This app is a BLESSING! To be able to stay in touch with your loved ones and not worry about running out of stamps or amazing honestly. I've sent out a couple letters using this app & the person has received them without any problems. I was surprised that they actually sent out my letters! I love the tracker that way I know when it got to the facility. No complaints.

Hands down the absolute best app for keeping in touch with incarcerated loved ones! Easy to use, totally free service that keeps you connected to the ones you cant be with. Even if you decide to make a purchase, which is not at all required to use the basic services, the options are definitely affordable and benefit everyone. I'm so thankful for this app!!

This app is great if you have a loved on in jail, there is many fun activities sheet, coloring pages & more. I love using this app, I can just pull out my phone & write a letter or post card from my phone instead of writing it out by hand. I like this app

I LOVE this app and when I was in Loudon Co jail, I told all my fellow inmates abt it. It was awesome seeing pple tht dont normally get mail start to get mail bc of the ameelio app. It truly makes a huge difference in your day behind bars when you get mail and it boosts your confidence knowing the world may keep on spinning without you but that there is at least someone tht notices your absence and misses you. I HIGHLY recommend this app for your incarcerated loved ones

This app is fantastic. It allows me to communicate with an incarcerated loved one so effectively and the customer support has been great the one time I needed it. This takes away my inability to get to buy stamps and mail things on my own. All of the new options for photo cards and other things are great too. I love this app so much, thank you

Love this app! Easy to use and extremely helpful to get photo cards sent to your loved one. Most jails changed their letter policy and inmates can only get postcards but this app lets me send photos in the form of a postcard so its perfect!

Ameelio is a wonderful app that is truly beneficial to anyone who has a LO incarcerated. You can send photo cards, letters, activity booklets, prison recipes and more for free. I wouldn't think to find and send recipes that he could actually make while incarcerated and they have recipe booklets all ready you just need to choose them, they have self help booklets, parenting from prison etc, things that are truly helpful to the people that recieve them and I'm so grateful to have found this app.

Ameelio's video calling platform is so easy to use — it's going to save us COs an abundance of time, make our work more efficient, and get our prison population reconnected with their families at no cost.
