Keep your photos in line

Lyve is a free system of apps that organizes all of the photos you have scattered across your computer, phone and tablet, and puts them together in a single place.

Lyve feed

The Lyve feed shows you all of the photos and videos in your collection and is a great way to browse your photos on the Lyve mobile apps.

At the top of the feed Lyve shows you older photos you took on this date.

Scroll through time

You can scroll quickly through the feed to jump back and forward in time. You'll see the app's colorful design when you do.

Albums by date

Everything is organized by date in Lyve, meaning all of your albums are grouped by the date you took the photos. Here, you can view everything in the album.

Compressed

The beauty of Lyve is that while you can view thousands of photos from your phone, they don't take up a ton of space on your device. That's because the images are compressed. You'll see a lower-resolution version when you tap an individual photo, and then the app will load a higher-quality version from the machine it's stored on.

Sources

To get the most out of Lyve, you connect any device where you take or store photos. You can see which devices are online in the app, which just means they are awake and connected to Lyve.

Delete, but keep

You can delete images from Lyve, but the photo files will remain on whichever device they are stored on.

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
