Tesco and PNI Launch New Tesco Photo Prints App for Android™

Printing Photos from Your Smartphone or Tablet Just Got Easier

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2013) - PNI Digital Media (TSX:PN)(OTCBB:PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company"), the leading innovator in online and in-store digital media solutions for retailers, and Tesco, the UK's leading consumer retail chain, announced the release of the new Tesco Photo Prints mobile app for Android. The new Tesco Photo Prints app is free and available today on Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pnimedia.android.photo.tesuk.

The new Tesco Photo Prints app has an adaptive user interface design that works seamlessly with both smartphones and tablets powered by the Android operating system. Tesco photo customers can easily upload pictures directly from their smartphone or tablet for printing and collection in as little as one hour from 120 participating Tesco photo centres nationwide. More Tesco stores will be added soon.

Seamlessly connected to the PNI Digital Media Platform and the Tesco Photo Centre at www.tescophoto.com, the Tesco Photo Prints app makes ordering 6" x 4" and 7" x 5" prints as easy as possible, geo-locating a customer's current location and instantly showing the nearest eligible Tesco store to collect their prints. Tesco customers can also search for a preferred Tesco location based on favorites or city search. A customer's favorite Tesco location is automatically saved for easy re-ordering.

For a wider range of products, images can be uploaded to an online account straight from the Tesco Photo Prints app. The user can then access these images at www.tescophoto.com (using the same log-in details) and order their favorite photos on a massive range of photo products including mugs, canvas prints, cards, bags and photo books. Tesco Photo customers can even have a photo printed on a vinyl skin that can stick onto the back of their phone or tablet. The Tesco Photo Prints app also includes the ability to:

  • Connect Tesco customers with their online photo albums at www.tescophoto.com, including seamlessly uploading and downloading photos between their mobile device and their online albums
  • View photo slideshows stored on a smartphone or tablet or from the Tesco Photo Centre online
  • Check the status of an order and see an entire order history of all photo orders placed on www.tescophoto.com
  • Use the handy store-finder feature to locate any Tesco Photo Centre offering the print service

"The number of photos being captured by camera-enabled smartphones and tablets continues to increase exponentially, and as such, offering apps that make it easy to order prints directly at any participating Tesco Online Photo Centre location is an important strategic initiative for PNI," said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media. "This latest addition to our mobile app portfolio is one in a series of innovations we are bringing to market to help PNI-powered retailers like Tesco offer photo print services whenever and wherever their customers want."
