First Smile – Baby Scrapbook is a free Android app which helps you make a scrapbook containing baby photos and videos. This scrapbook can also be shared with friends and family easily. Using this scrapbook you can start uploading pictures of your baby from day one and keep them secure with this app. You can also keep your pictures private in case you do not want to share them with anyone.
You can download and install the app using the link given at the end of this article. First time you open this app, you will be asked to sign in using your Facebook account or an email address. The screenshot below shows the login screen of this app.
Let’s see how to create a baby scrapbook using this app:
Once you are signed in, you will get the option to create a new baby account or connect with an existing account. Existing account option can be used if there is already a account that has been created for your baby by another family member.
Click on create a new baby account.
Add a name for your baby, date of birth of the baby, select the gender of the baby, your relationship with the baby, and location. Then click on create to create this new baby account. You can also upload a profile picture for this baby account, but this is optional.
After this you get to create a new memory for your baby by uploading a photo or video of your baby. You can choose insert photo option to choose photos from your phone album or you can choose the camera option to click on and upload.
At the bottom of this screen you also get an option to set the privacy for this memory that you are creating. You can either make your photos private or can be shared with family & friends.
Once you have uploaded the photos, you can go ahead and post them to the app. If you have not added a name to your album the app will automatically name it. Using the date of birth and meta data from the photo that you have uploaded, the name of the album will be like 3Y 3M 20D, meaning this photo was taken when the child was 3 years, 3 months and 20 days.
You can invite your friends and family to see your baby album by creating a link which can be shared using Facebook, email, Whats app, etc. Even if your friends and family don’t have the app they will still be able to view the pictures easily with out signing in.
You also get to see what others are posting and can follow users you like. Apart from this there is a notification tab where you will receive various notifications like comments made, photos liked by someone, etc.
When you click on your child’s name, the profile page will open up. On the profile page you will be able to see how many followers you have, albums you have created, etc. You can also set reminders for vaccinations of the child. The above screenshot shows the profile page.

The good part about this app is that all the photos and videos of your baby will be organized automatically as soon as you upload them according to their age. So if you feel like looking at a photo when your baby was 2 years old, it will be pretty easy to find. I liked the app as it lets you upload photos easily and sharing the photos doesn’t require other people to have this app either.
