TL,DR; this app helps you use your memories to improve your quality of life: i.e., to improve your psychological well-being and your relationships

Not convinced? Here are 5 reasons you should use Lumhaa:

You can build a “memory jar” (online diary) for every aspect of your life – your work, workouts, hobbies, and even just your happy thoughts. Every week, add one post – photo, video, note, song, anything works – to your memory jars; and get monthly memory lanes and movies to celebrate your progress and see how far you’ve come!

Life is better together, and so are your memory jars. You can easily invite other people to build memory jars with you by sharing the jar link with them -- for example, if you make a couples memory jar and invite your special someone into it, both of you can add memories and answer fun couple reflection questions in the jar. You can also set reminders (e.g. weekly or monthly) for your jar, and create as many memory jars as you want for your different groups/relationships. Only people you invite inside each memory jar can see what is inside it.

You can also build memory jars for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions – just create the jar, share the link with others to collect their messages, and order physical versions of your jars and memories. The perfect gift!

This entire app is based on our international award-winning psychology research from Princeton, which shows that even 5 minutes with memory jars makes you feel happy, less lonely, and better off in all counts of psychological well-being. If you want to read more about our experiments – conducted across age groups and geographies – you can head over to our website or look up Shriya Sekhsaria’s psychology research

Kidding (not really o.O), but the real 5th reason is that Lumhaa is a healthier alternative to most social media out there – you still get to interact and create content with your favorite people, but don’t have to worry about likes, algos, or influencers. There’s a reason Lumhaa made it to Apple’s Top Social Apps in 50+ countries, just saying :)

Still reading? You’re a curious one, aren’t you?

Well, here are 3 more fun facts for you:

1. RECOMMENDATIONS: Our founder’s 3 favorite jars are the happy jar, birthday jar, and relationship jar

2. BEYOND JARS: We also build customized websites based on your memory jars, like for your family tree or digital scrapbook. You can separately get 3 types of memory-based physical products from the Lumhaa Shop: desi nostalgia souvenirs, reflection games & tools, and handmade products personalized with your memories. Check out the Shop tab in the app to learn more

3. MISSION: We care about 3 Es: Emotions, Economy, and Environment. That’s why we use psychology research as the basis of all our technology, use physical product orders as a dignified source of employment for women in Indian villages, and recycle most of our materials

What’s New

Version 6.3

Thanks to our amazing users (did we mention amazing?), we found two scary problems. Problem #1: most of you think that Lumhaa is just a photo sharing app. So in this version, we've tried to fix those issues: for starters, we've added more cues and prompts to show you that Lumhaa's memory jars are more like scrapbooks than like photo albums -- we encourage you to add descriptions and emotion tags to your memories! Your future self will thank you for them :)

Problem #2: It's confusing to invite other people to your memory jars. So we've simplified the process for you to invite someone else into your memory jar: all you need to do now is share the jar link with them, and they'll see a giant "join" button at the top.

As always, our exterminator squad is working on squashing those bugs, but if you have any feedback, please feel free to reach out to Shriya (our founder) through the chat button in the app, or write to us at Thanks again for using Lumhaa, and for your support on our mission of spreading joy through memories!

Perfect memory jar diary.. and you can choose to share with loved ones and friends too

Really love this app! I'm not just talking about the cute and straightforward UI design, but also the ingenious concept that helps me commemorate my experiences and emotions, and various features that organize my memories in intuitive ways.

Lumhaa helps me stow away my daily experiences and emotions in little memory jars, be it with a short sentence, a voice memo, a picture, or a video. I can cherish the memories myself, and I can choose to share some of them with my friends and loved ones.

I especially love my memories are automatically organized by time of logging, time of occurrence, and location. With such handy feature I am able to literally find and relive my memories through time and space.

A wonderful way to organize & capture moments!

This app has it all. I love making lists and collections and use a whole ecosystem of apps to manage photos, written notes, linked media etc and with Lumhaa I can do all of those things in one place. Also those memories center on relationships and people or experiences and it’s cool that I can create specific memory jars for those contexts. I like the focus on small groups and privacy — I don’t like sharing private memories / media publicly and am looking forward to making memory jars for my closest friend circles. I’m thinking of using it for my food & fitness log too. It feels so personal & straightforward — love it!

Intuitive and Elegant... memories to last a lifetime

I absolutely love Lumhaa! I stumbled upon this and initially just wanted a place where I could sort through my photos without having the pressure of making them public. Jars are a perfectly intuitive way to do just that. Then I made one with my family. Now instead of having all the photos in our family group message, which makes it almost impossible to retrieve older photos we just update the family jar. Can't imagine life without Lumhaa now! Developers did a great job making such a fun and elegant way to store and sort memories big and small!
