Chatbooks Family Photo Books app reviews

  • Failure to launch 4/5

    By Lizzyrae78
    I have tried over 15 times to make a yearbook… I’ll get halfway through March and the Apple crash making me start all over from the beginning. Also it’s very difficult to create a yearbook from the beginning with a grid of four photos per page you think you should be able to select this from the beginning… I contacted customer service and they said that’s only an option if you select 120 photos…I did select over 120 photos but then you were only able to create a collage page for any subsequent pictures… So I have 120 pages with one photo each and then I am given a grade selection? Then I have to tap on every square to add an individual picture… It would be way more user-friendly to select all the photos I want from a particular month and have them auto flow into a grid layout
  • I love this app so much. 5/5

    By Sarah Mitchum
    I just wanted to say that. My entire family benefits from Chatbooks on a monthly basis. I am so impressed with the customer service and support, and the frequent updates that keep things going smoothly. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
  • Very buggy + bad customer support 1/5

    By go-lions
    After spending 2 hours creating a book, my photos didn’t upload because of an app design flaw ( you must be logged in for pics to save but there’s no alert). Told customer support team, they couldn’t fix and offered me a $10 coupon which was insulting
  • Love it 5/5

    By AbiLuV07
    I order a book every year for my kids’ birthdays. We all love them.
  • Would highly recommend. 5/5

    By CRob4606
    So easy to use!
  • Horrible book 2/5

    By khechara
    The book that I just received I literally cannot even see the first 5 to 10 pictures at all. They are blurry over pixelated and I can’t believe that this is what was sent out to me.
  • Gets worse and worse 2/5

    By Lexis Calista
    I started using Chatbooks for all the obvious reasons and I still love it for its ability to create books with photos of my kids. BUT every year when I open it up to make my yearly books, the app has updated and it’s harder and harder to use. In the end I have to use the app and the website to get the book just the way I want because the editing features don’t work well on both platforms independently. I’m considering finding another photo service because it’s so frustrating.
  • The best photo books 5/5

    By Steeenps
    The only way I have been able to keep up with photo books is through Chatbooks! The app is pretty darn good. I find that the easiest way to keep things organized for your book is to go through the favorites folder on your phone.
  • Poor design flaw 1/5

    By Haile Aire
    I ordered 2 chatbooks for my friends. I titled them Friends Forever, but when I got them they didn’t say that. One said hello little one, and one said 2021. I was very frustrated because I wanted them to say friends Forever and they don’t. This is a problem and I am highly disappointed in your flaw. I expected more for such a high quality business, and part of a good business is giving their customers what they orders which includes titles. I am highly unsatisfied and should be refunded and given new books with the correct words. This also is wasting my time because they were for Christmas, and now my redesign won’t be here for another multiple weeks. Poor design and manufacturing. :(
  • Great! 5/5

    By 5505AshLo
    I love using chatbooks but the prices have gotten expensive since.
  • Freezing 1/5

    By _kmeier
    I have tried 4 times to do the year end book. I get to the month of November and the app freezes and closes. I lose all my progress. Considering how long it takes to go through a year worth of pictures isn’t worth my time to try a fifth time.
  • Chatbooks 5/5

    By ProudPuff
    Good app.
  • Sweet little collection! 5/5

    By RobynJae
    New customer here for one year now. I am so enjoying having these compact, custom, colorful photo booklets on hand as a photo journal of the highlights in my camera roll!! Easy to prep, manageable size (30pics), great quality prints for the price. Love it!
  • Too many glitches 1/5

    By Vanderroest
    After reading quite a few negative reviews regarding issues with this app I was a little apprehensive to try it but had hoped that these problems had been resolved. Unfortunately they have not, and the glitches are still there. It has issues loading photos, loses data, and overall not a great program. I wasted too much time trying to get this to work sadly. Gave up and moving to another program to use for my photo book that works more consistently without the glitches.
  • Love my minis 5/5

    By Peppy's mommy
    I never print my pictures anymore and this is a great way for me to have my pictures.
  • First timer 3/5

    By cfly30595
    Would love the option to use camera roll and FB & not have to use specifically Facebook or camera pictures and free range of both to make albums
  • Does not work 1/5

    By lyndabyrd
    I cannot get it to work correctly. I checked my settings, and I gave the app permission to use photos from my camera roll. They briefly flashed on the screen where you add photos, but then they disappear immediately. I tried using the text to support feature, and that has apparently been disabled. I typed out my question in the text box, and it will not send. The send button is faded out. I have already given my credit card information, and I’m very unhappy. I will ask for a refund of this is not corrected in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Best ever 5/5

    By Amaljo
    thing ever for this busy mom! I can ensure my images are printed and we can always look back on them!
  • Worst app ever, photos do not load 1/5

