  • On a Mac, you can share your Snaptiles with anyone that has iPhoto. 
  • On an Apple TV, you can share your Snaptiles directly to people's TVs.
  • For iPhone and iPad, you can share your Snaptiles straight into the 'shared' section of the photos app.
  • For people without Apple devices, you can share via a web link.
