The #PartyPartyApp is in the App Store!!

Party Party App is hereWe're kind of flipping out today!! Our new app, Party Party, is in the iOS App Store! We've been sharing sneak peeks on Instagram for the past few days, but it's finally approved and available. So excited!

We've been working on this for almost a year now, which is crazy to think about. We came up with the idea of creating a photo booth app while having lunch on a patio one day last summer. The idea quickly grew when we thought it would be fun to layer the photo booth images, creating stop-motion videos and .gifs! That quickly became our favorite part of the app. We've spent the last few months testing the app. Our phones are filled with dozens of (mostly really silly) stop-motion videos. 50+ test rounds later, the app is ready to launch!

PhotoSo what exactly does it do?
You pick how many photos you want to take (1, 4, 9, or 16), and the app will take the photos automatically, spacing them 1 second apart by default. But you can go into settings to give yourself more time if you need. Or you can switch it to manual mode and take the pictures at whatever pace you like! We definitely recommend you turn your sound on, so you can hear the countdown. Oh and you HAVE to at least listen to the other sound options. Our niece Penny recorded a countdown, and it's AMAZING!

Once you've taken your photos, you now have all these options to play with:

• Adjust the speed of the animation to your liking
• Save as looping video, perfect for Instagram
• OR save as a .gif file for your blog, Tumblr or website

Made with #partypartyapp  PHOTO SQUARE COLLAGE OR STRIP
• Lay out as square collage for Instagram
• OR lay out as classic photo booth strip for printingMade with #partypartyapp     17 FILTERS (created by our very own Sarah Rhodes!)
• Customize your creation with 17 filters inspired by a bright, modern feel as well as vintage film
• Adjust brightness and contrast to your liking

• Choose from 7 frames inspired by vintage photo booths and film
• OR apply a clean, simple circle or plain white border

FIVEWill it be released on Android?
So this is tough, because we know so many of our readers have Android phones and would love to support us and try out this app. Like we've talked about in the past, developing for Android sadly isn't as simple as copying and pasting code to the Google Play store. It's a completely different platform, so you're pretty much starting from scratch. In other words, it's a huge investment. And our A Beautiful Mess Android launch wasn't able to recoup our investment. To put it in perspective, it sold 1/20 the amount iOS did. So right now, Android is too risky for us, but we're definitely open to it in the future. We're keeping an eye on Google Play for sure.

PhotoAny questions? We tried to make it as easy to use as possible, but let us know any questions you may have in the comments. And we'll post a follow-up on the blog with FAQs and tips in a week or so. One quick tip on saving gifs: Your iOS camera roll doesn't preview the animation of gif files. To see it animate you can do any of the following:
• Email it
• Text it
• Save it to your computer
• Upload it to compatible social media

I can't tell you how excited we are to see all the creations you come up with! Be sure to tag it #partypartyapp, so we can follow along!

Made with #partypartyapp
P.S. A big, big thank you to Agatha June for helping us design it and to Wes Billman for being one of the most amazing developers we've ever met!

At the moment the app is still populating, which means it may not be searchable in your area yet. To find it now go to the A Beautiful Mess app in the App Store and click "related." Or you can search "Red Velvet Art LLC," and it's the second result.

  • Really think I will love the app – so happy to be seeing your Blog as well! Great content so far …enjoying it! 🙂

  • I truely love it, although I wish I could import previously taken photos and would love to adjust the amount of filter strength.

  • I have a Canon SELPHY CP910 is it possible to print pictures on it from your app? Or would I have to go to the canon app to do that?

  • Any chance you’ll be releasing an Android version in the Google store? I hope!!!!!!!

  • You add some more in my best app list, thanks to you. I am using most of them and feel like there is no life without all these apps. All are managing my business very effectively.

  • I have IOS, but I have seen companies like Cinetics launch a Kickstarter campaign for new projects. That way they don’t lose money on new developments. Love the new app by the way! 🙂

  • Hi Christine! Could you send me an email at: partyparty AT redevelvetart DOT com with a screenshot of the error? Thank you! – Jacki

  • I should add that the error code is 3310, if that helps 🙂
    Christine x

  • Hi there, I’ve downloaded this app and it is really fab, except for the fact that I cannot export any of my pictures because of ‘domain error’ and a load of other tech jargon. Any ideas?
    Thank you!

  • What an awesome app! I can’t wait to play around with it and test it out 🙂

  • the app looks so cool, congrats on all your hard work for it.

