Every now and then you come across an app that just makes sense, it’s such a simple idea yet so powerful and fun to use and then share (again).
Timehop iOS/Web app falls into this category. I have really enjoyed this app and I now use it everyday.
This app is your social time machine. You hook into your Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Foursquare accounts and Timehop will give you take you back up to 7 years on what you posted in the past.
You’d think why is this useful? That’s what I thought at first but after a few days I was amazed by what I was doing 3 years back. Remembering the days, the photos I forgot about, thoughts, feelings, places I checked into and with whom. It’s a wonderful app to reminisce.
I highly recommend it. You can setup a little reminder to go check out your time hop each day and you can spend a minute or two scanning through the past. Over the years you may have tens of thousands of tweets, photos, checkins, random thoughts that may have been up front and abrupt at the time you posted it but quickly dumped out and forgotten.
I am in the boat that if you don’t know where you’ve been you don’t know where you are going and what not to do again. This is a pretty neat app that reminds you of your social networking past activity.
Go download it and go back in time.
