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.
