Badges are cute emblems that you can associate with a photo, video, or audio clip. A badge, such as "First Walk", could represent a milestone achieved by your child. Each badge in Kidfolio has suggested text, but you are free to change this to anything that you like!
What types of information does Kidfolio provide for my children?
Kidfolio provides daily information for kids aged 0 to 1, weekly information for ages 1 to 6, and yearly information thereafter. In addition, the Parenting tab in the app suggests groups, photos, and videos that are appropriate for the age range of the currently selected child.
To see more information, use the Up/Down arrow keys on the right side of the Parenting tab. To select another child, press the child selector in the upper left-hand corner of the Parenting tab.

Why does Kidfolio ask for permission to use location information when picking a photo from the library?
When you pick a photo from your library, Kidfolio will try to figure out the date and time that the photo was captured. In order to do this, it uses a library provided by iOS to read the image meta-data. This library prompts for permission to use location services, even if the library is not used to parse location information. If you wish for Kidfolio to auto-detect the creation date and time of your library photos, then you should enable Location Services when prompted. However, if you do not care about this feature, feel free to turn off Location Services for the app. It will continue to function normally without it.
Rest assured that Kidfolio is not collecting or sharing your location or that of your children. If we add location features in the future, we will make it very clear and allow you to opt out.
How do I edit my child's profile photo?
To edit your child's profile photo, you can go to the Folios tab, then press the Edit button in the upper right corner. Scroll down to the child whose photo you want to change and press the row for that child. On the Edit Child screen that appears, tap on the child's photo underneath the paperclip.
When using the Photo Products option after pressing Order on a photo, it says my photos are not high enough resolution for some types of products. How can I produce high enough resolution photos for these product types?
Some photo products require higher resolution photos than others. To produce high resolution photos, follow one or more of these suggestions:
Use a device that takes high resolution photos. For example, the iPhone 4S takes higher resolution photos than the iPhone 4 or 3GS. Older devices may not capture photos in high enough resolution for certain products.
Use the rear camera instead of the front camera, if you have a device with both a front and a rear camera. The rear camera takes photos in higher resolution than the front camera.
Add photos directly from your phone's library or by using the camera in Kidfolio. Other 3rd party photo apps often reduce the size and quality of a photo when they apply effects or other processing.
If you applied special effects to your photo in version 1.0 of kidfolio, it was saved/uploaded in lower resolution than the original photo. This has been fixed in version 1.1 and later so you can try re-uploading the same photo in 1.1 for improved results.
