Create a Seahorse Scene

Create Seahorse scenes with friends and family to share photos and videos.

We realized we could build an experience that’s not about you and your photos, but about us and our photos, and solve that problem in a way that’s easy and fun.

Available today, Seahorse is a new app for documenting life together in shared experiences with friends and family. The Seahorse app is the first of its kind to be designed around an experience where photos and videos automatically belong to people invited to a shared experience. From life’s greatest adventures to celebrations and milestones, all photos and videos shared create a complete memory that can be enjoyed forever. Seahorse is available in the App Store and Google Play for free.

Through Seahorse, photos and videos are collected and shared in private scenes with invited friends and family. All photos and videos shared in a scene are co-owned, or belong to, everyone invited to that scene. By removing the importance of who took the photo and shared it, Seahorse has designed a more logical way for users to create rich memories from everyone that was present or is connected to a particular scene.

“I literally woke up one day and realized that almost all photos and videos from my life - taken by, of and around me - were nowhere to be seen,” explains Oskar Hjertonsson, CEO and co-founder of Seahorse. “My co-founder experienced the same problem. We realized we could build an experience that’s not about you and your photos, but about us and our photos, and solve that problem in a way that’s easy and fun.”

Beautifully designed with intuitive organization and sorting - by date, location, friends and scenes – users have a better way to collect and enjoy their photos from their mobile devices and across the web. With Seahorse, automatically sync photos and videos from your camera roll so you’ll never lose another photo or memory to share. Create even richer experiences by importing your photos and videos from Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Google+, Picasa, Flickr, and Microsoft OneDrive. Everything is stored in its original resolution in a safe and secure cloud environment within Seahorse.

Explore past photos and remember life in different ways using Seahorse with Timeline, Flashback, Magic and Map. Timeline shows all of your photos and videos from all your scenes which can be filtered by place, time and friends that are in the scenes your photos and videos are in. Flashback to see what was happening on today's date in previous years. Use Map to travel to your memories from your favorite locations. For an even more unexpected moment, use Magic to shake your phone for random images from across scenes to discover a forgotten moment, milestone or celebration.
