Photo Mugs are staple gifts and they work excellently. For starters, it’s a really usable gift that doesn’t just stand as a showcase element or gather dust out on the shelves. Secondly, given a good design, photo mugs can look beautiful and fundamentally, accentuate the setting of a house.
There are dozens of services that help you make photo mugs. Most of these are web-based so you’ll have to login to a website, get your photos uploaded and then create the photo mug before having it ordered for shipment. What if you could switch all that to your iPhone?
That’s precisely what Photo Mugs for iPhone helps you do. You can make a customized photo mug and then order it (get it shipped) right from your iPhone.
At first glance, it didn’t strike me as a very interesting prospect but I was forgetting one important thing: most of people’s cherished photos are on their iPhones. Almost all the photos that they’d want to pick for a photo mug is lodged up on their iPhones. And so, it makes perfect sense to be able to get all of this custom photo mug thing done on the iPhone itself.
On the App Store, there are less than a handful of apps like Photo Mugs. What makes the app very promising is that it is totally user-friendly. Strip all obtuse functions and features and you have Photo Mugs there: simple, elegant and easy-to-use.
The app has been designed specifically to make things easy for people who’re looking to ship a customized photo mug. You can add images from your albums and there are two basic functions (options for customization): you can rotate the image from within the app and you can either use a color or B/W variant of the image. Besides this, you can have some text printed too or have the same image duplicated on the other side of the mug.
Not many people realize that having less features actually makes for a great experience. That’s nailed perfectly in the Photo Mugs app.
The USP, however, lies not just in the app but in the service Ben offers. If you placed an order before 2pm local (U.K), your photo mug will mostly arrive the next day. Rates are nominal in comparison to other services.
The app itself is free, by the way. You can check out the official website here.
