When I began architecting Memorable, my first requirement was that the app was able to work offline, on every operating system.
This was not a simple technical feat since neither Google Photos nor Amazon Photos work without internet on Windows and Mac, and Apple Photos only works offline on Mac but not Windows.
Local peace of mind
Usually, photos and videos are synced from a local computer or smartphone device to the Cloud. Memorable’s technology syncs in both directions, making it possible to both upload and download every photo and video. By downloading, you can store a complete archive of all your memories locally on a hard drive.
Memories without internet
On a plane, during an internet outage, or in any offline scenario, the Memorable app keeps working by using your local and downloaded files. In addition, organization performed offline is uploaded when online again so that your changes are saved and distributed to every device and computer with Memorable installed.
A huge advantage of an offline-first design strategy is that it is much faster to show a photo or play a video from a local file than one residing on the Cloud. When we present media in Memorable, we default to using a local version and use the Cloud as a backup. This ensures that the app stays super crisp as you navigate tens of thousands of memories.
