About the BeFunky Photo Booth
The customized photo booth was unveiled for the first time just a few months back after teams in three countries, six cities, and over a dozen people created it. The finished product is the result of a collaborative effort involving teams from across the globe. Incorporated into the photo booth is an interactive application that allows users to choose from a range of signature BeFunky effects. The effects were hand selected by the BeFunky team from the over 200 they offer through their applications for phones and tablets on iOS and Android platforms, and the BeFunky website
