My only complaint
I like this frame very much, but I have one complaint and it’s kinda big deal. I see others do as well. The shuffle is horrible!!! I feel like it shows the same pictures over and over I currently have 700 pictures in my frame and not only does it just show them all in the same order- the same day the pic was taken but it also just shows the same photos over and over. I noticed in the app as well so many pictures are blocked out so I have no idea what they are and they don’t play. I end up uploading the same photos again because it’s just a white box. Extremely annoying... So yess that’s very frustrating!! Besides that I guess it’s a good frame. I really hope they get this issue fixed and then I think it would be the perfect frame
Good idea but needs some fixes
I have been helping my in-laws set this up as they got this for a gift. I set it up on their iPad. It was disappointing that there is not an iPad version of the app only an iPhone sized one. I added photos from the iPad. If it is in landscape mode it will crop the portrait photos and vice versa. It would be nice to have the option to display the full photo without having it cropped.
I sent out invites to share photos to all the kids and grandkids emails through the app. No one received any emails. I thought it may be delayed due to Christmas Day volume. After digging on their website, it turns out that you must have the app to share photos. Fine but how is anyone supposed to know that? It would be nice if they would send out an email inviting you to download the app and join.
The motion sensor on the frame is inconsistent at best to swipe the photos.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for sharing feedback about your experience with Aura! You can now add black bars to either side of the photo if it is in the opposite orientation of the frame and you would like to display the entire photo on the frame. Just tap "reposition" in the Aura app and then you can pinch your fingers to zoom out until you have the whole photo in the field of view.
We totally agree about the app's usability on an iPad and hope to release an app optimized for tablets in the near future. As soon as it's available we'll let you know.
Regarding the email notifications, that’s a great point and we do typically send an email along with the app notification, however we had an issue with our email service provider which we’ve since resolved that caused a delay in sending emails. Your family should’ve received the emails at this point so please let us know if you still haven’t.
Thank you again for your input - we really value your feedback and want to make sure you have the best possible experience using Aura.
Shuffle or Change Photo Order
Got this for the grandparents for Christmas so that all of the family members can add photos of the grandchildren. One feature that I noticed was missing right away is the ability to change the order or shuffle the photos that have been added to a frame. Shuffling photos should be an easy addition to the app... it would really help when having multiple people add the same frame, so that one families photos are not all clumped together during the slideshow. Or it would be nice in the app to be able to drag and drop photos to rearrange the order in the collection on a particular frame.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
