2017 Photo A Day Updated

The 1.01 update has just gone live on the App Store.  1.01 corrects a problem where the app crashed on iPhones / iPads running iOS 9.0.

There is an 1.1 update being submitted to Apple this evening to correct the following issues

  1. Eliminate a few typos
  2. Update support for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C devices
  3. Update support for the larger 12.9″ iPad Pro

Thanks to everyone who has gotten the app so far!  We had a great launch week.  Please spread the word to your friends and family and please, leave a review / rating in iTunes.  It helps spread word about the app.

If you don’t have the app, what are you waiting for?!?!?!?  🙂


If you are running iOS 10, the app includes 25 free iMessage Photo Stickers.



2017 Photo A Day is Out!

We’re back with our 2017 Photo A Day app on iOS!

The free download includes 20 Christmas photos, 12 Halloween Photos, and 25 iMessage Stickers  (for those of you running iOS 10).  To unlock the Photo A Day there is one In App Purchase, that’s over 400 photos!  One every day from November 1st 2016 through December 31st, 2017.   To make sure the photos look great on your iOS device, we have multiple versions of every photo so they are sized for your device.



With the launch of Rogue One, what better way to celebrate the launch of the 2017 App then with a collection of Star Wars photos?  The app at the top of this post was taken by Cory at the DisneyParksBlog meet-up for Rogue One last week.  At the special event at EPCOT that included a surprise appearance by Rogue One star Mads Mikkelson, Spaceship Earth was converted into the Death Star.  Twice during the event the Death Star even fired it’s deadly laser into the night sky!  Download the app to see Ben’s photo from the event showing the laser blast!


We couldn’t be happier to launch the app today.  It has been a ton of work to get the app updated.  After the struggles to get the 2015 / 2016 apps approved and onto the store it is such a relief to have all of our hard work payoff.  New for this year is a Photo Tips section.  We’ve included a button on the app that brings up a list of some of our more popular articles on taking photos in the park.  If you’re there and need a reminder for taking Dark Ride or Fireworks photo, then the app will have you covered.  There’s also a link to every How To article that we have ever posted on the blog.



So help us celebrate the launch of Rogue One and our launch of the 2017 App by going on to the store and getting it right away!


If you are going to be ordering from Amazon.com anyway, please consider following this link.  It doesn’t cost you anything but we earn a very small commission and it helps support the site.

Waiting for review……

UPDATED: Changed the video to a lower resolution so you can see it on screen better.


After taking 2015 and 2016 off, the Photo A Day app should be back for 2017.  After a long time updating the look and feel of the application, we finally have submitted the application for review at Apple.  Hopefully (fingers crossed) the app should be available on the store by the weekend.

The 2017 app will come in two forms…..first the app will include 20 Christmas Photos and 12 Halloween Photos.  The app will also include 25 iMessage Stickers for people running iOS 10.0 or later.  If you want the Photo a Day, you’ll need to buy a one time In App Purchase to unlock the photos.  Paid customers will get a photo from November 1st, 2016 through December 31st, 2017 for one low price.  The app also contains links to some of our more popular posts with tips on better Dark Ride Photos, better Fireworks shots, better Composition, etc.  That way if you’re in the park and need a quick reminder on one of our posts they will be right at your fingertips.

Here’s a quick look at the app in action.
