Social Snaps

The HP SocialSnaps app is an easy way to print your Instagram images from your iPhone or iPad. HP had developed specialty 4x5 sticker paper and this was the accompanying app. 

I started out by designing all the print templates. We were inspired by the original Polaroid photos and wanted to keep that look and feel. Each template uses the Instagram image and some of its meta data. I then designed the app to be a simple workflow and borrowed Instagram's UI pattern for selecting a filter (in this case it's a template). The main technology that HP was interested in was the improvement to the Air Print capabilities. We designed a "print preview" and gave the user some basic print properties.
