I look up from my dinner prep to see the smiling faces of my two grandsons. No, they are not playing in my living room but frolicking on the beach. My daughter has just uploaded some new pictures to my PhotoSpring digital photo frame so I can see the sandcastles and sunset . Welcome to a new way to enjoy photo sharing and display.
All frame interaction is done with wifi so no need to transfer photos manually from a device via usb port. Invite friends and family to load pictures to your PhotoSpring frame and enjoy a slideshow of fun! I had some initial problems connecting the frame to the internet but a call to customer service quickly had me on the right track.
The touchscreen on the frame is easy to use. I had no problem uploading photos and videos from my phone and laptop. The specs state the battery will last four hours but I ran my slideshow in excess of six hours before it ran out of juice. My family also found the app easy to use. The PhotoSpring frame would make a great addition to any grandparent home.
