★ Interactive Chromecast Slideshow

Dayframe 2.0 is the premiere photo viewer / slideshow app for Chromecast. Be the first to play photos, albums, photostreams, and playlists of albums and photostreams on your HDTV.

We wanted to make something you could touch and feel. So it's not just play and sit back - it's interactive! You can control what's playing on Chromecast by swiping forwards and backwards, zoom to fit or fill, pause, shuffle, and even like photos.

★ All of Your Photos in One Place

Dayframe works with your favorite photo sharing services to provide a ongoing slideshow of friends, family, and interests. Browse and share photos between Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, Dropbox, Flickr, Twitter, 500px, and more.

★ Ultimate Photo Frame

Put your device on a stand and let it play an endless stream of all your photos. Dayframe routinely checks for updates so you always have what's new without effort.

★ Self-Managed Convenience

Dayframe is designed to automatically play when you’re not using your device. Once you’re set up, that’s it. Dayframe takes care of everything. No check-ins, no remembering, just set it and forget it.

★ Screensaver Timer

You pick the best time to play as a screensaver, along with settings for network, battery level, and power source. The app won’t run all night or drain your battery / bandwidth.

★ Old Tablets are Awesome!

Dayframe is excellent for re-purposing old tablets. Set up a tablet in your kitchen, living room, bedroom, or anywhere you want a powerful photo frame that doubles as web browser, remote control, and shareable device.

Wants me to upgrade b4 it even works I just wanted to check if this app works. Installed the app, tried to cast a photo and on my tv screen it gives a message "Activity Aborted" and on my phone it gives a message "Upgrade to prime, this feature might work" Guess what? I'm uninstalling this! Sucks!

Chris Oliver

Needs automatic refresh whilst casting This would be a great app if it was more useful for parties/weddings. Unfortunately when viewing a slide show/casting for a particular hashtag (ie. A unique one you might ask your guests to tag their photos in so they show up on a big screen), the stream doesn't automatically update - you have to exit the slideshow, refresh the page and then go back into the slideshow. Needs to be updated so that any particular feed auto updates without the need for a manual refresh...then you'll have a great party app!

Mikael Rönde

Prime ruined it Worked fine until I upgraded to prime. Then it became slow, freezing and then crashing. As I can't seem to downgrade, I'll have to find another solution.

Daniel Lobato

Still can't use chromecast What am I doing wrong it will not show all pictures and sometimes it does not work

Shei kh Edward

Sorry,less than one star or even minus stars Slow or not working on Samsung Tab 10.1, freezes and/or freezes the system with reboot. Tried it also with all other possible apps closed but same results. Looks very promissing but uninstalled this version. They should be ashamed to throw in so many requests for buying the pro version if this less than trial version does not work properly.

preben nielsen

NAS? Overall this is probably a good app... but I am extremely disappointed to discover that it cannot access my NAS! It can access local folders on my Android device but since it cannot access my NAS it's useless for the kind of slideshow I'm looking for. 13-May-2015. Still no NAS support ?

Alex Studnicki

Used to work. Not anymore. Brain freeze notification when casting to Chromecast. Casting works after the update, but still full of bugs. Crashes, switches to wrong playlist after turning my Nexus from portrait to landscape, asks if I want to create a new playlist but does nothing on "Yes" etc... . How this app passed QC beats me...

Steve Sims

Junkware Freezes, ANR, loses settings. Freezes. Crashes. Freezes. Pity, really, because the app has great promise and I was poised to buy the Pro version. But I never (literally, never) was able to get a photoshow running consistently and reliably on any of three separate tablets.

Samuel King

Promising app but unstable, slow and unintuitive An app which looks good on the surface and has great potential. Unfortunately it runs very slowly, touch is (somehow) unintuitive and not very responsive, and it's a resource hog. If those bugs were fixed it could be ready great...

markus nolf

works like a charm, except for two minor things. i'm using this on a supercheap tablet which i've just bought as a digital picture frame, and it's working great. updates to my connected dropbox folder get pushed through within a few minutes. two feature requests: 1) the "timer on" event only seems to work when i manually unlock the tablet in the morning. is there any way around this? or is it an android limitation? 2) anigif support would make this the most awesome photo frame app of all times! i'll definitely upgrade to prime the minute it supports anigifs!

