Reminiscing promotes optimism
Reminiscing makes us feel more socially connected
Reminiscing reminds us to cultivate strong relationships, and pursue life goals
But we can't reminisce because our photo apps failed us
Our libraries are so massive, so overwhelming that we can't enjoy our memories. We're stuck relying on apps guessing what memories matter and what photos and videos are meaningful.
Our years of effort taking photos, pausing moments to capture just the right shot, are effectively wasted.
Backstory is different
Backstory transforms your endless mess of photos and videos into a breathtaking collection of favorite moments.
Your personal Backstory becomes your foundation for reminiscing, for entertaining memory experiences and for sharing your life story.
Prototypes of future memory experiences.
Backstory's magic isn't just having an organized collection of photos and videos, it's also in the process of curating, which is like a form of reminiscence therapy.
Backstory displays photos from your past
With simple swipe gestures you either skip or save each photo
As you advance through your photos, you'll find yourself fully absorbed, reliving your past
You'll process thousands of photos and videos in no time, creating a collection of only your best memories
Curate your memories, one month at a time.
It's fast, simple and fun.
Similar images are automatically grouped so you can choose the best and skip the rest!
Combine your and your partner's memories into a single collection.
Your family doesn't need the app to enjoy your Backstory. It's accessible on laptops, tablets and any Android or iOS phone.
Your feed of shared Backstories is just people you care deeply about, without politics, bragging, or competing, only videos and photos, beautifully presented.
There's no pressure to make comments or like everything. In fact, the only thing you can do, by design, is privately say thanks.
The sharing platform fosters natural and positive social interactions.
Memories that matter to you aren't just on your phone. They're buried in our partner's, family's, and friends' phones.
By using Backstory, family and friends can instantly save full-resolution copies of shared memories from their feed into their personal Backstories.
Import shared memories to your Backstory with the Add to Backstory button.
Backstory is creating a future where our memories, and those shared by our partners, family and friends, are the foundation for extraordinary experiences.
Far more ambitious than simple slideshows and montages - Backstory's goal is for you to relive favorite moments in ways never imagined before.
Start curating your Backstory today and step into this future.
