The Dream Team with a Dream!

Written by Daine Gostas

Two of them brothers, two of them best friends, and two of them family friends who became business partners, these are the faces behind our app LegaciLife and the company Legaci LLC. The idea of LegaciLife brought together our trio one day when my older brother Demetre Gostas texted yours truly. Demetre needed the number for my childhood best friend, Edward “Eddie” Atter, who at the time was attending the University of Pennsylvania for a BSE in Computer Science. I was attending the University of Montana for my BFA in Filmmaking at the time, so with my vast knowledge of artsy stuff and the small chance it could help in some way, I felt I should ask what all of this hullabaloo towards an app was about. What started as a simple question turned into an hour and half long phone call between my brother and I.

At the time of the phone call the idea was simple enough. Why not create an app the allows people to document their life, and all of the human connections made within it? Simple right? But how do we make it in a way that our users could use it for all of their memories and experiences, not just the ones they want to share on Facebook or Instagram? That’s where the idea for LegaciLife really started to present itself, and we came up with 3 problems and solutions to make it happen.

The texts before and after the phone call that created Legaci, or what is now LegaciLife!

#1. How do we let people document their lives while maintaining their privacy?

Ok, easy! We just create an app that gives users unlimited storage and allows them to post or publish pictures, videos, text, etc. to help them document their lives! We could even include hashtags to help them organize everything, or maybe even tags so they can organzine their memories by the people involved in them!

#2. If users can tag people in their memories, is there a way we could connect users to each other with those shared memories, without losing their privacy in the process?

Yes! We can just give the option to users to share their single memories with the people tagged in them. But we have to make sure that it’s only the people in the memories themselves; if we don’t then users might see other users’ memories without even being involved themselves… which would just make us a different version of Facebook.

#3. Unlimited storage to users? How do we pay for all of this? How do we do this without selling our users data thus maintaining their privacy?

Well it’s definitely possible, but I feel we could do this with a monthly subscription! Kind of like Hulu or Amazon, we provide our users with a certain amount of storage per month, with our free users getting the standard amount, while our paid users get to have more. That way those who don’t use the app very much could use it for free with their standard monthly storage allowance, while other users who use it more often could pay for more storage to be able to put more information in their app more often!

With those three problems solved, we had our idea, and Legaci LLC and its app, LegaciLife, was born. It’s been about 3 years since we first had that conversation, and with the beta just around the corner, it’s almost time to officially introduce ourselves to the world. With the work put in from all 3 of us, our interns, and the beta testers we will soon be introducing ourselves to, we may finally be able to pull this thing off. LegaciLife, a dream, may finally become a reality.
