30 DECEMBER 2013, AMSTERDAM
SummaryPastBook launches today the "Relive your 2013" app that lets people relive all the best 2013 memories shared on Facebook or Instagram and create a photo book, on-line or printed, in just one click.
PastBook is launching today the “Relive your 2013” app, to allow users to create a photo book, on-line (free) or printed, with all the moments they had shared on Facebook or Instagram, in just one click!
After last year’s success of the “Relive your 2012” project, the app was refreshed and accompanied by fresh new features, based on the core PastBook platform.
As we are about to enter the New Year, it is time to take a look back on the year that’s over and relive all the fun and great moments that we’ve shared on Facebook and Instagram, including all photos, comments and likes!
Once logged in PastBook (using Facebook or Instagram), it only takes one click and the book is automatically generated, allowing the user to make a raft of customizations on the book in terms of the appearance and the content of the book. What’s new? The users will now be able to review the content of the book, use a personal photo as cover, customized each single caption and choose amongst a greater variety of backgrounds, only to mention a few of the new additions!
Relive your 2013 simply by going to http://hub.pastbook.com/en/relive-2013 and downloading for free the PDF version of the book or buying the printed version from $13 (9.90 €) with worldwide shipping!
PastBook’s mission is to fight the fragmentation of people’s memories across the various social networking channels by providing an easy way to save them both online and in print, thanks to our high end technology software.
This mission was recently expanded with the release of the new Collaborative photo book platform (http://collab.pastbook.com/) that allows a group of friends to add pictures in one single album that can be kept on-line or printed. Works great for collecting all the photos of the Christmas holiday or last year eve night together with friends!
