I love the idea but there is a lot of work needed on the execution. Pretty quickly, the questions get recycled or are just generic (ie. what did you do today). I expected thoughtful questions to help me keep track of things I might not have recorded myself, but I’m finding I skip all the questions and just record my own milestones which is not the point of the app. Also the app is buggy and not easy to navigate. It loses the information you type if you leave the app mid entry. It refreshes every time you open so I’m constantly scrolling. The other big problem I have is the book output. It is not customizable and the book is really clunky. If I actually printed a book with all the memories and pictures I want to save, it would be hundreds of pages because it’s formatted so poorly. If I hadn’t paid for a year, I would have stopped using this within the first month. Now I’m just using it to record and making my own book on another platform. I would not recommend or use again.
Hello! I just had this happen once I download the app where I wasn’t able to use my front facing camera it would be black ! But once I deleted the app from my phone the camera is working find ! I think you need to fix this as I now have to go to the website to do anything for my Qeepsake!
I really like the idea of keeping the electronic journal and make a book later concept. However, the questions are very repetitive(same question would be asked not only more than once but couple times). There is no way you can search a certain question because it is not categorized, you have to go through all the entries to edit the entry. Photos too, wish there is a gallery view so that I don’t add same photo twice. They also sort of force customers to get subscriptions because the limitation of book orders. I don’t like it that you have to get a year subscription at a time. I ended up with ordering a traditional baby book anyway. This is sort of wasting money and time. Would not recommend it to any friends.
Just started using app. Very user friendly. Anxious to see how the book turns out.
I love this app bc it reminds me to journal, add photos and fun memories to an album. I just purchased my first book and it turned out great! I have entries from when I’m 6 mos pregnant to 1 year old. I’m so glad I stumbled across Qeepsake. We will treasure the memories & continue using the app as long as I can!
So convenient! Love this app, what an awesome idea!!
This is what I’ve needed to preserve all the precious fleeting moments of my children’s lives! I’ve wanted to do something for years that I can look back on and remember because I know most moments, although special, funny, or heartwarming, I will forget. Not only do I have the ability to do that with Qeepsake, I also don’t have to overthink what to write or worry about never being able to see it in print. Qeepsake sends me the questions, gives the opportunity for me to add unprompted entries, and makes the memory book for me!
Since my son is now 5 years old and my daughter is 4 I would love to be able to go back much farther in fb to link old posts
I’ve been using Qeepsake for about 2 months now. The questions are hit or miss but having something to remind me everyday to capture memories as my baby grows is really nice. Using the app I find there are a few things that can be improved: 1) the search function doesn’t work (I tried to search by key words but it would always return “no results”). When you have a lot of entries, not having this function is inconvenient; 2) shortly after I switch to another app (usually to pick out the picture or pictures I want to upload), I would lose my progress when I switch back to Qeepsake app. By “shortly” we’re talking about within 15-20 seconds. I had background app refresh on but it apparently can’t run in the background.
We are a busy household. As first time parents there’s so much we want to document and save. QEEPSAKE takes away the thinking of what to document by giving us the questions. Some questions are things we hadn’t considered documenting. Can’t wait to order the book. That’s another stress free thing. Not having to spend endless time in perfecting a keep sake book. Totally worth it!
