Epson to launch new free FastFoto App taking the world’s fastest WiFi photo scanner to a new level
Epson Australia will soon launch its new app for the wildly popular and award-winning FastFoto FF-680W WiFi photo scanner. Developed by Epson it will be available for download for free and will add significant capabilities and functionality to the FastFoto with a host of new features that lets users create, edit and share their memories.
Once installed on a tablet or smartphone, users will not only be able to scan photos directly but also edit, share and even create stories with them. As part of creating a story, the app includes a feature enabling multiple scanned photos to be ‘joined’, giving the user the ability to add a voice commentary for each photo. This means users will be able to chronologically join a series of images while at the same time overlaying commentary to create an entire story.
You can also add background music from either the supplied styles or from your own library to add that special and individual touch whilst text can be easily added to photos. This new app also allows easy uploading of photos and stories to social media.
Epson Australia’s GM marketing Bruce Bealby said, “The new FastFoto app will take what you can do with FastFoto to a whole new level. You will be able to seamlessly integrate with mobile devices to not only save and share photos, but create stories and share them too. Once you use the app there really will be no turning back, it’s that good.”
The new FastFoto app – suitable for new and existing users of the FastFoto FF-680W – is coming soon and once here you will be able to download and use it for free.
