Ukrainian company creates app that is to boost your mobile's work

A Kyiv (Kiev)-based startup has just launched a media content optimization solution for mobile applications called ‘Pixpie', according to the Internet portal Ukraine Digital News.

 By speeding up content loading, this technology delivers pictures "2-4 times faster than typical content delivery networks" (CDN), the startup claims.

In addition, Pixpie, which handles storage of app content, helps mobile app developers offload their servers and improve server performance. App developers may also expect "simplified media management" thanks to Pixpie's CMS solution, while various effects can be applied to images (such as blur, rounded corners, and many others).

"Your content is stored in a secure and protected way. We take care about your data privacy," the young company promises.

App users, on their side, will benefit from faster media content loading, increased battery life, improved app performance, and reduced web traffic consumption, says Pixpie.

Pixpie was created in October last year by Dmitry Osipa, Vladimir Usychenko and Valeriy Goryachkin. In April, the startup came first at the final selection stage of miniWARP Ukraine, an acceleration program held in Kyiv by Deutsche Telekom and the Polish accelerator hub:raum.