Jeffrey Klassen

This app needs polish. Why are no developers trying to make a really great picture frame app. This app was a good start but just lost steam. They need to nail the basics like image transitions first, then add the whistles like chromecast support.

Noah Boguslavsky

Problems, problems, problems! This is one of the few apps I immediately fell in love with. So much so, in fact, that I bought the Prime version. Big mistake. That's when the problems, freezes, and blank slideshows started. Apparently, the app handles small slideshows pretty well, but ones with a great number of images (which is the whole point) lead to problems. Very disappointing and a waste of money, it seems.

Phia Westfall

Almost, but not quite. Was really hoping this would do what I needed. If this could give me the same slideshow functions on Chromecast as on my old device with a tiny screen, I'd be thrilled; there's no clock or weather visible while casting, no photo info, etc. Expected a replacement for Chromecast Backdrop but with decent image source selection. Also, "can add multiple Facebook friends at a time" doesn't seem to be true.

Stephen Cooke

a bit lack luster! first time i have seen a slideshow player without animations from photo to photo!

Vladimir Abram

Great application for using a tablet as a photoframe A lifetime of my photoframe, which I used to display all our family photos in a loop, has been finished and I started to use the Dayframe application to display my Picasa albums on my Xperia Z tablet's fantastic screen . Great application! The only thing missing for me is a connection to my home NAS on which most of my photos are located. Unfortunately, I've also haven't succeeded to bypass this miss by mounting the NAS drive in the tablet's Android in order other applications, such as Dayframe, may use it.

Andrew Graceffa

Developer communicated, it all works great now on Chromecast! Fantastic app when everything works smoothly. Great work!

Marcelo Garcia

Meh Guess I thought it would be like the default wallpaper for the Chromecast only with one's own pics. Unfortunately better off with Google+ or the Chromecast app for what this does

Tony Bullard

When it works, it's got great features... It's not the most intuitive interface, but once it's set up, the slideshow from all sort of sources is very cool. However, at this point, it won't even launch on my phone. I've emailed support. We'll see how quickly they get back to me. Looks like it's a problem lots of people are having. Over a week and no response. Lowered rating to one star. I'll try to get a refund, but I doubt it will happen.

Stefawn Thompson

Used this everyday with my Chromecast but now it'll connect, won't play the slideshow then disconnects on its own. Please fix. Thank you.

Mike Simpson

Broken now I liked the slide show a few weeks back. Now it's broken. Such a shame. Dayframe looked awesome. Past tense.

Joe Bowser

Great for many sources The fact that I can finally show pictures from Flickr on the TV is a big win.

Brandon Weaver

Stopped working Worked great until now. Every time I cast photos it says chromecast disconnected. Yet, I am able to watch Netflix and HBO Go just fine with chromecast. I even deleted and reinstalled Dayframe with no change. Please help.

Andy Roberson

Loving this app! Best app for slideshow to Chromecast bar none! Nexus 5 w/ Google+ photos works like a champ. Would enjoy seeing some more sophisticated transition with face detection. :-)

Diallo Dixon

Doesnt detect changes in dropbox Promising app, looks good and all but doesnt seem to work well with dropbox. It will initially load the photos from a dropbox folder but will not recognize if any of the photos are removed, you have to kill and restart the app. Would be great if this was fixed.

Nelis Orb

Where's the share support Facebook yea.. instagram yea... I have 30 gigs of photos on my pc with a share. Oh can't do that.. fooo. I'll rate better if they support shares in my home, not the cloud. UPDATE: started using Google+. Working well with that. Really needs a random mode. Slide shows always are in the same order.

Bob Hawk

Awesome app for displaying your photos using Chromecast I have been trying lots of photo sharing apps but the one thing I wanted was the ability to display with Chromecast. Day Frame does it. I upgraded to get a few more features which was worth it to me.

