Memory is a fuzzy thing and a year goes by so fast that we easily forget events that happened, so being able to easily document a photo a day allows us to reflect back on the year and see what is important in our lives. Since mobile phones have become an extension of the body, the 365 android app will allow a person to easily track and share their photos with a simple user-interface that reminds them to take a photo for the day and upload it to their 365 album. The gallery-like interface has a slot for each calendar day allowing the user to set their photo for the day and upload it online. The time of the reminder can be set and only sends out a reminder (in the notification bar) if the day slot hasn’t been filled. A dialog pops-up that allows the user to take a photo (launching the user’s external camera app) or allows them to select a photo from that day. Functionality is key to making the 365 experience easier and more enjoyable.
