Good morning!
I have done so much research to photobooth software and your software is the one I like the most! I'm really interested in your sparkbooth software except that I would like to have a few questions answered prior to using this program.

 I am looking to create a photobooth using a Canon 70D and using an ipad 5th generation as the live view touch screen
I saw that only sparkbooth 4 is compatible with Mac but what about ipads?

I would like to create an ipad - camera photobooth. I'd like to have the ipad to have a wireless connection to a mac book (likely to be icloud) & then the mac book connected to a printer.
Is there a particular printer that your software works best with?
I've been debating between photobooth printers:
-DNP Rx1
-Mitsubishi CP-9550DW
-HiTi P510L

Your help and suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks for your precious time!

    Hello Cyvthia,

    The DSLR version of Sparkbooth is not available for use on a Mac
    and I believe all Ipads are Apple (Mac) computers...

    Most all printers that can print 4X6 will work. But many users of SB prefer a DyeSub printer that uses roll paper and dyesub media for printing and they also auto cut the strips.

    Hope that was some help to you

    You can't run sparkbooth on an iPad. iPads run on iOS and macs run on osx. You can use a third party program to convert your ipad into an extra montior. I wouldn't recommend it, you will probably run into more problems than it's worth. iPad screens are very small anyway. For much less money you can have a very nice touch screen monitor, just make sure you get one that works with a Mac.
