Here we are. In 21 century. Surrounded by all kinds of people from different cultures and of course talking different languages. To speak with other nationalities we mostly choose English language. It is the easiest way.

UNESCO Mother language day

But can we say this also for mobile apps?

Is it really necessary and enough to make apps just for English speaking people?

We think there is a better way to deal with these questions. That's why we decided to promote linguistic, cultural diversity and of course multilingualism. 

Slowly, step by step, we translate our app into different languages. Today is UNESCO International Mother Language Day. We are celebrating it with Italian translation. Hooray. Here is our app in Italian version. 

"Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue."—from the United Nations International Mother Language Day

p.s: Sorry, but this post is written only in English :)

Smartphone cameras deeply changed photography. That's the fact. You don't need to have fancy camera or be an expert to take really inspiring shots. All you need is a camera on average smartphone. It is probably the most convenient camera that you can have. It is always in your pocket and it doesn't require any manual adjustments before you can capture precious photo moments. You must admit, a good photo is a good photo, regardless of the gear used to take it. So, we can simply say that smartphone masterpieces are quite easy to make.

But, is it really so simple? The answer would be 'yes' and 'no'. Camera phones have some strengths and weaknesses, that's way you should keep some things in mind. Here's how to squeeze the best quality photos out of your smartphone's camera.


One of the most important rule is to bring your camera as close to your subject as possible. Many cell phone cameras really start to shine when you bring them close enough. This is especially important for portraits - he closer you are, the more personal and detailed your shot will be.


Digital zoom is lower quality than an optical zoom. Although many smartphone camera offer a digital zoom function, it is not recommended to use it. When zooming you loose much of the fine details and the result is sucky picture. You should crop your image instead, even to about half of its size if needed. Many smartphones have 8-megapixels of resolution and sometimes more. That means you can crop substantially and still have plenty of resolution left for display.


Everyone wants to have unique photos. That's why painting your photos with the same filters that literally millions of other people are using, is the last thing you should do. If you want your images to be unique, don't exaggerate with "retro" filter effects and unnatural contrasts. Use one of editing apps instead and make some reasonable adjustments, like contrast, sharpness, and color temperature.


It's easy to take a great photo when you have plenty of light. But lighting conditions aren’t always as we would like them. However, It's essential that we work with light as much as possible otherwise we will be dissapointed. Flash is one of solutions, but not allways the best one. The problem with many smartphone flashes is that they don't actually, well, flash. So, what do you do in the dark, then?  Unfortunately, not much. Often, your best bet is to seek out another light source. Or you can combat the problem using a higher ISO.


When did you clean your cameraphone lens for the last time? Are there some fingerprints on it? What about dust, maybe even suncream? Make sure your lens is clean as a whistle before you start shooting. Otherwise your images will be milky, hazy or dark and won't look good at all. So give your camera a quick wipe with a soft cloth from time to time and your T-shirt will do OK too.


If you want to take an eye catching photo you can't avoid some basic rules of photography. You probably heard about them million times, but anyway. Rule of composition should be your top priority. Use the rule of thirds to get the subject into an ideal position, keep your your photo relatively simple, think about interesting perspective and try to take a photo from a different angle to make it interesting. But beside the rules please keep in mind one thing: choose your own style. Photography is about creativity after all, isn't it.


If you don't have a backup of your photos, it's like you don't have them at all. You never know what can happen to your phone. You can lose it, somebody may stole it, etc. So, it is very important to make backup of your precious memories regularly.To do that you should use Fylet Simple. It enables you to simply, directly and automatically transfer your photos from phone or tablet to computer.

Have fun taking beautiful photos with your phone! Enjoy downloading photos to your computer easy way!

Happy Fyleting!

Avoid skyhigh bills for mobile data roaming and still transfer photos on vacation. Check out three key tips and find out why Fylet is your friendly helper when you are on the road and loaded with photos.

It's summer again, so it's time to go on vacation. We like to travel. That means we go abroad. You probably also made precise plans where to go,  you probably packed your suitcases and calculate how much you are going to spend. But, did you consider cellular data roaming cost. Well, it is a bit cheaper in EU from 1st of July, that is true. But anyway. We are sure you won't let your phone at home so it could be still quite an issue.

