Prynt is the first of its kind, and attaches to your phone like any ordinary case – it’s currently available for the iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6 and 6S, and Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5. You don’t need to pair it up by Bluetooth or anything like that – once it’s clipped on, it will work.
Just choose a picture from your smartphone gallery or social media feed (or take a new one), press print, and it will magically appear in just 30 seconds. You can even record a five-to-10 second video to accompany each photo, so when you scan the printed photo with the Prynt app, the video will play. I think it’s a great way of bringing back extra memories of the day a picture was taken.
Like Polaroids and other instamatic systems, the Prynt case doesn’t require any ink, as it’s contained and developed within the photo paper itself. Refill papers are available for $25 for a pack of 50 on the Prynt website, www.prynt.co, or through the Beta version of Prynt’s app, which you can access by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (it’s not yet available in the App Store).
The case also has its own internal battery, so it won’t draw power through your phone, and comes in black or white – sadly the pink shown in these shots is no longer available, which is a shame as I was really taken with it!
The lovely people at Prynt are charging $149 per case – postage is free in the US. If you order in the UK or Europe you’ll pay an additional $12 postage and $30 in tax, bringing the cost to around £136 in total). This includes 10 papers for printing.
So will any of you be placing an order? If so, you’ll need to visit www.prynt.co. AmyTweet
