Bindle is an advanced version of the Text Here iOS application from Dahabaska. The new image editor for iPhone and iPad allows users to create a PDF file from edited pictures and share it.
There are situations when you need to present or explain something (a product on suddenly appointed meeting, an apartment to buyers, etc.) but you don't have enough time to prepare a proper presentation. The Client came up with the idea of a simple and intuitive mobile tool for instant creating
- photo albums
- catalogues and/or product portfolios
- comic pictures for social media.
The development process was outsourced to Vakoms. We decided to build a solution based on the extremely successful Text Here project. A new app called Bindle received fresh design and following features:
- differet options for getting images
- editing multiple pictures
- converting ready images to PDF
- downloading and/ or sharing PDF files.
The application was developed with the ObjectiveC language for iPhone and iPad. In addition,we provided an optimization to make the app compatible with iOS 6 and iPhone 5. After 3 months of development and testing the application was launched.
Bindle allows to take photos with iPhone’s camera or choose them from Camera Roll. Also, we added an option to get images from social media, like Facebook, Instagram, or Flickr. Selected pictures can be edited by adding speech balloons and headers, panned or zoomed to get the exact view you want. Besides there is a possibility to put together up to 24 pictures in one photobook with square (Album) or vertical (Book) orientation.
The completed work can be either downloaded on the smartphone as a single PDF file, or shared by one tap via email, Dropbox, iBooks, Viber, Google Drive and other available options.
Bindle was successfully launched on App Store and in the short period of time it was featured What's Hot on App Store! The app is regularly receiving a lot of positive feedback, as it helps create presentations or funny pics in seconds.
