We’ve got two more designs for you this month. It’s been a while since we’ve created some new holiday themes. We’re happy to unveil “Happy Holidays” as well as our third Christmas design with a fun new Santa scene.
We recently asked our fans on Facebook to offer some suggestions for new designs they’d like to see. Basic patterns seemed to be a popular theme, so we’ve created three new designs you can choose from: Dots, Stripes and Diamonds.
These are similar to the recent Toys design, in that you can choose from 7 different color schemes for each theme! Stripes and Diamonds are free to all users. The Dots design is for Premium members only.
As a parent I find it a challenge to have the camera “ready” for those candid moments that I want to remember the most. Sure I can ask “Izzy, wait here while Dad goes to grab the camera and then would you please put your hat on again, stand on one foot, and grin at me sideways?”. Not to mention those absolutely adorable moments when they say things like “Dad, why do boys have hair on their face…. Tell me the truth Dad…” as only a three year old can. I like to think that my memory is the same as it was 10 years ago, but as I get busy I tend to forget to post these to my TotSite until I frantically try to remember a week later.
The only thing that has saved me is the fact that I typically have my phone with which, thank you to technology, now doubles as a camera, camcorder and a Browser.
You can log in to your TotSite now and add Journals and Photos from your mobile device, but to be honest it’s not as easy as it should be. That is why we would like to announce TotSites Mobile!
The mobile version of TotSites is streamlined to let you get right to the point to add photos or that quick journal entry recording that funny phrase or moment you just experienced with your family. If you go to the log in page on TotSites it will automatically detect if you’re using one of the popular mobile devices and redirect you to here: Totsites Mobile Login . Simply use your normal username and password and you are set.
iPhone Users: There is one small problem for iPhone users (I am one of them so I know exactly how annoying this can be). Apple does not allow you to upload files from your device through a Browser. This is not a limitation of TotSites but instead a limitation of the phone itself. We are looking into creating a full blown iPhone application to be released in the App Store. If you happen to know any iPhone App developers please have them contact us! We are looking to have something ready in the near future. You can still upload Journals, Fun Facts, and Growth Charts with the existing TotSites Mobile site!
Everyone Else: Your Android, Windows 7, Blackberry, Palm etc.. will work exactly as you would expect with TotSites mobile.
This is a new feature that we plan on tweaking often. If you have particular features or comments please let us know!
We’ve fulfilled another design request from our members. The new Tooth Fairy theme is now available to all TotSites users!
We just added a few new features you might want to know about!
1) Facebook comments and TotSites photos – When you post your photos to Facebook from TotSites you can now optionally have all Facebook comments copied back to your TotSite automatically! This way when friends and family leave a cute comment on your Facebook photo it will be stored in your TotSites Keepsake.
2) Linked Accounts – For those parents that prefer to have an independent site for each child, you can now link your TotSites accounts. Once they are linked you can easily switch between both sites while you making updates. You can also add photos from any linked account into your Journals and site homepage.
3) Allow Friends and Family to order Photo Prints and Memory Books – Does Grandma ask you for new pictures to hang on the wall on a regular basis? You now have the option to let her order photo prints and memory books directly from your site! To set your preferences just log in to your site and click on the Sharing tab.
4) New Theme: Dinosaur – Looking for a fun theme? Check out the new Dinosaur design, just released.
Wander back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the earth! A variety of different colors and creatures make up this fun prehistoric theme.
If you are not already, now is the time to become a Fan of TotSites on Facebook. We will be giving away a year TotSites Premium Plus account to a lucky Facebook fan on the 8th! We occasionally post special coupons and sneak peaks to upcoming features on our Fan page so what are you waiting for?
It’s time for another fun TotSites theme. Some of you wanted to go to the Circus, so we’ve created the Big Top design. Enjoy trapeze artists, acrobats, clowns and animals in your very own three ring circus!
This new theme is available to our Premium members.
Storage space for all Premium accounts was just increased by 50%!
One of the more requested features from TotSites members is to be able to share more… Now that it’s much easier to snap a photo or video from your phone we all have the opportunity to capture those adorable moments. We don’t want to limit your ability to share and record those memories so we are working on ways to continually increase your storage space.
We have two new designs for you!
These follow the same theme, which we call “Mommy’s Day Out.” Though we did just celebrate Mother’s Day, we all know that moms everywhere can always use a little extra time to themselves, or simply to treat themselves! These two designs depict moms out having a little fun. The first design is for expecting mothers. You can choose from one of three mommies featured in this design, which is free to all users.
Our second design is for Premium members only. It shows new moms who have their shopping buddy in tow, and again, you can choose from three different moms to feature.
We hope you enjoy Mommy’s Day Out!
We’ve just released our latest Premium design. Simply titled Scenery, this classy brown and gold layout lets you choose from four different outdoor scenes. Whether you want to wander through the orchard, visit a tropical isle, or escape to the mountains, the scenery design puts you in the golden glow of the great outdoors.
More new designs are on the way. Stay tuned!
