The ustyme Team

ustyme was founded by a team of family-first entrepreneurs in 2012 who all intensely believed in the notion that deeper connections can be achieved through shared experiences of quality content. Members of the ustyme team recalled their own fond memories of time spent playing Gin Rummy on vacation with mom, playing Chess with dad after school or reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears with grandma at bed time. These collaborative memories fueled the passion to develop an easy-to-use platform that offers quality time spent with loved ones.

Turning screen time into "us time"

ustyme helps fill the gaps in time that come from not seeing one another in person and builds self-esteem. Research shows that quality time with loved ones, especially parents and grandparents, improves self-esteem, as does a sense of ownership. ustyme provides a platform for both, with the ability to build collections of books and games and share them with family and friends.

What a wonderful way to stay connected in a way that creates bonds and lasting  meaningful memories for all involved.  I have extended family who I adore, living too far away to see on a regular basis but still want to have my children and grand children connect with and share daily rituals like reading stories before bedtime.  This is perfect for our family, my sister has 3 kids and my daughter has 2 all around the ages so we can all connect, read to and with each other and play games. So now we have Great Grandparents and Grandparents, Parents, Aunts and Uncles, good family friends and all of our children bonding in a real way even when we are so far away.
