The Recently App Creates A Monthly Magazine From Your Phone’s Camera Roll

Recently is a mobile-to-magazine app that publishes a personal photo magazine, straight from an iPhone. A true time-saver, in mere seconds Recently creates a collection-worthy magazine printed on luxurious archival Mohawk paper. 

The only app that automates the arduous task of organizing & laying out photos on a phone, Recently preselects the best photos from a camera roll, so the user doesn’t have to. Because really, who has the time and patience to?

Recently has hundreds of quick-pick features to help make collectable photo magazines ten times faster than any other app, saving memories effortlessly. It uses an algorithm to layout the magazines beautifully and simply. No design background or IT experience needed — Recently does all of the work to create each page including adjusting, sizing and using fine-tuned precision to place the photos perfectly. Every 50 page magazine can hold 25, 50, 75, 100, 125 or 150 images, all for the same price. Whether you want a minimalist magazine highlighting one photo per page, or a robust memory-filled magazine, Recently will quickly and efficiently make that happen. 

Beloved by young families frantically trying to capture every milestone moment, Recently also appeals to friends and family separated by time and distance as well as  those looking to display photographs in creative and artistic ways. A fantastic gift for moms, dads, grads, newlyweds and more, a Recently magazine is a thoughtful personalized gift anyone would be delighted to receive. 

“After our daughter was born, I only ever had one hand free. I was constantly taking pictures on my phone with that hand and I wanted them printed in a photo book — but I couldn’t jump on a computer to make one because I didn’t have enough time, or hands! Plus, as a magazine art director, nothing out there looked good enough for me. So we created Recently to make high quality monthly photo magazines with just a few taps on the phone that was already in my hand.” -Elizabeth Valins, Co-Founder of Recently. 

Only found on Recently, every member has their own exclusive shoppable catalog. A private link can be shared with friends and family so they can purchase directly from that member’s magazine collection. 

Recently’s quality and craftsmanship is unparalleled. Every magazine is printed on Mohawk, 100% cotton rag, acid free, uncoated paper using Epson K3 Ultrachrome Archival ink. Needless to say these magazines will not be stashed on a bookshelf collecting dust. They are to be proudly and predominantly displayed (every spine is the same width, so a whole collection looks great!) and double as an interior design element in any space. Regardless of the number of photos, each magazine spine is the same width, keeping your collection looking symmetrical and polished. 

Convenient and accommodating, Recently allows users to choose between a monthly (12 magazines a year) or quarterly (4 magazines a year) membership cycle with absolutely no obligations. Fans of Recently appreciate being able to start and stop at any time, in the app, with no questions asked. 

The days are long but the years are indeed short. In today’s ever changing, go-go-go world, it is wise to  focus on what matters most and allow savvy apps like Recently to save time and do the work for you. Enjoy an ongoing chronology of moments and people in the form of an exquisite magazine that fills your heart and home with happiness.
