I have been waiting for that message for 4 months. This is probably the longest I had to wait for a beta invite. So what is Friday?
Friday is a completely private and personal suite that helps you to build a digital story of your life. But unlike any other suite, friday does everything by itself, without you having to tap in every photo, checking or person you have come across in your life. It is like building a world which is about you, where you can browse through the timewarp, ask questions about your favorite moments, and see a lot of interesting and fun facts about you. It is about answers, Journal and analytics.
Friday will keep track of all the calls you make, receive and miss. Friday will track your e-mails and SMSs. It will also track where you were when you got the call/text. Here is my initial post about Friday.
After playing around with Friday for a few days, I have decided to put my experience for anyone who might be interested. Just so you know, I had to wait 4 months after registering for an invite. But, Friday has come a long way, and I am sure that those who sign-up now will get it much sooner. This is probably my one complaint about Friday, the long wait time. Do not think of this as a review, because I have a feeling that anything I say now would be irrelevant by the time the app is ready for public release. As this app is still in its beta phase, I won’t be listing out the bugs I find over here. This is the time for Dexetra to fix those bugs and improve the software.
Is this Android App for you?
Probably not, unless you are an information hoard. Do you keep all the mails you receive, even if you know you don’t need it? Do you categorize each of your email with multiple labels? Do you save your SMS and call logs, to your Gmail or Google Calender? If you do, then you are going to love this application.
Would you be using Friday, every day?
Very unlikely. The purpose of the app is to stay in the background, watching everything you do and record it for posterity. Your biographer will thank you. If your work is like mine, then you mind find it useful. Many events we consider as insignificant today, might become a milestone in your professional and personal life, and in my opinion, it is always better to have the information you never would need than not collect any information at all.

Do you still want to get Friday?
You can sign-up for an invite from Friday’s sign-up page.
The above link is a random referral link. Since I don’t need an invite, I can add your referral link included in the list of links. This will increase your referral count and might help you get Friday faster. Just add the details below. Drop a comment and share this post. This will lead to more people using your link to sign-up.
