Who doesn't love a good app? At BeingDad we certainly do! One of our favourite baby apps has been FamilyAlbum. Our whole family have downloaded it and it is a winner with them too.
Essentially FamilyAlbum is a private photo sharing app. You can choose who you invite into your group and then share all your photos safe in the knowledge that only they will see them. It works across platforms, we have family using iPhones, iPads, Android phones and even an ancient desktop.
It allows us to share photos quickly and easily throughout our family. It also means that we don't spam our social media accounts with pictures of Evie as we all know how annoying that is! Once we share a photo, or 2 everyone in the network gets a notification. They can them comment away, much like a private Facebook or Instagram.
What else does the app do?
Every month the app puts together memories, a collection of the most popular photos from the previous month. If you pay you can get a range of physical items including a photo book for just $7.35 (£5.50ish), we have these for every month so far and enjoy flicking back through them. For a shocking $33 (£25) you can get your photos and comments on a CD - I'm not quite sure I see the point of this given all of the photos are on a screen anyway?!
I really can see us using this app for years to come. I certainly hope they keep it live as it'll be great to look back on in a few years time.
