FYI App

  • FYI stands for "Focus Your Ideas" and it's a productivity tool designed to serve the creative community and beyond. FYI is an all-encompassing tool for the ones who drive culture forward.


    On our app, you can:
    • ORGANIZE your creative work into Projects
    • GENERATE CONTENT with FYI.Al, your creative copilot
    • CHAT with collaborators and team members
    • SHARE photos, videos, audio files, docs, and more
    • MAKE & RECEIVE video calls while sharing content on the screen
    • SCHEDULE EVENTS with FYI calendar
    • SECURE YOUR DATA with the most advanced end-to-end encryption
    • PRESENT your work in beautiful, interactive layouts - ALL IN ONE APP

    You can use FYI to:

    BUILD PROJECTS. Organize your work into Projects by adding photos, videos, documents, or any assets you want to keep track of or manage. A Project can be a design portfolio, a pitch deck, a collaborative workspace, or even your personal archives. Share Projects with your team and assign editor roles. Control access settings to make your Projects private or public. Then, use Projects as a new way of sharing content with the world.


    TURBOCHARGE YOUR CREATIVITY with FYI.AI. Ask FYI.Al to draft stories, song lyrics, product descriptions, marketing copy, or any written content - and see the results within seconds. Give it super-contextual feedback to fine-tune your ideas. You can riff with FYI.Al naturally like a member of your own creative team. With FYI.Al, you can ideate faster than ever before and turbocharge your creative output.


    MAKE "CONTENT CALLS" TO STAY IN SYNC WITH YOUR TEAM Launch audio or video calls with up to 8 participants from any piece of media content within the app. Use "SYNC MODE" to control the screen for other viewers, and have them synced with your every move as you collaborate. Use Content Calls for working sessions with your team, give interactive presentations, or even turn group calls into album listening parties.


    ACCESS A DEEPER CALL HISTORY Ever been presented with a deck on a conference call, only to lose it after the call ends? Not with FYI- your app automatically saves all files shared on a call in your private history, so you can access them again any time. Just tap on a "CALL CARD" in your chat thread, or access it from your call logs. No need to ever send a follow-up message for that missing pitch, mp3 or doc!


    SECURE YOUR DATA. As a creative, your content is your livelihood, and it deserves the utmost protection. Everything on FYI including chats, projects, and calls is encrypted using ECDSA and ECDHE, the same cryptography methods used in securing blockchain transactions. ONLY YOU have access to your private key - no one else, not even FYI.


    FOCUS YOUR IDEAS FYI empowers teams to stay focused and be more productive in a remote modern society. We build features to make every user a power user. Voice notes are transcribed, searchable and interactive. Send messages in any language, and we'll translate it for you. Never lose track of important information.
