The best, most precious photographs tell stories, eliciting visceral recollections of the people, places and times that matter to you. MemoryMiner is an extremely clever photo annotation and storytelling application that helps you take the long view, highlighting the connections between peoples' lives across time and place. Like cooking or gardening, MemoryMiner takes some effort, but offers unique rewards for each step you take.

Strum your heart-strings - capture the pictures & stories of your life! - Whether you have 5 relatives or 500; have 500 pictures or 50,000 MemoryMiner is simply priceless for recording the who, what, when, where, why & how of your life... Memory Miner lets you capture, store, sort and organize your pictures, the stories behind your pictures and the context connected to the places you've been. You can tie together pictures to places and people via maps and visualize over time how people and places are connected. If you're into genealogy you can even import family tree data using the standard "GEDCOM" family tree data format and get a head start on building up the people and relationships you're interested in. The application also lets your store multiple images for a person over time (i.e. newborn through senior) so you can see how people change over time as you build the stories of your and your family's/friend's lives. Very, very cool! Memory Miner allows you to annotate pictures by drawing boxes around things of interest in the picture. You can even record an interview (audio or video) with your grandmother (for example) about a particular element in the picture -- awesome tool for getting those backstories about your family that you never heard before. Memory Miner also allows you to export selected portions of your library to the web so you can share them with your friends, even if they aren't Memory Miner users. This feature is really nice if you are documenting a family event, or even a party and you want to share your "highlights" or even a "gag reel" with your friends. I love using this app to capture my kids as they are growing up; I just wish I had had Memory Miner back in the early 90s when my Dad was still around - so many wonderful stories that I would love to have saved!
