Simple Booth apps for in-person events only work on devices running Apple's iOS. This includes iPads and iPhones, but not Mac laptops or desktops. The current versions of our apps require you to be updated to iOS version 12 or later (however certain features require iOS 13). Learn how to check which iOS your iPad is on here.
Simple Booth makes a version of our app for iPhone (called Simple Booth), and two that will work on iPad (Simple Booth Classic [formerly Event Edition] and HALO).
Do you recommend an iPad?
We recommend an iPad Pro with Wi-Fi only.
16GB is typically enough disk space for most use cases. If you believe you will be doing a higher volume or will not be able to clear saved photos from the device very often, it may be beneficial to buy an iPad that has more room.
We recommend the Wi-Fi only version because if you have multiple units or need to print, it becomes more practical and cost-effective to run an event over Wi-Fi or with a dedicated hot spot. Still, Simple Booth apps will work with cellular through the iPad if you need.
This page on Apple's site compares all the front facing cameras on their current models. Of course using a higher quality camera can result in higher quality pictures, but keep in mind that lighting also plays a big role!