Lawrence Brown

Needs local NAS support Slick, works smoothly, interface is a bit confusing. Needs local NAS/smb share support. No really, desperately needs NAS support

Paul de Vries

buggy as hell pattern lock no longer works keeps exiting out of slideshow when phone attempts to lock initiates even when battery is below 30% (when set not to run at this level)

Dan Stevens

Not stable Keeps crashing, uggh, it seems hard to find a decent facebook streamer and this is one of the few ... but castbox & framebook are solid and work alot better. Will add more stars if the stability improves here !

Alexandar Mechev

Fantastic Customer support! Had Dayframe crash on an old version of Android, Updated my ROM to 4.4.2, and now it works great! Despite only taking a couple of days to do the upgrade, I Was still contacted to resolve the issue. A pleasant surprise :)

Pranayy Kar

Screensaver not starting automatically in my HP slate 7, with charger being plugged in,timer set n pro version

Lawrence Lapitan

Won't cast pictures from phone... Note 3.... Doesn't cast photos from my folders... Worthless... Until fixed I will not recommend. Brain Freeze on chromecast, and I'm a prime user...

Sean Dean

Fails to launch, 'brain freeze' error on Chromecast screen Installed, seem to get constant error of 'brain freeze' on screen, Chromecast working perfectly on other apps. So never worked for me.

gerald fraser

Shows photos better than Backdrop I have been unhappy with the loss of colour when using Google Backdrop feature for Chromecast. Dayframe Casts photos with full colours ☺

Tom Wood

Love it but.... Works sometimes. I select a photo to cast but another one in my library pops up. Interface is really leggy and choppy. I'm using a note 3 with a Wife Ac connection. :(

Alin Iordache

Crashes all the time Keeps on switching to online galleries when I am playing my camera files. Wtf!

Kurt Schumacher

Frequent restarting I have had problems with my battery not lasting as long as it should so I installed clean master and it is saying that Day Frame is frequently restarting. I like many of the things about this app, but I don't like the fact that it is always starting up and running by itself. There is no need for it to be running when I am not using it. When this is fixed, I will take another look at it.

Andrew deBlois

Great app until it stopped connecting Was using this for a week but nowk it won't connect to chromecast anymore. Chromecast just shows Brain Freeze message. Clearing cache and data didn't help. (update) Fix seems to be working great! Nice job.

John Mungo

Not a fan. No access to network devices like on other chromecast apps... it is quick and setup is nice. Just not robust enough for access to my own photos anywhere other than my phone... I use a DLSR, I want access to my computer or network hard drive.

Allan Dodds

Brain Freeze - Fixed Error message every time a cast is made. Useless on Nexus 5. Has now been fixed. . Working well.

Денис Н.

Almost perfect Please make an option to always show weather like clock! And weather forecast for next days would be epic.

Dmitriy Dmitriev

Cool application Must have

Тимофей Титов

Cool Please create a live wallpaper based on the slideshow

Станислав Кинзерский

Does not support Pocketbook A10 Does not support pocketbook A10 (A10 3G). Fix it, please!

Yarvud Brown

Nice Need more slide-change animation. Thanks. :-)

Vergy Anovergy

Great app! Very helpful.

Richard Parker

Pointless. Doesn't seem to allow me to show my own photos from an SD card, only other people's photos from the internet. Why would I want to do that. If there is an option to show my own photos, it's very well hidden. I thought it might be the "Gallery" button, but that does nothing. Great app if you want to view random pictures taken by strangers.

John Dyer

Dayframe Works well - or it did, then it crashed and I couldnt stop it, had to reboot chromecast, now every few minutes my phone says dayframe has stopped working, even though its not running, shame because I really liked it

Beatrice Gatta

It needs to lock the screen My tablet can't lock anymore when the app is enabled, and I need to be able to lock it. Is there a way to do so?

Lawrence Lapitan

And it's fixed... Note 3, enjoyable experience and fast... now a good staple for my tv.

Kramer Home

I bought the premium, can't say I am satisfied. Google Photo albums don't show up on one of my devices. I can't pick random pics. The weather - which I want on all the time- stops showing after one pic. For a premium app, it should work better than this. I would not recommend you purchasing it. There's little customization of anything on the screen - no calendar events or anything. Timer also doesn't work. Slideshow continues well past the end time. Don't purchase premium like I did.

