Launched in 2012, Dayframe was the first cloud-based photo frame utilizing popular photo sharing services including Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, Dropbox, Flickr, Twitter, 500px, and more to provide a ongoing slideshow of friends, family, and interests.

Dayframe was designed to automatically play when not using a device. Once set up, that’s it. Dayframe takes care of everything.

No check-ins • No remembering • Just set it and forget it.

Problem(s) we were trying to solve

family with phones

Our most important photos are locked behind the walled gardens of social networks. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to access these memories without contributing to phone addiction? See them in a photo frame IRL (in real life)?

recycled phones

While we’re at it, let’s use a dedicated, old tablet. Repurposing is far better than recycling.

Digital photo frames suck because they require a lot of hand-holding. We need something that can be set-up, left alone, and remain interesting for years, not minutes.
