A shared photo library for your family -...
Collecting memories with family brings us closer. Pausing for a moment to snap a picture or write a few words helps us value our relationships and the experiences we have together. And sometimes sharing as a family reminds us that our family relationships are special and unique. Today we’re very excited to introduce a new version of JustFamily designed to make sharing life with family even...
A nice review in a beautiful language →
We were surprised and delighted by this really nice review in L’Echo, Belgium’s financial newspaper. We really appreciated how the reviewer used personas to describe how different family members might react to JF and then eventually be won over. Also super impressed that the reviewer used JF enough to be able to call out features like “reply to comment” from email. He even...

Remembering Uncle Robin
It’s me, Nate. This Memorial Day morning my wife Vanessa got us all gathered around the dining room table for some quiet reading time. Our 4 year old wasn’t having it and he took off to play “croquet” with a rubber mallet and a tennis ball. Our 6 year old went out to supervise. Soon the two of them were using the mallet to pound tennis balls into my car’s exhaust pipes. But even with that...
The Magical Memory Jar
Hi, there. Nate again. Lots of our early private beta users asked us where the whole idea for the jar icon in our logo came from. Well, dear reader, this is the story… From our earliest days we would talk as a team about our purpose and the resulting “identity” that should follow along with it. The purpose part was actually pretty easy. We all wanted to build a fun and easy way to collect,...
