Hula's First Birthday!

It's Hula's first birthday! Here's a summary of what we've done in the past year and what you can expect in the future.

One year ago today, Hula Booth officially launched on the App Store - so we’re counting this as our first birthday!

If you haven’t been around since the start, you may not know just how far we’ve come in the past year. Hula Booth originally started as a fairly basic photo booth app which only supported GIFs and email sharing.

Since then, the app has grown enormously and we’ve added:

  • SMS and AirDrop sharing
  • Customisable app branding
  • AirPrint
  • Event data reports
  • Improved Burst GIF mode
  • Print ratio (6x4”)
  • Full background queue
  • Still Images mode
  • The ability to use multiple image modes in the one event
  • Microsites

We listen to every bit of feedback our users give us, and now that the fundamentals of the app are up to scratch, our developers are working hard to bring you some more fun features over the next year including:

  • Attract screens
  • Digital props
  • Photo strips
  • Color filters
  • Animated overlays

These updates for the Booth app aren’t the only exciting things that have happened for Hula in the past year.

In February 2019, we also released our new app, Hula Gallery. This allows photo booth owners to create galleries which can be seamlessly linked with Hula Booth (or used separately) for image hosting and social sharing. Galleries can be made private, password protected, downloaded in full, and images can be watermarked.

You can sign up for it here and get a month's free trial of the Pro version. After that, it’s just $20 per month or $200 per year.

As always, if you have any suggestions or feedback we’d love to hear it. Otherwise, we hope you’re as excited as we are for what’s in store for the next year!
