I have been using this since day 1
Every single day I take 2-3 photos. After roughly 41 months, I have something that is absolutely spectacular. If you plan on doing the same, I have a few tips. Backup your data. Make backups of your backups, and then back those up too. Avoid taking photos in artificial light-natural light produces a more consistent/seamless result. If you are having difficultly aligning your shots, try standing facing a wall and hold your phone flush to the wall. When you first get going on this, you need to realize that it takes a few months before you have enough photos to produce a time lapse that you will be eager to show all of your friends. Patience and consistency.
Using Everyday for newborn photos
I am using Everyday for an admittedly non-prescribed use: photographing my newborn's growth everyday. As is no surprise, babies can't stay still so often the best time to shoot is when they are reclining or sideways.
However, Everyday has no portrait orientation lock if you attempt to hold your iphone looking down. Using the iPhone's own orientation lock does not fix it. Photos end up coming out sideways. Needs a portrait lock!
Other than that, UI is excellent and straightforward. If I had a wish list, it would be great if it could take a photo and then ask for gridlines so that it auto-crops and rotates. Would make it easier when babies are slightly askew and you need to take the photo yet again!
A great app, abandoned?
For almost three years, I doggedly maintained my photo-a-day habit, to the chagrin of my wife, coworkers and family. They're the fools, I thought! I will have a record of time's march. I will hold the essence of time in my hand, and be able to watch the days as seconds when I export my video.
Turns out, not so much.
I had to abandon my phone's original profile and settings after some hardware trouble. Pesky, but I figured I was safe, since I'm a regular backer upper. Redownload the app, import the old photos, et vióla. Should be no problem, but it is: the photos don't import according to the dates they were taken on, and something about the imports creates some kind corruption bc the app will crash and then never successfully reopen, unless you delete the app then reinstall... But then you're back at square one.
I contacted the developer on Twitter, and although he acknowledged my tweet, he hasn't offered any updates since this issue popped up.
I hope the bug is addressed. I wasn't kidding, I really do love capturing the march of time.
