When itâ€™s time to take a nice vacation, you know you want to do everything you can to preserve your memories. Rarely anyone uses film cameras anymore, weâ€™ve all gone digital. Fortunately, with the digital age has come the invention of many apps through which you can share your vacation photos.
Whether your vacation takes you on a road trip, a plane or to a special event, youâ€™ll want to instantly save and share your photos with your friends and family with your smartphone or tablet, and you can do that using these apps. You can also look into purchasing a Wi-Fi capable digital camera, if you donâ€™t have a smartphone or tablet with a camera, and still share photos directly to social media.
