Last night I had an app update to my Shutterfly app and I can’t tell you how excited I was once I opened the app. I just had to post about all the changes that have occurred since my app review a few Tuesdays ago. You can find my previous app review here about Shutterfly.
The biggest change is that now you can order prints directly from your phone!!! And drum roll please you can now order 4×4 prints and from your phone can I get a Hallelijah!!! I am so excited about this! It seems that at this time you can only order 4×4 prints from your phone and the option is not available on the actual site. I’m still excited about the 4×4 prints though!
The app has been completely revamped and does not look at all like it used to.
As you can see there are tons of options right from the start. You can now order prints, order photo gifts, and order panorama prints. The print sizes that you can order are 4×4 ($.25), 4×6 ($.15), 5×7 ($.99) and 8×8 ($2.99). The photo gifts that you can order are an iPhone 5 case, a 5×7 desktop plaque and an 11 0z. ceramic mug. Panorama prints are 8×32 and are ($12.99). These are all your ordering options from the app there are more options on their site and I do not see the option to order 4×4 or 8×8 sizes on their actual site.
You can access all your albums directly from the app. You can access your shutterfly albums, the albums on your phone, your Facebook albums and your Instagram. This is new because the option to access Facebook and Instagram was not available on the old app.
When you are going to order prints you are going to choose your print size first and then choose where you want to access your photos from. If you choose Facebook or Instagram you are going to have to give the Shutterfly app permission to log into your Facebook and Instagram profiles.
You can also upload your photos just like in the old app and the app tells you how many new photos are available on your phone that need to be uploaded as well as you can access all your albums that are on your phone.
You have all types of settings that you have to be aware of now. You can view your cart and new photos. You can log out of Shutterfly, Facebook and Instagram from this part of the app. This is also the area will you will get all the information that you need about the app. You can see your orders that you have ordered from your cell phone as well as orders that you haveplaced from their actual site. You can send an email to Shutterfly by clicking on support and feedback and you can see all the products and there pricing by clicking on products and prices. You can share the app to your social media outlets and of course you have the about Shutterfly tab. There is also a how it works tab that tells you about the changes to the app such as now you can order prints and gifts.
That is pretty much it the biggest change to the app is that now you can order prints and gifts directly from the app. I am really excited about this, especially the new sizes. One drawback that I see is that there does not seem to be an area where you can add coupon codes. I am always using coupons with my Shutterfly orders because I order in bulk so I will have to be aware of how many prints I am ordering because at this time there are no options to add my coupon codes.
All in all I think Shutterfly did a great job with updating their app! So if you don’t already have a Shutterfly account now would be a good time to get one!
