LifePath iBoard Press Release - June 2, 2015
New LifePath iBoard® Allows Families to Easily Create, Share and Preserve the Life History of its Loved Ones
Free Digital App Can Be Download Starting Today in the Apple Store and in the Google Play Store
PENNINGTON NJ – June 2, 2015 – Gone are the days when storing family photos in shoeboxes, drawers and photo albums was the norm and welcome to the new digital world of the LifePath iBoard® which had its debut today as the latest user-friendly digital app that provides families with an easy and fun-filled way of creating, sharing and preserving the life history of its family and loved ones. Gone are the worries that your photo albums might be stolen, lost or destroyed in a flood or fire, denying your children, grandchildren and other family members years down the road the rare opportunity to share those memories.
According to Christopher Gentile, founder and CEO of iBoard Incorporated, the new app has been created to meet the needs of today’s high tech digital society where almost everyone uses a Smartphone, tablet, or web browser on a desktop or laptop computer. “Our mission is to inspire humanity to create, preserve and share their personal legacy, one LifePath at a time, and thanks to websites like Ancestry.com and television shows that explore the family histories of celebrities and other public figures, there is greater interest than ever before in researching and discovering the secrets and mysteries hanging on the branches of one’s family tree,” he says. “In the past before digital cameras, selfies and mini video cameras, photo taking was limited as camera rolls had a maximum of 36 photos. Today, digital and smartphone cameras make it easier for people of all ages to take and preserve a ton of photographs and video clips of loved ones, special occasions and vacation trips and display them for other family members and select friends almost instantly. And unlike Facebook, Instagram and other social media which is displayed (at best) in a limited time-line fashion and for almost everyone to see, the LifePath iBoard displays and stores your memories in a chronological organized fashion where life-events and meaningful moments can be highlighted and prioritized, which only the LifePath creator controls, and allows only those with appropriate access codes to visit and revisit those pictorial and video memories on demand.”
The LifePath iBoard App is free and can now be downloaded by the general public in the Apple Store at (http://lifepathiboard.com/apple) as well as in the Google Play Store at (http://lifepathiboard.com/google). In addition, the official web site for LifePath iBoard is now up and running at http://lifepathiboard.com/.
How does it work? The LifePath iBoard is available on mobile phones, tablets and in web browsers for your laptops and desktop computers, providing you with full mobility to create, maintain and share the meaningful moments and events in the lives of the people you love. A LifePath is the chronological history of these meaningful moments or events in a person's life. LifePath Events can be recorded simply with a title and date, or they may include the time and place of the event and a full description or story with photos and videos LifePath Albums can be created by selecting events from an existing LifePath which can then be privately shared with others. An Album may include all or any number of events from a person's LifePath, and you can create as many Albums from a single LifePath as you wish. LifePaths can be created by a single person, or they can be coauthored by multiple people.
What are the benefits of LifePath? There are many benefits that the LifePath iBoard will bring to you and your family. As you create the LifePaths for your loved ones, you will not only start to record information that will be passed down to future generations, but you will also find out things that you never knew about your family. Knowing that your photos, videos and most meaningful memories are safely stored and backed up, will bring a sense of security to your life. The real-time recording and sharing of loved ones lives will help your family to be more connected, and experience each other’s’ lives even if they are far apart. LifePath is also an effective tool for loved ones suffering from varying degrees of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, as a LifePath can be a digital tool that can bring a loved one back to the memories of the past, while letting them see where they are at the moment.