Sally Stack

Not so good While playing a slide show from Dropbox on my Note 2 phone through Chromecast the picture is shown for 1 to 10 seconds. There is no control option for this. A music feature would be nice. I purchased prime so I could view my pictures in Dropbox. I wish I wouldn't have.

LuC uLuC

Google photos is no show I took the prime option and I already regret it... No google photos support... Can I get my money back as a refund for in app purchases are not that easy? Thank you

Adrian Ilie

Wish I listened to other reviewers and not bought Prime. The weather icon disappears after the first image and shows up again when touched, because they put it in a different overlay.

Vera Holmes

Only shows public google+ images When you try to add a specific person to your photo stream, it will only add them if they have public photos and will only display those photos. If they were shared to a circle you were in, or even shared privately with just you, dayframe won't see them.

Phia Westfall

Almost, but not quite. Was really hoping this would do what I needed. If this could give me the same slideshow functions on Chromecast as on my old device with a tiny screen, I'd be thrilled; there's no clock or weather visible while casting, no photo info, etc. Expected a replacement for Chromecast Backdrop but with decent image source selection. Also, with the changes to Facebook, that's now useless with Dayframe.

Jitin Varughese

Very buggy Doesn't play my entire album from Flickr. Very disappointed and I even did the prime. Try something alternative. Stay away from this one !

eRocky D

Grrr Bought it on home account but wont work on my knox account. In app purchases really grind my gears.

Charmaine Mossbarger

This used to work. Now it only shows public photos and not my albums. Is this a sync issue? Please fix!

Lance Davis

Gif support in app?? Would be perfect if the gifs played in app as well as on Chromecast.

Richard Reveley

Could do with an option to add a folder and all subfolders on Dropbox. I've got several hundred folders I'm trying to click through and it's pretty brutal.

Amit Bhayana

How do you display current weather on this? If I can do that it will be 5 stars.

Antonio Freire

Crashes android on dropbox photostream update At end of slideshow when is to lopp.. if a new pic was added in the meantime it just crashes.. Have to try it on chromecast.. but fear the worst

Frank Banul

Timers don't work in Android 4.4. There are no transition effects. Weather won't stay on the screen. Other than those limitations, this is the best photo frame that I have found.

a pg

It would get 5 stars if it could play animated gifs

Yarvud Brown

Feature request: pls add settings for - always show weather and battery level. Thanks

Justin White

Very Slow and Interface Not Intuitive

Greg Valvo

Slow, buggy, non-intuitive user interface. Developer is totally unresponsive to emailed questions.

Sean Ellingham

Tired of waiting This was once a promising photo frame app, but now it appears to be abandoned - no updates for the past six months, and features that were "planned" two years ago are still not implemented.

Linh Ngo-Tran

Don't know why photo quality with Google Photo is so bad!

ryan Martin

Need random Love the app. Would be better if you could add random to the settings so photos play in no particular order. Then 5 stars. Thanks!

Pete Clayton

No access to local network content... I don't keep photos on my tablet or phone, there's not enough room for that - like many people, I store them on a NAS device, but this app doesn't let you browse for folders on your home network, that's just barmy! It looks as though Google Photos and Google+ are accessible, which would be great, but again, you don't get to browse your cloud content, so why include these services? Definitely a work in progress...

David DesBois

Awesome! I use dropbox to store my photos and this synchs to it. so now my photos auto appear in the photo frame! Awesome!!!

Mandi Melville

FC every 2 seconds on both my Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab S2.

Matthew Gauley

Doesn't play nice with my device What it does that it's supposed to do is nice. After i installed it though, my device wouldn't lock. Then it wouldn't go to the home screen. And then the last thing, i couldn't turn the screen off.

Sally Stack

Not so good While playing a slide show from Dropbox on my Note 2 phone through Chromecast the picture is shown for 1 to 10 seconds. There is no control option for this. A music feature would be nice. I purchased prime so I could view my pictures in Dropbox. I wish I wouldn't have. I now use the app AllCast.

