We Gave It Our All…

It is with a heavy heart we announce that Everpix will be shutting down in the coming weeks.

We started this company two years ago with the goals of solving the photo mess and designing better ways for people to enjoy their memories. We are very proud of the work we’ve done—from the cutting-edge semantic analysis and syncing technology, right down to every pixel on our website and mobile apps.

We are grateful to our investors for giving us the opportunity to grow this project. But more importantly, we are so very thankful to the folks who supported us with subscriptions and feedback. You guys are the best.

It’s frustrating (to say the least) that we cannot continue to work on Everpix. We were unable to secure sufficient funding in order to properly scale the business, and our endeavors to find a new home for Everpix did not come to pass. At this point, we have no other options but to discontinue the service.

We will email everyone soon in regards to refunds and exporting photos from Everpix—your memories are very important to us, and you can rest assured everyone on the team is working hard to ensure a swift and simple process.

Please read this document which explains the situation in more detail.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or thoughts. Email us at feedback@everpix.com or tweet @everpix.

Thank you, again. We’ll miss you.

The Everpix Team

Highlights:

  • Everpix has switched to read-only mode and will continue to operate until December 15th, 2013.

  • Your data is safe, and we will not sell or transfer any of your photos or personal information to anyone else, period.

  • We will email instructions to all Everpix users on how to download their photos.

  • We will refund every subscriber. This process will take some time and we will email everyone in the next few weeks with more information.

  • Thank you everyone. We will miss you.

  • Please read the FAQ for more details.

Web Update!

We gave our website a big design refresh! Here are a couple glamour shots and a few words on the array of interaction and visual changes we’ve added:

image

1. New Navigation UI
The new navigation design was the first part of the design refresh. We pushed the update out a few weeks ago and since have added a number of UX enhancements and tweaks. Now It’s easier than ever to access your entire photo collection! 

image

2. Enhanced information pane
We redesigned the icons, simplified the UI, and tidied up the typography.

3. Nearby photos!
When browsing through your collection, you can now see other photos taken around the same area. Remember the last time you were at a picnic in the park, dining at your favorite restaurant, or even Disneyland? Now you can with nearby photos.

image

4. Go to month & time sorting
For all of our time-traveling customers who are fans of reverse-chronology, you can now do both!

image

5. Redesigned popover style
Less grays, more white, and spiffy new navigation icons. :-)

image

One of the biggest parts of this update is that our web app is now 100% responsive. We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure Everpix.com is fully accessible whether you’re browsing on your computer, tablet, or phone.

A few more things:

  • "Load More" recent photos
    You’re no longer limited to just 2 rows of recent moments. Now you can now load all your latest photos to your heart’s content.
  • New “floating” notifications bar design
  • Slideshow
    Step 1: Tap on the play button in the navigation bar to start a photo slideshow.
    Step 2: Enjoy!
  • "Option" button
    Quickly hide, rotate, delete, and download photos without opening the photo info pane 

There are more very neat features / updates we are currently working on. Stay tuned.

2.1: Nearby Photos, Hide / Delete, and More!

image

1. Nearby Photos
Remember the last time you were at a picnic in the park, dining at your favorite restaurant, or even Disneyland? When browsing through your photos, you can now see other photos taken around the same area. Nearby photos is also available on the web via the photo info pane and Flashback emails.

2. Hide / Unhide / Delete
Hide and unhide a photo from your collection or delete it altogether (we always recommend hide rather than delete to be on the safe side). You can toggle "Show Hidden" in Settings to see hidden photos.

Also in 2.1…

• Slideshow
Step 1: Tap on the play button to start a photo slideshow. Step 2: Enjoy!

• Sort Reverse Chronologically
For all of our customers who are fans of reverse-chronology, you can now choose to sort photos by newest or oldest on top via Settings.

• Performance Improvements
The app is now much snappier and also has sharper (higher-resolution) photo thumbnails. 

• Share (airplane) icon now has rounded corners
It just looks nicer this way…

Hello Android

Everpix Uploader for Android is here and you can get it from Google Play!

It’s a syncing app for the first release so folks can easily get their mobile photos into Everpix. There’s a lot of design and engineering required to build an app that can handle photos in the tens of thousands while maintaining a great user experience, so we’re starting small.

Take it for a spin and let us know what you think @everpix

Introducing Everpix 2.0 

We are happy to introduce Everpix 2 for iPhone and iPad. We’ve redesigned the app from the ground up to really put all your photos at your fingertips. Now it’s never been more delightful and effortless to browse through your memories—from the dozens and dozens of vacation photos to the simple snapshots of everyday life.

Rediscover your photo history with Flashback
We are dusting off those old JPEGs and packaging them into a daily dose of memories. Flashback delivers to you the photos that you’ve taken today in history and helps you reconnect with your best shots. You can get your Flashback on the web, iOS apps, or right in your inbox.

image

Highlights 2.0
Along with all the shiny new features, we are also rolling out a brand new Highlights algorithm under the hood. Highlights pares your photo collection down, selecting the ones that best represent your memories, so you can enjoy your photos at a glance. It’s Science!

Something Fun…

image

We made a fun (standalone) app called Memories that shows you photos that you’ve taken today in history.

The app will light up when you have new memories to explore. It works locally with your iPhoto, Aperture, or Lightroom. No sign up, no setup, no syncing, it works right out of the box. 

Take a look, pass it on, and let us know what you think! :-)

Download the app

(Everpix Memories is not available anymore)

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.7 or later, iPhoto 9.3 or later, Aperture 3.3 or later, Lightroom 3.3 or later.

Note: Memories is a standalone app that works independent of your Everpix account. We made this quick app to see whether we can build a neat user experience right out of the box—rediscovering old memories. We’ll definitely integrate some of these features into our standard apps in the future. -Wayne
