PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - Snapfish by HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced "Prints on the Go," a new feature on the Snapfish iPhone™ app that enables users to order prints directly from their iPhone and pick up their order at select retail locations.
"While taking photos with the iPhone camera is a great way to capture memories wherever you are, we know how important it is to many customers to be able to hold on to and share printed photos with friends and family as treasured keepsakes," said Helen Vaid, general manager, Snapfish by HP. "With the new Snapfish print-to-retail feature, we're making it easy and convenient to unlock and share those memories by giving our customers a convenient way to pickup prints in store."
Users can now easily place an order to print their photos from their Snapfish app for iPhone. All they need to do is log in to their Snapfish account or create a new one, place their print order and pay upon pickup at retail locations including Walmart and Walgreens.
Using location-based technology, the app automatically detects the nearest participating retail locations where users can pick up their 4-inch x 6-inch or 5-inch x 7-inch prints on the same day. The upgraded Snapfish iPhone app also makes it easier to browse and organize photos within an account.
The Snapfish app can be upgraded or downloaded at no additional cost at the Apple App Store and is supported by iOS 6. Snapfish app customers can save valuable phone storage space when using Snapfish albums, which offer instant uploads from the iPhone camera roll to safeguarded, unlimited photo storage.
