Kodak’s new Moments app allows you print photos delivered to your home


Kodak Alaris have announced their new Kodak Moments app, which allows users to take, edit and print photos anywhere, anytime, and have the order shipped direct to the customer. The app itself is a free download from the Play Store, and while it can be a little slow to navigate through (presumably it does a fair bit of talking to Kodak’s servers behind the scenes) it’s quite workable.

It might not be the most powerful photo editor on the mobile, but you can crop and apply filters easily enough, but for more detailed editing you’re probably going to be better off with something like Snapseed.

Anyhow, the hook really is the print-to-home feature, which allows you to order 6×4″ prints for just 15 cents each, using photos from your phone, Instagram, Flickr, and Dropbox. It looks as if the shipping charge is $2.95 regardless of the size of your order, so if you’re ordering a few photos, it becomes better value.

If you’re in a bit more of a hurry, you can use the app to select and prepare photos to print at an Internet-enabled Kodak kiosk, which still seem to be in a few places around — Kodak’s website has a kiosk locator so you can find the best place to print your photos, and that way you save the $2.95 shipping and handling fee.

Overall the app seems easy enough to use, and if you’re still sharing printed photos with others, or wanting to save the really precious memories in photo albums, this could be a good, easy way to do it.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
