It’s easy to share family photos, but what’s tricky for parents and caregivers is deciding how much to reveal online. Journaling app Tinybeans helps by letting you broadcast your tot’s shining face—but only to your inner circle.
Like an open social network, Tinybeans is designed for posting photos, videos, and quotes. But it goes a step further bymaking it easier to specify who can see them.
You can set up an individual profile for each child to keep their digital scrapbooks organized and distinct. Then family members and friends you invite will receive email updates whenever you post something. (Good news for less tech-savvy relatives: They don’t need to use the app to view your posts.)
Tinybeans also encourages you to incorporate written reflections in your albums with helpful prompts like “What did your tinybean do today to make you laugh?” and “What do you wish for your tinybean today and in the future?”
Easily bring the digital archive you’re creating into the real world by ordering photo books, cards, and more. A premium version of the app eliminates ads and offers more storage space for your precious photos and videos.
