Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 23

At the very moment your dog FINALLY is balancing a banana on its nose, your phone camera roll is full. The banana falls, the moment is gone. Boo.

It stinks to lose these special moments when you don’t have enough room on your phone. So, we set out to find the best way for you to have (almost) infinite space.

Eureka! Carousel is a gallery app that connects to Dropbox (which saves your photos on the cloud, so they don’t take up space on your phone). You can delete photos from your camera roll, but still have access to them whenever you want. Sounds almost as magical as a real carousel, right?

It’s easy to set up, then you’re worry free FOREVER!
