Gone are the days when party planning was stressful! With the app fotobooks, all your party planning and memories are stored in one place. Saving your precious memories – and your sanity. For anyone who has ever tried to get their guest list under control and organize a memorable party, you know that all the little details can ruin the fun. Not anymore.
fotobooks is an app that coordinates all the fun for you and your guests. This extraordinary app works like an event planner, a social media coordinator, a gift registry, and a digital memory book. It handles everything – down to ordering food – for you! It sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. It’s real, and it is E-Z.
I played around with the app to see how it worked, and I am sold. With my daughter’s birthday coming up, I set up the entire party on my phone in a matter of minutes. Even better, I know that when the party rolls around, the app will be the only party help I need.
This is all you have to do:
Like other social media event tools, the first step for fotobooks is to set up the details for the party. This is quick and simple. You name your party, and you can personalize it by uploading photos or using stock photo backgrounds on the app. Then, you fill in the other essentials like the date, time, and address.
Step 2 is where fotobooks starts to stand out from other apps. The next step allows you to set up a registry. You can add gift card options to a wide variety of retailers (such as Amazon) and add specific gifts.
As a mom, this is huge! Anyone who has ever been to a child’s birthday party knows kids get a whole lot of stuff that they do not necessarily need or want. Instead, this registry tool makes it easy for you to set up gift cards to your favorite places, as well as register for actual gifts from Amazon and Walmart. This is so much better than just random gifting – for you and the guests!
The next step is inviting guests. Since this is a mobile app, it works by using your contact list. Then, you very quickly and easily select those from the contact list you want to invite. The app will then send them an invite to your event. Meanwhile, on the event page, you will have a ready-made guest list. As guests RSVP, you will receive notifications.
Since our lives are busy, fotobooks also makes it easy to keep in contact with your party guests in the days leading up to the event and after. You can send out reminders, but you can also post and comment on the event. Plus, there is also an event chat option. For the social butterflies, this means you will keep all your group events and conversations regarding who is bringing what or wearing what separate.
When the big day arrives, you can even use the app to order pizza for the party.
When the day arrives, all you will need to do is celebrate and make memories! fotobooks has already kept track of the guest list, gifts, and ordered pizza. But, the fun has just begun! During the party, make the most of your memories by having all the guests use fotobooks to upload pictures. All of your memories from the party will be stored in the app on that event page. And, that’s not all! With the touch of a button, you can take all those party photos and allow fotobooks to put all the party photos into a printable photo book.
See? It really is that easy. When throwing a party, I want everyone to have a memorable time (myself included). fotobooks has made it possible by taking the stress out of party planning.
