Tomorrow, the Day One iPhone app (US$ 4.99) is getting a huge upgrade and today Paul Mayne and the Day One group revealed a vital part of that update– Release.
Just what Release enables The first day users do is take chosen journal entries and post them to a private web site. That site is held at http://dayone.me and the web address for a posted access is given just to the The first day user and individuals that the individual desires to share it with. That distinction is essential to me as a The first day individual: I utilize the application on a virtually everyday basis to keep a personal journal, and there are many of my access that I do not wish to share openly.
For those of you who recognize with the Day One iPhone app, you’ll find a new thing in the list that commonly reveals a count of articles, photos, tags, and so on. That brand-new item? Published. A tap on that button shows simply the things that you have opted to share to the Publish site. The very first time you utilize Day One to send out an entry to Publish, you’ll be asked to establish a free account.
Those access are identified with whatever information you have opted to contribute to your typical Day One entries– points like the time and day, “gold star” for unique celebrations, weather condition, and task. Yes, The first day makes usage of the activity data saved on your iPhone 5s and can be used as an exclusive– or now public– activity tracker.
Once you’ve logged into the Publish website, you view a rather plain site (view image above) that concentrates on your content. There’s a place for a profile presenting your name, e-mail address (I’m not fond of that function …), a brief bio, and a connected to any other web site you’re connected with. An additional food selection link on the website factors to a list of your published entries, while a 3rd shows your linked social network accounts. Right now, Release assistances Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, with additional ahead.
Just what behaves is that with a single tap, you can release your entries not only to your Day One account and the Publish site, however to all of your social networks as well. The social network entries consist of a web link to the specific Publish internet site page so your followers could read a complete blog post. Below those Publish pages are stats on just how lots of people have seen the page, retweeted or favorited your tweet, etc.
The upgrade will certainly be available for iPhone tomorrow, and transforms Day One from a personal diary into an extremely user friendly blogging device also. For me, that could mean that I’ll lastly launch an individual blog once again.
