Skylines organizes the world’s real-time photos with love from the heart of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The platform indexes over 5 million photos a day sent through services Twitter, Instagram, Twitpic, Yfrog and Lockerz. Launched in August 2012, the Skylines widget is the start-up's first product. Now every single website can show thousands of relevant live photos to its audience.
Skylines was launched by founder Michiel Frackers and CEO Martijn Pannevis during TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2011 where it was the only European finalist. As a winner of the Dutch Vodafone Mobile Clicks 2011, Skylines was also one of the seven finalists at the worldwide Vodafone competition in 2011.
