Document Your Life

Dayli will help you document your life through photos taken over time. You have probably seen those cool pieces on Facebook of a dad taking a photo per day for six years of his child, where you can watch them grow, how they change, and so on.

This app was designed for just that purpose so you can easily replicate to create your own piece. You may not yet be a parent, but you may want to document your garden blossoming, or your puppy growing.

Maybe even your kitten or your bird, but the idea is that you take a photo a day and the app will send you a notification so that you don’t forget.

This notification can be annoying too though, because sometimes it’ll go off when your child is asleep, or other times it’ll go off when you’re driving. Obviously a few sleeping photos are not a problem, but when there are repeated photos it’s a different matter.

More awake than asleep would be good. When it comes to plants, you’ll likely have to take some rainy photos, and you’ll have to plan the photos both when you’re not at work and when it’s still sunny out.

Other Features

Dayli provides guide lines in the app to help you line up the noses, keep the size consistent, and so on. This is handy for sure so you can keep some consistency in your video. When you’re ready, you set the photos to turn into a video that provides a fascinating time-lapse look back at what you have captured.

If you are taking personal photos that you don’t want to be easily accessed such as weight loss photos, you can add in a passcode to keep the app locked. You can also export the photos taken with the app, or import other photos into the app. I appreciate how flexible the app is and how easy it is to use.
