In continuation of Freebie Friday, we have a great giveaway for our readers!
So what do we have in store? How about a Ceiva frame with a one years subscription that you can give to mom. This digital frame will allow you to share those tender moments with mom or maybe even the occasional joke. She can get her local weather forecast or news and even a personalized card from you!
Why does this frame make for a great gift? This frame allows for quick, easy and convenient ways to share pictures with loved ones. How easy is it? Well you can send a picture message, email or even use the Ceiva app on your iPhone. Another benefit to this frame, you can also send custom greeting cards and set up for weather, news or history facts.
Lets give you the nitty gritty on how this frame and app work. One of the best aspects of this frame is the simplicity to send pictures from your cell phone, email and the iPhone application. I would have to say that I prefer the iPhone app. I can take a picture, connect to the Ceiva app, and send it to the frame. The frame notifies you when you have a new picture ready to be added to your collection. The name inscribed on the frame lights up in blue. You grab the remote that comes with the frame, hit menu and select connect. 2 minutes later, your pictures are on the frame.
Through the settings, you will be able to control the transitions from fade to black, dissolve and cut. You will be able to control which pictures are on display and you have a variety of ways to connect your frame to receive pictures from loved ones. You can use an Ethernet cable, wireless modem or an old fashioned phone line.
Another bonus to this frame is the additional memory card slot. This allows you to transfer your images right on to the card and run to your local photo print shop to get a full portrait for the fire place. You will also be able to store the images online via the Ceiva website, which allows for unlimited photo storage with your paid subscription.
One of the very few issues that I found with this frame was the pixelation of pictures taken from my iPhone. When I look at the images on the frame they almost look grainy. But with a few adjustments in the settings, most of this was fixed. You can crop the image to fit the screen, stretch among a few other options.
The biggest complaint has been with the price of the frame. Me personally, I think the price is worth it. You can have an unlimited storage space online for all your images. The days of having your pictures spread out on 3 different computers and however many digital cameras you may have are over. Plus you can have news and weather sent straight to your frame. How cool is that? You wake up to your coffee pot in the morning and look at the frame to see how you should dress for the day.
Now that you know why you should have one,Â let meÂ give you the details on how you can win a frame for yourself or maybe for your mom. We want to hear your moms biggest cellphone faux pas. Did she call you at the wrong moment? Maybe she’s learning how to text and hasn’t realized what some of the short hand messages really mean…LOL! Whatever the story may be, share with us in the comments below and we will pick a winner Monday morning. You will be contacted by email and the frame will be sent to your address, or maybe moms house.Â Good luck everybody!
