Heyday connects resources like the articles you read, Google Docs, and Twitter into a unified knowledge base. It will then automatically resurface information from its knowledge base that’s relevant to the task you’re working on, such as when you are searching the web or reading an article.

🔮 Our Analysis
Recently, there has been a growing interest in personal knowledge management, a complicated way of describing the process of storing and revisiting important information. A number of tools such as note-taking apps have grown in popularity, enabling interesting ways of showing connections between the notes you take. There are two ways Heyday stands out from these tools. First, it allows information to be automatically collected through integrations and your browsing habits, as opposed to collecting information from manual note-taking. Second, it has an AI-enabled mechanism for automatically resurfacing content when you need it, instead of relying on the user to manually look through the knowledge base. This “set it and forget it” approach conveniently improves the experience of working on tasks such as research, studying, and more, and it can only get better through improvements like more integrations. We’ll be sure to remember to keep up with the company going forward.
