So far I’m loving this app

I have grown tiresome of social media. And since my first child was born in 2015, I have been posting every baby memory on my social media. I wanted to delete all social media but I couldn’t because all my memories were there. So I started searching for something that could help me get everything organized and safe! Enter, TinyBeans! It has been very easy to navigate. I usually go to my social media page and search through my timeline. When I see a memory I copy it, check the date, and go input it into my TinyBeans app. I love that you can adjust the date yourself for older memories you forgot to put in. All of my children’s memories are now organized and safely saved. And I love that I can also share with family, especially those who don’t have social media.
I do wish for some adjustments though. I wish that family could add to the calendar as well. My kids grandparents take lots of photos of them and I would love for them to go in and add them in. And if that is possible, maybe have a “share with parents only, or share with everyone” option. That way not everyone can see those memories? Not sure if that makes sense but my kids grandparents fight and I’d rather them not see each other’s photos 😅 but would still like for them to be all added. I also wish there was a newsfeed page option where you can just see new things added vs a calendar look. That way you can be updated on what is new. Other than that, it’s a great app and I highly recommend it

Thanks so much for sharing. We're so glad that you've had a good experience so far!

As a journal owner, you can give permission to add photos/videos to any of your followers from your Family & Friends page (the same place where you initially invited folks). We don't have an option to limit certain posts to certain people quite like you've described, but we do have some interesting hidden upload options for our Premium subscribers. We'd be happy to share more! Shoot us a note at info@tinybeans.com with any questions - we're always happy to help!

So great for photo journaling, finding photos, and sharing with family!

Update in July 2023: a feature I’ve longed for has been added—the ability to search for photos by caption. There is no better way to save photos and share with close family and friends.

Original review: We were introduced to this app by my in laws who used it when my nephews were born (now eight years ago). We loved watching our nephews grow from afar and get a sense of what they were up to day to day. When our daughter arrived three years ago, we knew we wanted to use the same app and had no trouble updating our acct so we could continue to follow our nephews while posting about our daughter (the grandparents also have no trouble following the accts of the cousins). It’s an easy way to share updates with family around the world without using social media and without flooding group text chains. I love seeing the flashbacks and reminders of what we were doing. [NOW OBSOLETE: I wish there was a way to back up the photos with the captions and a way to search photos by caption or description; right now you have to kind of remember the timeframe and scroll to the right place…three years and probably thousands of photos in, this isn’t the most efficient way to ID old favorites.] But I still love the app and it works well for at prime purposes, ie photo journaling and sharing.

So perfect, but a couple small caveats.

It’s all truly excellent. My main recommendations so far would be to make it easier to correct errors entered into height and weight measures (as I learned from a very prompt and clear customer service person named Toni, this can be done by swiping left on a given measurement, but this is not intuitive, so some kind of indication on that page would be helpful). Secondly, I recommend adding a similar measurement system for head circumference, since most doctor’s visits include that anyway, and is of higher importance in the age of Zika. Another, more challenging, issue is this: the statistics should be calibrated to take account of where children are relative to due date, not actual date of birth, so as to take into account preemies (and ‘posties’). There is a publicly available set of alternate statistics for preterm babies that can be used, as well as variant benchmarks used by CDC and WHO (the app Growth+ includes two variants for each organization, plus the preterm variant). By using the actual date of birth rather than the estimated due date, the measurement percentiles used by the Tinybeans app end up being highly skewed toward babies born exactly at their due dates. This would seem a major area of opportunity in an otherwise highly evolved, sophisticated, and delightful app!