    I’m sad it’s not available for android yet, but I hope you’ll consider it soon!

    Lets get the Kickstarter campaign up and running!

    J xo

  • This looks so exciting! I can’t wait to download it.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  • Congratulations to your whole team!! Sounds like a brilliant app idea, and it’s no doubt awesome!

  • Got it and it’s such fun! You clever girls……;) I have only made videos; how do you just get a photo strip or collage?

  • I LOvE your new app!!!!!! Two update suggestions to capture bigger audience, not criticism just things I wish it could do in addition to the wonderfulness that it already is! I have a little one, wish I could take the countdown off and point/shoot, by the time it counts down she’s not in frame any more haha even if I chase her : P Kinda tied to that comment, wish I could pull from my camera roll and edit those photos with your gorgeous filters too! Xoxo

  • The app is great! Love the filters and it’s super easy to use. Congrats!
    Only got a bit “disappointed” with the fact that is not possible to use pictures already taken. Are you considering adding this into the app? That would make it perfect! Cheers

  • This is awesome! Congratulations, you guys. Happy to download & support. Thanks for the .gif feature! I know I’ll get some good use out of that. xoxo


  • I am beyond excited to download this 🙂 Just reading this post made me happy! You both are so cute, thank you for your hard work with the app and the blog! It is truly appreciated 🙂

  • Just purchased it!!! Have been looking for a great photobooth app for quite some time! Thank you for creating this! I’ll be making good use of it on Instagram!


  • There is! You can take photos on manual mode (click on the settings wheel next to the camera button within the app) so you don’t have a certain time limit. 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Tori! At this time, Party Party doesn’t have the option to add music. Feel free to email me at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com if you have anymore questions! 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Kay! Be sure that you are allowing the app to access your camera roll. On your iPhone, click on:

    Settings > Privacy > Photos > Party Party

    Be sure that the slider is on (green)

    Let me know if you need anything else! You an email me at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com. 🙂 – Jacki

  • Oh also, is there any other way to slow down the photo taking process to longer then 5 seconds? for example…on your cake .gif up above there’s no way you cut the cake and dished it out in 5 seconds….did you pause it or something?

  • So I’ve seen on Instagram some people are adding music to their .gif’s how are they doing that? Please share?

  • I’m getting an error when I go to export photos. Is this a known bug or just me? Babies grabbing phones look way cuter in gif form and I want to share!

  • Oh I finally got it ……WHAT FUN!!! I have already made some videos and tagged them #partypartyapp in instagram! This is a really cool app and I am so glad you all made it. And all for only .99 cents WOW! Thanks so much!

  • Hi Elle! Unfortunately, there’s not a lot that we can do if your iPhone isn’t a 4 or newer. Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com and let me know if you are unable to save any photos to your cameral roll. Thanks for your support! – Jacki

  • Hi Ellen! That’s a bug that we are planning to fix with our first update. Sorry for an inconvenience it’s caused and thanks so much for your support! – Jacki

  • Hi Adena! We plan to add that feature very soon! 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi! Be sure that you are clicking the option to save it as a .gif and not just the video when you are finished. Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com if you have anymore questions! – Jacki

  • Hi Riina! We were unable to make an update for the Android version of our first app. Sorry for any inconvenience that might have caused! – Jacki

  • Hi Holly! Sadly, our ABM Android release did not meet our goals. We’d love to try again in the future, but right now it’s too risky. Thank you so much for your support! 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Kirsi! You can adjust the brightness and contrast after you’ve taken your photos. You should see the icons under the filter choices. Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com if you have anymore questions! 🙂 – Jacki

  • I purchased the app and made a couple animated photo sets but they didn’t save to my camera roll. The photo collages and film strips did but not the animated sets. Any suggestions of how to fix this? My phone is old- a 3GS – could that be the problem? It’s a fun app and would be more fun if I could save the animated sets too. Thanks for your help.

  • Love,love the new app!! Quick question, can you upload existing pictures from your camera roll? I spent some time with app yesterday and don’t think you can but thought I would ask. Thanks……Julie

  • Hi! I’m loving the app, but the frames disappear when saving the pictures to my phone. Something you could fix maybe?

  • This is perfect! Just what the smart phone photo market needed!

    Yuliya xx

  • Yes to the yes! I would donate as well! I purchased ABM app for my Android (actually, this is the only app (except for VSCO filters) that I paid for, too!) and I love it! I am sure this new app is even better!

