Easily send photos from your phone to your email in as few as two taps.
SnapToMe makes photo forwarding simple. All it does is take a picture and send it to a pre-set email address--an easy solution for users new to smartphones, or anyone who wants to streamline the process.
At startup, you will be prompted to enter an email address where your photos will be sent. You can change it later through the settings menu.
After you’ve tried the free SnapToMe, please check out SnapToMe Plus for additional features:
* Email an unlimited number photos at once*
* When without service or Internet connection, store and queue photos to send later
* Configure to use WiFi only
Please note that photos taken using SnapToMe are not normally stored in your phone’s gallery, however this may vary by model.
*The number of photos attached to an email may be limited by your email service. The ability to send emails with many attachments may be inhibited by the bandwidth of your connection or the limitations of your data plan if using your cell service.
You configure a destination email address the first time you run the app. For maximum flexibility, make it your own email address. Then you can review the picture and download/upload it or forward to anyone, anywhere from your inbox. Or, if you routinely use a photo sharing service such as Flickr, which has an email upload feature, use that email address instead and go from phone to Flickr in two quick clicks.
Note that, with this free version, you do have to have cell service at the time you use the app and sending the email can take a LONG time depending on the size of the photo file your camera generates and the vagaries of the cell network you are transmitting through. Don’t shut down the app while the Send is in progress, though, or you will lose your photo. (The paid version improves this delay AND can queue up photos to send later when you get back in range of a cell tower.)
You can use the Notes button to enter a Subject for the email and as much text for the body of the email as you want. If you don’t use Notes before you press Send, the email subject line and the name of the photo will always be SnapToMe appended with the date and time. If you do enter your own subject, that will also be used for the name of the photo. This means that typing in a Subject before you hit Send can make it much, much easier to be able to search your email/harddrive for a specific photo.
If you like the idea of how SnapToMe works but you don't like installing apps that ask for location permission and you don't need to record where you took your photos, please check out MyDumbBoard, STM's sibling app.
Recent update summary:
* Based on user feedback, we’ve moved the buttons to the four corners of the camera. This makes it much easier to use the app in bright sunlight and much harder to hit Discard or Send unintentionally. Thanks to Dave B. for identifying the issue.
* We’ve reformatted the lat/long string in the email to be more search-able. Now you can simply copy-and-paste the lat/long out of the email and into a Search box. Thanks to Bruce T. for pointing out this rather d’oh issue.
* To make processing photos go faster and be more reliable, we’ve removed the EXIF-writing code we added a while back. It was worth trying since it allowed us to correct the photo’s internal date/time for a handful of phones that didn’t set it correctly in the first place but hasn’t been worth the cost in reliability.
* Added progress dialog to be shown after Capture before Send is enabled. Some phones take an appreciable amount of time to process the image after Capture is pressed. This progress dialog will help the user know the app is ready for Send to be pressed.
* Allow the app to be moved to an SD card.
Made exact image width scaling an option, disabled by default. This will fix freezes on slower phones.
* The picture’s file name, date, time, and location are listed in the email and the location is a clickable link to Google Maps.
* The photo is now preserved if the user exits the app before the photos are sent.
* The user interface has been improved with larger, more intuitive buttons.
* The camera now makes a ‘shutter sound’ when a picture is snapped.
