Before You wants to make family storytelling simple and easy. Why? Because it’s been shown to be the single best predictor of a child’s happiness and emotional well-being.

How does Before You work?

Before You is an iOS app designed to help you collect your family stories - the legends and everyday moments - and see them all on a custom-tailored timeline while preserving them for future generations.

And then what?

Before You is designed to be family-friendly, so your children can participate in viewing your stories interactively. Imagine that - family storytelling that feels like a favorite bedtime story.

How am I going to find the time for this?

Before You knows you're busy - we get it! That's why we've created guided story prompts to help you tell your stories when you have a moment or two in your day.