  • I can see this becoming TOTALLY addictive!! Which is both amazing…and not (if you know what I mean…I gotta get some sleep, too!!) ;D

  • Oh my! Congratulatios, guys! This app looks like a ton of fun! Having photobooth in my phone sounds amazing! :)) Sadly, I hane Android.. 🙁

  • I’m feeling like I’m the only one using Windows Phone 😀 and I know its even harder to make it happen there.
    So for now I just love seeing all the picks on instagram and hope my boyfriend gets himself a new iphone so I can take his old one 😀

    A question that maybe Trey can answer: have you heard of issues with the ABM app for windows phone? I have the problem that sometimes I’m not able to bring my foto in the right position. I want something in the middle of the pic but am not able to do that. I found my way to do it anyway with an other app and then come back to the ABM app for the features. So thats fine for me 🙂
    But since I know your not using windows phone I wanted to make sure you know about the issue.

  • I really hope we can see it on android sometime. I love the first beautiful mess app. I use it to edit all my pictures. I have another photo editor on my phone but ABM really adds to that cute girly thing I like. Ive been working on a scrap book Aka Making my boyfriend take cute pictures all the time because otherwise he wont lol
    Any way I really want to see that app available to me (:

  • Did you release your first app to both apple and android users at the same time? I’m thinking a big reason why your sales to android users was much lower could be that you released it much later to that market and the sense of urgency And marketing you put into it was gone by then..l hence the much lower sales. Just a thought. Love, a sad android user.

  • I think I actually heard my heart break when I read the Android news! I was so so so excited about this app. 🙁 It would have been perfect for my wedding guests next year!

  • Hi Valerie! Sadly, our previous ABM Android release did not meet our goals. We’d love to try again in the future, but right now it’s too risky. Thank you so much for your support! – Jacki

  • Hi there guys! I’m so excited about your new app! Do you think that there will ever be a possibility that your apps will be available to androids!?

  • Oh my god, this looks soooo good 🙂 I love it! Especially those effect, hope there are some really good ones 🙂 Totally buying it!

  • Love this, only 69p so a bargain! Great work, can’t wait to have a play with it 🙂

  • I’m super bummed I can’t get this app on my windows phone-although I completely understand ? For now I will keep enjoying my ABM app and if I ever switch to an iPhone, downloading party party will be the first thing I do! Congrats you guys!! So excited for you!

  • I love this new app! I recently learned how to do this in photo shop but this is so much easier! This may be one of my new favorite apps! Thanks ladies! 🙂

  • Hi Kate! Try deleting the app and then re-installing it from the iTunes Store. Be sure to click on “yes” when it asks if you want to allow the app to access your camera roll. If that doesn’t work, send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com and we’ll get it figured out! 🙂 – Jacki

  • It’s downloading while I type this comment! Looks so fun!

  • I so love this app! I have problems though! For one, it spontaneously is crashing about half the times I’ve tried to use it. 🙁 Secondly and more importantly, I get a gibberish error message when I try to actually save/upload the photos. It goes away so fast that I can’t read it thoroughly.

    I am using iphone 4 with ios7…any ideas anyone? I want this to work. 🙂

  • Hi Lindsey!

    Once you create a stop-motion video and export it, the video will save in your camera roll. You have to select the option “save as a .gif” after you export it if you want to put it on a blog or website. You won’t need to use code to embed it.

    You can either use the manual mode option or the countdown feature when taking photos. The countdown will show 1, 2, 3 and then take the picture. You can choose between 1, 4, 9, or 16 total photos (this option is next to the camera button).

    We hope to add the delete option in the future! Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com if you have anymore questions! 🙂 – Jacki

  • Such a great app! One suggestion: Being able to take photos from my camera roll would be really awesome and helpful.

    But beautiful design 🙂

  • Hi Caroline! As of right now, you can only take photos within the app. We plan to add an upload option the future 🙂 – Jacki

  • Omgosh! I’m obsessed – what a great original idea. Y’all are simply the best.

  • I’m so excited for this app!! just downloaded it. Also- I might be totally being an idiot here- but can I upload previously made photos and stack them together to make a mini video? I swear I’m usually more tech savvy than this! :p

  • Love this app! It’s been so much fun and I love that you can use the animated GIFs for other stuff other than social media.

