To help you make the most of Blinkbuggy and quickly start capturing all the amazing things happening in your lives, check out this brief video overview of the Blinkbuggy site and see below for a few "starter" tips.Starter Tips
Tip 1: ADD
The easiest way to get started is simply to ADD memories to your Blinkbuggy account. Adding memories is easy: You can either click on ADD MEMORY in the main navigation or click on the first box in the Grid with the plus sign. Then select the type of memory (Quote, Note or Photo) you'd like to add.
Tip 2: Fill out the details!
As you're adding your memories, you will also be able to add details such as the date, description, tags, privacy level, etc (see screenshot below). Click DONE when you're ready and you will soon see your memories in your grid.Keep in mind, your Grid is arranged from newest to oldest by default so your new memories will be placed in their relevant chronological place. You can easily change this by using the sort drop down at the top left of the grid to sort in a different way (for example, to see the memories you most recently added, select "Date added (Newest first) from the sort menu).
Tip 3: Share your memories...(but only if you want to!) or just continue to add more memories.
If you do decide to share your Blinkbuggy memories with friends and family, you can easily do so by clicking on the share icon located at the bottom right of each memory (see screen shot below). Keep in mind though, that memories you wish to share must be either Public or set to Custom privacy. (see Share memory screen shot)
You can share multiple memories simultaneously by selecting them with the check box at the top right of each memory you'd like to share. Then click "Share" on the global action bar just above the top right of the grid.
We hope that the information above helps you get started on your Blinkbuggy journey. Happy memories!back to top
Yes! The iPhone app is now available on the App Store. You can download it by clicking on the button below or by searching for Blinkbuggy in the app store.
The Android app is under development and we’ll be sending out updates as we get closer to launch so stay tuned! Until then, Android users can use our Mobile optimized site on their mobile browser. Another easy way to synch photos from an Android device is to use the Instant Upload option with G+. This will automatically upload your photos taken with your Android device to a private folder on your G+ photos page. When you are on Blinkbuggy, you can import directly from G+ by clicking on ADD MEMORY > Photos > Import > Google+. When the Google+ import window loads, you can select the Instant Upload from your album drop down and quickly and easily select the best of the best for your Blinkbuggy page. It doesn't replace the need for an Android app, but, hopefully, it helps ease the pain.back to top

No. We approach this with the view that the memories we capture are all part of one big story with several key characters - our children, parents, grandparents, friends. etc. - and we don’t want to separate the characters and lose the richness from their interconnectedness. Rather than multiple accounts, we think a better way to manage memories for multiple children on Blinkbuggy is to have one account and use the built-in tagging system to associate memories with specific children or people. For more, check out our blog post hereback to top
Yes! Our philosophy is that the memories you put up on Blinkbuggy are yours and Blinkbuggy was designed with that in mind. We added the ability for you to export all of your memories to a file on your computer at any time. This is great for backups and making sure that you have another layer of control and protection to keep your memories safe. You’ll find the “Export” function on the bottom of your “Account Settings” page. For more detail, see our blog post hereback to top
Finding friends who are already members of Blinkbuggy or inviting friends to join Blinkbuggy so you can share is easy!

Say it ain't so! Ohh, the humanity!
Our weak attempt at humor is really just a cover up of our sadness. It pains us to see you leave but, if that's really what you want, we will of course respect your decision (but we don't have to like it!). Currently, Blinkbuggy members cannot delete their own accounts (although we will be adding this capability in the near future). In the mean time, if you would like to delete your account, simply send your first name, last name and the email address associated with your account to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Delete Account". We will then delete it for you. To help us improve the site, any information you could include on why you decided to leave Blinkbuggy would be greatly appreciated. With this information, perhaps we can even get you to come back soon!back to top
