Everpix is shutting down

Casey Newton at The Verge:

One day last month, the seven employees of Everpix gathered at their co-working space in San Francisco to discuss the company’s impending shutdown. Wayne Fan, one of the co-founders, opened a mock-up of the screen that the photo storage service’s customers would see once the company announced the news. The screen described the refunds that would be offered to the company’s 6,800 paid subscribers, assuming Everpix could come up with the money. No one knew if they would.

It took me around 3 weeks to sync all my photo libraries to Everpix, across March and April of this year. A couple days later I was in a pub, talking to an old mate about a impromptu cricket match we played on ANZAC Day in 2006. I was able to pull up a bunch of photos I took on that day, right then and there.

At that moment, I knew this was a great service.

Everpix was the best at what it did; having a set-and-forget way to store and view all your photos, from anywhere. I’m going to miss it, that’s for sure.
