GrooveBook app review: create your very own photobook using just your iPhone or iPad 2021



Now enjoy your photos the old-school way: in a personalized photo album. GrooveBook is a great new iPhone and iPad photo album app that sends you a bound book of perforated photographs that you can feel and touch.

Although this is a free poto organizing app, it works on the basis of a fixed monthly subscription of $2.99. Although this may seem like a bit of a commitment, I think it's a great idea to have a monthly photobook sent over to yourself with pictures that you've taken from your iPhone or iPad!

I got very excited about the concept of this photo organization app because I love the idea of physical photo albums. I remember when I was younger how my loved ones and I would gather around photo albums and go through them together.

This is just not possible on mobile devices because we take far too many pictures unlike the hand-picked nature of the photos in albums that you can touch, remove, and replace.

The latest updates have improved overall peformance to make it even more enjoyable to use. Learn more about this and the app's popular features in our GrooveBook app review. When finished, check out our best photo organizer app lists for more options.

How often do we now take the time to collect the thousands of pictures we take from our mobile devices and print them out? GrooveBook will do that for you and the monthly subscription fee also includes shipping as well as processing.

When you are ready and wish to select photos from your iPhone or iPad to submit to GrooveBook, you simply choose the ones you want and upload them. It must be noted that at this stage, if you have chosen to upload some photos and leave your phone aside to process the request, your phone may lock.

When this happens, the upload process gets canceled, so make sure that you prevent your phone from locking during the uploading process.

Every month, when you follow this process, you will receive a beautiful photo book measuring 4.5” x 6.5”. These photos are perforated so they can be taken out of the book and shared with friends and family or used to form a greeting card!

Imagine how easy it would be to create Christmas cards if you were to use this app! Furthermore, if you wish to create additional books, they can also be ordered and mailed directly by GrooveBook to your loved ones.

Be surprised by a bold new cover made by the photo organizing app each month and with a colorful spine to mark your dates . You can select 40-100 photos to print in your photo organization app.

The photos will be enclosed in a printed, perforated, bound book and mailed to you while each photo will also include the location and date where the pictures were snapped by you, as per the format of the iPhone or iPad.

I think GrooveBook is a great concept that reminds us to unplug from the matrix sometimes and enjoy technology in hard copy.
