Hula 2018 New Year's Eve Wrap Up and What’s In Store for 2019

Well, it is New Year’s Eve (in Melbourne, Australia at least), so what a better time than now to provide a wrap up of what we’ve achieved for the year and what we’ve got in store for 2019.

2018

Here’s our summary of the year that’s just been. It doesn’t seem like much put into dot points below, but each one of these has been the result of a lot of work by the team.

  • January - Hula Booth released for beta testing.
  • January - We exhibit at BoothCon 2018 in Sydney and sponsor the after party.
  • March - Hula Booth is released on the App Store.
  • March - We sponsor and exhibit at the Photo Booth Expo in Las Vegas.
  • April - Custom app branding (logo, colours and text) update released.
  • April - Email auto complete (e.g. when type @g, suggest @gmail.com) for sharing released.
  • July - Text message (SMS) sharing released.
  • July - Event data report (with all sharing details) released.
  • August - Huge improvements to Burst GIF mode released.
  • August - Super simple email white labelling update released.
  • September - File picker for overlays released for easy selecting of overlays via cloud storage.
  • October - We sponsor the Photo Booth Show UK.
  • October - BCC mode released for email sharing (so you can integrate with services such as Zapier).
  • October - AirDrop sharing released for quick & easy sharing for iOS devices.
  • December - Still image photo mode released.
  • December - Multiple photo mode released (run stills, GIFs and Bursts on the same event).
  • December - Cloudgate (Hula Booth is cloud-less so ran perfectly)
  • December - We move into a new office to house the team (in leafy Kew, Melbourne, Australia).

2019

We are excited for 2019 as we’ve got so much on the agenda. We won’t mention everything here  as things may change - but here is a summary of what we’ve confirmed is coming.

Photo Booth Events
  • BoothCon 2019 Melbourne.
  • Photo Booth Expo 2019 Las Vegas.
  • Photo Booth Show Europe (to be confirmed, pending confirmation of dates).
