The app links social networks with the Android camera to allow for offline use. This allows users to view their photos saved on Lightbox’s servers whenever they want.

The founders hope to make their startup a premiere app inventor team that rivals those on the West Coast. Tran was product manager of YouTube and Google Maps and now looks to bring his Google knowledge to London.
