  1. Lisa Angenbroich-avatar

    Lisa Angenbroich


    App is great to put all the photos in 1 spot to keep them safe AND to share with all the family & friends instead of having to send them individually or post them all on social media. I took 1 star off the rating because the app is a little slow, takes some time to completely understand how to use it, and you cant upload more than 20 pics at a time. I would like to see added features like a photo editor within the app. This would particularly great if it had milestone stickers and such to add!

  2. Sam Yates-avatar

    App functionality is great. We've been premium members for five years, but they have broken my trust. Rating is for sending spam emails to my account even though I paid for premium which supposedly "removes ads". I guess it only removes ads in the app but they will shove all the ads into your inbox. Extremely disappointed after five years of loving this app. If this is the direction your company is heading you can go ahead without me. UPDATE: They are right you can just unsub from the marketing, it's two different things. We're back, great app. Still would prefer if it was opt in instead of opt out, but so it goes.

  3. Chelsea Uhrig-avatar

    I absolutely loved this app and recommended it to all of my friends and family. However since the last update, it constantly crashes and won't allow me to upload any photos or videos. I'm very frustrated because this app is one of the only ways my daughter's grandparents can see her during this pandemic Edit: 4/28/2020 app has finally started working. I updated my rating because I still love the app when it works.

  4. Dwain Cur-avatar

    Not intuitive. After uploading 20 images the app prompts user to add captions, but only to the first photo. Calendar view is difficult to navigate because the months get blocked by family member avatars. Tried captioning a photo in calendar view, but it brings up incorrect photo, instead displays last photo I successfully captioned. Error message when attempting to delete photos. If you're looking for an app that grandparents can use to view and scroll through family photos, this is not it.

  5. Hannah Grace Campbell-avatar

    Hannah Grace Campbell


    I absolutely love this app and the speed at which the photos and videos upload. We have been premium members for 2 years now. Since I upgraded my phone to a Galaxy S9, my pictures are being uploaded rotated 90 degrees clockwise. When I go into my gallery, the pictures are the correct orientation. What is happening?

  6. Jemma Miller-avatar

    I've always loved this app for my family and have used it daily since my first daughter was born, but I got a new phone two days ago, a Galaxy S10, and can no longer add photos. It only brings up part of my gallery and then when I try to click the photo I want, nothing happens, then the whole app freezes and shuts down. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, logging out, rebooting my phone, clearing app caches, and nothing works. No available updates so it's not that. Must be a bug with S10.

  7. Lauren Daniels-avatar

    We've been using this for 2.5 years! This is the best app ever! I can't say enough good things to people about this when they embark on a parenting journey. Our family is all over the US, and I get messages all the time saying they feel like they're seeing our son everyday! 🥰

  8. Annabel Barritt-avatar

    Annabel Barritt


    No problems so far. Easy to use. Only thing that would be nice would be to be able to see all the photos in a timeline that you could scroll through, rather than having to go onto each individual day on the calendar to look at them.

  9. Beerusein-avatar

    My wife signed up for this app and it shows I have full access for moment uploads but everytime I do I am receiving errors. I lost nearly a month of moments uploads. The concept is great but nothing is allowing g to upload at this time.

  10. Lauren K.-avatar

    Only if you start from day one. There is no bulk uploading option, which is a bummer since my previous service closed down. The ads are HUGE as well. Just doing a good ol Google album for extended family sharing.

  11. Michael Higgins-avatar

    Michael Higgins


    Brilliant alternative now lifecake is dead. The free version of this is better and more feature rich than the paid lifecake successor "back then". Plus lifecake/ backthen customer service is rude and obnoxious whereas tinybeans have been nothing but brilliant thus far

  12. Elise Norman-Hunkin-avatar

    Elise Norman-Hunkin


    I love this app! But since I moved to my new phone I am unable to load photos properly, maybe one at a time and it constantly crashes. Please fix so I can continue to use the premium membership properly.

  13. Mr PaudiR8-avatar

    Perfect app, but wish we could see when our premium version will end so we can reup in time before having to wait a week....I do not use the website I use the app FYI.

