As parents, we want to capture all the silly and wonderful moments of our children’s lives. Now you can do it easily with Snapbrite.
Snapbrite is an app that allows you to upload pictures, videos, and audio, and organize them into a neat and easy timeline, highlighting all the special moments of your child’s life.
Once created, you can share your timeline with family and friends through social media or email. One great feature is the ability to sync online to access your timeline on other devices or via the Snapbrite website. This is great if you have different pictures on separate devices.
You are limited to 1gb of online storage but can unlock more as you invite friends to join. This is okay, and I definitely will recommend this app to everyone with kids, but an option to straight up purchase extra storage would be better.
Another feature includes a slideshow presentation of your timeline. It can be customized to show all the timeline photos, or certain sections only, and have a song playing in the background if you like. I found it a nice option, but did have some difficulty playing it with music, but this is not a deal breaker for me.
The overall design of the app is very easy to use. The main screen gives you three tabs to navigate between your individual timelines, a combined timeline, and all photos you upload, with the menu button always on the top right.
When viewing a specific child’s timeline your events or pictures will be in the order that you organize them. The other two tabs just show the pictures and events in the order that you uploaded them.
When in the main menu, the menu options will be different than when in a specific timeline.
Creating an account is not necessary to use Snapbrite. However, if you want to have access to the online features, such as cloud sync and inviting friends, an account is required.
To create an account, you will need to use your email address. You can use your Google plus account, or your Facebook account to make signing up a little faster. Signing in with Facebook or Google plus will allow you to access any pictures associated with either account.
The first time you open the app, you will be asked to create a timeline. Once created, the Photo Wizard will ask to start uploading pictures. This is the best option if you have a lot of pictures to upload, as it will automatically organize them for you. The Photo Wizard can be accessed from the menu in any timeline.
