If you're anything like me... your answer is probably, "One billion."
Recently I had the pleasure of working with some great people behind the free app: "Nowvel."
They were all, "Mama....do you have one billion photos on your phone? Would you like us to get them off of there and put them into an adorable little book that you will want to strap to your forehead and show the world?"
And I was all: "I do! I do! I would! I would love to strap a book to my head!"
Okay, maybe that's not exactly how it went... but you get the idea.
Nowvel allows you to take pictures right off your phone, and create an automatic photo book on 20 pages of stiff, lay flat, eco-friendly paper stock.
The books are small-ish, at 8 inches; so they are just big enough to show off your photos, but still small enough to stash in your purse to show your girlfriends at the bar.
You know you hate looking at pictures on other people's phones. I do too, obviously.
Now, let me be real for a second here, and if you've been reading for a long time, you already know this: I hate technology.
Technology is Husband's department... he pays for the phone, and I keep it 10% charged... that's our deal in life.
So when I heard from a company about trying out their new app I was like... "Husband. I need help."
After the kids had gone to bed we snuggled up on the couch, and he showed me how to open my App Store... (you think I'm kidding).
We searched, "Nowvel," and downloaded the app and started to check it out together.
Within thirty seconds I realized that even someone as old school as me could figure this thing out, and I pushed Husband out of the way so I could pick and choose my photos on my own.
The app is super clean and organized looking, fun and easy on the eyes... definitely user friendly (thank goodness).
Nowvel organizes your photos into potential albums based on their dates, or let's you create your own.
For example, say you took 87 photos between April 14 and April 16... Nowvel knows that, puts all those photos together, and names the album, "The Weekend," for you... aren't they helpful??
Of course, you don't have to order that book, or ever even open it... it's just there as one of their billion possible options to get those photos off your phone... and into a book.
Tangible memories people! That's what it's all about!
They also organize your photos into things like, "Our Picks," "Just Faces," "Tagged Photos" and "All Photos".... I love that they give you possible albums to print, things that they think you might like.
I kept my book super clean looking with one photo per page because I like a simpler, more classic look... but if you wanted to, you could add up to 5 photos per page, for the same price!!
A book is 20 pages long... so you can actually pack 100 photos in this itty bitty book!!
I absolutely love the way it turned out.
I actually love it so much that I took a picture of almost every single page for you guys, because I couldn't choose just one or two! I love them all!
So nice, right?
The pages are harder than paperback... kind of like a kid's cardboard book... which you know I love because that means my maniac kids cant rip them to shreds.
The cover is also hard; not like, an encyclopedia... but harder than a paperback.
Those in the know call it a, "soft cover"... but I'd call it durable, meaning your kids wont be able to bend it.... and you know my shit is always getting broken, so you can trust me on that one.
Once I had all of my photos picked out, which took me forever because I hate commitment... I moved on to designing my cover.
They offer a slew of different designs... enough to suck you in for a good while.
You can also add your own font to the front and back covers...
The best part is, besides the great quality of my little book... it is super affordable... only $20... seriously, that's less than a buck a page...
Because shipping is INCLUDED!!! I KNOW.
AND... because Nowvel is awesome, they are offering coupon code: COTP just for Our Tiny Place readers... it'll save you five bananas!
And by bananas, I mean dollars... because who gives a crap about saving actual bananas, right?
