We believe humans are like one big family, sharing this diverse and beautiful planet under one blue sky – a roof if you will, we also believe that we deserve much more effective communication platforms that could empower us to maximally and freely connect while pursuing individual life journeys, against the boundaries of geography, time differences and weather changes; with utmost attention to our content privacy.
With that in mind and considering current communication tools limitations, we have envisioned a Communication Platform that will enable its users to Almost-Live With each other, where streamlined essential life cues are seamlessly exchanged, enabling users to intuitively communicate feelings, captured moments, memories, milestones, help, tips and much more – we made it our objective to materialize this into reality.
