Monument Labs explains more :
We are taking more photos than ever. Smartphones, digital cameras and action cams are all around us, and capturing our best memories has become a part of everyday life. Unfortunately, storing, organizing and accessing these memories is still very difficult, requiring a computer and lots of time. And while cloud services offer a partial solution, we have to pay monthly fees for the rest of our lives. Plus the whole privacy thing.
The tools we need to manage our photos have not evolved at the same pace as our awesome cameras. We knew there had to be a better way, and we set out to find it with one simple mission: “Make managing our photos and videos as easy as taking them!
