Yes, SmugMug does have an iPad app that can be found in the Apple App Store. Also for users that have migrated to the New SmugMug, the new design works flawlessly on the iPad without needing the app to display your photos in Safari.
This is your Home page. The first time you open the app, we'll ask if you want to log in. If you don't have an account or just want to browse as a guest, tap anywhere outside of the text bubble.
You can always log in later by touching the Log In button in the upper left corner. Logging in allows you to skip entering your viewing passwords as well as see your unlisted galleries.
Browsing and Viewing
You can view any SmugMug account and "bookmark" it on your Home page: yours, your friends, or your favorites. Hit the little plus button in the upper left corner to get started:
Enter the nickname of the Smugger you'd like to view. If it's a match, we'll place an icon with their Bio photo on your Home page.
Made a mistake? Tap to open the account and you'll see a little minus sign in the upper right corner. Click that and the user will be removed from your Home page.
Add as many accounts as you like. Click the thumbnail with their name below it to view all public categories on their site. Tap any category to explore it. Within a gallery, swipe left / right to navigate different pages of the gallery. Tap any thumbnail to view it as large as your iPad allows, or as large as the photographer has permitted in their gallery settings.
Tip: If you can't see your photos in passworded or unlisted galleries, External Linking in your gallery may be off. Check your gallery settings by using a regular web browser to log in to your site.
Note: If a gallery is set with a viewing password, you must enter it properly to be able to see the photos inside it. Logging in will bypass this prompt because we know they're your own photos.
The "plus" icon that appears at the top of any Smugmug site, category, or gallery will allow you to add it to your app's Home page.
You'll see a "minus" icon if the page you're looking at has already been added to your Home page. Click this to remove it.
Click the "Globe" icon in the upper right corner to exit the app and view the gallery in the iPad Safari browser.
Click the "Home" icon to return to your Home page.
If you see a "Save" button, this means you can save all photos in that gallery for offline view. Read more below.
Movies are right in your hands. Tap the Play button to load the video, and while it's playing, tap again to bring up the timeline where you can fast forward, rewind, or pause.
You can enlarge to full-screen view, too. Hit the two little arrows at the bottom right corner and then the white "zoom" box at the upper right. This will fit the video to the full screen, or you can tap again to watch it in its native size.
Note: You can double tap anywhere to zoom in/zoom out, too.
To close the full-screen view, hit the blue "Done" button in the upper left. You can return to the gallery by tapping anywhere in the window to bring up the top menu bar.
Tap and hold your finger down to bring up the menu. You can save the display copy to your iPad library, or copy the image and paste it into other apps (such as your email.)
Note: Right-Click Protection will foil this feature!
You can use Saved photos as your iPad background, or email them to your friends! Exit the app and view your iPad's photo library to access those features.
As you browse galleries, the app will automatically store them for offline viewing. Visit the app's main page and click the Storage button in the upper right to see how many you've saved as you've browsed.
You can download galleries in bulk, which is useful if you plan to show your photos when you may not have access to WiFi.
- Open up the gallery you want.
- Click the Save button in the top menu bar. Depending on the size of the gallery, this can take a while so just keep this in mind.
- As the app saves them, you'll see the borders of each thumbnail turn white.
- You can keep saving photos even while the downloading is in progress. We'll remember them in a queue, which you can check by clicking your Home page Storage button.
