Walgreens and Kicksend partner up for photo printing straight from your iPhone

Photo sharing and printing just got much more convenient. Drugstore giant Walgreens has teamed up with photography site Kicksend to roll out a new update that will allow Kicksend users to make printing orders directly through their iOS app.

Users can scroll through the album and check mark their selections, then look for a Walgreens logo button to send their order. Like most digital print processes, these pictures can also be available for pickup as early as one hour after the order is confirmed.

This is a neat expansion for both Kicksend and Walgreens; it seems as though digital printing used to be a bit of a pain when one would have to manually upload photos from their cameras, edit, then upload again onto Walgreens’ photo website. With the Kicksend app as the middle man, everything is more seamless. You can also edit your photos in app filters like Instagram first uploading to Kicksend then sending them to Walgreens, giving you cheap Instagram prints whenever you need them. Imagine going on a photo shoot date with a love interest and having photos ready for pick up by the end of your day. Who needs to wait around to send prints from home?

“We’re all about empowering everyday people to stay in touch with people they care about, and our brand new, incredibly seamless photo printing experience through Walgreens’ QuickPrints is a big step in that direction,” Kicksend co-founder and CEO Pradeep Elankumaran said. “There is no better way to share and keep your memories with the people you love.”

It is currently unclear when the Walgreens QuickPrints feature will arrive to Kicksend’s Android version of the app, but for iPad and iPhone users, expect the latest update to show on your device today. If you don’t already have the app, download it for free here.
