What's New in Version 3.2
Pretty good, but w changes would be better
I just bought this app, so I don't know how any of the printed products would turn out yet, but my first impressions are:
Relatively easy to use and import art from my camera roll, easy to label by child. I like seeing all of her art in a gallery view together.
Changes I'd make:
1. I partially bought the app because I thought the caption box allowed me to add more than a title. My daughter has a very active imagination, and I love the stories behind her art and don't want to forget them. Unfortunately, there's no field I can find that allows me to write comments about the work, and the title box only allows for a very limited number of characters. I'm not sure I would have paid the $5 for the app if I'd known that.
2. I wish that when importing photos of art I've already taken into the app that it would import them with the date already attached. Right now your only options are to import the photos individually and edit the date for each one as you go, or import a bunch at once and go back and change the dates (which then for each one I have to go back and check my camera roll). Not an issue if you only photograph the art through this app, but a real pain if you have a lot of stuff back logged.
It's a cool idea, and I hope they'll implement those changes at some point so I can give it more stars!
Needs another update
I just received our first Artkive book. Thought the cost is outrageous but the ease of use of the app makes it worth it to me. However, to receive a book with a paper sleeve cover that is going to be tossed around by my children admiring their works of art was so disappointing. I want this book to last a lifetime. I certainly will not be purchasing this same book again to get a new paper cover. I will use Shutterfly as I always have for other scrapbooks in the past if you can not figure out how to print on a hard cover. In addition I think it's sad that there are no more options for layouts or multiple photos on pages. I get it that you are trying to make a profit and want to maximize the number of pages, but I would have loved to include a few pics of my children actually working on these pieces of artwork (their teachers upload photos daily).
Love this app!!
With 5 year old twins, the amount of artwork I'm dealing with could be a full-time job! So excited you can now upload multiple images to the app at once, and edit images in the app. The books I ordered last year really surpassed my expectations and I look forward to trying some of the new products available. Thanks for the great service!
