I love technology! Are you looking for some new apps to try? Here are 2 of my favorites. (And no, I’m not getting paid for this – but that would be nice.)
Both of these apps are FREE and are available in iTunes and the Google Play store. In case you’re wondering, I’m a HUGE fan of Apple. :)
Heirloom – Use your smartphone camera to quickly scan in photos. For each photo you can add information (description, date, location, tags) and then share (save to your camera roll, share with individuals, to a group, or to social media). The photos are not stored on your phone (unless you save them to the camera roll). Instead, they are stored in the cloud at www.heirloom.net.
If you’re like me, you have hundreds of photos laying around in photo albums. I wanted to digitize my photos, but I didn’t want to spend days/weeks scanning them in on my computer. With Heirloom, I’m able to scan in complete photo albums in about 15-20 minutes. You simply take a picture of the photograph and Heirloom automatically finds the edges. It’s so easy!
Ink Cards – Looking for a convenient way to send personalized cards? This app allows you to send 5” x 7” cards (starting at $1.99, postage included) right from your phone. Pick a template (over 500 to choose from), upload a photo, type a personalized message, and then enter in your recipient’s address. You also select when you want the card delivered.
I have used Ink Cards several times, and everyone has always been very impressed with the cards.
Fun idea: Use the Heirloom app to scan in old photos and then upload those photos to the Ink Cards app. There’s nothing like surprising your friends and family with mail containing throwback pictures and a personalized message.