  14. Ashley Ouellette-avatar

    Ashley Ouellette


    Doesn't work properly since the new phone. I've been using this app since 2014 never had big issues... I just upgraded to the S20 and this app is barley usable. Please bring out a update to fix some performance issues!

  15. Meg McKeen-avatar

    I was loving this app, I've been using it for months now. Just recently is started crashing. I can't upload anything at all, as soon as I try the app closes. I literally can't even use it anymore and I'm so heartbroken and disappointed.

  16. Tabetha Wirtz-avatar

    I used to LOVE this app, but recently it crashes all the time and will not allow me to upload unless it's from the website.

  17. Britni Arnold-avatar

    We found this ap right after our first son was born almost 5 years ago. It was recommended by the photographer the did our in-hospital newborn shots, they preloaded the ones we paid for to the app. We have NEVER looked back!! Our son's name is Phen, so we've called it his "Phenstagram" haha. We are due with #2 in 2 months and have already added him as a sibling. Love the calendar format!! Makes it so easy to quickly go back to past holidays, etc. This app is by far my favorite app on my phone!!!

  18. Josephine Young-avatar

    Josephine Young


    Perfect app for sharing our photos and videos with family overseas. We really care about privacy and safe guarding our child's digital identity - and this app is so good for that.

  19. Derek Ohlgren-avatar

    Fantastic for sharing baby photos with family without over sharing your life on other social media. Would like to be able to filter the activity for comments only.

  20. Stuart Phillips-avatar

    Stuart Phillips


    Good app, but recently has started crashing when adding content, making it unusable (Android).

  21. Alexander Golovlev-avatar

    Alexander Golovlev


    Absolute trash. Hogs a ton of bandwidth and has very poor and not user friendly functionality for sharing photos that I suspect is also mining email addresses to sell to advertisers. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!

  22. Rachel Cammisa-Cantz-avatar

    Rachel Cammisa-Cantz


    I love that I can record my children's milestones easily. It allows me to share information with my family in a simple way

  23. Jonathan 何林 Hummer-avatar

    Jonathan 何林 Hummer


    This app is clunky and unintuitive. I have multiple babies that are all really the same one and can't figure out how to merge or delete, so it's also confuding for other users.

  24. Selina S-avatar

    It won't load photos since I moved to new phone. I can't add photos to previous dates. Very sad as I love this app and now especially my family want to see pics of the little one

  25. Crystal Bottger-avatar

    Crystal Bottger


    So amazing to have an online photo album and an amazing way to share pictures with family and friends especially if you are not on social media

  26. Nikki Bowden-avatar

    I love it. Such a great way to share with family and friends. Also saw impractical jokers filmed at the office. Seems like a great company as well. Okay,its 3/12 & I'm having problems and have been. It will not. For the life of me, let me upload anything on the day March 8th.... what's going on?

  27. Nicole De Maria-avatar

    Nicole De Maria


    I'm happy that I can easily share my photos with distant family, and the app makes it fairly simple. The main reason I haven't rated it five stars is that the app is a bit clunky. It does not allow you to dismiss posts on the main page that are flashbacks/new memories, you cannot reply to comments people make on photos and have them notified, the activity page needs to be refreshed manually and the app has difficulties accessing all photos on the phone.

  28. Josh R-avatar

    I have used this app on iPhone and was very happy. I have now purchased a pixel and this app on Android is very below the iPhone version. Firstly, when you select a photo on a day and you swipe back to return to the screen before it starts me at the beginning of the day instead of back at the photo I selected. Secondly, why can't the app access all your Google photos as simply as it does on iPhone? I can't access all photos. Thirdly when uploading, photos are all different directions.

