How this app came into being?
In the words of Plato, “Necessity is the mother of invention”. This holds good for the creation and perhaps the introduction of the ‘EyeEm’ app. The way how this app came into being is a rather interesting story. It so happened that a gentleman known by the name Florian Meissner misplaced his digital camera while he was in New York. This photographer by profession had to borrow and use one of his friend’s iPhone to take pictures. This opened the doors of opportunity for him to discover how many people across the world are sharing their photo shots in the online space. And here came the idea and inspiration to introduce an app to connect people beyond the boundaries of networking websites with images.
A new app is launched
It is believed that Florian Meissner is one of the cofounders of the company that launched the ‘EyeEm’ app. The company was launched in January 2010. Initially the app was known as ‘EYE’EM’ app. It was later renamed as ‘EyeEm’.
