Amsterdam, February 25, 2016 – PastBook (https://www.pastbook.com), the premier experts in social memories preservation, today announced the release of PastBook for Facebook Photo Book - an app that enables its users to instantly collect their Facebook moments in a photo book – to store digitally or turn into a beautiful hardbound keepsake, with one easy tap.
Available now on the Apple App Store or online via the Web, PastBook for Facebook helps to bring social memories from online to offline on the go, in less than 60 seconds. The app automagically arranges users' Facebook photos based on the time range that they set, making it possible to create photo albums that feature a particular story: a birthday party, a one-month trip, or the first year of a new family member. Photo books range in price from USD $29 – $120, depending on size, and are being offered at a 30 percent discount in honor of the launch of PastBook for Facebook. Watch a brief video here to see how easy PastBook for Facebook Photo Book is to use.
According to the recent report released by Facebook, the social network has more than 1 billion monthly active mobile users, and 526 million users access Facebook solely from their cell phones. With these numbers in mind, PastBook decided to bring its frictionless experience of the photo books creation to mobile. Last December the company released My Year - the app that compiles an entire year of Facebook or Instagram photos into a beautiful digital or physical photo book. The app immediately received a great response from the users: 40+K app downloads, 100+K Year Books Created (37% of which were shared on Facebook). These results proved that people are searching for a way to create photo books out of their social memories on the go. PastBook doubled up its daily revenues with My Year app, leading the company to reach €1M+ Run Revenue.
The main feature request from the users after the launch of My Year was the possibility to set a custom time range, up to the exact date, and that’s the reason behind the launch of this first version of PastBook for Facebook app. The company is already working on implementing more features that will allow users to create books from Facebook Pages and Groups, with the same frictionless experience. A version for Instagram only will also come out in March.
The books are easily customizable and can be also accessed from the web. Photo books are printed on silky, high-quality thick paper, and can include up to 1,000 photos on 500 pages. PastBook for Facebook taps into the natural nostalgia and desire to preserve memories and experiences, helping users create a precious keepsake that immortalizes their social experiences.
"PastBook encourages social media enthusiasts to move beyond simply recording their daily lives, allowing them to permanently preserve their thoughts, memories and photos. I’ve never created a photo book in my life before starting this company, because I never had time for that. Now with PastBook I can simply turn the last 10 years of the Life Moments I shared on Facebook into a photo book with a simple push of a button – and I’m done in 60 seconds. There is no need to spend hours gathering photos and materials, tracking down digital files, writing endless captions and journal entries, or trying to choose between a vast array of layout, font, background and color options. PastBook for Facebook Photo Book app does it all for you in one easy step."