  29. Kristie Aynsley-avatar

    Kristie Aynsley


    App keeps crashing, takes forever to load my gallery, and sometimes photos are jumbled up and I can see photos from months ago but not today's. The app used to run so much smoother, I've been using it for 2 years and love it but the last 3-4 months have been painful. I want to keep using it but the bugginess is getting to me

  30. Jeff Dawes-avatar

    My family and I have been enjoying this app. It has become part of our daily routine to take photos of our tiny bean to share with family around the world. Recently, however, I have gotten a new phone (Galaxy S10) and the app doesn't work properly. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it but I am no longer able to upload photos or videos. After pressing the plus button in the calendar screen the app hangs and then shuts down. I can still view previous entries though. Else it would have been 5 stars.

  31. Bri Skiles-avatar

    App force stops anytime trying to upload photos.

  32. Paul Kendal-avatar

    really lovely to find an app that doesn't steal or sell my information. Edited to add that after using this for a year, it's really wonderful. Easy to use and our families love it.

  33. Urmila Misra-avatar

    I cannot open some of the vedeos. I can hear the voice but no vedwo. Please help.

  34. Carrie Farrell-avatar

    Keeps crashing on my Samsung Galaxy S10+. It won't load my image gallery and eventually just freezes up my whole phone. I didn't have this issue with my older Samsung. Before this the app worked great for me.

  35. Chrissy Kruchten-avatar

    Chrissy Kruchten


    Usually love it. Last week or so it is laggy, and won't load pictures for me to choose from. Then constantly restarts. Please fix!

  36. Emily Henslick-avatar

    I love this app for sharing photos and videos of my baby with my family and close friends. This way, I'm not spamming my Facebook friends with all those pictures, but my family can still see them all.

  37. Allyssa Mason-avatar

    I enjoyed this app in 2015, but for some reason, over 6 months of photos of my daughter are gone now... What was the point in linking the app to my facebook, if it was all going to get deleted anyway?

  38. Whitney Pickering-avatar

    Whitney Pickering


    A great way for family from all over the country or world watch little ones grow up without having to use Facebook or IG. Private so parents don't have to worry about predators snooping online!

  39. Deborah Kane-avatar

    Great way to share photos without having to send them to a dozen different people.

  40. Natalia Nazarewicz-avatar

    Ads removed from home screen; app is five stars again.

  41. Victoria Stoner-avatar

    Victoria Stoner


    It is taking hours to upload pictures that used to take minutes, what has happened to this fantastic app?

  42. Molly Henricks-avatar

    This app lets you feel like you are right there even when you are clear across the country. Love it

  43. Lauren Hyman-avatar

    Love the app but I cannot upload videos anymore which is really upsetting

  44. Jerry Harris-avatar

    Update , slow as molasses all other phne aps work great . Old ap or browser used to work .

  45. Melissa Carson-avatar

    Love this app, able to see my granddaughter every day, when I can't be there in person.

    Jonathan Woodworth


    All good, but way too many ads!

  48. Jake Dompier-avatar

    Cumbersome, activity log doesn't keep up to date.

  49. Maxwell Stein-avatar

    EDIT: +1 star. Thank you - During my second purchase it was not clear that I had made an initial purchase and seeing ads in the feed after purchasing lead me to double purchase - this is true. I was informed that no new ads should be added to the feed after the subscription (old ones stay), but I did continue to experience new ads. I did finally receive my refund, but it took many emails and follow ups despite directly asking for one from the beginning. The initial response was that a refund was not possible which of course was a lie. The overall experience was frustrating and overall felt like the goal was to make it difficult enough that I would just walk away.

  50. Megan Newman-avatar

    Very glitchy app and not easy to navigate. I have to click on a picture 6 or 7 times to get it to open up. Even worse trying to get videos to play. The interface is cumbersome. You have to click in and out of photos to enlarge it then see the next one and to change days. Make it easier to scroll through pictures. You also have to go through the hassle of opening a picture just to like or comment because you can't do that from the main page. This app needs to work on their user interface.

  51. Janelle-avatar

    No option to turn off downloads by users who are not owners of the album. The entire point is privacy, but it is super easy for family and friends to download your images. Otherwise, the app is a bit confusing to navigate. UPDATE: I had no idea there was a website. I am old and prefer websites. TinyBeans does indeed do all the things I would like it to do.