    A few questions/suggestions:
    -I can’t seem to figure out which saved movie/photo clip in my Photos is the actual GIF that I can use on a blog or website.
    -Are we suppose to email the animated GIF to ourselves to them paste it into a blog post? Or how is that suppose to be done? I’ve only ever used code to embbed GIFs.
    -a countdown on the photos taken would be nice to let us know how many we have left, or something to that affect
    -delete a bad photo option

    I can’t believe how you guys do it! Always coming up with fun stuff! Any other app ideas in the works?

  • I don’t understand how it can be a gif when I compose an email, but once I send it, it’s not animated. Then I download it, it’s a .gif but isn’t animated, it’s just the first picture. Sure I can upload the “gif” that’s a video onto instagram, but I actually want to have .gif images for use on other sites. I’m hoping this is some kind of bug that will be fixed, and not that the video is supposed to be a “gif”

  • So sad this won’t be released for Android 🙁 I feel like this app has a much more unique use (Let’s be honest- the ABM app was basically like instagram/VSCO Cam/etc but with a few different features). However, THIS app has COMPLETELY different features and a different function. I’d much rather have access to this vs. the ABM app. 🙁

  • just bought it! so fun! can’t wait to test it out with my girlfriends!!!

  • I’m so bummed that you don’t have a development for Android yet. I got super excited from all the teasers on your instagrams for it! Now I feel like it was all a tease 🙁 lol I’ll definitely donate on a crowdsourcing venue to get it on Android.

  • All purchased already! You’ll be happy to know it was very easy to find, came up right away!

  • Really? We’ve noticed that it is still populating and many people aren’t able to see it yet. Can you see it if you go to A Beautiful Mess app and look at “related”? You also may be able to find it on the top charts, look at top paid apps.

    Thanks so much for your support!! Elsie

  • Aside from having filters, they don’t do any of the same things actually! This app makes photo booth images and stop-motion videos/.gifs! 🙂

  • I looks really good. But what is the difference between this and the ABM app?

  • the app is AWESOME! im totally in love.


  • How much fun! I’m not finding it in the Canadian app store… any ideas? Or is it not available there yet?

  • awww… this app looks like a lot of fun! I’m just crossing my fingers that it’ll be available on Google Play soon. 🙁

  • SO fun!! I love this! Your ABM ap is one of two apps I’ve ever paid for, so I absolutely love everything you do! Can’t wait to get this one!

  • Got it! I was using my IPad but when I switched to my phone there it was under related. Thanks!

  • New suggestions:)

    1.Being able to add sound! like a little movie! This might be a little far fetched but hey why not:)

    2.Being able to move the pictures in the sequence. I realized I took a photo out of order and had to start all over. (manual mode)

    3.Being able to go back and edit once you’ve seen it all together(still in the editing process). I didn’t like one of my “videos” and when I went back it only let you start all over again. Not what I wanted to do. (manual mode)

  • Hi Ivette! Sorry it’s not working for you. Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com with the type of iPhone that you have and the version of iOS that you are using. Thanks! – Jacki

  • Hi!! Loving the app but sadly, when I go to try to export, it keeps saying error and won’t let me. Wondering if I can get some help with that. I’d love to start posting and sharing this wonderful app! xoxo

  • Hi Carol! Try searching for partyparty without any spaces. It should be the first one that comes up. Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com if you have anymore questions! 🙂 – Jacki

  • I tried to purchase the app but it does not come up under related or under Red Velvet. Ugh. Help!

  • oh gosh i love this so much…

    i know this might seem weird to ask, but how do i get to do that? like, create apps and design filters and gifs?? what do i have to study or learn about?? i absolutely love it, everything about designing. it would be so awesome to work with you guys, you seem to have so much fun 🙂

  • Hi Casey! The photo(s) are taken after the 1,2,3 countdown. You can also switch to manual mode and take them yourself. Feel free to email me with anymore questions at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com. 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi! Sadly, our ABM Android release did not meet our goals. We’d love to try again in the future, but right now it’s too risky. Thank you so much for your support! – Jacki

  • This looks like so much fun! Any chance there’s gonna be an android version some day?

