Everpix, the young photo storage startup that aimed to solve your Photo Stream woes, is no more. Due to a lack of revenue and the inability to scale, the company’s founders announced today that the service will be shutting down in the coming weeks.
From the Everpix blog:
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.
For $5 per month, Everpix offered unlimited storage for photos from multiple sources (Camera Roll, Instagram etc.), deleted duplicates, and allowed them to be viewed in an attractive web and iOS app. Our own Charlie Sorrel swore by the service, so now he’ll have to find a new replacement to fall in love with all over again.
Customers will be receiving refunds soon and Everpix will contact its user base to explain photo exporting. The Verge has a great piece on why Everpix went out of business. It looks like it came down to a lack of funding. What a shame.