  52. Don Harlan-avatar

    easy and organized

  53. Barbara Lange-avatar

    My granddaughter was born yesterday and, not wanting to post baby pictures on social media, my daughter selected this app for sharing baby pictures with family and friends privately. We quickly discovered that the app is buggy and difficult to use. Upload times were slow and photos that one person had uploaded were not viewable by others. Now, the app won't let me delete pictures I previously uploaded to share. We switched to the Family Album app which works WAY better.

  54. Becki Bushman-avatar

    I cannot say enough good things about Tinybeans! First of all, I just love the app and so do all of my friends and family. Most importantly, I have been so impressed and satisfied with their customer service. I have had a few issues here and there with the app due to phone and/or app updates and any time I reach out, they are so responsive and quick to keep me updated. I cannot recommend this company enough and wish so many others had this amazing service!

  55. onePurp-avatar

    My friend recommended me to use this app to stay connected with friends and family for those special moments and I never had any problems with this app at all. It is exciting to see a new picture uploaded on to the calendar and you can go back all the way to the beginning of the first picture when you first start it.

  56. A Google user-avatar

    Love this app and use it daily to share baby photos with geography distant family. This release, however, has two noticeable and highly annoying bugs. First, the display order has been reversed. When you sort the items into the order you want, what you get is the exact opposite. Second, there is a long delay between new item notification and the ability to view it in app. I will get a notification that my sister-in-law has added a moment, but it doesn't show up for what feels like an hour. I notified the dev team a month ago regarding the first issue and they already knew about the bug. A month later and they still haven't released a fix!

  57. Jennifer Mitchell-avatar

    Jennifer Mitchell


    Like the idea of the app. All of the ways to embellish the photos is nice and sharing is easy. I have on fairly big usability problem though. When I go to add moments some days are just totally missing. They are in the camera folder on my phone, but don't show up in the app. The only work around I've found is to message them to myself and then download them and add them from the downloads folder. This is inconvenient and it means sometimes I miss days without realising it.

  58. Alicia Laub-avatar

    Great app so far. My only gripe is that the only way to invite people is by email. I don't have many people's email addresses in my contacts so I had to type them in individually. As most people have smartphones now I expected the option to send a text message to my chosen contacts with a link to the app store and maybe a unique code or something to access my albums. It would also be nice to add a personalised message so you can explain to your family why you're sending them the invitation.

  59. Laura Prendergast-avatar

    Laura Prendergast


    Love this app! Great way to share pics privately. A few things would improve it, in my opinion: Allow for comments and reactions to comments (a la other social networking sites). I get notified when someone comments but if I respond, I don't think they hear back. Not sure why this isn't a thing already (unless copyright?). Also, better instructions for uploading (like with screenshots). I've had to do very basic tech instructions for grandparents who aren't so savvy. Otherwise, great app!

  60. Sarah Visintini-avatar

    Sarah Visintini


    I love this app. When we had our baby we weren't super comfortable with sharing photos via social media - this was the perfect compromise! I love that my friends and fam can either get the app or login online to see photos (perfect when some folks still don't have smart devices). I also like that people can download photos from the app/website if they like them (which is what I do when my partner takes photos I really like, instead of constantly asking him to text them to me).

  61. Gina Farag Yen-avatar

    I love this app! It allows me to share photos with loved ones easily and without killing the memory on my phone or theirs. Family and friends who don't want to download the app love the email feature which keeps them updated on a regular basis. Additionally, I like that I can track milestones and write notes to remember certain events. Areas for improvement. One, I can't seem to upload multiple files at once, especially if it's photos and videos. Two, the milestones feature is buried in the app.

  62. molly mclain-avatar

    Bought premium lifetime membership and multiple times uploads won't go through to other users but show up on mine. People have had lots of problems with login and notifications. Hope they do better.

    I truly loved this app! That was, until I upgraded from an S8 to an S10. Now none of the effects, stickers, overlays, etc will download. It constantly says retry. That was one of my favorite reasons for choosing and using this app. I realllllly hope this company fixes this issue, since I also see that other users have had the same issues as of late. I'll gladly update my review to 5 stars if and when this gets fixed!