  • Hi Samantha! Send me an email at: partyparty AT redvelvetart DOT com and with your phone specifics (type of iPhone and iOS version) and I can help you with that 🙂 – Jacki

  • Pleaaaaaaase find a way to have it for Android, can’t wait to use it !!
    I’m so jealous of iphone’s owners now :(((

  • I love EVERYTHING about this app! That said, I’m off to go get me an iPhone

  • Hey guys!! So glad I at least have my iPod to use this app!! I love everything about it so far, but it seems to lock me into the settings screen! I was testing the sounds (the little guy I babysit loooves Penny’s countdown!), and I had to force the app closed. I tried a few more times and always have the same issue.
    Thanks again for all of your hard work! You really brighten my day!

  • I’ve been stalking the progress of this app for a few weeks, hoping it would be available in time for the ladies only trip I’m going on this weekend.

    Can’t wait to use this app to create fun memories!

    My Iowa Life

  • Love this app! I’m probably just having a blonde moment with it but I can’t figure out when to pose for the pics! Are the pictures taken when you see the “one, two, three”? Or are they taken right after? Thanks y’all!!

  • Okay so I follow ya’ll on instagram and I’ve been seeing your sneaks and freaking out – Oh I sure hope their app does that and it does! I am so excited – purchased and played with and loved. I am so proud of you – can you say that about people you don’t know personally? Whatever, I am because I feel like I do. Love you all and I’m proud of you for being Kick A. Love the app and can’t wait to play with it some more.

  • I absolutely cannot wait to play with this new app – your team has just been absolutely rocking the entire photography world and it is so inspiring! Keep up the hard work!

  • i love it. i have been playing with it so much too and am excited to see that the upload feature will be available with update. i second this idea of numbering the photos you have taken/have left in manual mode. i chose to manually take 16 photos this morning and had no idea how many i had left. you can scroll to count the ones you have taken, so that is helpful, but a quick visual would be awesome. great job, guys. again. 🙂

  • Just purchased this app! I can’t wait to get home and play around with it!


  • This looks like blast, getting it now!


  • Hi Jen! It should be available everywhere now. send me an email at: with any issues or concerns 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Stacia! Not at this time, but we plan to add that feature soon 🙂 – Jacki

  • Loving it so far!!! Very very excited for you guys! I really enjoy being able to support bloggers like you that are paving the way for the rest of us! Congrats on the launch!!!


  • I 10th this idea! Really though it would be amazing and I think the support for this would be phenomenal.

  • Hi Jessica! We plan on adding this feature soon 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi CR! Yes, it’s the same situation at this time. – Jacki

  • Hi Barbie! You can send me an email at: and I can help you with that 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Kristiana! We plan on adding an upload feature soon 🙂 – Jacki

  • Thank you so much for your support Stephanie!!! We’re so excited!

  • Hi Mary! Send me an email at: and I can help you with that 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Connie! Send me an email at: and I can help you with that! 🙂 – Jacki

  • Hi Elizabeth! We plan to add that feature in the future. 🙂 – Jacki

  • Me too! I’v never bought an App except yours and it’s worth every penny. I’d donate to get this going 100% xxx ps. This new App looks AWESOME!!! I NEED it in my life

  • Hi Andrea! Thanks so much. We plan on adding this feature in the future 🙂 – Jacki

  • What an awesome app! I love that you can create gifs and capture little mini memories to look back on later. I can totally see these contributing to online journals, or serving as keepsakes for families. What a great creation!

  • Hi!

    I’m from Norway and I LOVE the app 🙂 But I was wondering – is it possible to choose photos from the camera roll? If not, you should fix that! It would make it so much more fun 😀 Keep up the good work anyways!

  • YES! What a great idea Les G! I use the ABM app all the time and am SO SAD this won’t be available for Android anytime soon. It’s really a testament to the whole team that with all the amazing free content you provide regularly, the majority of your readership is happy to support your “to be purchased” endeavors 🙂 Kudos to you and your kick-butt-itude.

  • This announcement seriously made me think about trading my Razr for an iPhone. If you do decide to do a Kickstarter or Gofundme for an Android equivalent, you can count me in!

  • this sounds unreal — phenomenal! brilliant work, girls!!

  • This is such a great idea! Love how fun this is and all the options! Thanks for always being so great on capturing the next best trend! 🙂

  • best kept little secret, you little sneaks!! This looks like so much fun, I’m already planning hair, make up and wardrobe for a little fun this weekend with the app!! Thank you guys!! you are a true inspiration with all your success and genius ideas 🙂 Keep it up!!

  • I am going to subscribe, so I can learn more. I can’t wait to receive updates through e-mail.

