Kicksend, a Y Combinator-backed company that helps people share photos
privately with their loved ones, today unveiled version 3.0 of its
Kicksend app for Android and iPhone, which includes a new "Print to
Family" feature and the ability to share an unlimited number of high-res
photos with family and friends.
Available as a free download, the Kicksend app includes upgrades and
features that simplify the sharing of photos with family and friends
around the world. Offering the privacy not afforded by social networks,
Kicksend provides the solution to the difficulties many encounter with
sending full-resolution photo albums via email or phone.
Among Kicksend 3.0's new features is Print to Family, a retail
integration that enables users to send prints to their family and
friends' nearest printing location. With this launch, Kicksend users are
now able to print to CVS/pharmacy and Target stores, in addition to
Walgreens, which was previously available. This brings the total number
of Kicksend-integrated photo printing locations in the United States to
more than 15,000.
With Print to Family, Kicksend users simply select the photos they want
to send to their family for printing, at which point recipients receive
a notification via SMS text message or email. Recipients then follow the
link within the message, order prints in the sizes of their choice and
pick up prints at the participating store nearest to them.
Kicksend 3.0 encourages constant sharing and eliminates the need to be
tech-savvy through its simple interface. Other new features include:
As entrepreneurs living far away from their families, Kicksend's
founders were frustrated with the limited options available for sharing
their experiences through photos, along with these options' accompanying
trade-offs - from file size to quality to overall usability. Designed as
a better way to share large batches of photos, Kicksend is the complete
photo sharing service for sending and printing high-res photos and
staying in touch with the people you love.
