“Social media is an exciting and entertaining part of today’s world and our Smile 2.0 software brings it right inside the photo booth,” explained Apple’s CEO Allen Weisberg at IAAPA. “All of our photo booths, except the single-purpose Magazine Me, will feature our new Smile 2.0 platform and touch screen technology, and we anticipate this new platform attracting new locations and increasing revenue, particularly with the younger audience.”Smile 2.0 allows customers to e-mail their photos, as well as post them on Facebook or tweet them, instantly and directly from Apple’s photo booths, which can connect through hard-wire, air card or wi-fi. The photo booths also include functionality for creating audio/video recordings that can be uploaded and the ability to capture email addresses for marketing purposes.
Additionally, the new software has functionality that will help operators manage their business better. Operators will be able to access their machines remotely, which will allow them to audit collections, change booth settings, verify film supplies, and conduct other booth maintenance. “What’s incredibly cool about Smile 2.0,” explains Apple’s Sales Director Mel LaForce, “is that we can upload software updates directly, so operators will not have to do anything to get the latest and greatest software from Apple.”
Apple‘s President, Warren Friss, added “Smile 2.0 is only the beginning. Smile 2.1 and Smile 2.2, already being worked on, will provide operators with additional amazing technology, all downloadable directly to their booths. We will continue to upgrade and improve our products to ensure that our photo booths remain the most fun and profitable in the business.”
