What is MemoryMiner for Mac

MemoryMiner is the award-winning Digital Storytelling application used to discover the threads connecting peoples' lives across time and place. It lets you zero in on the stories depicted in your photos by linking them to each other based on people, places and time. Use it to annotate photos in order to specify who is in the picture, where the picture was taken, when it was taken, and most importantly, what's going on.

Using the built-in iSight camera, record audio or video to tell your side of the story. Drag and drop audio, video, URL's, etc as attachments onto your photos to add depth and context. Each photo thus becomes a frame in an endless storyboard which can be browsed by periods in a person's life, where people overlap, by place, by time, or any combination. Create self-contained library documents to share with other MemoryMiner users, or export beautiful interactive Web sites which can be automatically uploaded to your .Mac account or other Web server. MemoryMiner also works beautifully with PulpMotion in order to create stunning video presentations suitable for web, DVD or iPod/iPhone. MemoryMiner lets you recreate the experience of telling stories around a photo album, even when all the people involved can't be in the same place at the same time.

good idea, really, but that´s about it. so awkward to use, nothing really works and it crashes a lot. no fun at all.

This is a great piece of software with unique features. This is the way iPhoto should have been and Apple should have bought Memoryminer and incorporated it. The possibilities to create stories, timeline, configure photos etc. are impressive. Because of a unique combination of hardware, touchpad and two mice, there was an issue and the developer John patiently worked with and resolved the issue. He was very responsive and resourceful. Highly recommended. I am sure the software will further develop.

I've been waiting for an update to MemoryMiner for quite a while. The app used to be a great innovation when tagging photos of people. Then came iPhoto 09 and "Names," which made MemoryMiner somewhat obsolete, at least in my world. I wrote to the developer and suggested that MemoryMiner 2 should have an option to "only import and sync with tagged photos from iPhoto that feature peoples' names." That MemoryMiner 2 should go hand-in-hand with iPhoto 09, i.e. when changing a tag in MemoryMiner 2 it should be reflected in iPhoto 09. When deleting an image in MemoryMiner 2, it should be deleted in iPhoto 09 or at least mark in MemoryMiner 2 photos that have been deleted in iPhoto 09 after they were imported into MemoryMiner 2. At the moment, MemoryMiner 2 does not sync photos back, i.e. some of my thumbnails in MemoryMiner 2 are linked to missing photos… and you won't see them until you click on one. Stupid. There's been a lot of work going into MemoryMiner 2… gimmicks and features that look nice but don't add to the ease of use in your every day work. My time is limited. I cannot do a whole bunch of people tagging again. I've gone the iPhoto way… and that's it. If MemoryMiner 2 doesn't play game, then good bye. It was nice until it lasted. I won't upgrade.

Downloaded the demo a few days ago and the price was $29. After evaluating it I decided that it was worth the price and tried to purchase, but now it's $49. That's too much. This program is a good idea, but it needs work. It is NOT intuitive, but rather difficult to understand.

I can think of several uses beyond the ones presented in the demo movies. Seems like it could be very useful in compiling, tracking, and presenting photos and data from environmental investigations as well. I'm interested in giving it a try.

Such an interesting idea for an app. the videocast makes it look really good for photo management (I'm using shoebox similarly at present). Curious about what others don't like...

Wow. Neat app. It's not just for family albums or genealogy. You could use it for clubs with members and a directory of info on them, high school reunion websites. My mind is racing with possibilities. I saw a MacBreak interview with John Fox and he said there was also a feature to allow you to "send" a photo to someone to get more details and they could edit it and "send" it back. I don't see that mentioned in the features. Whatever! I'm buying it! The only downside I see is the time I will want to spend playing with it when I should be doing other things.

Sweet program. It works well with iPhoto and has a lot of neat features! The only suggestion I would have for the developer is to enlarge the Places Google map so you can actually see more of the map at once. The zoomed out box in the lower right corner is way too large and covers up too much of the actual Google map. Other than that minor inconvenience, this app is very sweet!

I can't believe everything this program can do. If you haven't watched the videos on their website, definitely check it out! I'm thoroughly impressed! I could see spending days, weeks and months using this program to highlight my family's history. And their web publishing feature is extremely sweet! Well done guys! Keep adding features to this program!

Wow, very cool indeed. Great introductory video--shows nicely what the program can do. My only concern is whether I will have time to catalog all of my photos in this way. It sure would add to their usefulness though! I don't think I will buy it today, but perhaps after I scan in more older photos. Thanks for highlighting it on the MacUpdate promo!

I'd like to contradict and raise the rating of this app... I actually find it very innovative and great way to collect data and photos and associate them with people. Check out this video: http://memoryminer.com/software/video.html It's a great demonstration of how to make the most of this app.
