Hula Booth vs.

Simple Booth Event Edition

An alternative to Simple Booth Classic

Hula Booth and Simple Booth Classicย are both iPad based photo booth apps available on the App Store.

Letโ€™s look at both apps to see how they are different.

Overview

Simple Booth Classicย is a one-time purchase app, whereas Hula Booth Pro is subscription-based at a competitive price.

Hula Booth Pro offers complete access to all features at a much lower price point than Simple Booth's cheapest plan. Although Simple Booth offers more advanced features such as digital props and attract screens (which we're working on), Hula Booth is competitive and comparable in all other fields.

The Cloud's awesome. Until someoneโ€™s server crashes and you canโ€™t run your event anymore. Luckily, we donโ€™t rely on the cloud. Use your own email server and text messaging service to keep the show running.
