College Kid's Take on Cram

Having thirty-two photos of myself and a couple of friends at a birthday dinner might be considered excessive. Between the bad angles, selfies, the photos with the birthday boy, and of course, the delicious sirloin and potatoes that I ordered, it seemed I couldn't click that capture button fast enough. Call it narcissism, call it a safeguard against late-life memory loss, or call it a symptom of that endless search for a better profile photo on Facebook; the result is still the same. Forty-eight megabytes of memory taken up in on my phone a two hour span. In layman’s terms that is about eighteen songs worth of memory, gone, devoured in part by that beautiful sirloin, not to mention the multitude of selfies I sent a friend who couldn't be there. In this new age of virality, where any moment of a person’s life can be captured in a photograph and shared instantaneously across a growing multitude of social media platforms, it is almost justified that myself and many of my peers have become something of photo-addicts. This is just how it has become. My friends often joke that if something doesn't have photo proof then it didn't happen. This is absurd of course, but it’s that mentality that pervades my thought-process when I am out for dinner, drinks, or even just having a good hair day. Have to show it or no one will ever know it happened. That means, when something like Cram comes around, it’s hard for someone as photo-oriented as myself, or the friends I have who use it, not to drool and jump for joy. The pure satisfaction that comes with seeing that little notification telling me how much space I just saved on my phone for more photos is equal to the satisfaction of finding that perfect filter adjustment on my latest Instagram. To think that this satisfaction comes with the first three-hundred photos free is simply unbelievable to me. I put those thirty-two photos from my buddy’s birthday dinner into the Cram app, and, at a rate less than two seconds a photo, I was granted with this image on the right: Almost twenty-three megabytes saved. Twenty-three! All that space in exchange for the two minutes I waited for the app to download and the minute it took me to click the photos to use and wait for them to be compressed. All the sudden, I’m patting myself on the back for not throwing another hundred dollars for that 64 gigabyte iPhone and sticking with the 16gb. Thank you, Cram, for giving my selfies more space in my photo album to call home.
