Tech Tuesday: Keepy is an app that lets you throw kids’ art away

Keepy, an art-saving app

If I kept everything my children bring home from school, I would be drowning in twelve times as much paper as I actually am. It’s hard enough, finding things in my own house. I’m glad I came upon the idea of photographing children’s art, certificates, and other masterpieces before disassembling them or recycling them. Now, an app called Keepy has taken the ritual of saving to a whole new level.

Keepy allows you to capture your child’s work, assign it to his or her profile in your app, and annotate it with audio or video. When you share it with family members, they can respond with their own video message.

Each child gets her own timeline. Watch the video below to see how it works.

    This sounds like such a neat app (in fact, one of my friends recommended it to me this week as her kid art solution of choice). As for what to do with the art you want to display before filing it away with the app (or in the trash), here are some clever (and frugal) ways to display kids’ ever evolving art that I’ve come across recently:

    I’ve been using Artkive for over a year….and I LOVE it! I have such peace of mind knowing that Artkive is safely storing my childrens
    artwork, and even better are the beautiful books I’ve made for their grandparents to treasure.

    I have been using Artkive to do this. It’s easy and I love their customer service. Every time I email they’ve gotten right back to me so I have to put in my two cents and say that you should look up their app too.
