Dayre – joining up the dots on microblogging

Have you always wanted to start a blog but just don’t have the time or enthusiasm to sit down at your computer every day? Maybe you’re a Twitter addict (*ahem*) but wish there was space to say more or that your incredibly witty and thought-provoking tweets wouldn’t keep disappearing into the cyber-ether after about 27 seconds.

If either of these sound like you, or you’re just the kind of person that likes to share, then the new Dayre app could be for you.

The principle is simple – every day you add photos, videos, text (and even stickers!) to your profile using your phone. It’s quick and easy and you can do it wherever you are. At the end of the day Dayre takes all of your bite-sized chunks of genius and hilarity and turns it into one post about your day.


I am one of 30 UK bloggers chosen to be an Alpha-Seeder for the launch of Dayre, which sounds terribly exciting and possibly a little dangerous, like I may at some point be expected to donate some eggs in a ‘post-apocalypse regeneration of the human race’ scenario. I suspect though that the egg donation aspect is purely in my slightly strange imagination, as the brief only talks about trialling the product for six weeks and exploring its features. Being an Alpha-Seeder also has a competitive element, which you know I love – the one of us with the most followers after six weeks wins a prize! Yay!

Dayre is totally free to download for Apple or Android phones so if it sounds like something you might be interested in (even if just to follow other people rather than add your own content) then please do download it, look me up and follow me as I put it to the test in the run up to Christmas. I’m pretty excited about it as an idea and am looking forward to seeing what it can do.


You can also connect with Dayre on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook if you want to find out more about the app as it develops over the coming months.

    Was looking forward to trying it out but it’s not available on my phone. Will have to try on our tablet later.

    I downloaded this app last night, and I must that I’m pretty impressed with it overall.
    I can’t post multiple pictures in a single update though. Other than that, it’s all good! :)
