OTTAWA – Oct. 26, 2016 – Kwilt, the maker of the Kwilt Personal Photo Platform, announced today the completion of a $1M Angel Funding Round.

The Kwilt photo stream platform gives developers the ability to offer users the fastest and easiest way to find and share any photo from any popular source to any app or service through a visual mobile, desktop or web interface as well as SDKs and an API.

We feel confident that Kwilt is rapidly becoming the standard method for consumers looking to easily find and share any of their photos throughout all of their collections”.

Kwilt photo sources include smartphone photos, popular social networks, cloud storage providers as well as connected-home devices such as NETGEAR routers.
