    10/10/2017 had been passed though. Does that mean it is rolling out?
    Can't wait for it!

    Yup! There was a slight delay but we are rolling it out today for Android.

    Our iOS App has seen significant improvement and our Android App is now being heavily worked on! We are also going to shift our attention to the desktop app very soon and introduce new organization features as well.

    Is there going to be an option for automatic album creation where it links toghether photos say all taken on the same day or ones it recognises as being the same place. That would be useful instead of manually selecting hundreds of photos.

    Yes! We were just discussing this last week. We have plans to add features that automatically create Suggested Albums.

    We are currently focusing on improving our current iOS/Android Apps, but after that we plan to dive into new feature development.

    At this time, I don't wish to give a false prediction. However, as we add new team members and improve development of our apps over the next month, we will have a better idea by mid-November.

    That's fine. I am loving how well it's working now compared to begin with so can't wait for all the other features to be up and running. Keep up the good work.

    @Phil +1. That trumps all other upcoming features for me personally.

    „We are going to keep this roadmap alive and it is our mission to be as transparent as possible to you!“

    What happened to this?

    No update or info for months. 😕

    You're completely right! We just updated the roadmap and we will continue to update it as we progress.

    When is the NAS backup going to be available?  I was pretty sure that used to be on the roadmap, but maybe that was just "backup to external drive/etc".  However, there isn't a date on that, is that on the near future roadmap?  That's something that is extremely important to me.

    Originally - two devices in separate locations were going to be able to synchronize/back each other up. What happened with this?

    @MattNash @SteveYoung

    Both of these feature requests are still in our roadmap, but they require significant development and at this time we cannot give a guaranteed timeline.

    Once we have a better idea of when they will be worked on, I will update this roadmap :)

    Wow! Seems like in the next 2-3 months all my big wishes will be fulfilled. Even the iPad app is on the roadmap now. Awesome! :)

    Edit: Nearly all! Remote backup is not on the roadmap anymore.

    I would like to see a slideshow based on

    - face
    - tags
    - dates
    - combination of these all

    so I can use monument as a modern picture frame. 

    instead of 1 picture of my partner (kids),  a new picture every x time based on the selected criteria on that device.

    i asked this before, I was told it was a very interesting feature yet it's not on the roadmap.

    We're excited to finish and present the dedicated iPad app in a few months. The view on the iPad will no longer be presented in iPhone aspect ratio (it will be scaled to fit the screen of the iPad).

    Remote backup (backing up to additional Monuments) is in our future roadmap, but there is no timeline for it.

    It is an interesting feature but we do not have enough resources on the team to tackle that project at this time. However, we haven't forgotten about it :)

    @hunter: please make choices like these visible on your roadmap.

    Thank you for the feedback! Currently, if it's not on this roadmap, then it is not planned for the near future.

    Only once we have made a decision and have made plans to develop a particular feature, will it show up in our roadmap.

    However, features such as slideshow (although not shown on the roadmap) are still in our long-term plans. We keep an internal record of all feature requests, prioritize accordingly, and then add them to the public roadmap.

    @hunter: I guess my feedback was not clear;

     

    My feedback was, please add to the roadmap the things you have decided to not do.
    make this visible.

    Please could you confirm ‘why’ backup to nas is no longer listed in the roadmap?

    It was the second stretch goal in the Kickstarter and why I wanted the device (having lost 10 years of wife’s photos i am in he dog house and need the added security).

    It also used to be in the roadmap with a date for expected completion.

    It is inappropriate for you to just drop it off and decide you are not working on it.  It is my opinion that something  like the iPad app is less important especially considering iOS 12 is here so the iPhoneesque display is no longer iPhone 4 sized, and also it was not in the roadmap to begin with.

    Please advise.

    Regards

    That is an excellent question! This roadmap is only displaying what we have planned for the next few months. NAS integration is still in our plans, but it requires extensive development.

    Unlike the iPad app (which our iOS developers can work on), NAS integration requires lengthy undivided attention of one of our other developers. However, that individual also has to work on firmware updates, bug fixes, and other key projects, which is why NAS development just isn't possible at present time.

    We currently are a very small team (but growing) and once our team is ready, it will be added to our public roadmap for everyone to follow!

    Could the roadmap please be updated?

    Some features marked for September are already available (e.g. manual tagging) while others are not (live photos, photo editing).