    I wish we could "like" or "love" each others family comments and not just the pics/vids, but this app keeps me sane. My neice and nephew are so far away.....

    Love this app. I have tried a few baby journal apps before purchasing Tinybeans subscription. Some apps don't allow to print or to download or you have to pay separately for each child. Tinybeans has it all - easy to use with all the necessary functionality. Also, it has a good photo editor plus you can create hidden posts visible only to admins. I'm new to app and am not using it to full capacity but I'm keen to learn.

    Generally good app, but disappointed with premium, I feel like it isn't worth the price tag (and thats with the black friday discount, full price is just insane, would never pay full price for this). Ads are gone, but the "articles" that now appear are basically just ads in another form. i would rate much higher if there was an option to turn off the "articles" as well.

    LOVE this app! Great way to share privately with close friends and family with no risk to a social media profile. Also helps to manage the amount of info shared to prevent overwhelming anyone. The articles are relevant and informative. Ads are not intrusive. I particularly love the flashback function. This app makes me happy :)

    This is an awesome app!!!! Essentially it's a digital baby book. I love how you add the pictures, videos, milestones, erc. to the calendar day they were taken/the event happened. There is no guessing or trying to remember when the moment was captured. Your entries are private and you choose who you want to see them. I love sharing my baby's moments this way and keeping them off of Facebook and other social media. LOVE THIS APP!

    I have been using TinyBeans for going on two years now, and paying for premium, but lately the Android app has been disappointing - it doesnt keep in sync, I get notifications for events that don't appear on the calendar, and the likes and comments are sometimes duplicated. The webapp is buggy in other ways. It's not really good enough. I'm a fan of the concept but there are just too many bugs.

  70. A Google user-avatar

    I'd give it 5 star but uploading videos doesn't work with the newest version of Android. Very frustrating. If i try to upload a video anything I try to upload after gets stuck. Only solution is to uninstall and reinstall - which is not a practical solution. Hopefully an update is coming soon to fix this.

  71. A Google user-avatar

    This app has some great features e.g. milestones suggestions/unlimited storage but photos are slow to open even on premium. The calendar view is neat but a whole month is shown, making each day's photo too tiny to see without opening (i have a large phone screen). You also have to click on a day to see more than your chosen main photo for thay day.Would be nice if all photos could be displayed by scrolling, and if the thumbnails were larger e.g. by zooming in from 1month view. I'll be cancelling.

    I really like the tinybeans app because it allows you to share photos of your babies with friends and family exclusively. Yes, they have to download the app to get the updates but I have peace of mind knowing that the viewing of my photos is by invite only. My family has really enjoyed seeing all the photos and videos. I have not tried the premium membership yet but so far have really enjoyed the free version and would recommend it to anyone looking for a way to share photos of their little with a group of people without having to worry about who is looking at them on social media and/or having to text pictures.

  73. Mary Foltz-avatar

    We use it to privately share daily baby updates (pictures and videos) with our family. Everyone tells us how much they appreciate it. It is especially great for our distant relatives who arent able to see him in person. The app and website are easy to use and view photos, even for the great grandparents! We like the calendar format of viewing. We paid for the premium version to allow for full resolution photo storage, no ads, longer videos, and to support this awesome company. Worth every penny.

    I like thr odea of this but adding photos is SO tedious. it doesnt link up aith Google Photos. You can't search by date once you are choosing a photo. you have to manually scroll back forever if you are looking for photoya from an older date. It's 2019, two things this app should be able to do are sort photos by date and provide a functional search option for finding photos by date.

  75. Ishwar Morey-avatar

    Nice app, i love it! Its a great idea to timeline the progress of baby in form of pics and videos. Also i love the fact that i can privately share the content only with my family. There are a couple of things though which i'd like them to improve: 1. Allow a way to import/export pics from/to google photos or drive. 2. Make search by date range available, otherwise we have to scroll through lot of content.

