What is the history and popularity of the app?

During February of 2009, Jeffrey Tinsley released the My Life application. This came about after the Reunion and Wink websites merged together four months earlier. The resulting application has thrived and accumulated over 60 million member accounts. The combination of social elements each original website offered was retained, and helped create the My Life users know today. The focus remains on helping individuals connect and find people from all over the world that are somehow related to them, through family, friends or employment.

What are the differences to other apps?

The ability to search multiple resources with a single application makes My Life so unique. Plus, the application features social networking aspects that allow users to create profiles and find out who is looking for them. Despite this, the application also seems to be lacking in originality. While My Life does its job well, there are so many free options out here that can be used without the monthly subscription fee. The trade off is those free resources require more legwork and organization than using My Life does.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

My Life offers an attractive, modernized graphic design with rounded corners and bold color schemes. The result is a pleasant combination of effects that is easy to navigate. Choose the most fitting tab and use the search fields that appear, tailored to the specified type of search listed on the tab. My Life profiles can be updated and information on who has completed searches for specific profiles can also be reviewed. The My Life application certainly streamlines the people searching process, although it can’t help but feel stuck in the shadows of social networking and internet search engines.

How does the registration process work?

The registration process is relatively simple. Click the sign up link and fill out the box that appears. The information requested includes the basic name and email address contact details as well as gender, zip code and date of birth. After that, you can choose your payment plan package or opt for a free limited access account. Searching can begin immediately after account creation.

What does it cost to use the application?

My Life offers an attractive monthly membership rate of under $10 per month. There are multiple month packages that cost less for those who wish to commit to a longer membership. The three month package takes the rate down to about $7 a month while a six month membership is about $6 per month. The twelve month package is the most cost effective for those who really wish to commit to the application, with a humble $5 per month rate. Every paying user gets the same unlimited access regardless of which payment plan they choose.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Busy individuals who have little spare time to can really appreciate the convenience of My Life. Users searching for loved ones, old friends and colleagues will find this application very useful in narrowing down potential resources. My Life offers a service to anyone who is searching for someone they have lost connection with over the months or years as well as a way to meet new people on a personal level. This is also a very low key way to get back in touch without committing to an in-person meeting or phone call.
