PNI Announces Launch of iOS Software Developer Kit

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 15, 2013) - PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN) (OTCQB:PNDMF), ("PNI" or "the Company") announced today that it has launched its new PNI Mobile Photo Software Developer Kit ("SDK"), offering any app developer the ability to add a full featured mobile photo application to their own mobile app and instantly interface with PNI's network of more than 20,000 leading retail print locations.

"Through the PNI Mobile Photo SDK, PNI is providing an industry leading full featured mobile photo application to developers who want to add photo ordering services to their apps and earn a commission on each order," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "With the launch of our SDK, developers now have a choice of either building out their own photo functionality and interfacing with PNI's proven Photo Services API to submit orders, or simply using the SDK to add turn-key functionality right in their app."

The SDK also plays an important role for retailers who want to get to market quickly with a mobile photo solution, as it can be quickly and easily integrated into their new retail master apps and comes ready with full functionality and workflows to submit orders for printing. For app developers and system integrators who are technology providers to retailers or ecommerce sites, this quick-deploy approach saves considerable time and resources and enables them to instantly leapfrog their apps into the vibrant retail photo print market.

The PNI Mobile Photo SDK is one of a series of technical innovations PNI is bringing to market to expand its web-to-store offerings. In conjunction with the Company's recent launch of its all-new PNI Photo Service Application Programming Interface (API), enabling any software developer or consumer product company to easily submit orders for retail printing and the forthcoming launch of PNI's new HTML5 builders for cards and invitations, the PNI Platform is helping retailers grow and expand their web-to-store opportunities. By focusing on quick-to-market strategies, retailers no longer need to adopt the entire PNI Platform to take advantage of the opportunity. The Company's modular, marketplace-centric approach to platform development enables retailers to pick and choose what particular solution they require and get to market quickly.

The PNI Mobile Photo SDK for iOS is available now. An Android OS edition will be available to developers before the 2013 holiday season.