  76. Winn Jewett-avatar

    We paid for a year, expecting that this would get rid of the ads. Double-dipping on subscription fees and ad revenue is shameful. Also, I do not take any value from the articles that are forced into the app. I understand that these articles are good for SEO, but keep them on the website, where they belong. Your website lists 3 features: family sharing, organization, and printing. Stop trying to add value to the app, just because you already have the content.

    I absolutely love this app! I can quickly share photos and videos with family and friends all at the same time! I love that I am able to catalogue my little one's first years in a simple and organized fashion. My family is also grateful to be able to keep track as well and are able to post comments on photos and videos. I am excited to share this with my tiny bean one day!

  78. Kelli Beard-avatar

    We've used Tinybeans for about 2 years now. I love the calendar! Its so easy to look back at my childrens memories. I am not on Facebook and do not like to put my girls out there for the world to see. That's the beauty of this app, you choose who is to view pictures. ********There is a huge flaw though. For this being a safe share site, you would think they would disable screen captures. Keep that in mind with what you post! *********

  79. Albert Mai-avatar

    Great app to store, keep and reminisce moments, photos and videos of your kids as well as to share with your family members and friends in a private and secure way

  80. Sara Rose-avatar

    App works well but the number of ads is ridiculous. Almost a one-to-one ratio with the baby pictures, which makes it harder to view the content I care about.

  81. Dmitriy Goliy-avatar

    2 star mainly because of FRUSTRATING Sponsored content even after we paid for a lifetime subscription! Please don't clutter the Home page with this redundant content! Add an option to remove it, or have a separate place in the app for it. Other clunky parts of the app: 1) Settings are really hard to locate. 2) Photo memory comments UX needs quite a few improvements. And more, hard to fit in one message. Need a free advise from professional Android developer on this? Feel free to contact me.

  82. Liyang Diao-avatar

    I was looking for a way to share photos with family members exclusively, and this app makes it so easy to do so. I just snap pictures with my phone, select "share", and the TinyBeans app pops up as an option for sharing. Fast, easy, and with a reasonably priced premium option, no one in your network sees any ads, and any photo books you make ship free all over the world! It's exactly what I was looking for.

  83. Rachel Curvin-avatar

    Love the format for adding pictures to share with family. It'd be great if the albums were more customizable, but the calendar feature is a win! Big pitfall is the "people" section. It doesn't indicate who has joined from your invitations. The worst part is that their username/display name cannot be edited by you upon submitting them. So I've got some people listed as their email address and some how I named them under contacts- neither of which align with what it should be for this app. It would also be AMAZING if photos could be added from Google, Facebook, etc... Hoping to see a few updates soon and then would happily up my stars.

  84. Amy Dodds-avatar

    I was introduced to this app by a friend who's baby was born a month prior to mine. I love that we can watch our babies grow together. It's a great app for those who choose not to be on social media, either the parents or the grandparents. I also love the flashbacks it's fun to see my baby all squishy and small again. I would rather pay a set price than a subscription to get rid of the ads but that is my only issue. Other than that I highly recommend this app to everyone I meet with a new little

    Loved it with my first child: easy to use and look back to remember small moments both with the calendar format and the email flashbacks. However, I haven't been able to upload much for my second child since the app barely opens and suddenly shuts down. I thought maybe because I needed an update but that is not the case.

    Really great. Private journal for families.. TB seems to have experimented with the Home page layout favouring stories and sponsor material. But it seems to be back to favouring your own material again. Had a video upload issue from my android phone. Cleared cache/ data. Wrote to customer services. Not sure if they fixed it but it works again now. It is a wonderful app.

  87. Mimi O'Donnell-avatar

    I used to love using the app but not anymore ever since the new update. Before the update, when I wanted to add a photo, I was able to click on a picture to view it in a larger size and then tick the box if I wanted to add that moment to the calender. But now any time I click on a picture, it automatically ticks the box. The photo editing tools should not have been changed. They were perfect before the new update and there were so many editing options. Now its just basic. I'm very disappointed.

