Cloud based photo host Everpix goes public as beta

Another day, another photo management service. There are lots of options online for uploading pictures, and each one tries to find a different way to gain its userbase. One new service is Everpix, which went into public beta only today. The service was a finalist on TechCrunch Disrupt, back in October.

In essence, Everpix is similar to Flickr and other online services, though it has a few differences. The system collates your photos from across social networks and other services, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Once it has found and synced all your photographs to the cloud, Everpix automatically creates what it calls 'Moments'. While similar in concept to iPhoto's 'Events', 'Moments' are created automatically and can identify low-quality or otherwise poor images for you.

As with every new service on the internet, Everpix comes with its own issue: it is limited only to Mac OS X and iOS at present, though they claim Android and Windows applications are currently in the works. According to the questions asked at TechCrunch Disrupt, Everpix will work on a Freemium business model, though the limits of a free account are not currently known.

The design is definitely 'Apple-esque', though this was almost a certainty since two of the three main developers spent some time at the Cupertino based company. The beta for Everpix is public; sign up at their website in order to get into the service before it is fully prepared.

It doesn't work with the Opera browser, be warned, they apparently believe the user is going to change their favourite browser for them and tell you you have to change it.

Does not work on netscape too.
LOL, netscape?...

Works just fine in FireFox. Still loading my pix, so waiting to see what it actually looks like.

What advantages, other than looking pretty, does this have over flickr or picasa?

I don't know. I guess you can upload PORN.

Hmm nice interface although I'll stick with Flickr.

Can't someone buy Flickr (Please Apple/MS?) so it can be developed outside the crappy Yahoo tangled mess that it currently is. It really is starting to look dated.... I'm sure it turns a profit though.

Google? I know MS has talked about buying Yahoo before, so maybe that will eventually happen, but I'm not sure I want MS to own Flikr. After all, they have done so much recently with their own photo software. /sarcasm

Many of these cloud services/solutions will lost in the clouds... It really defies the purpose to use as a realiable & long term data storage such as your music or photos.

What's it have to do with "cloud"? Cloud is a buzzword, it sooks and must die.

Cloud is just a buzzword for "online".

They're getting hammered at the moment so can't comment to much. It certainly looks really good, and if the storage space is near unlimited I can see me using this as a backup for my photos.

Weirdly it seems to think it's connected to my flickr and instagram even though I haven't connected them yet, I'm assuming issues with the heavy load
