the gap between your smart phone and the physical world.
Regardless of what anyone will tell you, there is nothing better than looking at an actual photo. There is an immediacy of flicking a page that a tablet can not achieve and there is an intimacy that is lacking when looking at things through pixels. Of course, with everyone shooting digitally, the challenge becomes moving images from the virtual to the physical space. There are of course plenty of Kodak kiosks in shops, but at the end of the day, if our smart phone is becoming our primary camera, why are two computer interfaces necessary?
My KODAC Moments is a great solution, giving you the full power of Kodak kiosk, from your phone. No longer is it necessary to stand for hours in a crowded store to create your perfect photo book. Instead, you can do it from the convenience of your phone- for free! You can create and order pictures, pickup in the store on the same day or have the images mailed to your house, create greeting cards and choose from a variety of print sizes. If the physical world is not for you, then the Tell My Story feature is a great feature, allowing you to bundle together three images, lay over a voice track, then share the creation across social networks. A really great feature for the socially minded!
All in all, this is an excellent, free android app. Check it out!
In the words of the developer:
It’s fast and easy to make prints, photo books, greeting cards and more anytime, anywhere right from your smartphone with the My KODAK MOMENTS app! And the new Tell My Story feature lets you create and share short, three-picture videos with your voice-over.