    By Moxiette
    Tried to create the Year Book, the app took me through all of the 12 months and I selected 360 photos only to find at the end only 90 photos uploaded. The app, nor the website could not tell me which photos did not upload. The ones that did were scattered photos throughout the year so it was impossible to reconcile. A complete waste of time and when contacted support they suggested I start over. No thank you, requested to have my account deleted. Terrible software and user experience. I would give zero stars if I could.
  • Fantastic 5/5

    By Badangz_0806
    Chatbooks is amazing! I don’t have to go to store and print all the pictures that I wanted. It’s price point is reasonable for every picture. Plus it definitely saves me a memory on my phone! With just few customization, you will have a perfect photo book. I will definitely subscribe to it!
  • Love Chatbooks 5/5

    By alyssab2
    I have ordered several Chatbooks and love them all. They are such good quality and it’s nice to have physical copies of photos. My toddler loves looking at the pictures and they have maintained their quality despite his rough handling. One time I received a book that wasn’t perfect quality and they made it right immediately by sending a new copy free of charge. Great company and great customer service. Thank you!
  • Lost shipments and lack of status updates — Christmas has to wait I guess 1/5

    By Lxelxelxe
    I wanted to love this service. The app is easy to use and the quality seems “premium” (it ended up being far from it). Ordered an album on 12/10. It was due to arrive in 12/20 — even got a notification. Got stuck in “label created”. On 12/20 I asked them to reprint and expedite the shipping — now it’s stuck in “printing” with a delivery date projected for next year. I don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes here — and I guess that’s the main issue. I wish it updated the status. Why is the shipment stuck? Why is the printing stuck? There’s a ton of services out there that do this — I guess I’ll stick to one of their competitors from now on. :(
  • Loved it until now 2/5

    By hopsonae
    I have used this app to make books to send to family in the past and loved it. Now I can’t get any pictures to load to make a complete book. It’s a huge disappointment. This app used to be wonderful.
  • Never received 1/5

    By spongbob circle pants
    Haven’t received anything and it’s been 10 days since it said it would be delivered
  • Wedding pictures 5/5

    By travelingJob
    Omg i am so happy with my book. The images where absolutely perfect and everything was night quality and it made it just in time for Christmas. Thank you so much! I will be ordering more books from you in the future
  • Don’t worry about Low Resolution warning! 5/5

    By TammyLooWho
    Just got my first book! Love it! So easy to make and the pics look great! As I was making the book, the app said that several of my photos were low resolution and might not look good, but they all look great!
  • Decent app. Bad service. 1/5

    By jakemurray83
    My order is a week late and the tracking info (provided by chatbooks), says it started in Miami and ended up in Utah. I’m in Fort Lauderdale, 30 mins north of Miami. I messaged support to ask and they said my item didn’t come with tracking. So obviously I asked how I’m being provided tracking info that says it’s in Utah, if it can’t be tracked. They’re response was that SOMETIMES it does come with tracking, but the tracking is incorrect on USPS part. I’ve asked several times to give me the tracking number so I can look into it myself, and they ignore everytime. They told me to wait until 12/31 to ask them to look into it for me. That’s 3 weeks after I ordered, 2 weeks after they said it’d be here, and a week after xmas (it was supposed to be a gift)…before they will even look into it! Wish I could add screenshots of the weird conversation. Anyways…. If you download the app, definetly dont order any of the products. If you do, don’t believe the fake tracking. They will never provide an actual tracking number, and they won’t take 2 seconds to track it for you unless it’s already 2 weeks late! Bad biz.
  • Fabulous 5/5

    By jdcjd1313
    I’ve been using this service to print a book a month for my baby’s first year of life. The quality is great and it’s just so easy!!
  • Shutterfly Step Aside 5/5

    By Aerorider
    Shutterfly definitely has competition with this company. Very easy to use and quick to learn.
  • Too many synching errors! 😡 2/5

    By Tlcn1994
    I had to contact customer service and Rachel was amazing. However, it was aggravating to select images then have a sync error and they had to be deleted. I ordered a second book the same day (12/15/2021, today) and AGAIN with the errors. It doesn’t show you what didn’t upload and with 33,000 photos on my phone it’s not easy to remember or figure out. Disappointed in my experience today.
  • Best customer service ever!! 5/5

    By dlh670
    I love this app because my kids still love to look at picture books and I don’t print pictures out anymore. When the app disconnected from my Instagram I received a personal text fixing it within a few minutes. This is really the best customer service I’ve ever experienced!!
  • So easy and rewarding… 5/5

    By Jason Surya
    The short time it takes to get this done pays off endless residuals for the rest of your life. Hard copy pictures are teetering as an item of the past that should never be forgotten.
  • Really difficult making books this year! 1/5

    By Jebarnee
    I make Chatbooks for my kids every year. This year the app has closed unexpectedly multiple times losing all the progress I’ve made each time.
  • Amazing company and great customer service 5/5

    By omj1996
    Love this app and company! Have quite a collection of Chatbooks started! I recently was helped by Jennifer O from their support team and wow, she was so kind and easy to talk to! Thank you Chatbooks!
  • Confused 4/5

