One of Santa’s elves, apparently on a test run, crashed through my roof last night, sending an industrial sleigh and all its contents crashing into my sofa where I had been perched moments before, watching ALF reruns, next to a bag of expired Valentine’s Day chocolates and a stuffed animal of ambiguous origin (possibly Yeti-related).

My Yeti remained unscathed, but the sweets were done for. I tried to check on the elf (who had since rolled into the fetal position), but when I tapped it on the shoulder, I received a torrent of pepper spray in the eyes. “This stays between us,” the elf shouted, making for the door and dragging the sleigh with it. “Remember, Elf knows where you live!”

Here’s what’s new!
- Print Edited Photos: We’re thrilled (thrilled, I say!) to announce that you can now print your edited photos using our app. There was a tricky little bug that took a while for our engineer to track down, but if you make edits to your photos using any editing apps (e.g. Instagram, iPhone’s photo editor, etc.), the new photo will now print! Huzzah!
- We also found more bugs, which I promptly baked into a pie and ate. Not super delicious, but very much in the upcycling holiday spirit!

Happy holidays! We’ll see you in 2014. I’ve got a roof to duct-tape!

    Enough said.

  • Don’t order square pictures

    by passepartoot

    Nice app, but the won’t process square pictures, though they will charge you for it. Have a problem? They don’t respond to “Contact us.” I tried this several times.

  • Love this app!!!

    by Cool legumes

    This app is SO cool! It's useful and seems too good to be true, but it's not. I tried it for the first time, choosing 10 pictures to print. I downloaded the app, selected prints, sent them off to Walgreens, and they were ready for pick up within just a few minutes! The whole process took less than 10 minutes from the time I downloaded the app, until pictures were ready for pick up. The pics turned out crystal clear, too. So easy! Love, love, love it!

  • Kicksend app.

    by Smm1129

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! I've been waiting for something like this to come along to be able to print my iPhone pics without losing their resolution!!! Highly recommend it!! Print quality was awesome!

  • Easy Peasy

    by Roe1951

    Love this app. Took just a few minutes to add pics and off they went to be processes. Sent mine to Target and they were done quickly. Nice quality prints!

  • Awesome!

    by Suzmoriarty

    Super easy and convenient!

  • Great service

    by MaryJ75225

    I used Kicksend to send photos to my mom, who doesn't do email attachments, so she was thrilled to have them. However, I made a mistake in the shipping address and noticed that when I got the confirmation. I emailed customer service. The order was already in process so they sent another set to the corrected address. It's quick, easy and the photos were great.

  • My New Favorite App :) Amazing!!!

    by Coolest App Ever!!! -David

    I absolutely LOVE this App! I use it for sending pictures I've taken with my iPhone to my local CVS, 2 miles down the road. Emails were sent to me once CVS revieved my pictures from the app, and then around an hour later once the photos were ready for pickup. Like another reviewer, I have never written a review on any app, or anything else for that matter, but I wholeheartedly love and recommend this app! Cool and convenient!!!

  • Great App with an amazing customer support

    by Captain Tita

    This is indeed an amazing App. So easy to use and customer service is highly professional and friendly !!!

  • Brilliant!

    by Aaron Vowels

    My wife found Kicksend first, but when I saw how easy it was and how great the prints turned out, I was hooked. Not expensive, right to your door delivery (if you prefer), and their user satisfaction department is labeled "customer happiness." Of course, that's what we're all looking for, right?! To be happy with our photos the first time. I look forward to more Kicksend usage in the future.

  • Best App EVER!

    by Dck3377

    This app is absolutely wonderful. It's Incredibly easy to use and convenient. If you take ANY pictures with your smartphone you will want this app! Download it now!!!

  • Best App Ever!! Wish I would have known sooner!

    by Lacyjanelle78

    Best app ever! If your like me, you have 4000+ pics on your phone. This app accesses your photos, lets you choose the ones you want to print, locates the nearest photo printing centers, and emails you as soon as they are ready for pickup! Best part is.. It tells you which places print instagram 4x4 pics which for me is a must! I wish i would have known about it sooner!!!

