Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I was looking for
I wanted a photo sharing app where I could share pictures with my family and only my family. I also wanted something with online albums for easy sorting and some way to write down notes. I wasn’t interested in something that I would constantly have to update privacy settings or pick and choose which groups could see which pictures. This app has everything I wanted and it doesn’t have anything I didn’t want (hope that makes sense). I love that it is by invite only. I love that everything is well organized. I have consistently used this app for many years and it is still relevant and useful to me.
Good app, could be great with some improvements
This app allows you to have a private platform with select family and friends to share photos with it, however I agree with previous commenters saying that it has not been innovative in keeping up with technology like other photo apps. I think the $3.99/month upgrade to have HD videos at 3 minutes in length should be a given with this app- especially considering this is standard now with most other tech platforms. I like the app, I just don’t love it. Sadly I think if another app came to my attention that was similar but was more up-to-date in bug fixes and had more of these features built in, I would switch. For now, I’ll keep using this one, and will have hope the developers of the app will make some adjustments as I do feel the app has great potential.
Cannot recommend enough!
I have been using 23snaps since the very beginning and 4+ years later, I still use it every single day! I love knowing that my content is private and is only going to friends and family members that I’ve personally invited. As a mom of three little boys, their safety is my top priority, and 23snaps makes me feel secure - PLUS it’s so well organized! I enjoy being able to scroll through the past with ease and being able to look up our kids individually. I also love that it shows how old your child is on the day the entry was made! I am constantly telling people about this app and cannot recommend it enough!
