Attached below is a beta preview of Sparkbooth 3. New features in this version include:

  • Added SendGrid as another email upload provider
  • Added to email photos to users. Select this option in Uploaders settings.
  • Added option to submit emails to MailChimp mailing lists. To turn on this option, go to Settings, select Option tab, select Saving from list and check the "Submit Email to MailChimp Mailing List" option. You will need to also select the Prompt for email option.
  • New touch screen controls. To enable, go to Settings > Options tab > User Controls.
  • New on-screen keyboard used for user prompts.
  • New on-screen photo layout selection and layout preview, so your users can now select the layout to use. Only layouts marked as "Favorite" will be displayed.
  • New on-screen color button so your users can change video filters
  • New on-screen start button as an alternative to the "Click to start" option
  • Option to always hide mouse cursor. Useful for touch screen users.
  • Enable Facebook page albums selection
  • Fixed missing "z" key from on-screen keyboard
  • Fixed Posterous and SmugMug uploader issues
  • Other minor fixes

The new touch screen features work great with computers like the HP TouchSmart series. If you don’t have a touch screen computer, the new features also work with a mouse.

This preview does not include the Canon camera or the native webcam features. These are still under development.

You can use your Sparkbooth license to activate it.

Please send me your feedback on this preview.
