Best Child Sharing Private App

I’ve been using this app for almost 4 years now, since my child was born and don’t know what we would do without it! I love that only close family and friends who wanna be bombarded with my kid’s photos are able to see them. It is easy to use, grandparents can order their own prints and organized timeline makes it a breeze to see old photos by age(make collections) and date. We love looking through it at the end of our day and reminiscing like they say, “the days are long but the years are short”. I can’t wait to use this app for our next child.

All my nieces and nephews are also on here and it’s wonderful to be able to go to one site and see them all...for the aunties and uncles as well as the grandparents. We share statistics like weight and height which is also helpful when it comes to gifting for their birthdays and holidays.

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.

Pretty good FB alternative

Overall I like this app. We use it to share what’s going on with out friends and family. From what I can tell, they respect user privacy which is the distinction from FB.

So, the bottom line is that it’s good. That said, here is what concerns me and/or I’d like to see I. Future versions:

1. They don’t update that often. That’s concerning because it makes me think their revenue model isn’t working and they could go under any day. Then what happens to all the content I’ve invested?

2. I wish I could create paragraphs. Everything is one huge paragraph. It seems like a small thing but not being able to properly format your writing kinda stinks.

3. The signup process for people that you give access to is a bit wonky. I’ve had to help people get through it, and it should just be easy.

4. Other people can contribute to your feed. I don’t like that. I want to manage who can and cannot add posts to my family’s feed. I especially want to be able to delete anything I don’t approve of.

5. I wish the max number of words allowed for for stories was longer. Sometimes I want to write an actual story. Crazy.

I pay the monthly fee for the HD video upload. I think it’s worth it. I like this app. I’m just nervous it’s not getting much attention
