7dayz is a new sharing app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod. As the name implies, the app is targeted at those who like to keep up with what’s trending. Its purpose is to consolidate the streams of those you follow as well as streams from places near you and stories trending globally and pull it all together into your own custom stream.
Using the App
The user can enhance the basic visual story and turn it into a timeless memory of their life’s journey by programming 7dayz to connect their special events, people, and places automatically.
Some of the things users can do with this app include:
• Keep up with the stories that have been trending over the past week
• Pull your life experiences and those of your friends together chronologically like a photo stream photo book
• Add details to the photo stream
• Improve images with the app’s easy editing tools to give your stories a professional look
• Share your stories with people nearby when they are picked up by someone else’s app
7dayz allows you to “scrapbook” your photo stream, capturing your life and what’s going on in the world around you chronologically.
The photo editing tools that come with 7 dayz are similar to other standard photo editing programs. You can tag your friends and add where the photo was taken or other important details to make the visual story complete. The creators of the app have predefined more than 50 categories (like family, pets, or friends) you can choose from to organise your photos.
One exciting option is the “place” feature. If you have attached a place to your picture and you have chosen to access pictures from other users, you can combine their photos with yours for a broader visual effect.
Small Business Marketing
I think this app would make a great local marketing tool for small businesses. I recently spent a great deal of time helping a friend try to gain more exposure locally using her website. With this app, she could have put her sales into the local stream and reached out to her neighbours.
If you have some businesses nearby that you would like to hear from when they are having sales, you might spread the word by going to each business and sharing how the app could help you hear about their specials. Since the business would also benefit from the business it might bring in, they just might sign up.
7dayz has come up with a great idea for customizing trending stories into a unique stream containing highlights of your life. It’s like having your own private photographer following your every move, documenting your memories for you. If you get your family and friends to join in, all of your memories will be connected and preserved together. Adding the tags and details right away avoids the problem of old photos that no one ever identified. If you have some businesses nearby that you would like to hear from when they are having sales, you might spread the word by going to each business and sharing how the app could help you learn about their specials. Since the business would also benefit from the app, they just might sign up.
Great idea, 7days!
