Amazing quality and user experience!

I was looking for a quality app to print a few special albums as gifts. I’ve seen the quality of other providers (Shutterfly, Google), and wanted something better. I researched extensively and decided to give Motif a try. I received my albums within less than a week and - wow!!! The quality is incredible. Beautiful printing, great paper and colors. I also loved the attention to detail - each album was carefully packaged in a giftable box and a clear sleeve. I was simply blown away and immediately shared with my friends. I never write reviews but I’m hoping this company continues to grow and offer such an amazing product. PS - I found the app to be mostly user friendly with great templates. I do have a few comments: (1) Would be great to include a spellchecker :) (2) Also, would like the default for reviewing photos to be “unplaced photos” rather than manually changing each time. Not a big deal at all, and I’ll most definitely be printing many more albums!! Thank you!

Wonderful App

I have made many photo books over the years and had used Apple Books until they stopped supporting that platform. Most of the Apps I looked at to use as a replacement limited the number of pages to under 50 and I didn’t like the way they made most of the decisions about placement of photos for you. I also am pretty fussy about how the photos look in the book. I don’t want to send in a clear crisp photo and then have a fuzzy one in the book! I tried making a book using this App on my computer and was very pleased with the results so when the App came out for my phone and iPad, I jumped! At first it took a bit to discover how to do all the things I wanted to with the App, like swapping photos that were placed automatically with ones I preferred in certain spots but it all came together and I am pleased with the results. I could even place photos and write commentary as the vacations unfold if I wanted to because this App is so portable! I really love it. Thanks for the App and I can’t wait to use it for making a calendar!

Surprisingly bad interface on mobile app

I got this app because I wanted something that worked seemlessly with my iPhone photo library. That it does. But the rest of the interface was clunky and very frustrating. The worst of the offenses was when I tried to create my own book layout, there was absolutely no option to delete unused pages. I searched for answers online on how to delete pages, and it turns out my there are “x”s that are supposed to appear in the upper corner of the page, which you click on to delete the page. There were absolutely no “x”s on my app. So after troubleshooting my self-made photo album for 2 hours, I finally gave in, started over, and had the app auto-create the album and then I reordered everything the best I could. It was an acceptable work around I *guess*, but I don’t have exactly the book I want. Oh well.
