Instant Gratification

Those of you who read my blog posts know that I am a big fan of using the iPad as an extremely effective tool for presenting dentistry to your patients. A few weeks ago, I suggested downloading the DDS GP app to your iPad in order to take advantage of the beautifully designed drawings and graphics that illustrate dental problems and the solutions to those problems.

Another great enhancement for your iPad is Shuttersnitch. Shuttersnitch is an app (the cost is a mere $19.99) that receives and displays pictures wirelessly on an iPad moments after they are shot. Instead of taking digital photos and then plugging the memory card into a laptop in order to upload the photos, there now is a much simpler and less cumbersome way to accomplish the task.

As long as you are using a digital SLR wi-fi enabled camera to take your photos, Shuttersnitch is the perfect partner for the wireless image transfer system in your camera. It takes in the photos and almost instantly displays them on the iPad’s 9.7 inch screen. Shuttersnitch has specific support of wireless SD memory cards from Eye-Fi, but can also accept pictures from any camera transmitter that is capable of an FTP transfer. Shuttersnitch provides a detailed set up guide, and I am told that you don’t have to be a computer whiz to figure this all out.

I firmly believe that high tech equals high reward. Once you take the time to get comfortable with the mechanics, your case acceptance should skyrocket.
