Groovebook - something new for smartphone photos

Postby brothers » Thu Dec 17, 2015 6:04 am

This isn't a high tech photography product. Just the opposite. It was a huge hit on SharkTank and is an example of an app that makes sense for those hundreds of millions of us who take pictures of anything and everything with our smartphones. For around $4 per month, it asks the user to download up to 100 photos and within a few days, the user receives a booklet containing prints of all the designated photos. It works. In my case, I seldom rack up that many pictures, but I could easily do it with all these little grandkids and stuff. It's as easy as pie. They automatically debit the user's designated account every month unless the user cancels the subscription at any time.

I'll just forward the shots directly and bypass the middle man.

ive seen some of these books, and while forwarding pics goes without saying, sometimes you want to put together a nice 'gift' of photos.

FYI....

Husband-and-wife team Brian and Julie Whiteman came into the tank in Season 3 to present GrooveBook, a digital-photo subscription service. For $2.99 a month, users get a bound book of high-resolution photos they took with their smartphones. The founders made a deal with Cuban and O'Leary for $150,000 in exchange for 80% of licensing profits, with O'Leary taking the lead advisory role.

Not only did the Whitemans gain 50,000 subscribers shortly after the premiere of their episode, but last November, the publicly traded company Shutterfly bought GrooveBook for $14.5 million.
