Document Life’s Best Moments Privately With Friends

Sharing is caring!

I am constantly taking pictures every single day – mostly of the food I’m eating and snaps of my dog, Basil. But all those photos just get dumped into the camera roll and it’s hard to go through to organize. Thanks to the Seahorse app I can now document life together in shared experiences with friends and family. I love the intuitive organizing and sorting by date, location, friends and scenes make it easy to find and share memories.

“I literally woke up one day and realized that almost all photos and videos from my life – taken by, of and around me – were nowhere to be seen,” explains Oskar Hjertonsson, CEO and co-founder of Seahorse. “My co-founder experienced the same problem. We realized we could build an experience that’s not about you and your photos, but about us and our photos, and solve that problem in a way that’s easy and fun.”

Share Memories

Seahorse lets you create collaborative photo and video albums with friends and family. The app is beautifully designed with intuitive organization and sorting – by date, location, friends and scenes – users have a better way to collect and enjoy their photos from their mobile devices and across the web. Photos and videos are automatically sync from your camera roll so you’ll never lose another photo or memory to share. You can import photos and videos from Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Google+, Picasa, Flickr, and Microsoft OneDrive. Everything is stored in its original resolution in a safe and secure cloud environment within Seahorse.

The boyfriend and I both add to the Basil Scene with photos that we take of him during the week. Snapshots from when Basil’s at the office with him to when Basil goes to the vet with me.


Seahorse App

Seahorse also offers “Magic” and “Flashback” features that brings back photos from today’s date to previous years. The “Magic” feature displays a different photo from your archives when you shake your phone. It’s a great way to discover a forgotten moment, milestone or celebration. Here’s macarons and champagne from my trip to San Antonio!
