For those of us who wish to remember

This app took all the stress out of making a photo book. I made a 26 page book about my experience living vanlife for a season. The hardest and most time consuming part was choosing the photos I wanted to use but once I put them all on an album on my phone, the app would search through that specific album, organizing it by the date each photo was taken. From there you choose the photos you want for each page spread and have the option of adding a title or text to the pages. The app has preselected layouts and after you click through them you also have the ability to rearrange the photos to fit the layout you like. Every thing looks sleek, clean, and like the inside of a kinfolk or other major print publication. Incredibly professional and stylish. I’m recommending this to everybody who goes on a trip, or has an experience they want to hold immortal on the pages of a book.

Easier than I expected

So glad I saw the hilarious ads for this app because it is perfect for me. I have no social media accounts so I don’t share pictures online but I have tons of pictures on my phone. Now I have something to do with all my photos that is easy and affordable. Also my MIL doesn’t have internet so now we can send her these albums to keep. So much easier than printing and mailing pictures!

So happy

I tried a different app to make my photo book but they wouldn’t do it cause some my pictures were taken with an older phone camera (I knew they’d be blurry but wanted them anyway) this app notified me my pictures were low Quality but still printing them any way which makes me so happy

Developer Response ,

Great to hear that! We don't want to block photos with lower quality since they can also be very close to our hearts and be lovely memories! Hope you will enjoy your books many years ahead. /Team Once Upon
