What is oneye

oneye is a takeover of the legacy series 1 from the eyeos project. This new project is powered by the community around the web desktop eyeos 1. We feel responsible for further development of eyeos 1.9 featured as oneye 0.8.x. In addition new technologies get combined and a totally new designed framework will be released as oneye 0.9. You can log into this cloud using a desktop, a mobile phone or an iphone.
