When it come to genius tech things, one of my favorites is the ability to take videos of my kids right from my phone. It really beats lugging around a gigantic camcorder like some sherpa as you try to get every angle of Miss Susie’s debut as the 4th flower in the school play.

So now we all take lots of video!

And then we come home and masterfully edit our videos, weaving in touching music and poignant moments and then upon completion, we send them off to our family and friends so they can marvel at our creative talents and breathtaking children.

Wait – what?!

Oh you don’t do that? Sure a few clips make it on Facebook but most of  your videos are just sitting there. I mean, who has the time to edit masterpieces when you have to keep watching  that 5 year old who says “apparently” every other word. You’re busy!!

Well, there is an app that can help. It’s called OneDay. And it’s FREE. At least for now. I get a little overwhelmed by all the app craziness but this one is cool.

OneDay makes it fun to create short movies of your kid’s life. You pick a topic like…When You Grow Up, Your Favorite Things or Advice For Your Parents and then the app provides 10 questions to ask your child (you can skip any of them).

Once you’re done, the app edits the recordings together, adds music and you have an adorable video to save and easily share with family, friends and on social media.

Here’s one I did with my daughter Dylan and this seriously took less than 5 minutes….

Sweet, right?

These movies take very little effort, time or skill. Hey, my specialty! And the questions really bring out your kid’s creativity and goofiness which you will appreciate a lot more than those videos where they say, “Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi mom! Hi Dad! I’m eating dinner right now. Okay, let me see the video.”

So give it a try and tell me what you think.  You can download the free app here.

(Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iTouch.)
