Art My Kid Made featured on A-List Mom
"If you throw away your child’s art, you’re clearly a bad mom. If you don’t, you’re on the fast track to your very own Hoarders episode.
For years, mothers everywhere have grappled with this impossible dilemma. But thanks to two new apps, the fight is finally over—and so is the clutter.
ArtKive and Art My Kid Made are both free apps designed to keep your child’s artwork right on your iPhone or iPad. Both apps will store and organize images of your child’s art and even make it super easy to share the best pieces with the little genius’s extensive fan club." -Elina Furman Landauer and Leah Furman, A-List Mom
Art My Kid Made featured on Apps Playground
"The best pictures our two sons have drawn or painted are, in traditional fashion, stuck on the fridge and kitchen cupboards. Meanwhile, a fraying pile of others is gathering dust on a living-room shelf, while even more have gone to the dustbin big black art gallery in the garden.
If only there was a way to digitise this, eh? Actually, there are a few, with iPhone app Art My Kid Made the latest. It’s a free app that taps into separate online storage service Evernote to preserve your children’s artwork for posterity.
The app gets you to enter your children and their ages, then take photos of individual pictures, which are then saved to Evernote. You can also choose to post the images on Facebook and Twitter, as well as the Art My Kid Made blog, which spotlights a different young artist every day.
It’s a nice idea, especially if you already use Evernote. There are other apps available with more of a within-family sharing focus, like FamJam for iPad. But we think Art My Kid Made is well worth a look." -Apps Playground

"Like any parent, I prize the Picasso-caliber works of art my kids create at school and around the house.
Alas, I don't own a warehouse, so I simply don't have room to store all these masterpieces. What am I supposed to do, throw them in the trash? The guilt! The guilt!
Now there's an app for that: Art My Kid Made. (It's available now for iOS and soon for Android.) With it you can take photos of various crafts and drawings to preserve for posterity, and share them via Evernote, Facebook, or Twitter." -Rick Broida, Read the review at C-Net
Art My Kid Made featured on Cool Mom Tech
"...Art My Kid Made on the other hand, is much more social, like a kids' artwork social network. You save and store artwork in the same way--by taking a photo--but can instantly share it over Twitter, Facebook, Evernote and the Art My Kid Made network. What's cute about this app is that you can see other kids' drawings and paintings in a long scroll of pieces that parents throughout the Art My Kid Made network have uploaded; however one huge drawback is that if you don't share it, it doesn't show up on your "fridge." There is also an editing function within the app after you have uploaded artwork that lets you modify, crop, enhance, add stickers, and special effects--but doesn't that defeat the purpose of preserving your kid's original art? There are already plenty of apps that allow kids to draw right into your phone. ..." -Cool Mom Tech

Art My Kid Made Featured on Learning for Life Online

If you’re one of those friends and family, you can use [Art My Kid Made] to help you organize art made by grandchildren, nieces & nephews, cousins, godchildren, children of close friends, students, or any other kids in your life. " -Jennifer K, Learning for Life Online

Art My Kid Made Featured on the Nyack-Piermont Patch
"The platform allows parents to snap photos of their children's artwork and store it digitally. The app houses a stable of bells and whistles, too—parents can share the artwork with friends and family, and post the photos to Facebook and Twitter. Each day, a different kid is featured as "Artist of the Day."
The application began as a contest entry; in April, Patuto submitted his creation to a challenge hosted by the Evernote app. After receiving an honorable mention, he decided to release it to the public. And since, the application has built a following of 150 daily users, and secured major accolades from British newspaper The Guardian." -Kevin Zawacki, Nyack-Piermont Patch

"As they say, "There’s an app for that!" Art My Kid Made is free and allows you to take pictures of your child’s art, save it and display it how you choose. You can even share the works with folks via social media—even if they don’t have the app themselves. You control the privacy settings, so you can share with whomever you like or with no one. The app is available only on i-devices at the moment but will be available on Android this October." -Trae Bodge, The Retail Me Not Insider
