Tapsbook is entering a very crowded photo sharing space, but offers four key differentiators that together will provide a user with a unique experience that can’t be found among their competitors.
• Automatic discovery and building of stories:
๏ TAPSBOOK: Tapsbook automatically pulls in photos from multiple sources (more to come in future updates) and organizes them into beautiful stories – no manual actions required. Beta users summarized one of the key reasons they liked Tapsbook: “automation, automation, automation”
๏ COMPETITORS: Many apps in the market offer automation, but focus on individual photos versus storytelling. Existing photo book apps either require manual organization, are not optimized for tablets, or only import from one or two sources.
• Beautiful customizable story pages:
๏ TAPSBOOK: Tapsbook presents users with the best of both worlds: the ability to enjoy the auto-created attractive photo stories as-is or to add a personal touch to them. Users can customize the pages to their liking including backgrounds, layouts, add text to document the stories
behind the photos, and add filters to their photos; they can get creative and design their own layout by repositioning/rotating the photos and text. Beta users have repeatedly asked us to provide printing option (coming soon) as an extension to the app – a clear sign that they like the output.
๏ COMPETITORS: Most mobile photo apps present photos in dull photo grids that are not meaningful, while photo book apps confine users to preset cookie cutter templates that allow no creativity and limited customization such as adding/removing stickers.
• Instant sharing and auto-updates:
๏ TAPSBOOK: The photo stories can be shared with family and friends by page or in its entirety with one-tap sharing to Facebook or email via a simple link. Recipients of a shared book can view it instantly since there is no big file to download, and are able to enjoy built in social features like commenting and liking. Once a book has been shared, any changes made to the original book will automatically be reflected in the shared book as well.
๏ COMPETITORS: Very few mobile apps allow sharing of entire photo books. Those that do typically impose a page limit and require uploading and/or downloading time. There are currently no photo book apps in the market that create dynamic books which auto-updates, including the shared ones – Tapsbook is the first.
• Innovative user experience of curating photos:
๏ TAPSBOOK: Tapsbook reimagined the photo curating experience on mobile to be easy, fast, and fun – quickly swipe photos to favorite or trash, drag and drop photos to create new stories, or like photos to add to “Best of the Year” book. Beta users called this aspect: “Insanely addictive.”
๏ COMPETITORS: No other mobile apps allow you to go through hundreds of photos so quickly and intuitively, and working on a PC requires keyboard and mouse.
In addition to the mentioned differentiators, we are continuously working on new features to ensure Tapsbook is the best visual storytelling app for consumers and businesses alike so download our app here and experience firsthand how unique the app is! Leave a comment and let us know your thoughts.
