My Favorite Under $10: Chatbooks

I am the world's worst at uploading and sorting iPhone photos. Which is unfortunate as I take more photos with my phone than I do with my camera. When I learned that the Chatbooks app will upload and arrange all of your IG photos in one handy and pretty little photobook I said, Yes, please. And that the books are only $6? Even better. The procrastinator with phone photos from 2011 rejoiced.

My first book arrived this weekend and I could not be happier with it:

I chose Dad and I at his Father's Day dinner on the lake for the cover.

The photos are a little grainy as they are three years old and were taken with my old iPhone3. Little Kid loved looking through the book and seeing her life at age 3. Big Kid was eh, as only ten-year-old boys are.

The Type A in me especially liked this detail -

The app cannot be any easier - it does everything for you and will even arrange them into volumes. Each book holds 60 pages and is $6/book with a subscription. I ordered just one to test it out but plan to go back and have the rest of them printed out. The only drawback that I have found is that the app does not save your work so if you are ordering a large number of books, carve out some time to edit and organize. Chatbooks told me that I had enough photos to make 24 books. If you follow Team Skelley on Instagram you already know that a sizable chunk of my photos are nonsense and those will not make it into the books. So that number will shrink.

I think that these would make great grandparent gifts for the not-so-tech savvy. All of our grandparents are on Facebook but not IG, so they have seen few of these. This is not a paid review, I just enjoy sharing stuff with y'all that I think you will like.

Happy Tuesday!

Joining up with:


  1. Super cool. I had no idea such a thing existed.

  2. Hi! I am visiting from the link up! I do GrooveBook and I love it but I think I may need to give these Chatbooks a shot! Have a great week!

  3. The Chatbooks look like they're a nice quality! I need to try them :)

  4. I've got to try these, especially since I use IG as a journal of sorts! www.camillecolumbia.blogspot.com

    1. My IG photos are almost completely separate from Facebook and the blog so I was starting to get concerned about losing them all in some weird Instagram site meltdown or what not. Of course now I worry that the house will burn down or my basset hound Fletcher will eat my Chatbook. :) Thanks for stopping by!
