The Challenge

The project had been through many timeline extensions before Niteco came on board. We had to ensure we could execute Hapsnap’s vision in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

Niteco was able to offer Hapsnap both an updated IOS and Android version for the cost of the original IOS development. New features of the app includes:

  • Authentication via Username/Password, Facebook account, Google account

  • Loading images from Device, Instagram, Picasa, Facebook

  • Grouping images by album or time

  • Image editor

  • Uploading images to Hapsnap server

  • Payment via Visa card or Paypal

  • Social sharing via Facebook and Email

Download the app on your phone, and have your photos delivered to you in a snap.
