Going through photo albums is a lot of fun for many of us who just want to have those old memories reignited. Most of these photos bring back good memories, while some which seemed embarrassing at the time will just look like good fun now. These photo albums, though, are comprised of memories from special events or days. What about the average day? Seems boring now, but how will we feel about these “normal and boring” days later on in our lives? Photo 365 sees to it that we do remember them.

The whole point of Photo 365 is to keep a collage of photos every day of the year, creating an album such that you have never seen before. The app basically requires you to take a photo everyday, and then it will be assigned to that day in the calendar, to be viewed in a monthly format. You can also choose to use a photo from your Photo library in your iPhone if you like. What photo you want stored in the app is completely up to you, weather it’s measuring yourself in the mirror, or your children growing up, or dishes you have cooked, or just with new people and places you have seen every day. A picture collection like this will always remain memorable.

The app itself is designed with easy colors and a simple interface to get the job done. You can share each day’s photo with friends and family via Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and, of course, email. Another way is to take a snapshot of a whole month and send that instead, but the slight pixelation when iPhone 4 screenshots are viewed on a big screen may not be the preferred method of choice for everyone.

Interestingly, if you have added a photo to Photo 365, you can then delete it from your Photo library as that specific picture is now saved in the app to avoid duplication of data. A cool little feature is the daily reminder, which you can set at five minute intervals during any hour. A small notification will popup on your main screen asking you to take a photo.

The great thing about Photo 365 is that it works fast, has a smooth interface, and it’s very easy to share photos over multiple mediums within the app. For the price, Photo 365 is one of the most exciting and interactive photo albums ever, making it our App of the Week.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
