Your moments that matter with your people that matter deserve to be remembered. Reel You is a lifestyle: plan your moments ahead of time, experience them fully and presently, and capture all the details later. We're on a mission to help you find the joy in your journey so that you can reminisce over the past, dream about the future, and see your life in new ways. Start by capturing your first moment now... sometimes even the small moments turn out to be the things that mean the most!


What to expect in the app:

- All of your moments are organized chronologically in your Reel; swap the Reel view to see your moments in different ways.
- Your Reel is dynamic! Use filters to see your moments by person, location or activity. Watch the storylines of your life unfold as you add more moments.
- Your Reel is for your eyes only, so you can always be your authentic self.

- Insights about your moments to discover more about yourself.
- Words of wisdom to keep you inspired throughout the day.
- We give you complete control over your experience: you determine which moments are added to (or hidden from) your Reel and you can see exactly which moments your friends are sharing, updating or sending messages on.
- Flexible reminder scheduling to fit your lifestyle.

- We send you 10 recommendations per day to inspire your next moment.
- Prompts help jumpstart the moment creation process.

- Moments are flexible enough to capture any type of experience. Moments can be in the past or in the future, shared or on your own, and contain any amount of detail you want. Include a story to capture your thoughts and feelings. Include multiple locations to see everywhere this moment took place.
- What life experiences are coming up in your future? Create moments with a future date to plan your next adventure.
- Selectively share on a moment-to-moment basis... or don't share at all! Each person invited to a moment can add their photos, stories and more from the experience. Creating moments with friends and family is a uniquely collaborative experience that will help you collect everyone's perspective and photos of your time together.
- In the Messages section you can react, reminisce and see the full history of moment updates.

Living more intentionally

This app is making a much bigger difference in my world than I imagined it would when I first downloaded it. It’s giving me the chance to document my life in a more convenient, yet more personal way and even helping me find more joy in the little moments! I don’t typically download too many new apps, but this one’s turning out to be worth it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you Jirwin18, that means a lot to us. We hope to continue helping you find those little moments of joy.

Diary of my art and hobby projects

I’ve long sought a good way to record details of my hobby projects. Reel You allows me to combine photos and recollections of the inspiration for the project and the step by step process of creating it. If I gift a piece of my work, now or in the future, I an share it with the recipient.

We're so pleased to hear that Reel You is helping you record and share your hobby projects. Thanks for the great review Big Al, and thanks for being the Reel You!

Cool new concept!

This App is awesome. The whole idea of “personal media” is exactly what we need. Now, we can capture all moments in our life with photos, videos, and stories, but we can control exactly who can see that moment, if I want anyone to see it at all. Very cool.

Developer Response ,

Yes! Thank you shnajm for the kind words. Happy to hear that Reel You is helping you share your life in the way you want.
