All of these activities seem extremely fun, and one way to forever remember these memories is through snapping photos. However, there is a downside – and that is having to delete older memories to make space on your phone.
Introducing the Splento App, a digital photo album where you can save all of your photos – without having to worry about deleting anything! The Splento App runs in the cloud, meaning that everything is online, safe, and backed up. Occasionally, people ask us about privacy and security – well, at Splento, privacy is our top priority.
When you sign up to the Splento App, you are in total control of who can see what – and whether you wish to share any photos with anyone else.
When visiting one of these places in the North West of England, all the pictures that you and your friends or family take can be stored together, in one album. You can then share it with others, if you wish. For example, whoever creates an album of the Treasure Hunt in Chester can share it with the others who were there, and allow them to upload their photos too. This means that you have one secure location for you all to share your photos of the day.
No more multiple texts on messenger apps are needed to share each photo with each friend. One location, one shared link, and simply lots of fun.
