App test: Kiliaro – Storage and sharing of photos


There is no shortage of cloud storage services, and many of them allow you to automatically upload photos to the cloud, but Swedish Kiliaro has some unique social features.

The price for the premium service is SEK 19 a month. Then you can store unlimited images and videos in full resolution, and you can access them regardless of device. There is also a free version of the service, but Kiliaro does not state what restrictions it has, but it can be assumed that there are restrictions in resolution, number of images and number of connected devices. The free version is in any case free from advertising. The price for the Premium version can still be said to be really good compared to other cloud storage services.

You can choose to have your mobile photos uploaded automatically, whether they are to be uploaded via mobile data or just wifi, and you can browse the gallery. You can delete images locally and they remain in the cloud, or vice versa. You can create albums to sort your photos. All this is familiar from other image storage services, and the Kiliaro user interface is minimalist and clear.

What makes Kiliaro a little more unusual is how to share photos with your contacts. Then you must first have contacts of course. In order for the contacts to appear in the app, they must first of course have a Kiliaro account themselves, and you must have them in your address book on your mobile. I struggle with the latter until after a couple of attempts I realize that the important information is that they are stored with the telephone number that you entered when you registered that you want to activate sharing.

If these conditions are met, the contact appears automatically in the Kiliaro app. You can set contacts as favorites, and they will automatically receive pictures that you choose to share in their picture stream. The image stream shows all the images shared with you, regardless of which of your contacts shared them. Here you can also add comments on the pictures, and respond to the comments. The image stream can thus become a kind of social media feed for your friends.

Kiliaro is happy to push for the automatic division function. If you switch it on, it is activated for your favorite contacts for three hours, after which it is switched off automatically. During that time, they get part of the images you upload to Kiliaro automatically and immediately (according to the company, the actual image sharing goes in milliseconds). If you, in turn, have turned on automatic uploading of photos, this means that your friends will receive your photos you take immediately when you take them in the next few hours. Kiliaro gives as an example of use that you jointly share photos of a party while it is going on.

Every time you get a picture and every time a picture is commented on, you get a notification, so there is a serious risk that Kiliaro contributes seriously to the notification fatigue if you are many who share pictures, so it feels like you want to use this feature with some caution.

Of course, Kiliaro has the same problem as all other new social services: to enjoy the features, you need to persuade your family and friends to sign up for another service on the Internet. Even if you are not interested in the social features, Kiliaro feels like an interesting alternative for backing up your photos in the cloud.
