Mylio was created with the goal of makingphotography enjoyable and efficient. It does this with a powerful app thatmakes viewing your photos easy and intuitive. First Mylio syncs across all yourdevices, so you can find any photo from any device. It imports those photos(and thankfully the preexisting file structures!) from all those scatteredlocations and brings them together in a single, easy-to-navigate interface. Thephoto library software also has editing tools for touching up yourphotos. Then Mylio allows you to share those photos by sending them as emailsor posting them to social media. And that’s just an overview!

What Makes Mylio Unique?
Mylio boasts a few key features that set itapart from the rest:
- Life Calendar
Mylio’s Life Calendar is a gift. Not only does it make finding your photos easy, it also surfaces your most popular photos for easy viewing. Mylio helps automatically organize your library by syncing with your digital calendars and displaying your media in a beautiful Life Calendar, viewable by decades, years, months, and days. Connect your Outlook, iCal, or Google Calendar, and Mylio automatically groups your photos and videos into events. Click an event title, and re-experience the joy of those photo memories.
- True Security
In our increasingly connected digital age, Mylio understands the importance of securing your photos. The first layer of protection is that your photos are synced across multiple devices, so even if one device breaks down, goes missing, or is destroyed in a natural disaster, you still have access to your entire photo library on another device. Mylio also allows you to set up a Vault, which is a secure device (desktop, laptop, or hard drive) that stores all your originals. You can also choose to sync your photos to a cloud service; if you decide to do that, Mylio automatically encrypts your photos so the cloud service won’t be able to see your personal information.
- Everything, Anytime, Anywhere
The freedom that Mylio gives you cannot be overstated. It makes all your photos available to you on any device, which is such a timesaver in the 21st century. With all your photos at your fingertips all the time, you can get so much done in so many different settings.

In People View, you can choose a person’s name and instantly see all the photos that person appears in. In Map View, you can see your photos on an elegant world map and zoom in to see the pictures you took in each location. All this in combination with flags, tags, keywords, and stars make finding your favorite photo memories simple and fun.
It is free to use for up to 25,000 photos and 3 devices.
