In this back-to-school period, many of us are sorting through our holiday photos, wedding snaps, and birthday pictures. A common frustration arises: how can you gather all these precious photos scattered across friends’ or family members’ phones? An app appears to have the solution.
Developed in France, Airbum is a hybrid platform promising compatibility whether you are on an old Samsung or the very latest iPhone 14. With a straightforward creed: “Your best photos are also those of others,” this app aims to simplify photo management during events.
“We had this problem every time we went on holiday with friends,” explains Félix, one of the app’s founders. “There are always two or three in the group who take the photos for everyone. In the end, they only share a few on WhatsApp or Messenger. Our idea was that everyone should be able to add their own photos and have access to those of others without cluttering up group discussions“.
Features designed for everyone
Whether you are a tech enthusiast or resistant to technology, young or less young, this application is designed to be accessible to everyone.
One of the most innovative aspects of Airbum is its collaborative approach. It offers shared albums, but that’s not all. It’s also possible to share notes, and a chat is associated with each album, facilitating discussions between group members.
And for event organisers, the downloadable QR code is an asset, because it can be personalised with any photo you like. Imagine a QR code with your head on it? “The idea came to us from someone who was preparing for his wedding and wanted a QR code with his wife and himself in the background,” recalls one of the founders of Airbum.
It’s a little feature that won’t go unnoticed in the usually standardised world of QR codes.
A response to an increasingly prevalent societal need
One of Airbum’s strengths is its return to a private sphere. Gone are the days of public sharing on Facebook or Instagram. Here, each user decides who can access the photos. It’s an appealing proposition for those wanting to distance themselves from traditional social networks while still sharing cherished moments with loved ones.
Given the ever-evolving relationship with privacy in the digital age, can we expect to see other similar initiatives emerge in the future?
