If you’ve ever loved scrapbooking, automatic music scrobbling with Last.fm, story-making through Storify or Memolane, or creating your lifestream you will love the new application by Evertale. Evertale is a new way to create a scrapbook-like story of your life. It uses information gathered automatically from your phone to generate cohesive memories of your travels, such as your music, photos and location.
As Evertale works automatically, once you sign up there’s nothing for you to do except live your life. When you want to relive or share your memories they are all collected for you and ready to view in a way that really makes sense.
How Evertale Works
All you need to do is log into Evertale with Facebook, download the mobile application, enter the account connection code given to you by the website into the mobile application and you’re set. It needs to be done in this order so that your account is linked correctly. If you lose your code you can get access through the Evertale website under “settings”.
Evertale aims to map your life’s journey using automatically collected data from your phone, such as photos, location and music. It is the self-writing scrapbook of your real life. It doesn’t back-date information, so you will only build your scrapbook starting from when you signed up for the Evertale service.
You choose how much information to give Evertale, including call details and text messages. They also claim to have decent route tracking without the use of GPS, so this application will not need to access your phone’s GPS all the time. All information collected by Evertale is kept in a private scrapbook just for you.
You can also set in the Android application whether to limit uploads while on 3G service or roaming internationally. By default, you won’t upload while using international roaming.
As the Evertale application works seamlessly in the background, there’s nothing more you need to do there. From now on, you just leave the application on your phone and access Evertale via the website.
When you revisit Evertale in the future, you have a private collection of your activities to view. You can look at your travels via the map or click on a day and see what you were doing.
Evertale automatically notes when you go somewhere interesting and out of the ordinary and marks the event with a yellow bar on the calendar for you for easy access. You can also mark dates in the calendar yourself.
When you click on a day, you can see the highlights of the day, a map of your day, add a note anywhere on your day’s route, and easily share the day’s map and highlights with your friends. If your friends also use Evertale it will automatically note when you spend time with each other. When sharing your day’s highlights, you can choose to omit any part of it from the record, such as phone calls, messages, who you met, notes and photos.
