Why rent a photobooth when you can own one for a fraction of the price? Pocketbooth Party turns your iPad into a customizable DIY photo booth for your next holiday party, wedding, bar mitzvah, corporate event, birthday party, graduation party, or backyard gathering. Based on the award-winning Pocketbooth iPhone app, Pocketbooth Party is designed to be used with groups both large and small. Everything you need is included - no pesky in-app purchases. Simply download the app and you're ready to go!


Personalize Pocketbooth Party to complement your event with a selection of booth skins, photo filters, and custom text. Both the photobooth skin and the photos you take can incorporate a blurb of text you create.


If you have an AirPrint printer, photos can be automatically printed as you take them -- just like a real photobooth. You can also print photos after the fact from the Gallery. Or, if you'd prefer to order professionally-printed photos, there's an option for that as well. Order single prints or the entire set of photos from your event with the click of a button. Printed photos make for a great album or thank you notes for your guests.


All the photos taken can be automatically shared online so guests can view the photos from home, share them, and even order prints.


Once you've configured the booth to your liking, you can lock it down. Turning on Guided Access removes the configuration buttons from the interface and locks the app down so no one can fiddle with the settings or leave the app. This is especially useful if the app is running unattended.

You can pass the iPad around at your party, but we recommend finding a spot for it to live during your party. You can stand it up on a table or shelf, but the more industrious among you can mount the iPad on a wall or purchase a stand.

Use the Gallery sharing link to set up a viewing/sharing station on a separate iPad or computer. That keeps the line moving and ensures maximum participation.

How is Pocketbooth Party different from the Pocketbooth app?

Pocketbooth was designed to replicate the experience of sitting in a photobooth from the 1950s, and as such, most of the design decisions were guided and constrained by an effort to maintain the authenticity of old-school booths. With Pocketbooth Party we removed all those constraints and made design decisions based on what made the most sense in the context of a party or event. For example, photostrips created with Pocketbooth are oblong rectangles sized according to the historic size of strips. Turns out, those elongated strips are difficult to print due to their irregular shape. With Pocketbooth Party we wanted the photos to be printer-ready and as a result, they favor 4x6. We also know that at events, many guests sit for photos together and sometimes it is desirable to print photos 2-up, so a few of the formats are "double-strip" which results in two duplicate strips being printed.

Another important distinction between Pocketbooth and Pocketbooth Party is Pocketbooth Party's ability to hide all the controls when the iPad screen is locked (via Guided Access). This makes it a much better candidate to be used unattended at a party -- guests won't be tempted or able to visit other parts of the app, make changes to the settings, or mistakenly end up in another app.

Great. Wish I can add external camera

I have this app an it’s great for small gatherings but wish I can use my dslr or even my simple point an shoot camera instead of the iPad’s built in camera. If that option is available please let me know! If not, something to consider to make it perfect.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! We would love to add DSLR compatibility, but unfortunately the camera manufacturers and Apple don't make it easy. We keep our eyes on that space hoping that something will open up. Cheers!

This is a awesome app! I set my IPad up as a Selfie Photo Booth for my customers event and her guest loved it! It allowed the guest to take some great pictures and have a great time! I share the pictures on social media and everyone was amazed on how good the pictures came out! This app gives you so many options for parties and events! This app just enhance my ability to be a great DJ Entertainer!

Not worth the price

It is an ok app. I’m just not impressed on how it’s not very customizable. I would like it if I could add more than just a background color and one line of words to the final photo. I’ve used other apps where they are completely customizable when I can add a school logo to the photo strip or random images to make it fit for the occasion. Don’t think it’s worth the money I paid to get something so basic. I would like my money back.
