Photos can be shared to certain groups that users can create, as well with just certain individuals with a really creative user interface!
 
"Sharing and saving your photos is a mess today. Social networks are too public and compresses your images. Email is inefficient and hard to search. Storage sites don’t organize them and it is more like putting them in a vault where you'll never see them again. Sherish is the first, all-in-one private photo app for your all of your life's most important moments," said Jared Brown, CTO of Sherish.
 
Don’t leave your photos in a mess today, download the Sherish app from the Apple App Store or check out Sherish.com
