I have a personal blog, but I don’t update it often because it’s an arduous task to upload individual photos and list down everything I did on a daily basis. I’m sure that sentiment is shared by many of my readers too. I know of plenty of people who would love to keep blogs but simply cannot afford to time to chart out all these little intricate details. But enter Heyday which promises great convenience.

Heyday is essentially an automated journal that publishes your life story automatically without you having to lift a finger. Besides the initial set up time, Heyday can be left to fend for itself. The app automatically pulls images taken by your iOS device along the day as well as periodically checks into your geographic location to create beautiful posts to chart your day.

And of course, the most beautiful part of Heyday lies in the fact that you don’t have to worry about formatting problems either. The app does a wonderful job in beautifully sorting out and arranging the items it puts up, creating an amazing experience for your readers.

Of course, if you do have something you wish to add, Heyday allows this through manual input of notes and whatnot which can also be customized to your whim and fancy.

A free app, I wish I had stumbled upon this earlier. Heyday is a much more convenient alternative to microblogging too as you can just dump your device in your pocket and it’ll do everything for you.
