Neveo Family Photo App: Sharing Your Best Moments
I see my parents on a regular basis & so it is easy to keep them updated on the important things going on in my life. They see the children each week & speak to them on the phone daily. However, there are many families that are not as lucky as us in this respect. Many grandparents live a long distance away & cannot see their families as often as they would like. To make this harder, if they’re anything like my dad, they may not be the most practical when it comes to using technology. Words like Instagram & Facebook are like a foreign language to him!
When Neveo got in touch asking if we would be interested in using an app that sends hard copies of photos & written updates to family members I was intrigued to try it out. We have relatives who we don’t see very often & some who don’t even have the internet so I thought this would be a great way of keeping them up to date with what is going on in our kids’ lives.
Neveo Family Photo App: About
“Share your best photo-moments with your grandparents through a monthly family journal.”
Neveo is a new app that allows users to keep grandparents (or other family members) up to date with a monthly journal of all of your photographs. It is a way of staying in touch with family members through digital pictures & words. It’s a lovely chance for parents to share their children’s photos or big life moments with loved ones.
How Does It Work?
Neveo claims to be able to make a family album in just 2 minutes per month. This is most certainly achievable by following the 5 simple steps stated on their site:
- Download the Neveo app & add your favourite family photos
- Let Neveo upload & gather the information automatically – you don’t need to do anything
- Neveo then uses this information to format & print a photo album in the style of a magazine
- This album then gets sent to your chosen family member in the post
- Every month, your chosen family member gets to open their magazine & see your photos!
Pricing & Extra Features
You can sign up to Neveo for free & upload your photos. When it is time to print an album then you will need to pay a fee. I believe the cost is actually very reasonable starting at £9.99 per month for 50 photos. You can upgrade this to £14.99 per month for 100 photos. This price includes formatting photos, printing & postage. Your photo albums can even be sent worldwide for no extra cost.
All photos are still your property & are stored on protected servers meaning your photos are 100% secure.
A bonus feature of Neveo is that you can invite other family members to add their photos too.
My Family Photo Album: Review
I used the app recently to upload my photos so as to receive my album in time for Christmas. It was super simple to upload the photos – I gave the app permission to access my photos & simply clicked on the ones I wanted to include.
Once I had uploaded my chosen photos, I could then rearrange them into the order I wanted. I then clicked on each photo to edit it & added a caption. This gave me a chance to write a little bit of information about what is happening in the photo. You only get 150 characters so you need to keep it brief!
I had to complete my album by a given deadline (the last day of the month) & Neveo took it from there.
The album arrived 10 days after the deadline in the post. By providing the receiver’s address, the album goes straight to them giving something to look forward to opening each month.
Overall I was pleased with the magazine style album sent & my family absolutely loved looking through it. The whole process from downloading the app to receiving the journal was completely trouble free & super easy. It was refreshing that I didn’t have to worry about the layout when uploading my photos as Neveo deal with this. I think the way they have designed it works well, with the photos & captions placed at alternate sides of the pages. The pages feel of a decent thickness & the photo quality is very good.
I believe Neveo have come up with a brilliant way of keeping families in touch & I know there are members of my family who cannot wait for the next one to arrive!
