QuikPrints: The company added a super-fast order flow just for prints. Users can pick an entire folder or date range of photos, order reprints of some of them, and add-to-cart in a single step.
Collage: Support for “Multi-Photo Single-Surface” (MPSS) products (like collage posters) are now baked into the mobile platform with added support of multi-page variants (like photo strips). Creating wall art with multiple photos has always been popular even before Instagram, but creating such products was not easy for consumers and producers alike. Photobook.ai ensured the collages are algorithmically calculated, so all kinds of wall-art dimensions and shapes are supported.
Framed photos: are now also supported. We upgraded the architecture to be able to easily define such products from our product configurator. Now you can roll them out without updating to the client app. Framed photos allow users to pick frames with different colors and finish, and see them in our RealSense preview which will show the actual photo that users have ordered set in the frame of choice, mounted in a familiar scene like a living room, which shows the relative size of the product the user is ordering.
Non-printable products Now you can also sell photo accessories like frames, and picture hangers from the mobile app. All such products can be added into your product catalog easily and it will appear in the app clients upon next launch. All without the need to update the app.

It integrates the entire product capabilities of ORWONet, meaning future client-specific variants of their app will have easy access to all or some of those products.

Black’s Photo – Photobook.ai will soon go live with Black’s photo app in Canada. Blacks.ca is the most well-known photo printing site in Canada and is known for its quick and fast service. Blacks wanted a streamlined way for users to make photo books from the photos that are stuck on their mobile phones. Although they have a mobile responsive webstore and even an uploader app, uploading hundreds of photos through a web browser method on a mobile device is fraught with a multitude of problems. The initial release of the Blacks photo app will feature their three best sellers: their Softcover perfect bound books, hardcover PUR, and luxurious Layflat books.
