We hope you and your family are keeping safe! We’re living in an incredible moment in history, the likes of which have not been seen in most lifetimes.

Be sure to capture this once-in-a-lifetime experience — you'll want to remember what it was like … and memory grows dim over the years!


Many of our members are using LifeTales as a video diary, documenting their thoughts and experience. Not only can that be therapeutic — it will also be amazing to look back on one day!

Another idea — record some of the activities your family and kids are doing each day during isolation. Tell the story — it's once in a lifetime!


Your kids are at home and you’re trying to find things to keep them occupied? Suggest they do a daily video diary about their experience.

You could suggest they tell stories to their 21 year old self — remind them what they’re experiencing today!


It's not a great idea to visit Seniors right now, especially with the kids — too much danger of viral transmission :(

Keep your Parents/Grandparents engaged and involved in family life, even when they can’t be there with you right now!

You’re probably already video chatting — and that’s terrific. But you can’t spend all day live on video.

How about creating stories for them — or perhaps have the kids create stories — or share your LifeTales about what your family is doing each day.

Imagine how often your parents/grandparents will play a song that your child sings to them!!


Not a problem!

Send them a link to your story. They'll be able to view it on their computer, iPad or mobile phone, just by tapping the link.

No need for your parents/grandparents to create a LifeTales account. A simple tap will do!


LifeTales is the place for all your stories worth remembering — Travel, Child Journals, Memoirs, Family Gatherings, Relationships, Hobbies, Pregnancy Journals, … each story privately shared with *just* the people you choose … archived in a private, safe environment and downloadable to your hard drive at any time.

Way more than just a photo album — you can add the narrative by text or audio — the story behind the pictures — the story that never made it into pictures — the intangibles.

Where have you been all my life!

For the longest time, I was beyond frustrated that there was no place for me to privately document my family life! Instagram is cool but so full of ads, and not private! LifeTales has solved this issue in a beautiful way! I love that I can share each and every entry or collection with specified people, or with no one at all! I love all the different ways I can organize my entries. I love that I can include videos, pictures, writing, and voice recording! LifeTales is a slam dunk for documenting my family and my life! If you are looking for the perfect solution for modern journaling, look no further! Thank you LifeTales!

Love this app!

I’ve always wanted one place to save all my favorite pictures and videos while keeping them private and this is just the app! I love that I can add to it a little bit every day and I don’t have to start the story over. Being able to add a mix of content is awesome as I haven’t found any other app like it.

Amazing for Children’s future!

My wife and I were writing journals in paperback for our kids full of encouragement and love but we were always scared that we would loose them. My with mentioned developing an app that would allow you to journal, add videos, and pictures that would allow our children to access it and whoever the journal was approved to view. I told her well there’s probably someone else who has made that. Sure enough! We found LifeTales! Very good stuff. Would change a few things like how it doesn’t allow someone else to edit an entry you make. But you can add your own entries to same journal so I guess it makes up for it. Just gets crowded.

Developer Response ,

Thanks, tsh100163 😀. FYI - You can also allow others to edit and collaborate on a story with you. Tap the purple Sharing icon under your cover picture. You can then change anyone from a viewer to a Co-creator.
