Mylio Update: Version 3.0 Has Arrived!

Mylio Version 3.0 Released Nov 27th 2017

I am a Mylio-certified Photo Organizer, and I am continuing my love/hate relationship with Mylio. I have yet to test the upgrade. Mylio's info at https://mylio.com/support/whats-new/ announces, "..a brand new sync engine that's faster and more reliable." Yay!

If you'd to know more about Mylio, please read Mylio Introduction & Overview, on the Mylio page of my website. I have not yet updated the info to reflect the changes in version 3.0.

Sadly, their tradition of inconsistent terminology continues: Please decide, Mylio, is this an 'upgrade' or an 'update'? Just pick a term and stick with it. Please.

Mylio has tremendous potential! Mylio offers so much, but is incredibly user-UNfriendly. They need a technical writer to help them (preferably me). Clear wording matters!

Here's a quote from the 'what's new' page, "The new version of Mylio will not sync with the previous version of Mylio."
What they mean is: A device that has been updated to Mylio 3.0 will not not sync with a device running an earlier version of Mylio.

I am in the process of setting up Mylio for client. It really is the best solution for that client. I've asked her to let me configure everything because I don't want to subject her to the contradictory and unclear wording of both the app and the support info.

I've been told the support site will be re-written soon—by the same team that wrote the current support text. Hopefully they'll actually refer to the many pages of notes I've sent them.

I remain cautiously optimistic because Mylio has so many great features. Good Luck Mylio!