Roaming charges too costly

During summer we often hear stories of massive mobile data roaming charges. We can read about  users and their skyhigh mobile bills just because they were browsing the internet or downloading a few files or email attachments. In many cases this is not far from truth, so you can really be worried about taking your smartphone or 3G-enabled tablet abroad with you.

While a lot of people are saying that roaming charges are too costly, keep in mind these 3 key tips to avoid high costs:
  1. Turn off data roaming and location services
  2. Use Wi-Fi for data transfer
  3. Use Fylet to offload your photos from smartphone to computer                                                                  

Fylet, your friendly helper when on the road

On the road I often catch myself in a situation where I have a lot of photos on my Samsung Galaxy S4. So I would like to first offload those photos to free up my phone and secondly to make backup copy in case I lose smarty but still keep the safe privacy.

With Fylet I don't have to worry about high data roaming charges. Why Fylet? The answer is quite simple: Fylet works differently, it is not cloud storage solution.

Cloud based solutions have to upload your photos from an Android smartphone or iPhone to the cloud - their servers. This is where your internet traffic is generated and data roaming charges come from. Most of them will then download photos from their servers to your second device, let's say your computer. Here is additional internet traffic and again high roaming charges. And the funny part is this will occur even if I have my computer and my phone 2 inches apart on the desk.

With Fylet we solved this anomaly by not sending pictures from the phone to any server. No. Fylet uses server just to authenticate you and your devices to make sure images get where you want them to. Your photos will never go to any server, they'll travel only from your phone directly to your computer. So when your devices are few inches apart photos will travel only that few inches using WiFi or wire network on your computer. This is why there are close to none data roaming charges involved when using Fylet.

Use case test 

We made real life test in EU where the roaming prices are bound by the European Commission to 0.45€ + VAT per megabyte for data downloads. We transferred 100 photos from a smartphone to computer firstly using Cloud sync solutions, and secondly using Fylet. Here's what we've got:

Cost for transferring 100 photos from a smartphone to computer
in data roaming can get up to 81€ without VAT with cloud based solutions

So, take care and don't let your smartphone run off with your wallet when you enjoy your holidays.

Enjoy your travels and happy Fyleting!

Wedding day. What a challenge! My sister and I were helping our good friend to prepare her wedding party. While she was dressing up we were decorating around her home and in the church, preparing the wedding car and putting all the other things together. Everything was so lovely. But, will she be satisfied with our masterpiece?

Suddenly we wanted her to see what we've done. She could tell us if it's OK or not and we could change some details while we were still there.

The easiest thing would be to snap a photo with a phone camera and send it to her. But there was a problem! She doesn't have a smart phone. Oops, what to do then? We were in a hurry. We didn't have time to open mailbox, attach picture, add a comment…

In that moment I decided to use Fylet. Luckily I installed Fylet on her computer when we were still at her place and it really came in handy. Can you imagine her, sitting patiently with curlers in her hair and checking photos on her computer to see what is going on? "Perfect", she said when she gave me a quick call.

But there was something that was worrying her. She wanted to know why there were only two trays of cakes waiting for wedding guests. "I ordered three in the bakery" she said. So we went back to the bakery, took one more tray, snapped a photo and the bride was calm again.

So, everything was under control. There was enough cakes, she knew exactly how the wedding car will look like with all that fancy bows, and when she came to the church she already knew where the flowers will stand. She was happy as can be.

That's what matters the most on the day like that!

And that's one of the reasons why I like to use Fylet. It's simple and quick.

Happy Fyleting!

Our team had fabulous spring holidays! It was nice to take some time out to relax. Last week we've been so much focused on turning out bug fixes and preparing market entry strategy that we really needed a break. One part of our team chose to go to inspiring Provence to discover true French joie de vivre. The other expedition decided for more active holidays. Rock climbing in Paklenica, Croatia was a big challenge.

But we weren't just wondering around with nothing to do. We all decided to join pleasure and work by testing Fylet in real life scenarios. That decision turned out to be the perfect way to polish Fylet’s user experience.