Mark Grey

Works fine with tumblr, which I mainly use it for. Would be great to be able to reblog posts retaining all information about them (ie. from which blog and description) Also does not show additional pictures from multipicture post, just the first one. Therefore 4 stars. I like it anyway. The best one I found so far.

Clive Marner

Just want my photos I just want to use my photos from my device in a slideshow, not stream from other sources. Couldn't figure out how to do this.

Romteera Schlagwein

As others have commented: Does not show any Google Photos photos. Kind of pointless to have a photo day frame that does show Google Photos... on Android!

Anders Floor

Lot of potential but too many bugs. The picture you see on your phone is different from the picture that is sent to Chromecast. Just rubbish. Wish I hadn't bought Prime. Since it's an in app purchase you cannot undo it .

Robert Schambach

How hard can it be to get it right? Can't access any folders on the sdcard, duhhhhh.

ednang Coyne

Awful Google photos should just play slideshows.

Boris Lipschitz

(1) The project seems dead. (2) The 500px photos looked low resolution on my (huge) Android TV. Tried on Nexus 7 and it looked low resolution there as well. Having root on the Nexus, I've pulled one of the stream cache files, got a URL of one of the photos (14807765) and pulled it to my PC. It was just 900x599! Seriously?!

Vefa Kucukboyaci

Nothing works Good idea, bad execution. Maybe it is my old tablet,but nothing advertised works. I will be uninstalling it and seeking a refund I've paid on the premium version.

Larry Streich

⚠⚠ WARNING ⚠⚠ Good thing I decided to look at the comments before I almost upgraded. Doesn't appear that even PAID CUSTOMER CONCERNS are being addressed at all. No updates since June 2015? This app seems to have been ABANDONED by its "developers". If I where GOOGLE, I would DROP THIS APP and go with somebody that actually cares! "Take the money and run" seems to be their attitude. ? ?

Carlos A

Can't disable change animation :( I use it for motivational quotes but the animation doesn't allow me to read it without having to wait for the whole image to scroll through .... annoying!

Frank Banul

Timers don't work in Android 4.4. There are no transition effects. Weather won't stay on the screen. Other than those limitations, this is the best photo frame that I have found. 3.1 won't open, crashes on startup. Please revert back to the old code or update, I sent logs.

Wes Bolton

Used to be great Loved this app for my old tablets and phones to run pics around the house from all my clouds. Now it crashes on startup every time. Please fix!

Lupe Law

Awful Spent ages trying to get pics from my phone to play and just couldnt. Waste of time

Rich Petruccelli

What happened? App was working until the update the other day. Been crashing on startup since then.


Crashed Before any sort of boot up of the app I get told it has stopped, every time.

Leonid Roytenberg

App does not work at all. Wont start. It worked fine until the latest update. Hope they fix it soon.

Brian Johnson

3.0.1 worked but 3.1 just crashes (tested on two android 4.4 2 tablets)

Sherry Johanson

Used to be Great This used to be great viewing pictures of dropbox that my sons would upload, but now the app won't even start on my KitKat tablet.

John Rehak

Reviews speak for themselves. Don't bother with this app. A waste of time and money.

Anthony Spalla

Worked great till last update. Now it just crashes

TheLittle BrownDog

Crashes Used to work fine, now always crashes on launch. Bought premium version and can't even use it.

Crashes at launch Useless without an update

Josh Stark

Love the app, but... I had to roll back to version 3.0.1 on my tablet. The most recent version would crash on startup. This is with an LG v410 running KitKat 4.4.

Q. Rogers

Awesome This is great for putting an old tablet or seldom used tablet to good use buy using this app to stream photos from numerous sources. Add in the chromecast functionality and that really makes this a robust app for any photography lover.

Tony Carmichael

Instagram login broken Getting 403 error when attempting to sign in to ig. Makes this app useless to me...

Jesse Baird

It used to be a 5 star app until the last "update" which makes the app no longer work.

Ben Fischer

Instagram support needs update IG support throws an error message
