Disclosure: This post about sharing photos with family was generously brought to you by Genlines.com but as always, my opinions are my own.
Having a blended, large family means I have pictures everywhere. My husband has some of our kids, my parents have more and then even my ex-husband has some of my older kids that I don’t have. It is difficult on the best of days to keep everything sorted in my life, including photos but Genlines gave me the answer I was looking for. An app that I can share with all my family and friends that can hold all of our photos in one place for easy sharing? Nothing like this had been possible, until now. I know, mind blown, right?
Some great features of the app include:
A single point of photo/video storage for everyone in the family. You will never miss a great picture because it’s trapped separately on another family member’s phone.
Lose your phone? Don’t lose your pictures. Simply download Genlines on your new phone, login and everything is there.
No more texting everyone pictures. Close friends and loved ones can visit your timeline at their leisure. They can even choose to get an alert when you add new pictures or videos. This is perfect for Grandparents and the whole extended family
It’s private! Unlike other social media, you get all the other “stuff“ you don’t care to see. You can’t just randomly search for people and look at their photos and videos.
You can pass down your children’s pictures, videos, and memories to them digitally.
I was absolutely stoked to check out this app because I am constantly taking pictures of my kids that my mom and dad want to see, or I have taken photos of my sister and brother’s children but don’t want to spend hours sending via e-mail or text or my husband took some amazing photos of the kids while I was out and now I don’t have them. Genlines eliminates each and every one of these issues by simply allowing you to share the app with everyone. You can all have private access to all the photos and never lose another photo again.
At first, it took a little playing around with the app to figure all the features out but with a little time I was easily able to find what I needed, how I was supposed to add photos and quickly and easily upload them to our “story”. They do have helpful tips on their site as well as video tutorials that will help you through it as well.
I am trying to use it every time I take a photo and put as many as I can into it so that all my family and friends have access to them. The app is available for iOS and Android and is really easy to use and has become my go-to app for photo sharing.
Sometimes there are photos that I do not want to post to social media of my kids because they are really for family only or they have asked me not too so this is the perfect way to share with our close circle without embarrassing the kids or putting something out there they don’t want anyone but their dad or grandparents to see.
