Lifebook gives users a means to preserve their sweetest memories in print using beautifully handcrafted photo books, customized and ordered straight through their mobile app.
Based in Beirut, Lebanon, Lifebook offers users in the GCC region the opportunity to create their own photo albums using a beautifully-designed mobile app to then print with handcrafted leather covers at a very reasonable price. Lifebook is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Karim A. Wazzan, “Chief Technology Oxpecker”: My partner and I came up with Lifebook because we saw that there weren’t any quality photo printing options in the region. We live in Beirut, Lebanon, in the Middle East, and we do not have a service that prints your photos as easy as we would like it to be. So what we thought about doing is a service that helps you print, backup, organize and display photos right from your phone. With Lifebook, the user simply puts together a collection of photos and we craft and print an album for them. The albums are handcrafted, 11”x7” and come in a new color each month with rings for easy display.
Karim: I’ve been using Backendless for years. I used Backendless throughout my university projects and I used it through a lot of tests, little projects I’ve done, and it was great for all of that. So when we wanted to start the Lifebook app, it was like the default in my head that I’m definitely going to use Backendless because it’s gonna be the fastest way for me to get the app to market.
