UPDATED:  @HeyDay Photo App Review

*URGENT UPDATE*:

For all users of the heyday app... The creators ditched this creation. The owner was just featured in a fortune.com article. He’s just picked up, left behind, leaving NO NOTICE NO RESPONSE on ANY Social Media Accounts, regarding this fact. He’s picked up a new giant idea, and just walked away… All servers containing our FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHYS, NOTEs with THOUSANDS of Memories we took time to Write Save and share so that we could have them FOREVER, to NEVER be FORGOTTEN…. All Gone.

Just gone.

No answers. Tweeted, Instagramed, face booked, and commented everywhere I could:  NO RESPONSE. I even messaged Heyday’s every person tagged in his Instagram account pictures. Website: GONE. We need to get togethe to address this and I have started the process through Apple Support via their Twitter account. 
So I DO NOT RECCOMMEND THIS APP! I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY APP MADE BY THE CREATORS OF THIS APP!

ALSO, in closing, I am trying to reach out to as many Heyday App Users as possible, and gathering names and then continuing to keep trying to reach the x owners for CLARITY ANSWERS AND ASSURITY as to WHAT happens now? Where are our photos? How do I know you won’t use my photos in any dishonest manners? WHO does have access to our photos and memorable moment so? 

WHY? 

WHY?

WHY ? WHY, were we NOT given the opportunity to write down, re-download, get back, ALL OF OUR MOMENTS AND PHOTOS FIRST, before you (extremely dishonestly) just disappeared? NO NOTICE on your website, NO Posts on your instagram? Your facebook? NOT EVEN A GENERAL EMAIL sent to your ongoing Customers?!?! HOW could you do that? WHAT will we do now? 

Where are our Notes? Why would we Not be given some kind of notice?…. 

Many other apps have done and DO, out of RESPECT for THEIR customers they’ve stored their PHOTO Memories of, for YEARS.   ESPECIALLY when the service that’s provided, INVOLVES FAMILIES photos, and life memories, moments that will never be brought back again, not ever, of real lives, of their unique experiences!…. AND, I am both disgusted, and I am committed to finding ANSWERS

Please leave a comment or go through my Contact Page to leave your name, email address, and maybe your Twitter and Instagram names so that I can message and tag you further, when and, If I figure out what happens next, with our photos and notes contained within the @Heyday app –that is just no longer useable now. Just fell off the planet I guess. Please be patient as I do receive a lot of emails via my blog.

THANK YOU SINCERELY, Jeanine

A quick photo app review for you before the holidays really begin! 

For those of you that have been following me for sometime, especially HERE on My Instagram, you know I LOVE a great photo effect and photo storage (Apple iTunes) App!

This specific one I wanted to share right away (without editing or thought) because, it will be thee perfect addition to your iPhone camera for Christmas time!

If you’re travelling around to families houses, from one town to another, you will find this app absolutely perfect for your hectic schedule. I am a pro at that, trust me here…

From indoors to outdoors, here’s our latest “Saturday Afternoon”…

I have yet to find an app I appreciate more. Now that being said, I do love my other photo effect apps for playing with colour, edits, and effects but, this app is different.

First, its called
“Heyday – Journaling. Reimagined.” created by “Hey, Inc.”

In my personal experience, this app is better than iPhoto, Instagram(<–follow me there;); or any photo storage type app I have purchased through Apple, iTunes AppStore.

An intuitive, organzied, systematic photo storage app. All you do, is take the photo, leave the rest, up to the app…

In the HeyDay the app:
Stores all photos taken by date, time, sequence. Also, labels each with its time frame ie-“Sunday Afternoon” to separate, “Sunday Evening”.

Arranges, and or re-arranges each photo collage or section the app itself creates for you.

Best Features:

A-  Easy date storage for remembering when photo was taken precisely.

B-  With the added option for you to socially share each of these sectioned and timed collages. (Through Facebook and beyond). 

C-  While enjoying a look at the gorgeous layouts the Heyday app creates for you, go into each photo, change its position, drag and remove one you dont like, or “add/swap” the images you prefer!

D-  Ok, I do not personally use this feature mainly because we don’t travel very far as we used to, without a vehicle of our own, the Location Services! Turn these on and always be able to share with the children exactly who’s house you were celebrating at for turkey. Skip the kids arguments and turn ON your location services within the app itself. 

On top of that, one great shot just a bit too dark, sharp, or not on the images focal point, tap it and readjust its positioning. Chose from excellent photo effect filters for the perfect result; which are already included in the download!

Brings me to the Best Part:

Affordable price, and No hidden “in-app purchases” required to buy the photo effect filters and best qualities. All around the best holiday photo app for the organized, digital, photo taking Mom.

…or wait is that disorganized rushing Mom whom has no time to re-organize photos? 

Yep! That’s Me! 

I realize that our camera rolls now provide this type of info. However I don’t remembering seeing the photos by time nor with such simple good looking aesthetics either. I’d like to remind you as well for those whom love to share some photos socially once in a while, the camera roll does not offer an already well-crafted collage of your photos in various filters effect options. 

So there! 

Go get your Heyday and Hey! Enjoy your day! 

“Happy Holidays, eh?” :D

UPDATED

In closing, I will be very careful, research more, and probably won’t actually download any “new” photo Journalling apps–thanks to this experience with @Heyday … I do not regret easily, but this one I do. In my downloading and Apple purchase history, I have  downloaded about 1,200 apps in total:  this is the first experience of this kind. Hopefully the last. Even though I have lost money on crappy apps, I’ve let it go a lot faster. I didn’t even bother writing bad reviews! I could not even tell you their names. This one will stick with me for quite some time. It was four years plus of our lives in photos. 

Thanks  for the Life Lesson in Technology department Chen. Someday I hope you come back down from your new “Stolen” high —

(“Stolen” is Chen’s newest highly successful gaming app appropriately named after it follows his dropping off the world from his heyday app) to give back to the little people whom supported you through Heyday

Thanks,

Jaynine
