If you're like me, you've already collected a few hundred photos on your iPhone that you're going to "do something" with someday. Let's face it, when you finally manage to get a few minutes of quality time at your computer, scrapbooking your iPhone photos is probably pretty far down on your list. With Coolibah you can scrapbook anywhere, anytime! Install it today and you can start filling those "lost" minutes spent waiting for your kids at the doctor's office, the dentist's office, at gymnastics, baseball, or soccer with something that's fun and productive.
Coolibah works best with high-resolution iPhone photos. You do have the ability to use photos imported through iTunes. But please be aware that iTunes resizes photos during the import process, making them very small. They will show up small on a Coolibah page because of this.
You can bypass iTunes to get high resolution photos on your device.
* Email the photo to yourself > open it on your device > save to your device
* Upload to a photo hosting website (flickr, photobucket.. etc.) > access your account on your device > save photo to your device

What's New in Version 1.7
Coolibah is now FREE without any limitations at all! There is no need to purchase an upgrade. We've removed the watermark and the limitations on the number of albums and pages you can create. If you have the free version, update now to remove all the limitations!
We also added in a nifty new "Share" feature. It allows you to share your awesome creations directly to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr without ever leaving the app. You can also send them by email to your friends and family. Go ahead and show off what you create! Everyone will ooooh and ahhhh! We hope you love these exciting new updates. We had so much fun working on them for you!
Thank you so much for all your support! We have a lot of exciting things planned for our next update.
love it, but its low res
This is a great app, the low ratings are coming from people who don't have the sense to click on the help button, rather throw their hands up and claim it must not work, and see that they have a great website with lots of help and Q&A.
Also there are plenty of free elements, but they do not come preloaded and there is a good reason for this. Who would want a bunch of space taken up with things you'd never use, not me. When you go to their store, at first it appears that everything costs $, but if you looked at the Q&A you'd see that there are lots of free packages, you just have to scroll through (the cover flow style - cool!) library because the free ones are interspersed with the paid ones. This is reasonable.
I love the selection and I would even be happy to purchase some of them, except for the fact that this app does not save my high resolution pics in high res. if it did I would stop looking and start spending. I'd rather wait and find something in high res, than go through all the work and later wish I waited.
The movement is a bit choppy on resizing and fine tuning placement can be a little bit of a challenge. For this reason, I would ordinarily give this 4⭐, but I believe that the dev has been unfairly punished by people who are either too stupid or too impatient to use this app; for this reason, I am posting a 5⭐review.
Love this app, but.....
This is a great app with SOOO many choices that are priced reasonably. It is easy to use, and the pages look good. I do however have a few suggestions... 1. A lot of scrapbookers like a square page format, even for digitally created pages. I for one, print mine and put them into 12x12 or 8x8 albums. I would really like for this app to have a choice of page formats between square and rectangular. 2. I have purchased quite a few of the kits offered, and a better way of accessing them would be preferable. It is SUCH a pain to have to thumb through each and every embellishment to get to the one I want. That wastes valuable scrapping time! I would like to see a better way to organize the kits, like perhaps by theme, color or being able to access each kit rather than lumping all the embellishments together, all the frames together, all the backgrounds together etc. i would use this app SO much more with these suggestions put into the app!
I love to play with this app. I get pictures that my friends and family post on Facebook, then I save the image on my iPad. I use coolibah to decorate the pictures and email them to the people in the pic! It's so fun! Great selection of paper, decorations, fonts, etc. I don't mind the 99 cents to purchase a kit. The choices are great, and it comes with alot. The way I play with coolibah, the 99 cents is like buying a game! But more fun cuz you can use the kit over and over...and over again!
It's fun and easy to use. Easy to make new pages or books. Easy to email. I totally recommend this fun app!
I want to add an update to my review! I still love this app! It is my absolute favorite! It's the best digital scrapbook app for ipad. I love the papers and embellishment kits. But something has obviously happened to the web designers! I hope they come back! I really hope this app doesn't disappear! It is the best!! Please come back!
