Everalbum

The innovative folks at Everalbum approached us with the news that their app for iOS has been released and I am loving it!  It’s the most intuitive and advanced way to edit, organize, and share my photos that I’ve used yet, and once I tried it out I knew that it was something I wanted to share with you here.

Everalbum

 

Everalbum is free in the iTunes app store (Android coming soon) and allows me to store 2,500 photos from my camera roll up to “the cloud” at Everalbum, for free.  When I’m ready, I can upgrade to the premium membership so that I can store 50,000 photos in the cloud for just $7.99 per month.  For the cost of one glass of wine a month at that hipster pizza joint I like so much, I can safely delete the pics from my camera roll and access them from my laptop, iPad and iPhone if I want to because they’re all on Everalbum.  This feature is a biggie for me–right after my daughter’s Make-A-Wish experience, I had to perform a “master reset” because my phone locked up.  The tech on the other end of the line didn’t tell me that doing this would delete all of my photos, and I lost some precious photos when that happened.  I so wish they’d been backed up somewhere, but I literally did not have the opportunity!  This was about an hour afterward and I didn’t know that I was about to lose them all.  Ugh.  That still makes me feel sick.

Friends don’t let friends run out of photo storage space.  Everalbum is your friend.

The default privacy settings for every photo and album is strict–I am the only person who can view my photos unless I specifically choose to share it/them with someone, which is a relief for me.  When I want to share a photo with my sister, I click “share” and select her name from my contacts list and poof–she has it.  My sister is often stuck in a chair somewhere nursing one of her twins, so now she could flip through her Everalbum albums and choose which dozen photos she wants just me and our mom to see and which ones she wants to post directly to Facebook or Twitter via the Everalbum app on the iPhone she always has with her.  And we can edit a photo within Everalbum using all the same editing tools found in any photo software: adding filters, frames, crop, add stickers, adjust focus, sharpness and correct red`eye before I share it.


enchiladas
Believe me, these seafood enchiladas needed no enhancements–but if I wanted to I could do it very easily.
(I’d probably make the scallops look bigger.)

 

My albums are organized by date, and the user interface is beautiful.  My photos are backed up from my camera roll directly to my Everalbum account, so I don’t have to remember to do it myself later.  And if you’re like me and always take about five shots of the same image so that you can go back later to save the clearest/best photo and delete the rest, removing a photo from an album is quick and easy.

You will want to check out this app before the kids are all out of school and summer getaways begin, so that you can take the photos and Everalbum does all the work!

And I was free to enjoy a baseball game with the twins while Everalbum backed up all my photos for me.

 I was compensated by Everalbum to review their product here, and it is genuinely a great app.  It’s a powerful tool for backing up and organizing your pics, it’s very fast, it’s secure, it’s free and it’s pretty–it’s like my antithesis.
