Smartphones today are incredible aren’t they? We rely on them for so many things. One of the reasons that I purchased my iPhone was so that I had a camera with me all the time. I am a bit of a nut when it comes to taking pictures of my kiddos and wanted a nice small camera and the iPhone delivered! Now ask me what I do with all of those photos. Nothing. They are on my Flickr account, some are on my Instagram, and that is it! Do I sound like you? Groovebook has a solution and it is pretty cool!
You can download the Groovebook app for free but you have to subscribe to their service which sends you up to 100 photos from your phone every month. For just $2.99 per month you get a book with quality photo-paper and perforated edges so that you can use the photos however you please. I received my book inside the 7 days they tell you in will take and all shipping and processing fees are included in that one low monthly subscription price of $2.99!
The Groovebook app is extremely easy to use. Once installed you can select what pictures you want to print or just have the app choose all of your most current pictures. Our whole family has enjoyed having the book around and talking about the pictures and what we were doing when they were taken. I also added some pictures that I had on Instagram and they turned out just fine. The extra border on each print didn’t bother me one bit.
Each photo has the date it was taken on the page. For my photos I went all the way back to when I first got my phone. It is a great benefit if you are getting forgetful like me but I wish it was actually on the picture itself. I don’t intend to take my book apart but if I did I would have to write the date on the photo itself if I wanted to know the date.
The perforated pages are very hand for sharing with friends and family. No cutting required! If you enjoy taking pictures with your phone Groovebook makes it SO easy to get those pictures developed and to your house to enjoy rather than stuck on your phone forever. Thanks to Groovebook they are offering EACH one of you a chance to try their service for free. Yes I said FREE! All you have to do is download the Groovebook app, select the photos that you want to include in your book (or let the app select your most current photos), and enter your information using the special code 80MPHGROOVE. You will not be charged a thing! They will ask for a credit card but if you do decide that the Groovebook app is not for you just email their customer service and they will promptly cancel your subscription. Easy right? Imagine getting a special package each month to remind you of all the fun memories that you had. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter.
