Hey friends! I hope you guys are holding up ok. Quarantine 2020’s been trying to say the least, and I may or may not have cabin fever. I’ve been bouncing back and forth between my place and my parent’s house so I’ve only really seen 2 other people. Thank god for technology though! I don’t know what I would do without it…which brings me to the topic of today’s post: ibi from SanDisk.
If you’re unfamiliar with ibi, you need to change that stat because it’s such an awesome way to keep in touch with your friends and family. Think of it as a smart photo manager that brings your photos, videos and favorite people together all in one place. It’s like a personal cloud that seamlessly organizes your memories through the device’s companion app so you can easily share with your loved ones, even if they don’t have an ibi of their own.
Here’s how it works. You start by connecting your device + app to your home wifi, and then you invite your besties to use your ibi together. Each person gets private storage on your ibi when they join, and you can share all your content together using an app feature called the Inner Circle. Post anything and everything your heart desires and chat directly on the app. Super easy, super convenient, and super fun.
For me, it’s been a great way for my mom and I to stay connected to my cousin (who’s like a sister to me) and her son. Time’s flying by, and I’m bummed I can’t play with him. I feel like I’m missing his childhood, but ibi’s helping me “be there,” at least virtually. She uploads new pics and videos all the time, and it’s the next best thing to physically being there.
As a blogger of 10+ years, it’s no secret that I love social media, but not all moments are meant to be shared publicly. I love that ibi allows me to connect and post content for my inner circle privately, and it’s a great way to stay connected to your closest friends and family during this trying time. Social distancing is hard but necessary, and ibi definitely helps.
