You can quickly and easily create a real photo book while on the go using your iPhone and the Keepsy app.

A while back I told you about Keepsy , a Web site (at the time) that allowed you to use your Facebook and Instagram photos to create a personalized calendar. Fast-forward to today and Keepsy has released an iPhone app, allowing its users to create Sets of photos, which can then be turned into physical photo books.

To make a pocket book, as it's referred to by Keepsy, you'll need to download and install the free Keepsy app from the App Store. Create a Keepsy account or log in to your current account and then begin creating a Set of photos. You'll be able to use photos from your Albums, Camera Roll, Photo Stream, or Instagram. Currently absent from the list of photo sources is Facebook, which should be added in a future update.

You'll need to place a minimum of 16 photos into a Set in order for it to be used as a pocket book. Once you have your set of photos selected, you can then create and edit a pocket book. Using just the app on your iPhone you're able to arrange, expand, swap, and edit the overall look and feel. Once you're satisfied with your creation, you can then order it directly in the app. No computer needed.

Pocket books are 7 inches by 5 inches, start at $14.95, and go up from there, depending on the number of photos in the book. With the holidays fast approaching, keep the Keepsy app in mind for personalized gifts that won't put a hurt on your wallet.
