The story behind myLike

Our world is colored with great places waiting to be discovered, full of intimate treasures and everyday necessities. But how can we find the places that really match our personal taste? How can we avoid disappointments, wasting time searching or being misguided by sources we do not know?

 

myLike is your personal assistant to find and organize great locations and services that matter to you. With myLike you can easily discover what your friends or trusted sources recommend and get honest and relevant insights anytime and anywhere. A single place to save your own myLikes and exchange them with the people you trust, if you want to.

 

We started creating myLike in 2014, a mobile platform that’s fun to use and will save you time discovering, saving and sharing the places you love. Please help us to improve myLike by testing the app and giving us feedback.

7 things you should know about myLike

  1. You can select the sources you trust most: You, your friends, groups or the whole myLike community.
