AnnaMarie Houlis writes about Mylio and how great it is for travel. Here’s a snippet with a link to the full article at the bottom.
Mylio is more than an organizational app for your photos. You can edit and access your safely stored photos any time, anywhere in the world. In this Mylio review, we dive into some of its best features for travelers.
What I need to better organize my travel memories is an app that can do it all for me.
Mylio is the free photo organizer every traveler needs. It works for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android, and it manages all of your photos and files from all of your devices and online services like Facebook and Flickr.
It’s more than just an organizational tool, however. The app boasts a number of impressive features that help me to organize, edit and access my safely stored photos.
Pauleth Ip at The Phoblographer published a detailed review of Mylio Free and Premium this week. Here is a taste…
One of the unintended side effects of living life in the digital age is that we all inevitably experience digital clutter in one form or another. Known sometimes as storage creep, this phenomenon certainly applies to us photographers as well. I personally know photographers that have a drawer containing nothing but hard drives and memory cards that are full of images (You know who you are). That doesn’t even include all the photos we have taken or saved on our phones or tablets. If you were Marie Kondo, having to juggle thousands of images across all of these devices certainly doesn’t spark joy. This is where Mylio comes in, with the goal of bringing order to your digital chaos. Mylio allows you to consolidate all of your photos and videos into one place, syncing them across all of your devices so that you can access them everywhere.
An exclusive Tech Tribune Q&A with David Vaskevitch, the founder and CEO of Mylio
Tell us the origin story of Mylio – what problem were you trying to solve and why?
Mylio was originally founded to solve the problems of managing and organizing instant digital access to a lifetime of memories. It provides an easy and elegant way to have your pictures/memories with you and protected all the time, but more importantly, it is the only app really focused on keeping those memories accessible for multiple generations if a family of memories is included.
What was the biggest hurdle you encountered in your journey?
The biggest hurdle is that we took on a very difficult problem and underestimated just how hard it would be to solve. Even more, we underestimated both how important and how hard it would be to make Mylio really approachable by all kinds of people.
What does the future hold for Mylio?
We are excited about Mylio becoming the standard way that people who care about how their photos are organized get there.
What are your thoughts on the local tech startup scene in Bellevue?
In my mind, this is the best tech environment in the US and maybe in the world. We have the depth and breadth of talent along with a variety of perspectives, but we also have a great culture and a great environment to live and work in.
What’s your best advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?
Have a clear picture of your customers, be prepared for lots of hard work, hire only the best people, and remain committed to your vision.
Maggie King writs again about Mylio, this time from the perspective of an advanced user. Here are some of her thoughts with a link to her full article below.
Recently I wrote about a new discovery of mine, a digital photo organization system called Mylio. Here’s a quick refresher:
Mylio is an alternative to the uncertainty of Cloud-based services, but it plays nicely with the Cloud if you want it to. It’s a way to store your photos so that you’ll actually look at them, and you don’t have to throw your current method of organization out the window to do so. It’s got features suitable for the most basic users all the way up to professional photographers.
In my first piece about Mylio, I covered some of those basic features. Now we’re going to dig a little deeper. Fellow control freaks, this one’s for you.
The Dashboard: Your Mylio Info Hub
The key to really mastering Mylio isn’t so much about learning to find your photos (calendar view makes that easy) it’s about learning where to find your information. To view your Mylio Dashboard, look for the little laptop icon at the top right of Mylio. When you click it, up comes the dashboard.
Navigate by scrolling left to right on your mouse or touchpad, or by clicking one of the two arrows at the top right. There’s a lot to unpack here, so we’re going to go section by section…
Maggie King – seasoned photo editor – shares her experience with Mylio on Medium:
If you’ve read my thoughts on keeping your digital photos stored and organized for good, you know it’s a topic I care a lot about. But even more than keeping them neat and tidy, I care about actually viewing my digital photos, and sometimes that’s a different story.
I stand by the system I laid out in that article. It’s important to have multiple, reliable backups and to still print photos every now and then. However, when you have literally thousands of photos, you don’t always remember every photo you’ve ever taken. It becomes a hassle to look through hundreds of folders trying to find the batch you’re wanting. Stuff gets buried and it stays buried.
In my search for an intuitive system that solves this problem, I crossed paths with Mylio, an up-and-coming software that’s designed to come at the issue from a slightly different angle. For the past two weeks, I’ve been trying it out. I fiddled with features, put it through some paces, and had a really enlightening talk with Mylio’s CMO, Cheryl Isen, and Mylio Customer Champion J.C. Figueroa.
There’s no doubt that we’re a photo-centric society. Thanks to our smartphones, we can quickly and easily take photos of anything and everything. This has inspired MyLio, a digital assistant that looks to sync and organize photos, as well as free space on your smartphone. We spoke with MyLio CEO David Vaskevitch about the origins of the platform as well as the most interesting story he’s heard from a user.
Innovation & Tech Today: Where did the idea for MyLio originate?
David Vaskevitch: The idea for MyLio originated because I wanted to change the way the world remembers. People are drowning in memories, especially in the form of photographs. I came up with MyLio to help people organize and have constant access to their lifetime of memories. MyLio began with photographs and now includes videos and documents. It basically works as a virtual assistant, helping you easily organize and find any file on any device, anytime, anywhere.
Barry Stevens at Entertainment Focus published a nice article on Mylio this week. Here are some of the highlights.
How many photos do have on your phone? If you need a picture urgently would you know if it’s on your phone, laptop, PC, an SD card or a USB stick somewhere floating around your desk?
As we take more and more photos it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of where the photos actually are and this puts them at risk of being lost. I actually cleared out my phone the other day and despite deleting over a thousand there are still just as many still clogging up the memory.
This is where Mylio hopes to make things easier for us all. Mylio is a free app (paid plans are also available) that aims to get your photos organised and accessible across all of your devices. I have personally downloaded the app and had it up and running in about 30 seconds. I’m yet to test all of its features but setting up couldn’t be easier.
