If you are worried about the security of leaving your iPad in a public place. Mailing List has a password feature which allows the iPad to be semi-permanently embedded in a custom stand or enclosure.
With the iPads 'home' button physically covered, the public are unable to tamper with the ipad or exit the Mailing Mist app. The password feature allows you to edit your advertising campaigns without removing the iPad.
PLEASE NOTE: When importing images for the 'overlay', emailing the image to the iPad preserves transparency. Sync (via iTunes) appears to make all images opaque .
At 14 bucks, this is one of the most expensive apps I've purchased so far, and I have to admit, I was miffed by the high price at first.
But the fact is, this is one of the few apps I've bought that I haven't found disappointing. I used it as a kind of kiosk for my booth at a convention recently, and it worked flawlessly.
I collected tons of emails and displayed slides of my artwork. I couldn't be happier with it.
For those who only gave it one star, I'm curious - what were looking for exactly?
My biggest complaint is that it would be nice to have a customizable field, and it would be nice to be able to display more than 5 slides, but neither of those things were really a deal-breaker for me.
Normally I would deduct a star for those shortcomings, but again, I'm just so thrilled to finally download an app that's intuitive, useful, and actually works like it's supposed to, that I went ahead and bumped it up to five stars.
Off to a good start, but needs more flexibility
I purchased this app for trade shows. I thought it would be a great way to collect some email addresses from potential customers. I love how easy it works and how you can secure it by password so that people can't exit the slideshow (I just need to find a way to secure the home button from being pressed).
My biggest complaint is that there is no way to customize the mailing list fields outside of the 4 fields included (name, mobile ph, home ph, email). I would like to add address and separate first and last name and some other custome fields. Please add this functionality soon.
This App is brilliant! I created my trade-show within minutes. The overlay idea is great and the App usage is simple and very efficient. It's also easy for potential customers to enter their information so it will bring you tons of new contacts. Fields are enough for my taste: All I need is a name and an email-address to get the business going.
5 stars and thumbs up! Thank you for this great App!
