In an age when apps tend to follow a format – be it a ‘swiping’ dating app, GPS tracking exercise app or scrolling feed social media app – it is refreshing when a company shakes up the app store and starts well and truly from scratch.
Scripin is the embodiment of innovation, using technology to not only enhance and reinvent your app-using experience, but also your real life social life as well.
Using the Scripin app, an event can be made truly interactive. Guests simply download it to their phone and then begin taking photographs. These images are all compiled, and screens around the venue begin showing a moderated photo stream of the pictures taken throughout the event.
Text and comments can be added to the pictures, the images can be liked, and you can explore the profiles of fellow posters.
The concept of the photo booth has been around at parties for years, but Scripin puts the whole party in the booth. It’s like a Polaroid camera for the modern generation – and works as a real atmosphere builder and ice breaker no matter what the event.
“We saw a unique gap in the market for event organisers to add value to their clients’ events, by offering an engaging photo-streaming experience, which is also simple and easy to use, helps amplify the overall guest engagement and increases event revenues” said Jack Rogers, Director of Scripin Events.
And Scripin really do cater for everyone. From social events such as weddings or birthday parties, through corporate functions including conferences and award ceremonies to festivals and sporting events, the company says that their app works anywhere.
Interestingly, data can be compiled after the event, wherein moderators can see how many users signed in, how many videos and photos were taken and how many likes and comments were made. But this isn’t really the point of the app – it’s main attraction is how it draws people together and truly unites the party.
Rewriting the social rulebook, Scripin have brought events firmly into the 21st-Century, marrying socialising and surfing in the most atmospheric of ways. Never before has it been so acceptable to be on your phone at a party.
Scripin licenses start at £250. For more information, see here.
