We’d like to show you ente.io, an alternative to Google Photos that we’ve been building over the last year.
We employ client side encryption to securely backup your photos to multiple storage locations (including an underground fallout shelter). Your data syncs across all your devices, end-to-end encrypted. We've native apps for Android and iOS. The former offers background-sync. We also have a web app that lets you reliably bulk-upload content from your hard disk. You can also share your albums with your loved ones, end-to-end encrypted. We're currently working on adding client-side search (based on location and time).
This is the first public forum we’re posting in (so we’re nervous). But the product is now quite reliable (early users have backed up over 120,000 files) and we’d like to polish things further based on your feedback.
Here are our apps:
Android APK (notifies you of updates): https://github.com/ente-io/frame/releases/ PlayStore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.ente.photos AppStore: https://apps.apple.com/in/app/ente-photos/id1542026904 Web: https://web.ente.io
The code for our apps are open (mobile, web), and so is our architecture.
Please let us know what you think!
P.S: We’re available on r/enteio if you would like to hang out. :)
