I would imagine that everyone has a grandparent or older relative that isn’t terribly savvy when it comes to computers or smart phones. My poor grandmother. We send photos; she can’t open them. She asks to read my blog. I try to explain the URL and that she can go to it whenever she wants. It just doesn’t stick.
She needs to be able to click once and wait.
Here’s to hoping a new iPhone app will be our saving grace. Joya is a new iPhone app that allows you to easily send one or more videos with friends and family regardless of file size. Simply send the video via the app to friends and family and it shows up as a link. No download necessary. They just click on a URL and view the video. Anyone can do it. I think even my grandmother.
Wait, how does Joya work?
- Download the Joya app on your iPhone
- Add contact information for your favorite people (cell or email) to your “favorites”
- Connect to your iPhone library
- Send one or multiple videos to your list of favorites
- The recipient will receive a link via text or email, click it and watch it. No iPhone or software required.
This is what the email looks like in your inbox. Seriously SO EASY!
I’ve tested it out on my husband while he’s been out of town. It’s been great because most of my videos end up being way too large to text or email from my phone. Or I take an awesome, hilarious video of the kids and right before I upload to YouTube, I realize they are both naked or in their underwear. That’s not something I want to share with the world, but I DO want to show close family.
Joya makes that possible. Oh, and did I mention it’s a FREE app. YAY!
I’m anxious to see how this works with our extended family. Wish me luck with my grandmother!
