Your Favorite Apps for Memory Keeping

by | Digital Photography Tips | 13 comments

Simple Tip Saturdays are for sharing easy ideas to grab and run.

It’s been quite a long while since we talked about apps for photography and other aspects of memory keeping. And so much has changed!

We have tablets (on top of phones) and multiple operating systems and just so many options.

I thought it would be fun to have a good discussion in the comments today. I’d love if you would leave a comment sharing your favorite apps. Please include what kind of device you use, too!

My Favorite App | PicTapGo – I seem to have a ton of photography apps on my phone, but the only one I actually use is PicTapGo. I love the ease of editing images creatively with this app and often use it to simply brighten up dark phone pics.

Ok, now it’s your turn. Ready, set, go!

Note: For the purposes of this post, let’s call Instagram a social network and exclude it.

We believe simple is not how your page looks, but how your scrapbooking hobby works. We have a free workshop called SPARKED and it is the best way to learn more about Simple Scrapper and start creating consistently.

    I’ve got an iPhone & an iPad
    Partial to Collect & I LOVE Momento & Evernote

    I have an iPad but no phone so I don’t have a lot of photo apps. Still, I use a surprising number of apps for memory keeping.

    Evernote (of course)
    PhotoSync – works like EyeFi for my iPad
    Team Viewer (replaces LogMeIn) – I use this for scrapping or tagging photos away from home and for access to my Mom’s photos.
    InstaWeather – great for Project Life
    Capturing Magic – great for tracking photo ops at Disney
    Pop Booth

    I just picked up an app called Burst that I’m anxious to try.

    In January , 2014, I started using both Collect and Day One. I like both and have on my iPad and iPhone. Day One can also be used on the iMac and I am planning to add it.
    I don’t do much photo editing but I think I’ll try PicTapGo…seems to be well received.

    I also love pictapgo. I occasionally use A Beautiful Mess and Rhonna Designs to add text. I’ve been using heyday for journaling since December. I like that it reminds places I’ve been and pictures I’ve taken at each place and I can easily add in journaling.

    Clear Cam is fantastic for getting great photos in lower light. At it’s basic setting it takes 4 shots and chooses the sharpest one. At the advanced setting, it takes 6 shots, combines them and applies noise reduction and sharpening. Brilliant!

    For editing I light Snapseed. You can do so much with it and I love the frames you can add.

      Oh I will have to check out Clear Cam for sure! Even though the camera is pretty good in my phone I’m always disappointed in the low light performance.

    I like Collect for my CY365 project. I also like PicFrame and Pic Stitch but honestly don’t know how to get them to print correctly at Walgreens. The times I have created a collage the picture prints out with parts trimmed off.

    • Jennifer Wilson

      I suggest minimizing the borders to zero for best results in printing. If I want to get a perfect collage print with borders I will do the internal borders on the computer and then have whatever service add the outer border. It looks like the Walgreens app does collage prints, you might try building them from there.

    I’ve been using Rhonna Designs and heyday, but now I have a lot more to try after reading this post and all the comments. Cheers!

  8. Kendra

    I love A beautiful mess. The app lets me add words to my photo as well as make collages to print.

  9. Gina Karas

    I love the Collect app for iPhone. It sends me a text reminder every day to be sure that I log in my photo. There’s space for journaling notes & details about the photo. It keeps me on track for Project Life!

  10. Beth

    By far Big Lens is currently my favorite app and I always use Fuzel when I need to create a collage for editing photos camera+ is the app that I have always used but I am thinking I will try pictapgo soon.

    • Jennifer Wilson

      Oh cool, I haven’t heard of those. Thanks for sharing Beth!
