pwinty raises $200k to help you order photo prints in seconds

British startup pwinty has raised $200k (£125k) in investment from indycube Ventures, alongside the launch of the startup’s new iOS app.

Based in Cardiff, pwinty orders you prints of your iPhone photos in seconds, and its open API lets other apps do the same.

The integration presents new ways for developers to monetise their apps, with over 500 apps and services already signed up.

Opening up

pwinty’s app is the latest in a recent surge of order-prints-easily services to hit the smartphone, including HuggleUp, PhotoBox and even Boomf.

But for its investors, its API could be the factor that sets the startup apart from the rest.

Last month pwinty delivered 120,000 photos to customers through other apps and services including WedPics, the world’s largest wedding app with over a million users.

An extra way to monetise

CEO Tom Gallard says that for developers, the freemium model takes time to bring in much needed revenue.

Our API is really simply to integrate into software, and the developers we’re working with already have noticed a real increase in revenue and active users.
