Picjoy Launches to Automatically Organize Your Photos

Photo Organization App Launches to Algorithmically Find Images Through Visual and Contextual Cues

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2015) - Finding photos on your phone shouldn't be the hardest part of your day. It should be fast and easy to call up a specific shot while you're chatting with a friend or in a meeting. Picjoy launches today to remove the pain from what should be a simple task: Finding those photos. Picjoy uses a complex algorithm to automatically tag images on your iPhone, and in iCloud accounts, making it easier than ever to quickly surface the photos you're looking for, regardless of where they're stored or when they were taken.

"We've all been there, mid-conversation trying to pull up a photo with no luck. Picjoy solves this problem so you never miss an opportunity to share an experience again," said Zach Mangum, CEO, Picjoy. "The average person takes 5 photos per day on their smartphones, which means 2.4 billion photos are taken on phones every day. With so many pictures, there needs to be an easy way to reference the one you want, when you want it. This should not be a difficult task."

Over 880 billion pictures were taken in 2014 alone. At this rate, the ease of taking photos on our smartphones is beginning to outrun the actual need to keep and store "memories." Instead of spending weekends organizing your pictures, Picjoy's simple, clean interface makes it easy to find photos in seconds without any extra steps.

Picjoy features and benefits:

  • Seamless search: Sort and find any image, regardless of where it's stored; customize tags to further control the organization and search process
  • Story Capture: Annotate selected photos with a "Story" to provide better context, preserving those memories forever
  • Automatic categorization: Picjoy instantly gathers information such as date, season, weather, holidays, events landmarks, etc. -- providing more dynamic photo organization and searchability
  • Everything in one place: Connect iCloud (other cloud storage integrations coming soon) and all your photos become searchable right from your mobile phone
  • Lightweight app at no cost to your photos: Robust features replace native options without requiring massive amounts of storage space (under 10MB) or compressing your files at the expense of photo quality
  • Privacy: Only stores metadata on their servers to organize your photos, not use your information -- the app scans photo collection and applies tags, then photos are erased from everywhere but your phone

Picjoy is available for free in the iTunes App Store. For more information, please visit www.picjoyapp.com.
