Timehop is a free iPhone app with a brilliant concept that allows you to look back in time and view what you did on a particular day back in history. It allows you to sync with many social networks and hence has a greater chance for showing an event that happened on a particular day in the history. The application is as simple as it sounds but the psychological value of the task it performs is very high.
We don’t even realize that we are building memories every day round the clock and then probably stack them as photos in our library and never go through it. Timehop ensures that you revive those times every now and then.
Features of Timehop:
To begin with, you need to sign in to Timehop using your Facebook account. Once your account on Timehop is created, you can log in to multiple social networks so that Timehop can fetch your photos and sort them according to the dates. The social networks available for syncing are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Foursquare. Apart from these social networks you can also use many other tools to sync your photos.
You can use your Dropbox account in order to fetch photos. Similarly, you can connect Timehop with your iPhotos. iPhotos is mainly used by Macs to store photos. For syncing with iPhoto, you need to visit an external site from your PC and follow the instructions to begin syncing. Your iPhone’s camera roll is automatically synced.
You will get a daily push notification to know what you did on this day in history. Apart from this you can get mail and SMS reminders. You need to enter your Email ID so that you can fetch your friend’s Email ID and share those moments with them as well. When I logged in to Timehop, I was shown the activities I did on a particular day in past three years.
Timehop features a brand new concept and it is pretty exciting to use this application. Instead of scrolling through infinite photos to look for the memories we created with our friends, it is better to have a application to organize all for us at one go. One problem I found with this application is that you cannot choose a particular date for which you want to view photos. It is simply the current day’s photos you can view.
