Shutterfly Up For Sale

Shutterfly_3

If Ahni and Zoe don’t meet your needs, Shutterfly is now up for sale. Unlike Ahni and Zoe, Shuttterfly has four mobile apps, as well as the ability to order various photo products, including prints, photo books, mugs, and mouse pads, directly from the internet. Shutterfly’s apps even generate revenue, unlike many popular and highly valued mobile apps.

Unfortunately some work is required since Shutterfly may post its first loss since 2006 this year. For more details see Why Shutterfly is (probably) going private and The press gets it wrong about Shutterfly’s business.
