Tésa and I joke often about my iPhone being the place where videos ‘go to die.’ I always have my iPhone on me and frequently forget my camera. Fortunately, the iPhone does a pretty good job with pictures and videos. Unfortunately, I do a poor job of saving my videos to our computer or uploading them to the internet, and of course, sharing the videos with family and friends. The opportunity to share these videos with family and friends is why I was excited to be offered the chance to review Joya, an app for the iPhone which will make this process so much easier.
Joya allows you to share the everyday moments you capture on your iPhone in an extremely easy manner. What a great way to make sure you are able to do what your videos are meant for . . . share and enjoy!
I started to think about why all of my videos seem to be stuck on my iPhone. Uploading them to YouTube is a great option, but this can be a longer process, and I am not comfortable having my videos, which are mainly of my children, out there for everyone to see. The same goes for Facebook. It can be a lengthier process to upload, and even then, I would be sharing the videos with a ton of ‘friends’ who have no interest in viewing them. Lastly, when I do get proactive and try to email the video out as an attachment, the end result is often a returned email saying my message content was too large to send . . . ugh.
This is where you can truly appreciate the beauty and ease of use of Joya.
Simply download the app from iTunes and Joya will connect with your video library. You can then select which contacts you wish to add to your Joya favorites list. Next you select one or multiple videos to forward to your contacts.
The recipient will receive an email or a text message stating they have a video that has been shared with them. All they need to do is click the link and they are taken to a web page, or the recipient can download the Joya app as well, where they are able to view the video(s).
Your recipient will have the ability to save the video to their computer for later viewing as well. Lastly, upon your recipient opening the link, you are notified and told that the video has been viewed.
What a great, easy and simple way to share family videos with family! Check out Joya and download it from the iTunes Store. It’s free, and well worth checking out.
What about you? What video has been sitting on your phone that you need to share with your family and friends?
