Beautiful books that are easy to make
We started using Recently a few years ago when I realized that I wanted our photos to live outside of my phone, but with busy twins and an active family, didn’t have time to print them out and scrapbook them.
Enter Recently. It’s so easy! I get to choose the photos, decide how many to include (it’s always 150 these days 😂) and pick color, covers, and now a little intro blurb. I can even send them to other members of the family easily. Hit “publish” and boom: high-quality photos on beautiful paper, printed, bound, and shipped.
Now that our twins are in elementary school, they love going back and looking at the magazines from when they were babies. We’re building a whole library of photo books, and I can only imagine how valuable it will be in twenty years to have these beautiful memories to page through.
Get Recently is the best Photo Magazine ever!
I’ve been making these magazines/books for over two years. It’s an ingenious, fast, clear way to chronicle events with friends and family from each busy month. Whatever happens in a particular month across the world that interests me, I include by editing screen shots from social media. Friends are always surprised and pleased to find their images in this clever chronicle. I love that I can choose the amount of photos yet the book stays the same size with the photo sizes varying. If you have a question, the response time from the Get Recently group is incredibly fast. I also use to create as a gift for friends from weddings or other special occasions. Five Stars plus for my favorite app ever!!!
Worst customer service, EVER!
This company speaks with condescending tones and acts as though all billing issues are because of the customer. The books take hours to create because errors occur at least 20 times during the photo upload process. Because of this, I tried to cancel. They stated my subscription was cancelled yet continued to charge my credit card monthly. I then tried to get a refund and was denied. I changed my credit card number and had to open a complaint through capital one against them. Fast forward 8 months and they again charged my card through iTunes and then refused to honor or refund the amounts they have charged for all previous months. This company is a horrible to deal with yet I can't seem to get rid of them without cancelling iTunes all together. We all know, that is not possible! Now, all I can do is fight to get books published so I at least get my money back through a product. I just attempted to do so and was CHARGED an additional $8.99. I'm at a loss as to how to get refunds at this point.
Developer Response ,
Glad we chatted online. When you didn't get around to publish magazines while subscribed - we quickly responded that you still had credits for those months, and how to use them! Recently knows users might miss a month or two and we don't delete those credits.
We realized together from your email that, at first, you attempted a method to make the magazines that meant for ordering extra copies (hence the charge) so we refunded it that day, and instructed you on how to publish those credits for free.
Users can cancel at anytime, and nothing will be billed. It's not through iTunes. There's a cancel account right in the app, under settings.
