About CueBack

The best platform to reminisce on.

About CueBack

Throughout history, all cultures have passed down wisdom and knowledge from generation to generation through storytelling–not tweets and memes. The technology may have changed, but people haven’t. The human need to tell stories, share experiences, and learn together is in our DNA.

We founded CueBack with these principles in mind. We want to help all people share their stories, memories, and experiences safely, securely, and confidentially.

CueBack mimics how we tell and share stories and memories in real life. It was built in consultation with psychology professors and leverages the latest academic research on reminiscing, nostalgia, and memory.

CueBack harnesses the synergy between scientific research, technology, and our natural desire to reminisce, to deliver the world’s leading platform for digital storytelling.

“As we get older, we have more memories worth looking back on, but they become harder to recall,” says co-founder and CEO Arnie Papp. “We created CueBack so that my family and friends could collaborate to preserve and share our stories.”

“Now we’ve opened up CueBack to you.”
