    • When families live 1000s of miles away from each other, it can be hard to call and connect daily. Here the parents can show in the calendar what activities the kids are up to every day. That way, the grandparents can stay up to date.

    • My family is spread all over the place, both within the US and abroad, and we use FamilyAlbum to share pictures and videos of my kids (we prefer to keep a lot of stuff off of Facebook and Instagram). My family comments on what gets uploaded, so we always feel connected regardless of where we currently are. The app creates these really cool movie montages every month that shows off some of the best moments from what I've uploaded. Plus unlimited storage and no ads. Definitely, recommend!

    • It's hard to be grandparent living far away from your grandchildren, or a parent that travels a lot and not home much. Keep track of every single 1 of your kid or grand-kid's pieces of artwork and keep them forever.
