Hi Product Hunters, Since the birth of our daughter my wife and I have taken thousands of photos of our family, all of which have been sitting on a hard drive unseen. Dropbox was too complicated for grandparents, Google too messy... I needed something that was straight-forward and one that I could control. That's how Waddle was born. This app is meant to deliver the joy of sharing photos on places like Instagram, but without the oversight of the Big Brother. Your photos and videos are only seeing by the people you specifically allow to see them, and no one else. Since testing this with my family, we've shared hundreds of great memories, so much so that even great-grandparents visit the app twice a day. They love it, and whenever something doesn't work, I can just fix it for them. Grandparents just get a simple URL from me to visit, and accounts/passwords is all managed by me. The app is a work in progress, but if you have similar needs, I would love to get your feedback and make something that helps not just my family, but a broader community. p.s. There is no iPhone/Android app yet. It's all web based and optimized to work well in the browser. We just welcomed our second daughter, so both apps will be available in the fall once I start sleeping again :)

Pros: Great for sharing daily special moments with different sets of grandparents overseas who are now all addicted to our daily updates. Also perfect for keeping and accessing a subset of only the photos I want, saves from sorting thru the other millions of photos. I figure the albums would be perfect to just hand over to my little girls when they grow up. Cons: May cause whining grandparents when you miss a day's update ^^;;

Excited to check it out tonight with the kids after their first day of school!

@adamslieb Thanks Adam. Let me know how it goes. Email in the sidebar once you login :) We had our first day of school today too. I then mistaken a tired toddler for a super-excited toddler, and was paying for it during nap time. Oops!

@kirillzubovsky I saw you this morning, you looked half asleep!

@adamslieb Ha, now that you mentioned it, I remember. This was before breakfast or coffee. I was probably 90% asleep.
