If you want to build a photo book using your smartphone or other mobile devices, there are a number of tools out there specially designed for doing this. Apps like Mosaic, Shutterfly, and Printic are just some of the photo book builders applications available on the internet. If you are not completely satisfied with these apps or you simply want to try out something new, the PastBook app is the one for you, if you are an iPhone user, that is.
Most of the photo book apps share similar features: you have the option to select the photos from your social networks or from your phone gallery, customize the order and the layout, then you checkout and place your order. The new PastBook app offers a couple of different tools with its service. Firstly, besides letting you ad photos from Facebook or from your iPhone’s Camera roll, you have the option to invite your family and friends to add photos to an album, too. You can do this by sending them a private link in a text message, email, on Facebook, Twitter or even via a QR code.
After you create the album PastBook app also gives you the possibility to share that album privately via a link or you can even download the album as an e-book, in PDF format. This is a cool option, especially for users who just want a casual album, like for a school project or to give it to a friend as a nice gift.
If you want a more professional looking photo album you can make a 24 page book for $19, free shipping everywhere included. The PastBook app also gives you the option to print large photo books up to 500 pages for $92. This means approximately 1000 photos for album.
PastBook app – design and other features
The app looks modern and has a minimalist design, although the fonts are a little too small and it’s sometimes difficult to see it on the iPhone screen. Other than that, it’s an easy to use app, it lets you rotate the photos quickly, delete them or set different pictures as the cover of your album. If you want to purchase the photo albums you can pay via PayPal or by typing you credit card info. All in all, the PastBook app is fun and easy to use and can easily compete with other photo book tools available at the moment.
