23snaps - free app to create private digital journal of your children

I recently received an email about 23snaps, which the creators describe as a family photo sharing app with a difference. 

They explain : "23snaps is designed and built by dads, with families and privacy in mind. The free 23snaps app allows parents to capture their children’s precious moments as they happen in a beautiful digital journal. Updates can be shared easily and securely with close family and friends, either in real time or through beautifully presented email digests. 23 snaps is not just Facebook for families - it has loads of unique family-friendly features like height and weight status updates, joint profiles for partners and funny sounds to get kids to look at the camera. The idea isn't to have as many friends as possible; it's to share and treasure your most precious moments with those closest to you."

I've been to have a look and, at first glance, it does look very similar to facebook so, for anyone who has ever used facebook (that can't eliminate that many people, surely ?!), it is very simple and intuitive to use. I love the way that privacy is key and that you can have a joint account with the other parent. It has some really nice features like the photo filters and I know that people who shy away from new technology, such as elderly relatives and grandparents, will love receiving the email updates without having to go searching for new updates on blogs or facebook feeds.

You can download the app for iPhone or iPad at or set up your free account online at There is also a version of the app available for Android that will be released into the Play store in the next week or two.
