Chatbooks: GENIUS photo app with a hilarious video you HAVE to see!

Let’s be honest. Does anyone out there EVER sort out their photos?

Because, seriously, who has the time?

There’s random Facebook and Instagram posts, an overflowing phone, a cloud thingummy (you know – that magical place that pictures go to, never to be seen again), and a laptop desktop that was last cleared in 2014. So, when the video for the Chatbooks app cropped up recently, it certainly sparked our interest. Not only because the video is INSANELY funny, but because the app seems to something that busy parents might actually like.

The video shows a mum calmly going through her typical day – pulling forks out of the waste disposal, dodging crossbow arrows, and bandaging her kid after he jumps off the roof. And her ability to stride through the day-to-day chaos of parenting is side-splittingly funny. In a world that spookily resembles many parent’s lives (though hers comes with an impressive amount of composure), the video is a must see! You check out the full video below.

The Chatbooks app was created by a mum in the US who found she didn’t have enough time to sort and print her photos. The clever app works directly from your phone, automatically creating and shipping a high quality photo book to you every time you add 64 photos to Instagram, Facebook, or to your phone favourites. The app even includes the dates and captions in the book. It takes just 30 seconds to set up, and you only need to set up once. After that, the app will simply work away in the background. For those who do like to edit their photos, Chatbooks will notify you before the order goes ahead, so you have time to change the book, if you want to.

If you prefer to create your own, you can also just create a single Custom Chatbook, using whatever photos you like – from 30 to 366 pages. And you can chose from either having a softcover or a hardcover option.

Each year we take a combined 3 trillion photos across the globe. Each one filled with priceless moments, adventures and the unique story of your family. For busy parents who have no time to organise and print these photos, providing a way of storing those treasured memories in a format where everyone can look back at and share is a genius solution to the digital chaos that often ensues after having children.

To find out more, head to the Chatbooks website, or you can find the app in the Apple store or on Google Play. And yes, Chatbooks DO ship to Australia!
