Vimily is a new app which is available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad which is designed to record by video, audio, and photo your family’s life stories, by using your iPhone (or other device), as well as being used as an interview tool.
Vimily’s official free app is the easiest way to film your family interviews, and continually update their life stories with photographs and family videos.
Available in both free and paid editions – you get more features in the paid one obviously.
