Wow! I really admire people who can think of new and innovative ways to integrate technology use into people’s daily lives. With a fairly new love of all things iPhone and iPad related (in the countdown for my new iPad now!), I love it when I come across an app that is perfectly designed to either make life easier, prettier or just that little bit more fun.
Appy Couple is a funky little project where couples can create and personalise their own iPhone and iPad app. When you create your app, you also create a unique website. And the best thing is? It’s simple, easy and soooo much fun.
Be as cute and pretty as you want – with many different styles and themes to choose from you are bound to find one that suits you and your partner, as well as the look of your day. With features like “our story” where you can let your guests know everything about how you guys met, the proposal and your lives together, and “games” where guests can see how quickly they can put you two together (a tile game), your guests can feel a part of the day even before they’re there. And if all that wasn’t enough, you can keep your registry information within the app, let everyone now who is on your bridal party and have guest RSVP right through their phone.
And the steps are as easy as:
Get out there and enjoy!
Ok, I’m sold. I downloaded Instagram a while ago and tried using it but somehow or for some reason I forgot I had it. Until about two months ago. There it was sitting innocuously in my “photography” iPhone app folder, all innocent and neglected. I fired it up and fell in love with it all over again.
My love for it was furthered when I found this list of things that can be done with the instagram pics. Now they no longer have to stay in your phone locked away for ever! With Printstagram you can even turn up to 400 pics into a large wall poster (that can be framed too).
So…it got me to thinking. What if, instead of the traditional disposable/digital camera per table with a set of instructions about what you’d like to have candid pictures of, you had info popped up somewhere informing your guests that you’d love for them to take you some Instagram pics. Tell them how to download Instagram (never fear, the ubiquitous iPhone will make an appearance at nearly every table, if not every seat) and adding you or your groom’s Instagram details so that your guests can follow you. That way, they can take a series of pics that you’ll get to experience later – and eventually turn into a work of art!
