Remember the guy who took a picture of himself every day for six years and turned it into a video that went viral with over 18 million views? That guy was names Noah Kalina and he has teamed up with a few other people to create a new iPhone app that lets you make a video like his. The app, called Everyday, reminds you to take a picture of yourself every day, helps you line up your face in the right position and turns your picture series into a movie. Read on to find out more.
Before we get into how the app works, check out Noah’s original video, ‘Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 6 years’ below. You can also check out a bunch of similar videos in our post, ‘Growing Up: 10 Beautiful Time-Lapse Videos Of People’.
So how does the Everyday app work? It’s quite simple actually. An explanation at Everyday-App.com explains, “Take a picture of yourself. Every day. Set reminders. Get into the habit. The more pictures you have, the better your Everyday app will be.” To help make sure your time lapse movie turns out just right, the app provides an adjustable grid that you can customize to match up with your eyes and mouth, or you can use an overlay of the last picture you took. You can publish your daily photos to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr.
After you’ve taken a nice series of pictures (it could take a good year or more to start seeing nice results), you can use the Everyday app to turn your photos into a great time-lapse video of your face. Check out the video demo below to find out more.
In addition to Noah Kalina, Adam Lisagor, Oliver White and William Wilkinson collaborated on Everyday. You can follow them on Twitter. The app is on sale in the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
The Everyday app is the first app that really makes me wish I had an iPhone. I’ve always been grateful that I haven’t been sucked in to Angry Birds and the other time-wasting apps that are going around. But this app seems genuinely awesome and worthwhile. What do you think of it? If you have an iPhone, do you think you’ll be using the Everyday app?
