One of the things that often gets brought up when I'm discussing Project 365 is how difficult it can be to keep up with. So after a few requests and one demand - you know who you are :) - I decided to share a way you could keep up with Project 365 from your phone. No, this isn't how I'm doing it right now, but I do think it's a great option and this is possibly a way I will stay caught up with it this year once I have a little baby and wild toddler to tend to.
There are a variety of apps that would allow you to do this fairly easily from your phone. For this post, I will focus on 3 apps that I think make a good combination for this purpose.
For starters, you need an app to blog with. BlogPress is definitely the best one out there. It used to be free, but then it went away for awhile. Thankfully now it's back, but it's $2.99. I will say it's definitely worth it though given the options it has.
Next, as I mentioned yesterday, I'd recommend the Project 365 app. This isn't a must, but it does make it easier to stay on track and know if you've taken your picture for the day. I love the fact that you can set reminders to take a picture. This is a free app.
Now for the picture & journaling portion of it, I would recommend the Red Stamp app, which is also free. I think this is such a fun app! You can basically build a little "greeting card" and then email, text, or save it to your phone for free. Or you can pay to actually paper mail your designs...pretty cool and very user friendly! I will say that if you save the design to your phone, etc., it has their little logo on the bottom, but I don't think it's bad at all - did you even notice it in the photo above? Anyway, let's get started!
1. Download Red Stamp and open the app. It will show all the options of card types. Most of the different themes have photo designs in them, but I think there are plenty of great designs in the "photo" section.
I think after doing this a few times, it would become fairly easy and quick to do. I did notice that some designs might be better than others in regard to being able to easily ready them. Generally speaking, the ones that have darker text seem easier to read, but that's not always the case...just a matter of personal preference I suppose.
Well I hope this is helpful to some of you, and if you use another app to do this I'd love to hear about it too. Go Team Project 366! (haha!!)
