When do you need TapWarp?

Large community sites often have such apps, so you do not need TapWarp in this case. But if you own a website and need to upload images often, then TapWarp is your best friend.

For example, you have an e-commerce site, then you will often need to upload pictures of goods. Especially if you sell original goods or used goods, then you have to take photos by yourself, because no other people can prepare a set of uniform pictures and share with you. The process of upload is in fact quite tedious. According to requirements of different websites, you may need to transfer images to a computer, resize the images, then upload them to a specific page through a browser.

But if the website supports TapWarp API, it will become easy, you only need to scan a QR-code with TapWarp, images will be uploaded. Size, etc, can be encoded in QR codes, the app will automatically transform images and then upload them. Thus totally removes operations such as manual image edit. Meanwhile, websites can directly receive images within specs, remove the burden of further image processing.
