The Email Photo feature is used for sharing photos through the app. Users can email photos to an app directly through this feature. They can take a photo and share it, or they can select photos from their device's gallery. This article provides information on how to build the Email Photo feature.
The Email Photo feature is great for these industries:
- Bar and Club
- Band or Musical Artist
Within the feature, the Recent Photos section shows users the pictures they have previously emailed. They are stored locally on the users' devices, and these photos are only visible to the users who sent them. No one else has access to these images, including the app creator. They cannot be removed from the feature unless the app is uninstalled and then reinstalled.
