It started with the digital clutter. It was getting out of hand.
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.
But that was just the beginning.
Because even after you get all your photos straight, that supercomputer in your pocket (aka ‘telephone’) is still way underutilized. Mostly it just connects with a 3rd-party server someplace. The cloud. That’s where the heavy lifting happens.
But what if you actually used the processing power of your own device? What if there were tools that let you create and manage your files on any device, then sync them without the cloud? What if you could be confident that your privacy was intact, because your files weren’t leaving the confines of your own device network? Wouldn't that be a game changer?
We think so. That’s why we’re building Mylio as a platform to manage more than just photos, and build it so that only you control how your data is managed. We’re building an internet file system over the world’s first mesh network. From completely private, to 3rd party cloud-connected, the choice is yours.
Today, the Mylio photo app is a virtual, visual Swiss Army knife that helps anyone access, edit, organize, protect, and share their memories. Tomorrow – well, we’re just getting started. If you value privacy, choice, and control, we invite you to join us on the journey.