  • Love!!

    by Cathyzeledon

    I just got my pics in the mail & they are great! I ordered 35 pics & came out to like $15. Shipping is very quick too! The pics come out exactly like u have them on your phone! Will defiantly continue to order!!

  • Carm

    by Goumbaa

    Great prints and very convenient.

  • they did a lousy job

    by Momo1955

    i tried this app to print some pictures and was very disapointed. my 4 year old grandson knows how to size the picture to the paper. my mistake was assuming the technician that printed my pictures did too. of the 36 pictures i had printed, half had to be returned because they weren't properly formatted. tops and sides of heads had been cut off. now i have to have those reprinted somewhere else. what a waste of my time this was.

  • Didn't work

    by Krissy343

    I tried twice to send photos to cvs and it didn't work. Both times it told me that they were sent, but when I checked on them, they hadn't received anything.

  • Photos no longer stuck on my phone!

    by CBKY2

    I am in love with this app! There may be other way so printing pictures from my phone, but I can't imagine an easier one. I have been able to order prints on a 10-minute break at work, while my kids are playing, and while waiting for dinner to cook. The quality of the prints is fantastic. And the Kicksend team has sent me personal emails just to see how I like the app and my prints. Download it now!

  • Wow

    by Hipchik_leah

    Great app

  • Could be amazing

    by Michael Belisle

    Would be a 5 star app but I get kicked out every time I start selecting photos. It just shuts down. Please fix! This would be an awesome app to be able to have. Thanks

  • Awful

    by Kickboxingrunner

    Ordered prints in 1/10, went to CVS that evening to get them since I had an email. Not ready. Today, 1/31 got another email and called the store. Finally 2 weeks later I can pick them up when I'm out of town for the event I wanted the pictures for!

  • Awesomeeee!

    by KDoss116

    Amazing app! My prints came out great and the app is so easy to use! Love it!

  • Mom-in-law won't disown me now - Happy customer!

    by Genevieve F

    This app just made me a better daughter-in-law! I've captured tons of fun family photos on my phone and share them easily with others via text, email, or social media. But my mother-in-law is not online and though I keep promising her prints, as a busy parent, I never seem to have the time to get it done. My husband does not have a smart phone or camera (I know - ridiculous), so the photo thing is all on me. Just tried Kicksend for the first time the other day when we were getting ready to head to my mom-in-law's. Hooray! Interface was super easy to navigate and the process was simple and quick. Picked up photos 20 minutes later at the drugstore and showed up at mom-in-law's house a hero. I will definitely be using this app again! Thank you!

  • Great Way to Mail Pics to Grandparents

    by LA guy12

    Kicksend is finally the app i can use to quickly & EASILY send pics of the kids to the grandparents. i love that this works so seamlessly.

  • Love this app!

    by Nikkimarmar

    This app is amazing. It's easy to get pictures printed off you phone to your local photoshop!

  • Kicksend

    by Sr KK

    Fantastic!! I needed a few photos rather quickly& I found this Ap. I ordered them from Walgreens & they emailed me within a few minutes that they were ready for pickup. They did a fantastic job. The quality was great. I will definitely use them again. Will also recommend them to my family & friends.

  • 5 stars

    by McKayyyy

  • Kicksend!

    by Betzielou

    I recently downloaded this app & used it today. I was very satisfied with it. It was easy to use & emails kept me up to date on the process of printing/ready to pick up. And received an email wanting to know if I was satisfied.

  • Great app!!

    by Tay1111112

    My photos turned out great! I think this is an awesome service. I hate going somewhere and printing pictures so this was the perfect solution. I have already told multiple friends about the kicksend app! I will definitely use kicksend in the future!

  • Finally!

    by Missjopa

    I can't tell you how easy this was to use! Generally when I try to print out photos, it becomes this frustrating three hour long project, so finding this was such a delight. I selected a store, selected my photos and done. I got an email the next morning saying my photos were ready for pick up down the road. Thank you!

