Our biggest launch, Ever.
Today is full of announcements, so let’s buckle in and get started!
From the beginning, our mission has been to help the world capture and relive life’s memories. We’ve added millions of new users and billions of new photos in just the last year, but we’re just getting started.
The core experience has been driving this growth, yet we’re constantly pushing ourselves to find new and meaningful ways to realize this mission. Our brand is about living fully, connecting with the people you love, and appreciating the moments you’ve shared. And with that in mind, we’re announcing Ever, an expansion of Everalbum to reflect both the current digital service and the future.
We are now live on Ever.com.
Today we’re launching our first product that enables users to catalog and relive memories not just digitally, but physically as well.
Meet Ever Books
Ever Books are stunning. They’re beautiful photo books with elegant bindings and layouts. Best of all, they take just seconds to create! Ever Books take the pain out of creating collections of your most cherished memories for you and your loved ones.
Nearly 500 million albums have been created and shared on Ever to date, each representing an important moment in life — a graduation, birthday, new birth or vacation. With one click, each of these digital albums can be made real and shipped to your home in days.
Ever Books will begin to roll out today to Ever Plus subscribers and will continue to be rolled out in the coming weeks to users globally. They’ll start at just $19.99, and for all you new Ever Plus annual subscribers out there, you’ll get your first Ever Book free with your subscription!
At the core of Ever is a powerful photo technology engine — now core to Ever Books. Our team of data scientists and machine learning leads leverage thousands of image classifiers, facial recognition technology and more to help identify exactly the right photos for each of your Ever Books. We’ve spent years developing this technology, and we’re excited to apply it photo books, which are loved by so many, yet historically so difficult to make.
We’re also thrilled to share that Doug Aley has joined us to lead the Ever Books initiative along with future expansion to our core service. Doug is an ex-Amazon, Zulily and Minted exec where he spent the past decade building mass market products in the digital and physical space.
In addition to Ever Books, the team has been working hard to continue building the simplest cross-platform service for memories. Today, Ever is coming to your desktop.
Ever arrives on Mac & Windows
Everyone has photos on their computers, and often some of the most cherished and long-forgotten photos are the ones living in folders on your desktop. Ever for Mac and Ever for Windows are beautifully designed to bring those photos to life, and to sync perfectly across your phones or tablets. Everything you’ve come to love about Ever on your iPhone or Android phone is now available for Mac & Windows, making it even easier to access, organize and relive these memories wherever you are.
With a quick drag into the desktop app, Ever will replicate all of our magic on mobile. Upload is fast and effortless, and within minutes your photos will be organized, accessible and synced across all of your devices. We’re proud of our first desktop release and in the coming months we’ll continue to improve the experience with even more advanced functionality such as editing, Ever Book creation, and social sharing and swapping. Stay tuned!
A special thanks to everyone on the team, all of our partners and investors who have continued to help make this dream a reality. Ever has a huge vision, and without all of this support, milestones like today wouldn’t be possible.
