As much as Facebook and other social media allow us to keep tabs on what our family members are doing, they don’t necessarily keep us truly connected. As helpful as social media may be, liking a status just doesn’t have the same appeal as actually keeping in touch with your family members. But more technology doesn’t mean we’re drifting apart. Just the opposite, in fact. It’s easier than ever to pick up the phone, drop an email in someone’s inbox, or share your latest photos with them.
That’s what the Nixplay app is all about. Sharing photos in a way that’s truly personal and specific to the people you love and care about. Here’s how it works.
Your Nixplay WiFi Cloud Frame can already display and change through all the photos you want to see each day. The Nixplay app allows you to send photos directly to that frame, even adding captions before you send them. Take photos from your phone’s camera or gallery, and send them to the frame you want them to appear on.
Think about it, your family probably gets together a couple times a year, but for the most part you’re out doing your own thing. The Nixplay app allows you to share photos from your vacation, childhood milestones, or even just a great picture that you and your significant other took together. The photos will appear on your relatives’ WiFi Cloud frames, and they’ll be able to keep up with your life, just like you’ll be able to keep up with theirs.
Staying connected isn’t always about telling them every little detail that’s happening at your house. Sometimes it’s just about that daily reminder of the people you love and care about. Your brother living three states away probably talks about how fast his kids are growing up, but wouldn’t you rather see for yourself? With the Nixplay app, all he has to do is tap a screen and send the proof directly to your frame.
There’s something special about knowing that they sent you a photo, thinking of you specifically, rather than putting them up online and hoping you’ll take notice. It’s a more intimate form of photo sharing, and it helps keep your family thinking about each other, even when you don’t have time for an hour-long phone call.
And what about when you can’t get together for the holidays? The more your family expands, the harder it might be to get everyone together. So if you’re spending Thanksgiving with the in-laws, get everyone together for a group photo around the table, write a caption, and send it to your families WiFi Cloud Frame. You can’t always be there in person, but with the Nixplay app you can experience the next best thing.
So if you’re looking for a new, more personal way to stay connected with your family this year, then head over to Nixplay and pick out the WiFi Cloud Frame that’s right for you.
