Chris Voss at The Chris Voss Show interviewed David Vaskevitch, CEO of Mylio, this week. Here are some of the highlights.

“One thing that makes us different is that we don’t depend on the cloud. You can use the cloud if you want to, but you don’t have to.”

“Another thing that makes us different is the focus on memories. We’re not just focused on… here’s a place you can put all your pictures and get them back. This is about the structure of your life.”

Computer America: Safely and Easily Organize All of Your Photos – VIDEO

Today, the Computer America podcast released their latest episode featuring an interview of Mylio founder and CEO, David Vaskevitch.

We’d been using technology for years to capture photos and other memories, but the sheer volume was overwhelming us. We were losing track. If life is a big picture, then its pixels were scattered all over the place – on our phones, laptops, and any number of objects in boxes in the garage. There had to be a better way. What if we could bring all those pixels back together again? What if we could gather the record of everything that had happened in our lives in one place, and carry it everywhere, on any device?That’s why we’ve built the Mylio photo app – a memory organizer for bringing the story of your life together again, to share with others anytime.

Phandroid: Safely and Easily Organize All of Your Photos – Mylio Review

Today, Sean Riley at Phandroid published a detailed first-hand review of the latest version of Mylio. Here are some highlights:

Mylio is a much more powerful tool than Google Photos… for those who use a dedicated camera (or multiple cameras), Mylio may be the perfect tool for you.

 

Mylio doesn’t have a cloud storage component, rather it creates a “Vault” that is the central repository for your photos wherever you would like it to be. That can be on an external drive, a NAS, your laptop/desktop or a cloud service like Google Drive or Amazon Drive.

 

Having worked with Lightroom as my primary photo/video organization tool for the last few years I really enjoyed how much more flexible Mylio is for sorting and finding your photos, not to mention the fact that it allows you to view your photos from across all your devices, something that I can’t really ever imagine Lightroom offering. While the cost is likely going to be a concern for some, most are going to be served by the free or at most the Premium plan at $8.33 a month and considering the potential savings versus the Adobe Photography plan and/or a cloud storage plan, you should definitely consider taking Mylio for a spin.

Mylio CEO and founder, David Vaskevitch, was recently interviewed by Tech Company News. Here are some highlights:

David Vaskevitch - Mylio CEO

 

Q: You are the former CTO of Microsoft–Why did you create Mylio?

A: People are drowning in memories, particularly in the form of photographs. We created Mylio to help people organize and have constant access to a lifetime of memories.

Q: How would you describe Mylio in one sentence?

A: In a single sentence: Mylio is the first organizer of our precious memories, starting with photographs but also include videos and documents.

Q: How does Mylio bring all of your files together?

A: Mylio brings all your memories together in several ways. First, many of us have memories scattered across disks, computers, phones, and perhaps tablets. Mylio makes it easy to bring all those memories, particularly photos, into a single library so you can see everything in one place. Next Mylio makes all those memories available across all your devices. Whichever device you have with you – your phone, your tablet or your computer, Mylio arranges for all the memories to be everywhere. Third, and perhaps most important, Mylio provides powerful tools for organizing all those memories so you can find them quickly and easily.

Zapier: Photo Funnels – How a Professional Organizer Manages All Her Photographs

Zapier published an article by an avid Mylio user describing how she uses Mylio to keep massive photo libraries organized for her clients. Here are some highlights:

There are many options on the market, but I can highly recommend Mylio, which is a program you can use to sync photos to and from multiple devices, including your phone. Mylio gives you the option of bringing in your own cloud and importing photos from your Facebook account. It’s my go-to solution for clients who need a cross-platform solution that is highly customizable, and it’s the only photo organizing software I know of that allows you import your high-resolution photos from your phone while at the same time syncing low-resolution versions back out. This means that you can carry your entire photo library with you and only use up a fraction of the storage space it would otherwise occupy, making it an ideal solution for those on the go.
