When my daughter was born, I took thousands of pictures the first year. Back then, photo apps and social networking weren’t hugely popular. Although I printed many of them and placed them in photo albums, the majority of my digital files languished on my hard drive.
As sites such as Flickr and Facebook became more widely used, I started uploading my photos to share with distant relatives. After a while, I began to lose track of which photos I had uploaded where. Things have gotten more confusing with the addition of Instagram and other mobile photo apps.
As my wife will tell you, I’m not the most organized guy in the world. She always gets frustrated when she asks me to find a particular photo and I have to search on my computer, the web, and my phone to find it.
Thankfully I’ve discovered a new photo app called Woven. The one of a kind app aggregates and organizes your’ photos from multiple online services onto your preferred mobile device. After linking your accounts, you will not need an Internet connection to view your photos on Woven. You can also upload photos that are stored locally on your device.
It took me only a few minutes to download the app and get everything set-up on my Kindle Fire. After I created an account, the app prompted me to login in to various photo sites. I chose Flickr, Facebook, and Instagram. Within minutes, all of my photos were brilliantly displayed on Woven’s simple yet elegant interface.
My wife was delighted when I flipped through photos that she hadn’t seen in years from our Flickr account. It felt great to rediscover photos of the children when they were younger. We brought the kids over so they could reminisce with us. We had a great time reliving old memories – holidays, vacations, birthday parties, candid moments, etc. Viewing these photos together allowed us to have some great family bonding time.
If you’re busy parent who loves to take photos, but hates to organize them, Woven is the perfect solution for you. The app is free and is available for all popular smart phones, tablets, and e-readers (iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook, Android)
