Mon, 12/02/2013 - 22:43 - Drew Schweinfurth

Walgreens is excited to welcome Moments for iPad as one of our first third party developer apps to integrate our Photo Book product offering and also one of two winners of our Fall 2013 QuickPrints Developer Contest!

Moments ( lets you highlight life’s best moments with easy-to-make photo books that create a lasting memory just by swiping and tapping, using the photos in your Facebook, Dropbox or iPad. The application, available for iPad, lets you print your photo book with same day pickup to over 4,000 Walgreens locations.

“The QuickPrints API by Walgreens is great for Moments since we only had to focus on creating a great app: they take care of the bricks and mortar part of photo book printing, including payments and customer service” said Amit Sherman, CEO and Founder of Moments. “This is why we could focus on creating a simple application, built for mobile, for the creation of striking photo books that are real simple to make”.

Announcing the QuickPrints Developer Contest Winners!

Mon, 12/02/2013 - 22:25 - Drew Schweinfurth

Back in July of this year, we launched a developer contest geared around promoting integrations of our newest creative photo products with the QuickPrints API.  The contest was scheduled to run over a period of months in order to give developers ample time to work on not only the integration of our API, but also the overall user experience which would optimize the ability to put together a creative photo product on a mobile device.

The Walgreens API team was very impressed with all of the applications that were developed during the course of the contest and hope that many of those applications continue to be worked on and eventually join our family of live QuickPrints integrations.  That being said, we did decide on the winners of our contest and are excited to let everyone check them out today.

The winners of our Fall 2013 QuickPrints Developer Contest are Moments and tapsBook!  Each team will earn the $2,000 prize which assocaited with our contest.  Moments and tapsBook are both free applications for the iPad which are currently available Apple App Store.  Both apps allow for the creation of custom photo books to be printed with same day pickup to over 4,000 Walgreens locations across the US.

You can read more about both applications on our Integration Showcase blog and download them directly at the App Store links below.  Please help me in congratulating the teams from both Moments and tapsBook on their contest win and check out their apps today!
