This app is not user friendly in the least. If you are one of the unfortunate people who are discovering that Apple has discontinued it's publishing in iphoto, I'm sorry to say this altenative is a terrible substitute. Converting a prepared photo book from iphoto will not be a smooth process. I lost photos in the process and could not import them again without diminished resolution quality. Twice while attempting to edit my photo book once it was converted (still with missing photos) the app suddenly added additional pages. A 56 pg book grew suddenly to 109 pages the first go round, and 75 pages the second time. The drag and drop feature is awkward and not as seamless as the apple version. And there are symbols employed on the photos without any explanation. Check marks or exclamation points- Are they telling me that the images are successfuly imported? Are they telling me that the image quality is good or insufficient? I have no idea. I'm also discovering that if you need to buy in bulk you will have to pay individual shipping for each one- regardless of shipping to the same location. Unfortunately, there is no alternative I can find that can easily convert previous work done in iphoto into a presentable photo book. Now I have no Christmas presents to send to my extended family and have wasted at least 30 hours on a nonviable project. It is not worth the trouble. They should not have done this. Do not waste your time or money in this app.


Photo Calendars

I also MISS Apple’s Photo Calendar process which I had refined over the years of making Family Calendars. I attempted to make a calendar using Mimeo tho stopped after realizing the App is in it’s infancy at best compared to Apple’s Photo programs. While there may be more options of adding multiple pictures to the individual calendar pages there is no way to add pictures and captions to the dates. It is possible to create an event for a BD for example and ad a picture to the actual date. However the number of the date stays thus putting a giant block on the image. Also the font is superimposed on to the picture with no ability to change the font or it’s color so it is for example black on a black subject. It is possible to add an event to the date prior to the date to write a caption but again no font choices and the problem with the date covering the subject. I had honed the process of finding funny national dates to add pictures (ie “World Beard Day” or "National Hugging Day”) and SO DISAPPOINTED this program and Apple do not support this.

Gessilious ,

Irritating Auto Update Feature

I was disappointed Apple didn't continue to offer photo products like they did in years past. I chose this app because it seemed similar to what Apple had.

I just made a calendar. The process was very frustrating. The autoupdate feature continued cycle every 1-2 minutes. This wouldn't be so bad except it would refresh the screen to the coverpage of the calendar and I had to advance back to where I was working and quickly make changes because the dreaded auto update was coming soon. I would lose progress and have to repeat my work over and over and over. This was beyond irritating and unnecessary. The finished project on the app looks ok so I'm hopeful my actual calendar will arrive as designed.