  • Superb

    by Lovelin Descalso

    Tried and true. Got my print at the closest location frm me. Ordered late at night... Woke up to notification saying my prints were ready for pick up. Sooo convenient since I can just pick it up right away versus waiting 5-10+ days for it to be delivered. I ordered a bunch of 4x6 and 2 8x10. Came out great. Great price. Totally affordable. New satisfied customer! Thank you.

  • Both Quality and Quantity!

    by Timika Simmons

    I'm a busy mom of 3 with a full time executive job. This app allowed me to print photos from my phone that I've been storing for years! Very easy to use. Worked great with my local pharmacy. Received email alerts when prints were ready. Orders on my lunch break and picked up my quality prints on the way home! Finally able to complete my family photo album collections. Thanks!

  • Couldn't be easier...

    by Silver Fish

    The prints are great and the process couldn't have been easier. I will definitely use Kicksend for all future orders; customer service has been great!

  • LOVE IT!

    by Megrpoo

    I found this app while trying to print a ton of photos from my Instagram feed. It was so easy to download, pick the photos, search for the print shop, and send them off. Everything was so quick and seamless! Can't recommend this app enough!

  • Quality prints

    by Wesyltm02

    I like the quality of these prints! I have been frustrated with shutterfly cropping pics and cutting out important parts of my pics and that does not happen here! There are a couple issues with the happen (sometimes it freezes up when uploading the pics and you have up start over) (sometimes if you go back to add more pics it empties the ones you've already added) but it's easy to use and the quality if the pics are good!

  • Kicksend review

    by BethanyR123

    I absolutely love the app kicksend! I had a lot of pictures on my iPhone that I wanted to print out and this app made it SO easy to print to my nearest location! I would DEFINITELY recommend this app! :)


    by Me likey!!"!"!"!

    Not only was this SO convenient, but I got an email from the company asking if I was satisfied with the print the day I picked it up. I could tell it was a personal email Bc punctuation was pretty poor haha but the point was that they care about their users and you don't find that anymore. I highly highly recommend this. I never print pics Bc it's usually such a 'job' and as a single mom with 3 kids I need things to be EASY. And this was.

  • Fantastic!

    by CincyWestie

    I've used Kicksend twice now and could not be happier! The prints are high quality and ordering is super easy. First time I had them mailed, but today I needed them in time for art class tonight so I placed the order for pick-up at a nearby Walgreen's; they were ready an hour later. What could be simpler? Great service, great results!

  • Super easy...and fast!

    by Beautyproductlover

    This app is perfect for getting my iPhone photos made into real prints with just a click of a button. They were printed within a few hours at my local CVS and I just paid and was on my way. So quick and easy. I will certainly use this app anytime I need prints in a hurry or just prints in general. Nice work!

  • Love this app!

    by Theresa Verrelle

    Really easy to use. It tells you the closest store that prints photos.You get emails when your pictures are ready for pick-up. And the quality of the pics is great!

  • Only limited to camera roll

    by Аchille

    The app is limited to select photos from the camera roll. It won't allow selecting from the photo stream, an album or a shared photo stream. I promise to make this a 5 star review once you guys add this feature.

  • Best photo transfer app ever!

    by Jess f jtown

    I never write reviews. I read the reviews on this app, went with it, and hell ya! I used it to transfer a few pictures from my iPhone to my local cvs. I downloaded the app, it found my cvs For me, asked me which pictures (which were clearly organized and easy to select), pressed done and Picked them up an hour later. It took less than 5 minutes. U know what..I bet it took less than 3 minutes. Awesome. Def recommend.

  • Best app ever!

    by LRW & CCW

    Using this app was so easy. I have thousands of pictures on my phone and I dread the process of downloading then onto the computer and then transferring them onto a flashdrive and then taking them to get printed. With this app I had all my pictures ordered within 10 minutes and they were ready for pick up in an hour. It was fast, easy and not expensive.