  88. A Google user-avatar

    Just updated the app because when I opened it and tried to add a memory the app would crash. Unfortunately the update is not really any better. It doesn't crash but it also doesn't do anything else. The calendar won't load....the only thing I can see are the cards (which by the way have wrong dates on them...pictures of my son when he was a newborn that say they were taken 2 months ago....my son is 7). Hoping this can be fixed

  89. Amy Dale-avatar

    This app is such an easy way to share the moments I capture with my family. It was easy to input their emails and it is really easy to post pictures and even short videos each day. My mum and my mother in law have both said that receiving their tiny beans update is their favourite part of the day. My dad enjoys commenting on the things I post and the app keeps everyone in the family up to date with my daughter's development and activity without having to message everyone or post to a public site. I tell all my pregnant friends about this app!

  90. Sarah Hall-avatar

    Love the app and that I can share all of my pictures with only the people I want to see them in an easy way. I knocked a star off though because since the most recent update, all of the pictures for any given day are viewed backwards. So even though I upload them starting with morning pictures and ending with evening pictures, people who view the pictures from that day see them from evening to morning :( otherwise, huge fan of tiny beans!

  91. Ashley Talley-avatar

    I loved this app! Now...it seems that the update has taken away many features I used often. I had more editing options, stickers, frames, and enhancements before your update. The current choices are limited. Where do I get more options? I even paid for the yearly subscription service.

  92. Rachel Carden-avatar

    We absolutely love it! Having family all over Australia makes it hard to see them regularly but this app keeps them updated in a great, secure and easy way. We especially love that family members can choose how often they get notifications, meaning we can upload lots of photos knowing we are not annoying them.

    "Room for improvement" it would be nice to edit things such as misspellings in names and other information. I tried deleting a name and email after noticing it was misspelled and when I added the email with the right spelled name it went back to the misspelling. now my family members name is wrong on the app forever? why? I would make that adjustment.

  94. Steve ten Have-avatar

    This app used to be a really nice portal for our family to see where our daughter was at. Recent changes and advertising has really put us off. The home page landing is just awful and frankly we don't want the application to be some kind of information hub, it's supposed to be about sharing our daughters moments. Moreover you're asking $70 PER YEAR!!?!? I'd consider paying that once but not year on year. It's an utter rort and as such we're looking elsewhere. Wrong direction sorry, bad changes.

  95. e paparoupas-avatar

    With the latest update 3.20.16 the possibility to reorder photos is not working, new photos are not shown to other people and Tinybean is stuck to a specific date and if you uninstall the app and reinstall it all photos are gone, app seems to be loading forever and the application crashes. An urgent update is needed to restore the funtionality to an excellent app. Currently not usable and unstable. Can review photos only from the website, not the app .

  96. Lacey Sargent-avatar

    When my sonn was first born I had a slew of texts every day of well meaning people asking for pictures and updates. It was hard to keep up with while caring for a newborn. Enter tinybeans. I was able to add my family and friends and share daily updates with everyone. It's easy and feels safer than using social media.

  97. Kelly Powers-Hamp-avatar

    It used to be 5 stars for me but I intensely dislike the current update, the whole point of the app is to be a calendar journal for the baby. Having it no longer open up on the calendar just annoys me every single time I open it and it doesn't allow me to edit settings on what my home page should be just makes me mad. NEW UPDATE - Apparently everyone is now getting bombarded with marketing emails from tinybeans, this is unacceptable and they miss the actual photos of my kid emails. Down 2 stars

  98. Kelv-avatar

    Constant issues with playing vidoes. Freezes about 5 to 10 seconds in. Load times are also really bad on mobile or wifi. Otherwise it would be great

  99. neil h-avatar

    We tried several apps for sharing pics & videos of our new grandchild, but TB distinguished itself from all of them. It was the easiest to set up, as well as the simplest and most effective way to engage with family & friends around the world. Love yer work, Tiny Beans!!

  100. Keyur Sorathia-avatar

    Horrible app. Useless. No additional features or services for baby pictures or albums. Use Google photos instead. Easier and more effective