Charming Provence, gorgeous Paklenica

The opportunities for taking beautiful photos were endless, I don't even have to say that. What else is travelling through Provence other than enjoying in beautiful landscapes, admiring vibrant colors that enchanted so many painters, and being seduced by intense aromas and flavors. Blooming trees in Grasse, cobbled lanes in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, house facades in traditional colors everywhere, spirit of Cezanne, Renoir and other famous artists, wild horses of Camargue, ancient Arles, adorable marketplaces, delicious food and wine. Charming! 

Or climbing high on the rocks of Paklenica National Park which spreads over a coastal slope of the southern Velebit Mountain Range. When you wake up in a camp near the sea you can feel salt in the air. Just a minute latter you can already climb on a big wall of Anića Kuk. Your climbing partner who has your life on the rope is the only one you can trust. But imagine the feeling of freedom when you are in the middle of the wall in that amazing spot of nature. Gorgeous!

Smooth transfer...

So, you can imagine that our smartphones were overloaded with tons of photographs day after day. That could be a really big trouble, but not for us. Luckily Fylet was with us and it was taking care of our precious memories. Fylet was automatically sending all the photos we snapped to computers of our colleagues and family. And they were really amazed. “It was just like we were there with you”, they said. It is really nice to hear something like that, but all the things didn’t go so smooth. 

...and some troubles too

While we were eating our own dog food we must admit we had some troubles. Wi-Fi in some provencal hotels was so poor that we lost internet connection every 30 seconds. Arrrrgh! Of course nothing can work with that kind of network. And as the Fylet user I was not getting enough information what is going on. So, we’ll definitely add more informative notifications for the user.

Next interesting thing was that info screen was by far most opened page in the smart phone application. Probably that should be home screen for Fylet mobile app.

And the climbing expedition? There was a moment when they felt really, really lucky that they decided to test Fylet in Paklenica. Our developer Petra had her mobile in a pocket when she climbed high on the wall... and suddenly... her mobile felt down into the deep canyon! The phone was lost, but photos she snapped were not. In the morning when she was still in the camp she used Fylet and send all the pictures to her home computer.

Anyway,Fylet was really handy.

We hope it comes in handy during your next holiday too!

Old shoe-boxes with piles of your favorite photographs. Still remember those times? For sure, but things are totally different for quite some time. People have more and more photos which never end in romantic boxes. They are piled on computers and external discs.

One of the reasons we all have more and more photographs is that we can very easily snap them with our smart phones. I remember not so long ago you could saw everyone using cameras. Nowadays wherever I go I see we all widely use our smartphones. But this is where the troubles start. 

Tons of photos, tons of troubles

The more photos you have, the harder is to take care of them. Do you always have cable around to transfer tons of your memories? Do you remember to transfer photos from phone to computer regularly or only when phone complains it has no more free storage left to take new photo? 

I hate when I manage to connect phone to computer wirelessly but then I have to click several times for every photo to download it. And I am not the only one. A lot of people I talked to confirmed same unpleasant experiences. Are you among them?

Fylet offers you a solution

If you answer is 'yes', than you should give Fylet a try. It is a simple and safe way to transfer photos from your smart phone or tablet to computer. With Fylet you can forget cable. It works wirelessly. It works here, there, everywhere, even if devices are miles apart. With Fylet your photo transfer is hassle free. It is fully automated solution. There is no clicking to download your pictures.

But Fylet not only simplifies the transfer of photographs. Fylet also assures high level of privacy. It is not a cloud based solution, so your private photos will never be stored on any server. You'll have your memories stored only on your personal devices.

How does it work?

There are two parts of Fylet: the app running on your mobile phone or your tablet and a matching one on your computer. This enables direct communication between your devices. 

It works in two simple steps. Every user and device is authenticated and then the process of establishing direct link between your devices is initiated. In the background there are hi-tech networking stuff going on and it could take up to couple of minutes to create direct channel between your devices. But then photos will be transferred really fast. 

Let Fylet takes care of your memories! Try it now

We hope you'll enjoy it!
