Introduction

Breeze Booth is a powerful photo booth app designed with flexibility, redundancy and creativity in mind, and features the most powerful and flexible interface designer of any iPad app in the industry. Create graphically stunning designs, complex multi-menu navigations, engaging data surveys and custom keyboards. Quickly deploy them to a fleet of iPads using trusted cloud services (Dropbox, iCloud etc) or via your own private and secure web servers. Choose between the simplicity of the iPads built in camera and quality of external DSLR and mirrorless models.

Make it yours. Make it your clients. Breeze Booth can be re-skinned to make it look like your very own photo booth software.

Download the App and initial events to your iPad

Which iPad/iPhone should I use?

Breeze Booth runs on all iPads and iPhones running iPadOS 16, iPadOS 15, iOS 16 and iOS 15.

Videos, slow motion and all background removal requiring live view run much better on powerful devices.

We strongly recommend fast recent devices to capture slow motion, post process videos, and offer built in background removal with live view. At the time of writing (May 2022) recommended devices include the 2021 iPad Pro, 2022 iPad Air or 2022 iPhone SE. The A11 processor (2019 or more recent models) is the minimum which can be used.

Once you have downloaded the App, you will be prompted to download two events to your device. These events come ready to run.
