RIP Everpix

I really, really liked Everpix. I signed up to pay for the service, and I uploaded thousands of photos. The part I enjoyed the most was the daily flashback email that showed me highlights from this day last year, the year before, etc. I regularly would look at those and share selected images of the kiddos, etc, with my wife. I’ll miss that.

Right now, I’m looking at alternatives. The two big ones seem to be Picturelife and Loom.

Picturelife offered up a way to migrate images from Everpix, so I’ve signed up there first. So far, it looks pretty cool. I had to unsubscribe from a friend’s shared iCloud Photo Stream for the time being, because it was polluting my Picturelife, but other than that it’s been pretty seamless.

I have the Loom app on my phone, but I haven’t really tried it out yet.

I’ve got tens of thousands of photos. Does anyone have any better suggestions?
