After a 6+ month slog to rebuild GreatAlbum with MVP2, we're finally relaunching our Private Beta today! As I in my July post, things have gone much differently during than expected in our transition from MVP1 to MVP2.  Some major changes have included:

  1. Rebuilt on top of Open Social
  2. Implemented the ability to import Google Photos... 
  3. And to organize clusters of photos into events with the click of a button
  4. Transitioned from Pantheon to AWS, due to some key Pantheon limitations
  5. Implemented a completely new user interface design

While we still have tons of bugs and feature gaps, we're excited to restart our Private Beta today and reengage with our most trusted users while we work feverishly to fix bugs and help our customers realize our dream!

red question markYou might have noticed that all this wonderful functionality described in What is GreatAlbum doesn't appear on this site. So where is it? 

The Answer: The GreatAlbum prototype quietly under development in a hidden site. Upcoming plans include:

Private Beta - We will be launching a Private Beta program in November with a select number of users to try out both the GreatAlbum site and the Help site and give us qualitative feedback. We anticipate spending a 2-3 months in Private Beta, slowly growing the number of users to a few hundred as we work out all the kinks.

Public Beta - Then hopefully in January or February 2021 we'll go into a Public Beta, where anyone can create an account and start using the Apps.