    By Terry in Rhode Island
    I had started to create a book…it disappeared. When I started all over again, the options I’d wanted were gone. As I started from scratch I ended up with a book that is much different than I’d intended. I’ll try Chatbooks one more time to see if the problem was me…or the rushed Christmas deadline or the fault of Chatbooks app. Hoping for a much better experience next time.
  • Great service 5/5

    By tlham1122
    Customer service was super easy
  • Recommended by Instagram Blogger “Whereyourheartis now” Nicole Leffew 5/5

    By Barb Gillespie
    Nicole has purchased books on your website and shared them with her followers by including the link to download your app! I would not have made today’s purchase without the promotion from Nicole! I honestly hadn’t heard of your company prior to her suggestion! Please reach out to this loyal blogger for promoting your sales! I’m anxious to receive my photo book! The app was definitely easy to use! With regards, Barb Sherman, Zanesville, Ohio a follower of “Whereyourheartisnow”
  • It crashes 2/5

    By hannahB_16
    I’m leaving this review out of major frustration. It crashed on me 3x. Each time after spending about 45 minutes picking on the photos I wanted for the album. Such a waste of time.
  • Perfect little monthly books 5/5

    By arshort
    I signed up for monthly 8x8 books for my new twin babies. The quality is beautiful and it’s so easy to select the images you want and have it printed. Love this app!
  • Recent updates have been very buggy 3/5

    By tempglitter
    I love the product and affordability of the books. I love that the app reminds me to make them and shipping is typically very quick. However, making my last 3 month books has been quite a trial. I often have the app select photos for me, but do make some edits. This process has been a nightmare. I will go though and select my photos and go to put the final touches on the book and it hasn’t saved. After several attempts, I finally deleted the pictures I didn’t want, made sure it saved, and then closed the app and reopened to add the photos I did want. I have also had problems with 2-photo displays where the second photo does not load. I have tried both on WiFi and on data. I have deleted the app and reinstalled. I have ensured I have the most current version. These glitches have taken what used to be a couple minute process once a month and made it take several hours at times to edit my month books. Pretty disappointed.
  • Quick, easy, inexpensive 4/5

    By HaveAngels
    Pro: I was able to put a book together & order it in less than 15 minutes. Con: You’re unable to add text to any of the pages.
  • Just before Christmas ugh 5/5

    By Yostie82
    I was just about finished with a book I was ordering for my aunt and mom when all of a sudden the app logged me out. It will not allow me to log in. Convenient since I have until midnight to get free shipping she use a 20% off coupon. Chatbooks get it together and help a stressed momma out!!! Update: I was able to log in the next day. The person I chatted with honored the 20% off coupon. Thanks!!
  • So many issues 2/5

    By aelisabetha
    I’ve been trying to make a hardcover photo book as a gift for the last 2 hours and each time photos fail to upload or sync correctly or the app will just cut out entirely in the middle of me scrolling through thousands of photos which ends up in me losing the ones I had chosen, there’s constant errors it’s ridiculous. Their month books are good but for anything more expensive than that I’ll be taking my wallet elsewhere, so many bugs with the app it’s ridiculous
  • Great! Excerpt lay flat books 4/5

    By chatbooks review - good
    I have been ordering from chatbooks for a year and a half. I absolutely LOVE the mini books!!!! They are such a great keepsake and they make amazing gifts. However… I tried to make a lay flat book of my wedding photos and I was extremely disappointed. I tried on a desktop, iPad, and phone. I had significant difficulties on all of these platforms. On the tablet and phone, I wasn’t able to select the various photo layouts because there was another button right on top of it! On the desktop, it was even worse. They should also have more layout options for the lay flat book. Overall, I will continue to recommend chatbooks to all of my friends and family for the mini books only! Hopefully they will improve their lay flat book layouts and programming to make it more customizable in the future.
  • Highly recommend this service! 5/5

    By Laura Ann Photography
    Great professional job, I would use again in future!
  • Do you proofread before printing? 2/5

    By Twiggyjas
    Most of the pictures were cut of face missing on more then half the book
  • Chatbooks 3/5

    By Montyfamof6
    Love the product!! Frustrated with the app syncing my pictures and making the books. If the app would stop crashing, I would give it a 5 star review bc I truly love the books!!
  • Christmas gifts 5/5

    By - IYI O N S T E R
    I was able to quickly put together a photo book for my brother and sisters of our family cruise. Got free shipping and the books are on their way to their homes for Christmas!
  • Love the app and the albums…the crashing, not so much 4/5

    By chatbooks-are-pretty-sweet
    Love the convenience of making small photo albums from a simple app on my phone using the gazillion of pics I take of my family. The customer service is also excellent and quick. I’m generally super happy with the albums when they are delivered. High-quality paper and can survive a teething toddler chewing on them. My only reason to take one star away is because the app crashes more often than I’d like, and it can be frustrating when I’m in the middle of making an album and have to start over. Not a huge deal to me though, so I’ll still be a Chatbooks customer for a long time.
