In an ideal world, we'd all memorialize our family vacays, wedding weekends, and bachelorette bashes into neatly bound books that will forever store our treasure trove of nostalgia, but the reality is, most of these moments live and die on our Camera Roll. Printing photos and making albums online can be tedious and time-consuming. That's why we're so psyched about husband-wife duo Julie and Brian Whiteman's recently launched app GrooveBook. The easy-to-use photo subscription service lets you upload your iPhone photos and transform them into a 4.5" x 6.5" book in just a few clicks, for the reasonable price of three bucks.
If you're a Shark Tank fan, you might recognize the product from the show (the Whitemans attracted the investment of Kevin O'Leary), but the original venture was born out of necessity. While traveling, Julie misplaced her phone, and with it more than 2,000 photos of her husband and three children.
"GrooveBook is very personal to us," she tells InStyle. "I had so much guilt about not having the time to make albums of my family." Now, users can pay a small sum per month to ensure that they'll have physical copies of all their digital records, with little to no time commitment. And what's groovier than that?
