January, 31th, 2013 Why do kids wake up early?


Hi, this is Gokaichi. I've been spending busy days lately. I tend to go to bed after twelve o'clock midnight. In such a case, I wish to wake up in the morning after seven o'clock, but in contrast to my modest wish, I hear my son's voice "Daddy! Let's play with choo choo trains!" at five o'clock. Yes, my son wakes up at sunrise. It's a kind of a moment you realize humans are animal beings too.


He plays in the morning like this. So, most of my photos in my son's album are taken in the morning. It means I only spend time with my son in the morning on weekdays. Would I be a typical father in Japan? I don't know. See you!

January 28th, 2013 Winter in Tokyo



Hi everyone. How is the weather where you live? In Tokyo, we had snow 2 weeks ago.



It was very cold outside, but my heart gradually got warm as I turned pages of my albums in million moments. The new snow-white pages looked pretty good too, adding seasonal taste to my album.

January, 24th, 2013 Quick guide to million moments: Part 3 Changing the time-span setting of an album


Hi, this is Gokaichi. This is the last post of quick guide to million moments.

You can change the way you view your album by changing its settings. The settings of an album can be changed by tapping settings menu after long-pressing the album or by dragging a page upward to show menu on the bottom. This time, I'd like to share with you how you can change "time span" of an album. By changing the setting to either "1 day per page" or "1 week per page", you will be able to look back your album quickly because the app will allocate only one day or one week per page. The app will randomly pick which picture to fit into the page. I like to use the function to look back my child's growth. Here is how you do it.

1. Long-press the book you wish to change the setting


2. Tap "Book time span"


3. Select the time span


4. Go back to the previous page, and save the settings


Let's see how it looks now.

My recommendation is to change "Picture sort order" along with the time span. By changing the sort order to "Oldest first", you can enjoy watching how your child gradually gets bigger. Please give it a try. See you!

January 17th, 2013 Escape! (part 1)



Hi everyone, it’s Aki. Sadly, my winter holidays are over, and I still have hard time adjusting to my usual life. I can’t resist dreaming of escaping from reality to be free from all the constraints.


If you are with me, I’d like to share with you what I love to do to let my mind fly into the world of imagination. Very simple, I just open my “Travel” album.





So here I am, back in Macau six years ago.


It’s so much fun to create a travel-themed album and look back the pictures when you feel like escaping from reality.


Bon Voyage!

January, 10th, 2013 Quick guide to million moments: Part 1 Let's create an album


Happy new year to you all! This is Gokaichi.

Today, I'd like to write to those of you who have recently started using million moments, since there are a lot of new users too. I'd like to start from how to create an new album.

When you first launch million moments, the only album you see beside the tutorial boooks is one named "ALL". With million moments, you can create a new album of your own by attaching labels to your favorite photos. So here is how it goes.

1. Open the album and find a photo you wish to add to your new album.


2. Drag the page down and show labels on the top.


3. Tap a label, and then attach it to a photo by tapping the photo.


4. Go back to book shelf, and you see a new album with the photo.


The name you give to a label becomes the name of your new album. You can give the name from the "Settings" you see on the right hand side of the menu.

On my next post, I'd like to write on how you can share your favorite page of an album with your friends. See you!

I’d like to thank you all for downloading our million moments app which we have released last year, and for reading this blog.


The year 2012 was a memorable year for me, but I’d like to turn year 2013 into an even more fantastic year for not only me but also for million moments users. I can’t share with you the details yet, but we are planning to add dramatic improvements to the app this year. I hope you will like them.



My personal resolution for the new year is to improve my skills in photography and writing. What’s yours?
