Timehop – The Digital Time Capsule App

timehop

If you have been on Facebook lately, you have probably seen a few Timehop posts pop up on your newsfeed.  Timehop is an app that you can download for FREE for your smartphone.  Basically, Timehop will show you what you posted a year ago, 2 years ago, 3 years ago, etc. on that specific day. You will see links, status updates, photos, videos, etc.  This is a great way to bring back memories and also see the changes you have made over the years.

One of the cool things about this app is you can also see past posts from Instagram, twitter, dropbox, Foursquare, etc.  After looking at your past posts, you have the option to share the posts on your social media profiles.  Doing this allows your friends and families to see what you did in the past, and they will most likely have something to say about it so you can almost always look forward to having great conversations about your past!

Think of Timehop as a digital time capsule.  Technology has come a long way.  Digging up time capsules from your back yard is fun, but you now have the past conveniently located on your phone in your hands 24/7!  One thing I wish the app allowed us to do is search for a specific date. Hopefully in a later update they will have that option.  Until then, going day-by-day is what we will have to do.  It is still really neat to be able to see what you did a year ago and compare it to what you are doing today in the present.  I can’t wait to see what else Timehop comes up with as they add new features!  What is your favorite thing about this app?  Do you use it daily?
