I made an app that’s like a personal Google for your own stuff, but with better search.
For a long time I wondered why the way we store files in the digital space has remained unchanged from how we’ve been storing physical paper for centuries. About three years ago, I decided there must be a better way and, after studying an MSc in innovation and entrepreneurship at a top European business school, I dedicated myself with a team of crazy genius engineers to the creation of a new relationship based storage service that mimics the way our brain remembers information. It associates everything thrown into it with its context (what it’s about, which information it relates to, where it’s from, who created it, when it was saved, how important is it, etc.) instead of just one folder path or keywords.
The app (which will also have a web-version for access to your stuff from any device) lets you store all your digital resources (photos, videos, docs, websites, notes, etc.) in one place and understands how they are connected – a bit like an automated version of a PI’s bulletin board, but with three dimensions instead of two. Amongst 5 ways of viewing the organisation of your files, there’s a 3D visualisation showing you how all your data is connected and stored. It's pretty cool and super useful!
We’re excited to roll out the private Beta version to gather very first feedback on our big unveil at the Mobile World Congress / 4YFN in Barcelona soon! We're allowing first users to sign up to our waitlist, it would be a huge help if you become one of the first to try and share this upcoming productivity tool – and we'll make sure to reward you once we're fully rolled out.
