The reality is that you won't have fewer photos in five years, you'll only have more. If you've ever longed to enjoy managing all your photos and videos in one program, easily accessible on all your devices and continually backed up (whew!), then Mylio could be the photo management app for you. Even though you can't create the kind of print or web projects like you can in iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom, automatic backup peace of mind may be worth the tradeoff.
But price may be a tradeoff too: Mylio's Advanced subscription costs $250 per year for raw editing, 12 devices, 500,000 photos, Lightroom integration, Shuttle, 25GB of cloud storage. A standard subscription is $100 per year for raw editing, 5 devices, 100,000 photos, Lightroom integration, and 10GB of cloud storage. But you can kick the tires indefinitely with a trial subscription, covering 3 devices and 1000 photos.
For now, pros who use Lightroom and Lightroom Mobile benefit from Lightroom's superior feature set, but miss Mylio's unique ability to corral all their photos and videos into one program that's accessible (and backed up) on multiple devices. With an app this exciting at version one, it could be a killer app at version two.
