WiFi Booth for iPhone, iPod, and Apple Watch

WiFi Booth is a photobooth app which connects to cameras & printers for an awesome photobooth experience.

Use your iPhone/iPod to control the iPad

WiFi Booth runs the photobooth from the iPad, and can be remotely controlled by running WiFi Booth on an iPhone, iPod, or Apple Watch with iOS 8.1 or newer. Sorry, there’s no Android version available yet.

Using your iPhone/iPod/Apple Watch, you can:

  • Trigger the camera (take a photo)
  • Download your photos
  • Get the Dropbox link (if this feature has been enabled on the iPad)

Connecting your iPhone / iPod / Watch to the iPad

When you first start WiFi Booth on your iPhone/iPad/Watch, it will immediately start trying to connect to WiFi Booth on an iPad. It uses bluetooth to connect, so bluetooth must be turned on. You will see a warning if bluetooth is not turned on, in which case turn it on by swiping up from below the screen, and touching the Bluetooth button:

You don’t need to connect bluetooth or wi-fi to anything, or enter any information — connection is automatic. If you cannot connect, try moving closer to the iPad as the range of Bluetooth can be limited by radio interference.

Press the Button to take a Photo!

Once connected, press the big red button in the middle of the screen to instruct the iPad to take a photo.

Downloading your Photos

You can only download photos that were taken when you triggered the camera with your iPhone/iPod/Watch:

  1. After you trigger a photo, it is sent to your iPhone/iPod/Watch immediately afterwards
  2. If you want to keep the photo, you must hit “Save” in the top-right corner of the image-preview:

If you don’t hit Save, the photo is deleted from your iPhone/iPod when you leave this screen; the photo is still available on the iPad. 

On your iPhone/iPod, Photos are saved to the Camera Roll. To get to them, open the Apple Photos app and look for an album called WiFi Booth.

If you are using the Apple Watch, please note that Photos are only saved on your iPhone (not on the Watch). If you experience problems with the Watch, please make sure your first use the iPhone to take & save one photo before trying the Watch again.

Getting Dropbox Photos

If the iPad has been configured to upload photos to Dropbox, then after connecting you’ll see a Dropbox button at the bottom of the iPhone/iPod screen where the camera button is. Touch this to open the Dropbox folder for your event.
