Booth Ninja v1.2 Released, Introduces Dropbox Syncing

I am happy to say that version 1.2 of Booth Ninja has been released and with it Dropbox integration! You can now seamlessly sync your templates from your account to your Dropbox and ultimately your photo booths.

You should all now be on the new platform full of lots of fixes, tweaks and new features. The most notable feature we have added in this release is Dropbox syncing.

Yes we have added complete integration with Dropbox you can now authorize Booth Ninja to access your account and sync your templates to it automatically. This is great for photo booth owners managing multiple booths in various locations. Whenever a design is licensed it will be automatically sent to your Dropbox.

To configure this go to Accounts and then the Syncing tab. Follow the 3 step authentication process and you are ready to go. You can specify a folder name of your liking for us to place your templates in. By default this is photoboothtemplates. You can also sync all of your current licensed designs by clicking the Sync Templates button.

Didn’t quite follow that? Don’t worry I documented the process in this video.

Along with Dropbox integration there are tons of tweaks and fixes throughout the application. Some notables include:

  • Drag n drop of text and user graphics now displays bleed margins.
  • Font size is no longer limited to a handful of predefined sizes in a drop down list. Now there are up and down arrows allowing users to adjust text size with finer granularity.
  • Action icons on the client dashboard have been replaced with more intuitive menus.
  • Lots of fixes in the background rendering service.
  • Photoboof configuration file generation and inclusion for users that have identified their software as Photoboof.
