When I turned 30, I got the birthday present of a lifetime! I had my second little girl, Vivian, who is now 3 (now you know how old I am.. ha!). I absolutely love that I share my birthday with her, and right now she thinks it’s pretty cool too (though I doubt she always will–but a girl can hope, right?). Anyway, when she turned 2, we had a big joint party right before I had my son (he was born a month later), comeplete with Elmo cupcakes, sub sandwiches and our friends and family!
The reason I bring this up now, and not when it actually was our birthdays in December, is because I downloaded this new app on my phone AND computer, called Lyve, and it helped me to remember that I even had this event’s pictures stored on my phone! It is a really cool app in that it not only sorts my photos on all the devices I have connected by date, but it allows me to access all the photos from my phone on my computer or tablet and visa vera, so long as I have the app connected on those devices.
Before, when I was wanting a photo off of my phone and onto my computer, I had to email the photo to myself and then download it from there. Same with if I wanted a phone from my computer. This app is SO much easier because it automatically syncs all the photos from the Lyve app, regardless of what device I am on! Once I am on my computer, I can choose the photo(s) that I want and export them from the app to my computer. So, so easy! I like that it doesn’t download the photos automatically, but rather is just a server that holds it all for me online. That way, I can pick and choose what photos I want to download before I download them, thus saving space on my devices. Pretty nifty!
Here’s a screen shot of my phone that shows you how it sorts the photos by date. I love that because I can’t always remember when things happened. This makes it easy so you can!
