      So simple. Another example of an "invisible" UI, similar to Super.cc and Planleaf where the interface between the user and product is cc'ing an email address.

      This is really cool. I've had my students doing a "class exercise" to design a photo sharing app for parents.

      I was trying to explain that not everything had to be a dedicated app - it could work on top of other things. Will definitely share with them.

      Thanks @rrhoover and @ellenchisa!

      I created Kidpost with @khoi and Mike Dirolf (not on PH yet). If anyone has questions, fire away!

      I've got kids and this is great. I love these apps that re-map our existing behavior (e.g. social sharing) into a more efficient, more relevant process (receiving personalised content) without requiring a new account, a new app, a new network.

      What a great idea. No more heavy lifting to let my parents see and enjoy the kid pics I post everyday to various platforms. Pretty genius! Love the simplicity.

      Everybody, thanks for the kind words! @capndesign and I are very flattered. For folks who noted the fact that Kidpost is invisible, builds on existing habits and platforms etc.—that's especially gratifying because we worked hard to make it as seamless as possible. We know it's hard for parents especially to remember to post to a new, separate photo sharing network; they're too busy raising kids to manage more tech overhead. Anyway I hope everyone gives it a try!

      Would be cool to see an SMS, or even snail mail integration! :)

      Or even an integration with Whatsapp. Apparently it is a big driver of shares: http://digiday.com/publishers/pu...

      @GeoffreyWeg It’d be a lot of fun to mail photos to family and friends, but that’s waaaay out of scope for a beta launch. ;)

      @ayeshaahmad That’s a great idea. We want to focus on product feedback during the beta period, but we’ll start adding new services soon after. Whatsapp is definitely one we’ll consider.

      This is so great I almost wish it had a better name.

      This is fantastic. Exactly what I've been looking for for my Dad. Also, I can tie the hashtag to a Zapier recipe and store all of these to Dropbox, etc.
