French start-up Lumenaki’s promise “Record, Recall, Relive” is fulfilled by its innovative new iPhone app, which it will be showcasing at Web Summit 2015 in Dublin, set up in partnership with French Tech by Business France, the French export-support agency.
Described as a “Life Content Manager”, Lumenaki is the first mobile platform to offer all services needed to manage our digital memory: a personal content management system, an online publishing tool and a private social network. Users can securely gather, organise, publish and control all their digital memories and life moments from a single mobile app.
From smart photo apps like Dropbox Carousel, Google Photos and Facebook Moments to storytelling tools such as Storehouse, Steller and now the Microsoft Sway app, there are a whole host of apps to help us visually present moments in our lives and tell their story. Yet this experience remains somewhat incomplete; partly because presentation is often impersonal and reflects little emotion, and partly because not one of these apps succeeds in managing all our personal content in a way that recreates those unique moments that make our lives special.
These moments cannot be summarised in photos and videos alone. They also include other personal content and contextual information which, once gathered, help to make up the complete journey. We create a large amount of this content every day on top of our photos and videos (quotes, notes, contact information, check-ins, posts on social networking sites, etc.) but it is useless if it is scattered across too many different sites and applications. We can’t benefit from our digital memory unless we reconnect all these aspects of our lives.
Lumenaki takes a radically different approach by providing a new service to fully manage and control users’ digital memory. Its innovative new mobile service offers a unique way to securely capture, gather, organise and share all of its users’ personal digital content using a single mobile app whose design and user interface enhances content and makes it possible for users to relive the emotion of the moment.
Lumenaki’s new iPhone app enables users to:
• Centralise all their personal content and life moments in one secure place: photos, videos, previous and future social posts, notes, thoughts, addresses, contacts and maps;
• Organise their content into thematic albums and personalise them as they like;
• Relive the emotions experienced at the time;
• Decide who has access and who can contribute: invite and revoke readers, co-create and collaborate thanks to shared albums, publish albums online like a blog or keep them for their eyes only;
• Maintain full control and ownership.
Following positive user feedback and in line with its vision, Lumenaki has now developed version 2.0 of its mobile platform, which it will be showcasing at Web Summit 2015. Version 2.0 will boast a new dashboard, a new way to organise and browse albums, a tutorial to help first-time users and a smart album suggestion assistant, among other exciting new features.
The Lumenaki app is free and available to download on the AppStore.
Version 2.0 of the app will be available to download on 29th October 2015, one week ahead of Web Summit.
Lumenaki was founded by CEO Cédric Garcin, who has over 20 years of experience in complex international digital and technical projects, alongside COO David Dzialowski and CSO Michael Goossens, Lumenaki investors and active partners. The company has raised €245,000 of seed funding to date and is currently preparing for a new round of fundraising.
