Do you have so many pictures on your camera roll you have to delete old ones before adding more? Want to share more with family but not over share on Facebook? A new app aims to help parents collect, curate, privately share and print memories of their family.

It had to include not just pictures, but also the backstories that give those pictures meaning along with other memories like the funny things the kids say. I looked around at other options and couldn’t find anything that gave me all that and also kept me in control of my stuff.”

The Arkiver App is available for free on the App store for iPhones and iPads, on Google Play for Android devices and on the web at
