Hula Booth vs.

iPix

An alternative to iPix

iPix is a name we often hear in the photo booth community, so we decided to see what it’s all about.

This comparison was started on the 5th of April, 2019. A week later, the website (along with all details surrounding the app) had been taken down and replaced with a page where you can sign up to a waitlist to get notified when the app is released again.

We try to make all comparisons to Hula Booth Pro fair, but we don’t want to wait for another couple of years for their app to be released to the market. Any comparison that has been made for iPix without the use of a question mark was done on the 5th of April - we can’t guarantee that the newer version will have these features.

Overview

Babeland has three tiers of subscription packages (Standard, Premium, Enterprise) so for the most accurate comparison, we’ve chosen the plan which provides users access to all the app’s features - the same as Hula Booth Pro.

Where Babeland stands apart from Hula Booth is its offering of a green screen feature, however, the limitations placed on users with regards to storage of images, camera control and inability to function offline has Hula Booth placed as the clear (unbiased) winner in our eyes!

Out of its Beta Stage

Hula Booth’s beta version was released in January 2018, which at that point was an incredibly basic app. Only two months later, we released Hula to the public. This has allowed us to gather user suggestions and implement them in Hula Booth, to make the app better for you. iPix has released their beta version too many times to count, only for it to be removed again - even their users can’t keep up.

Email Sharing

On Hula Booth you can connect your custom SMTP server and fully customize your email, from text and subject, to reply-to email address and “from” name. Alternatively, you can use our great email servers and still supply your own “from” name and reply-to address.

😀

SMS Sharing

Both apps are BYO SMS provider. iPix allows you to connect Twilio, and Hula Booth lets you connect Twilio or Messagebird.

Attract Screens

iPix offers pre-designed attract screens which are customizable to your liking, or you can upload your own. Hula Booth does not have this feature yet - it’s set to be released in 2019.

🙂

White Labelling

Almost all of Hula Booth is customizable. Change your colours and logo, and customize your text, emails and SMS.

😀

Cloudless

Hula Booth doesn’t rely on any of its own cloud servers. If one of the big names like Dropbox or OneDrive goes down, there’s always a backup solution. Even with no internet, images can still save to the device and AirDrop sharing will still function.

😀

Printing

AirPrint is available for users of both apps. iPix also offer a printing program exclusive to their brand which requires a Windows computer - you can set up printing automation with Hula Booth too.

🙂

Data Capture and Analytics

With both apps, you can capture email addresses and mobile numbers that were used for sharing, as well as data from events such as the number of sessions.

😀

Camera Control

Both apps allow you to control the cameras ISO, white balance and shutter speeds.

iPix offers a green screen feature for animated images and stills. Hula Booth has a feature coming soon that requires no green screen, but that can change the background of all still images.

Full Support

Hula Booth offers full support for all users. As iPix is still in beta, their support for users is unknown.