  • I too would donate for the android app, I just can’t bring myself to by an iPhone. I’m sure you’d get the funding in break neck speed hahaha

  • Way to go! This is even better than your first app, which is great! You have built a great team of creative people! The ideas will just keep coming. I’ve followed you, Elsie for a long time and I appreciate what you guys do! Thank you!

  • Whilst I love your apps I can’t get the frames on this one to save ;( it saved all the other edits but the frames I add are missing once it is it my camera roll ;(

  • The app looks awesome, but as others have said before me, I have android….Definitely would be behind you for a kickstarter or something. Please, please, please keep us informed.

  • Well, I’ve been reading through all the comments and I have something to say: I would definitely donate but for you to create an Android version of it! 🙂 Think about all the possibilities here and how you would make lots of Android users extremely happy 🙂

  • Congratulations. I will definitely will try to install it on my Ipad (with camera). xx

  • Immense you girls ROCK!!!!

    I’m going to waist soooo much time on this new app!!!

    More importantly i can use it to capture my little ladys growth whilst on maternity!!!

    Keep up the amazing work!!! Cant wait to see what you’ll pull out of your talented hats next!!!

  • Woo I’m going to download this app right now! I can’t wait to use it and have fun with my friends! I also think I’m gonna try to make all of my friends that have a smartphone buy it 😀

  • Is it possible it’s not available in the appstore in austria yet?

  • Same here..only App ive paid for on android! Ever. Beacuse its brilliant. I phone contracts are crazy money here in the UK…Im sure thats why alot of us broke arty types stick with Samsung!

    So impressed that you girls have an idea and go for it. inspiring!

  • Wow, you girls get me every time, with no fail, you just can’t do anything wrong. Amazing!

  • It’s loading right on my iPhone at the moment!
    Unfortunately it is a few days too late to take pictures of the crazy party we had after winning the world cup … 😉
    But I am sure, the next party will start soon. Thanks for being such a creative bunch of people!

  • Oh my gosh! Please definitely make this app for android! It looks amazing!!!

  • Oh my gosh! I love this, I’m gonna be downloading it as soon as I can! x

  • Oh, no! I’m an Android girl… Bu…

  • THIS. IS. AMAZING. I’m so very much going to use this for my blog. I have been planning weekly personal gifs, this makes it so much easier!

  • YAY! That is super awesome. A Beautiful Mess was one of the first apps I downloaded when I finally made it over into the world of iPhones, and this one looks like it’s going to be just as much fun. High fives all round!

  • This is amazing, you girls are seriously genius! I’m downloading the app RIGHT now 🙂 xx from Switzerland!

  • Oh yeah. No. 3 – importing photos from the camera roll into the sequence.

  • LOVE IT! Very cute and fun!
    A few notes for future updates:
    1- while in manual mode, it would be nice to be able to delete a bad photo instead of starting over (the whole good sequence is deleted b/c of 1 bad photo, and it sucks to stage it over again).
    2- using the volume side buttons to take a photo (this is especially handy when trying to photograph your own pregnant belly from the side. I tried to press the regular screen button and pressed ‘cancel’ instead…huge bummer).
    Great job! I love the app already!
    Big hugs from Israel! I love your blog! Keep it up!

  • Oh noes! I’m so sad to hear that I probably won’t be able to join the party with my Android 🙁 Your previous app is by far my favourite app and I use it everyday. It was the first app I paid any money and got it the very first day so I’m sad to hear it didn’t sell very well.

    You said some time ago that there was an update for the First app, was that also for the apple peopleor is my phone just stupid for not finding it?

    Anyways, I’m happy for you girls (and guys) but hey it sucks not to be invited to a partyparty 😉

    Lots of love from Finland

  • Eeee I’m getting my iPhone today! Can’t wait to download this 🙂

  • ABM was the first and only app I’ve ever paid for… I love your style and your site. And, GOOD LORD, I’ve been looking for and testing out many a user friendly photo booth app for AGES! So, of course, you guys were making one! 😀 I just purchased it and tested it it out and WOW! It’s exactly what I was looking for! Hooray! You guys are just awesome!

  • Please tell me you guys are thinking about releasing it for Nokia too! Because I use it. Don’t say no because otherwise I may have to buy an iphone! No way that I am missing out on this app! Love to you guys. Super talented team always surprising us!

