Ron Levy: The inspiration for Flavyr came from frustratingly scrolling through the camera roll. I would literally get lost.
I have two kids, so I am constantly taking tons of photos and videos trying to capture little moments. I realized that the memories in my head were completely different from what I had captured using my phone's camera.
We saw an issue with the entire way of consuming experiences and sharing them. It is less than ideal today. You share an album for really long trips but for little moments, everyday life was in the camera roll and we wanted to pull that out.
BI: Why name it Flavyr?
RL: Flavyr represents the flavor of being able to put something that is very personal out and giving it a personal touch. We wanted to give this app a flavor that you really felt.
Check out a video of the app in action:
BI: Are you all planning on issuing an Android version of the app anytime soon?
RL: We plan to have an Android app available within the next few months.
BI: What are your favorite features of the app?
RL: One of my favorite features of the app is the way the app collects photos and organizes them on an automatic level. I also really like being able to look at videos alongside photos. The videos give a strong feeling of what was going on.
BI: How long did it take you to develop the app?
RL: My co-founder, Adi and I have been working together on the app for a year. It took us a few extra months to work out the HTML5 back end.
BI: What's next for Flavyr? What features do you plan on adding?
RL: We plan on adding additional editing options. We also want to give users the ability to combine multiple Flayvrs. In addition, we're working on a lot more automation behind the scenes, but we want to also allow users to add photos and videos from the camera roll that weren't automatically added to other flavors.
