Track Your Kids' Growth With iVillage's New (Free!) Loved Mugs Photo App

If your iPhone looks anything like ours, it's more than obvious that A) You're a mom; B) Children have hijacked your phone; or C) You have a rather scary affinity for games that involve "making" cupcakes, smoothies or pizzas, "dressing up" fairies or fashion girls or pretty much anything Sponge-Bob-related.

Well, we've got a new iVillage app just for you, and while adding it to your iPhone or iTouch may still may make it clear you're a mom, it also may just be your new favorite thing.

Loved Mugs is an easy camera app that allows you to turn photos of your kid (or yourself, your hubby, your dog, whatever, really) into a really cool time-lapse movie. The app includes a custom view-finder, so your subject's face is in the right spot for each shot, and you can even set an alert to remind you it's time to take today's photo.  

If you miss a couple days here and there, you can import photos from your computer or other apps and add them to your timeline. When you're all set to start the movie magic, the app allows you to add music from your iTunes library and it makes it super easy to share your creation via email, Facebook or Twitter.

We're already thinking digital holiday present for the grandparents. Just be sure to include a box of tissues -- yes, there will be tears.

Oh, and did we mention it's free? Download it now and get started on the memory-making.