  • This is amazing!! You guys are all amazing too! 😉

    I have loved seeing the little instagram peeks for the last we while so as soon as I saw it was out I bought it of course! I love that the internet means those of us on the other side of the world can get it at the same time too! 🙂

    Well done ABM team! You deserve all the success you have worked so hard for!

  • Got the app- love the design and it’s easy to use! Super excited to post somethings using the app! Great job!

  • I can not wait to get home and buy this, I love the idea of it, CONGRATULATIONS on another awesome app!

  • Looks super fun! Congratulations! I was thinking maybe your first app wasn’t as successful on the android market because of the later release date. Right now people are hyped and buying because it’s being so heavily promoted, but when the hype dies down, android users might be less likely to buy. You can probably guess what kind of phone I have. 😉

  • Finally a group of smart and super talented people, who I admire so much, came up with the most PERFECT app! You have no idea how many times I’ve searched for an app with a decent photobooth option. And a stop motion option too? Whaaaaat! You guys are amazing! It’s all I’ve been looking for, can’t wait to use it over and over and over! Super congrats!!!

  • Just bought it! Playing around with it right now!

  • This is a FUN APP.

    I can’t wait to play with it tomorrow when my kids are up. Great job, you guys!

  • So pumped! I just bought this AND the Beautiful Mess app. Don’t know what I was waiting for!

  • I’d donate to the fund! All of the teases on instagram makes me really want this app!

  • Just wondering if you guys plan to add any new packs to the app in the future? Thanks for any info in advance. 🙂

  • Love the idea of the stop animation – I think that particular function will set your app. apart from others. Very fun idea. Very clever and fun – what I would expect from A Beautiful Mess!

  • I love the first app, so this one looks just as amazing!
    I can’t wait to try it 🙂


  • This is so exciting!! Going over to the app store to buy it now!! 🙂 Congrats, ladies!

  • Is this available everywhere yet? I just went to the app store and I only see one app for you all…is this the second app you have made? I am dying to try it…..its funny, I was just telling my husband tonite over dinner how I wanna do a stop action video of him making an upcycled spoon link bracelet to post on our website. Then I was instagram and saw your post about this app! Cant wait until I can get it!!

  • Can we import images already in our camera roll to make a .gif or photobooth strip? Really looking forward to trying this out! 🙂

  • I was disappointed to see you couldn’t upload photos from your camera roll too… Will there be an update with this option?

  • I’m shocked it only sold 1/20 on Android (I purchased it) but I guess Android users aren’t as cool as I am (kidding). Aw, well I hope one day you will be able to add this app to Android because it looks awesome and you have one definite Android buyer!

  • I am in loooove with this app. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!

  • Any idea when you may have this Android? I’ve seen a few of my iphone friends use it and LOVE it, just wish it was for android.

  • This app looks awesome! I know ithe situation w/Android, is it the same for Windows phone users?

  • I can’t wait for the first update so I can use photos from my photo library! Love the app besides not having access to my library photos.

  • YOU GUYS!!! This app is amazing! It’s so clever and fun and I can’t wait to play around with it!

    Your video/gifs are so cute!

  • I just bought it! I’m SO excited that you can save them as gifs! You guys are even cooler.

  • Similar to Lizzy, your app was the first (and only) app I’ve paid for and I love it!

    Congrats on the new app, it looks awesome! (May be enough for me to convert to an iPhone. 😉 )

  • Yes to this, I would definitely donate! Kickstarter or Indiegogo are options as well! And Emma should totally make a cookbook, how fun would that be?

  • When I’m taking pictures with the manual setting, I lost track of how many pictures I had left. The automatic settings lets you know how many are left but the manual doesn’t. That would be a nice feature. Since that happened I wasn’t able to add more pictures and the whole video was unusable, I wasn’t able to add my final product. I’ll tag you on IG 🙂

  • My girls and I have been blowing the app up today. It is so much fun!

  • Who do we email about technical problems?
    I love the app but I accidentally clicked that Party!Party! can’t access my photos and now it gives me an error each time I try to save it. I’ve even tried deleting it and reinstalling it but same problem!

    Great job on it though! I love the idea. Now to only get it to work for me..

  • I would totally donate too. 🙂

    Seriously, though, you guys are super talented. Way to go, team! Looks like another great product–I wish you continued success!

  • Loving the #partypartyapp so far!! I’ve been playing with the functions all evening! Just wondering, are you planning on including a feature that would allow you to upload photos to the app directly from your camera roll? That way we could use photos we take with our DSLRs, or even photos friends have taken on their Androids who can’t use the app?
    Keep it up!

