Photoautomat (Free) by Stepcase is a simple photo booth app for your iPhone.
On launch, you’ll get a beautiful main screen that tries to mimic the actual photo booth experience. You’ll see a small preview of what the front-facing camera is seeing in the corner, with a preview of the different film styles used underneath this preview. Finished photo strips will be “delivered” into the box underneath the film styles, and on the right will be a curtain that you slide to take photos.
This was the part of the app that I did not care for too much. When you hit Start, there is no visual or audio indicator of when the app begins taking photos. You’ll only know when you see the first flash on the screen to indicate the first photo has been taken.
Another thing is the fact that there is little delay between snaps — I tried to quickly do a different pose, but sometimes the app would catch me blinking instead. This is frustrating for a photo booth app, especially when the competition have indicators and more delay in between shots so you have more time to prepare the next silly pose.
When you are done with the four shots, the app will deliver them to you in a photo strip. You can then save it or upload it to the Steply network, or go back and take another series of captures. Unfortunately, there is no way to share to another social network, such as Twitter or Facebook, directly from the app. I believe this is done to promote the Steply network.
Since Photoautomat is free, and the competition are paid apps, expect to see some ads. Fortunately, they only appear after a photo strip is done, so it won’t interfere with the actual photo-taking process.
I think for the time being, I will stick with Pocketbooth or Incredibooth for my photo booth needs. However, Photoautomat is free, so it’s still worth checking out — you get what you pay for, though. Photo Booth Oak Brook
