It used to be vacation pictures, pictures of hubby and I on our many adventures, and snaps of my awesome nieces and nephews, but now I’m in deep as my collection has only become more massive since becoming a mom. To make things even worse, I have a hard time deleting these pictures I take off of anything for fear they will all be lost, so I fill up SD cards, full computer hard drives, stacks of CDs filled with pictures, free cloud services, as well as external hard drives.
With well over 200,000 digital photos scattered across these separate storage devices, I am fighting a constant battle to keep all my image files safe, but still accessible. I can’t even count the number of times I have gone to show someone a picture or look for something specific and realized I had no idea where that special image was stored so securely. Let me tell you, it was quite the system.
It wasn’t until Kwilt asked the question Why not have your pictures all in one place? that got me thinking about how easy life would be if I could actually find my pictures when I wanted to see them. It seems like such an easy thing, but, really up until now it hasn’t been.
I know I’m not alone in this because it seems like everyone is always complaining about how they can’t find the pictures from when their kids were little or from their wedding. In fact, 1 in 5 U.S. consumers say they wouldn’t be able to locate specific pictures taken in the last year, according to Ipsos. Scary, right?
I, for one, was relieved when I found the Kwilt App for iPhone, iPad, and iPod that makes photo aggregation truly pain-free as the mobile application automatically accesses photos streams from multiple platforms. Then it organizes those files into one seamless, elegant mosaic design called a Kwilt that makes image storage a truly beautiful experience. Get it? A Kwilt!
Kwilt is the first of its kind mobile app that automatically creates a digital photo stream by gathering images from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google+, Google Drive, Dropbox, DLNA Certified servers, iPhones and iPads dynamically. Once you have authorized these sites and gadgets to connect to the Kwilt app, it gathers your images on its own and lets you assemble them in any number of unlimited arrangements.
So, now instead of searching and getting frustrated that you can’t find the specific picture that you know should be right there, you can now search chronologically, by location, or by theme at the touch of a button. How easy is that? That awesome picture you took of your grandparents this summer has never been easier to find, and it’s now even simpler to share it via social media or share an entire Kwilt. And, if that wasn’t enough, you can also edit your pictures and enhance them from the Kwilt app. 16 state of the art photo editing tools including stickers and drawings to HD editing provides easy adjustment tools to make pictures ready to share within minutes.
But, if you’re hearing all this and worried that your poor, overloaded iPhone can’t handle a picture-heavy app like this, you will be thrilled to know that you aren’t actually storing your pictures in the Kwilt app. Kwilt is merely giving you access to your pictures and helping you organize them without taking up valuable space on your phone.
How awesome is that?
The Kwilt app is available now on iOS (including iOS 8) and will be coming to Android in 2015. For more information visit www.kwiltapp.com