  • I have to admit that I never buy apps but this looked just too awesome to pass up! Pretty excited to use it!!!

  • I just downloaded the app and am having a lot of fun…but I keep getting an error message whenever I try to upload the pic. Anyone else having that issue?

  • Hi guys!
    The app is so much fun!
    One problem, though: changing contrast and brightness doesn’t seem to do a thing?! I hope this can be fixed..
    Love from Austria 🙂

  • Guys, I’m obsessed. So obsessed that I immediately made a selfie gif to use as the photo of myself on my portfolio website. Thank you!

  • This is pretty awesome 🙂

    BTW, have you thought about crowdsourcing the Android App? Like kickstarter or something? Maybe it’s a way not to risk with a big investment 🙂

  • I too am an Android user that would loooove this app!! It looks so fun! Great idea!! Is this why we’ve been seeing so many gifs on the blog recently?? 🙂

  • Got it!! Is the first time I bought and app!! greetings from Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

  • How great is that! I can’t wait to try this, very well done!

  • Congratz on the second app! I’m an Android user and I hope one day to be able to get my hands on it and would happily donate 🙂

  • Got it! Add me to the list of people who want to be able to use pictures from my photo roll – so glad you plan to add that feature. How about the ability to add my own sounds? Hope to see an upgrade with additional borders, doodles, texts (more handwritten) and phrases in ABM soon too. Love that app.

  • Congrats! Just bought it and can’t wait to use it this weekend at a wedding!

  • I second this idea! I would donate for sure. I need this in my life. 🙂 I have the ABM app on android and LOVE it! it was the first and ONLY app I have paid for!

  • This looks like a lot of fun can’t wait to try it out

  • We’re right there with you. We chose to launch without uploading for a couple reasons: (1) It’ll require some pretty heavy lifting from a development standpoint and (2) more importantly we wanted people to get a feel for making something in the moment first.

    But we absolutely plan to add uploading to our first big update.


  • You know, that’s not a bad idea. We are actively looking for a reliable Android developer, because it’s just such a huge market. It’s just harder to be profitable on Android for some reason. We just need to figure out what makes it tick.

    People like you are exactly why we know we can’t just turn our backs on it forever, because, well, you guys are awesome and super supportive.

    Thanks so much!

  • awwwww was so excited to support you again, but unfortunately i’m one of the androids.

  • Wow, you guys are unstoppable, working at so many projects at once! I can’t believe you had time (and the ideas!) to make a completely new app! Congrats on the launch and I can’t wait to check it out! 🙂

  • Congrats on the second App! I hope all the work will pay you off 😀

    Waiting for Android. (And the Home Decor Book.)

  • Great app!!

    The only thing I miss is to be able to use pictures thats already in my photolibrary. I understand the point of a photobooth but it would be even more useful if you could do both. It’s a really fun idea and I love the filters!!!

    Congrats from Sweden.

  • just bought it and I haven’t tested it out yet (my phone is at service) but Im sure if will love it as much as abm app c::

  • Such talented PEOPLE! Thank you for creating this FUN app.
    I just purchased it. Can’t wait to share the happiness 🙂

  • This is so cool. I just purchased it! Earlier this year, I was trying to make a stop motion video to post on Instagram, for a promotion I was doing and I could NOT figure out how to do it. This will be SO much fun!!

  • I hope that you do decide to release the app for Android! It looks pretty awesome!

  • how about if we start a whatchamacallit….basically a fund so we android users can get this because im seriously bummin hard.
    whoever donates get the app for free!
    whoever donates more gets like a little hey! thanks for supporting us package!
    and so on!
    whats that website called gofundme? or something?

    just throwing it out there because i really want this app! 🙁 but ill never get an iphone in my life.

    is that also the reason why androids didnt get the ABM update as well?

    either way congrats!
    and a random question….emma!, have you thought of maybe publishing a cook book!? i love everything you make! or maybe gather all your recipes and make it an e-course or something like that!
    that would be pretty sweet!

  • Yay, just bought it and looovin it! Well done guys ??
    One thing I miss, would love to be able to use pictures that are already on my phone. This is not possible at the moment, right?

    Happy celebrating!!?

    Andrea xx

  • This is by far one of the cutest, coolest, and most clever photo apps ever! You’re taking this photo app game to a whole new level now! >:)
