Lifestyle: Use Neveo to stay in touch with your nearest and dearest

The recent lockdowns, and uncertainty in the world, has made staying in touch with loved ones more important than ever (not to mention more difficult). But, don't worry, that's why Neveo is here. It's a monthly photo booklet to share memories with your nearest and dearest.

So, I tried the Neveo app out for one month. I've made a whole bunch of holiday photo books with my family in the past, it's become a bit of a tradition, so I was pumped to try it out. 

It's pretty easy to use. There's a page to enter in your details and a page to upload photographs with some editing features. You can enter in captions too and invite other people to contribute. Then, at the end of the month, it automatically prints. You just have to make sure you enter in the address of the person you want to send it too. 

It's aimed at keeping you connected with your grandparents and elderly relatives. It's a nice idea. I don't know about you, but I know my grandad isn't keen on the old smart phone so it's an easy way to keep in contact. But, you could really use it to keep in contact with anyone.

I love how you get a proper paper and ink booklet. It feels like there's a lot more thought and effort put into it than just sending a quick WhatsApp message. I know a fair few people who've stopped using instant messaging because it's been messing with their mental health. So, if you're fed up with the last seen status, this could be a great way to stay in contact. 

Maybe things like this are the way forward, past the social media burnout most of us seem to be feeling. It's a way for our devices to work with older methods of staying in touch. 

With Neveo, you can upload your photographs throughout the month. So, whenever a fun moment happens, you can take a snap, upload it and continue with your day. It makes for an authentic experience. You're focusing less on putting together the most perfect photos, like you'd probably do if you made it at the end of the month. You record funny moments, instead, that mean something. At one point, we put a picture in there of my dad's wallet that he'd left it in the washing machine. So, it was all about creating memories. 

And, you can do that because it's personal. You know it's only going to be seen by people you choose to see it. 

So, there you have it. If you want to try it out for yourself, there's a subscription service. For 50 photos it's £9.99 and for 180 it's £19.99. It's printed with a automatic layout so you don't have to waste time organising it yourself and you can opt out at any time. So, you can just use the app for a special occasion or you can send a journal every month. Get snapping those pictures.
