Hop back years in time and find out what you were doing on social networks

Social media is so focused on what's happening now that we almost never scroll back to find out what we were up to years ago. In the name of digi-nostalgia, Timehop automatically reminds you what you posted 1, 2, 3, and 4 years ago across many of your social network accounts.

Connect your Facebook account to Timehop - it'll never post anything, but needs access in order to tell you what you were doing there years ago. You can connect your Twitter, Instagram, and Foursquare if you like as well. The app also crawls the photos taken with your device, checking if you snapped any on this day during the previous four years. Whatever it comes across will be displayed on the principal screen, organized by year. If desired, the app will send you a push notification each day, reminding you of events from the years prior.

The aesthetic and navigational design is professional, modern, and intuitive. You've really got to be a prolific social media user in order for the app to have much utility, but if you fit in that category, the lure of nostalgia is hard to deny.

Timehop is a potentially fun little app if you've been a social media fiend these past years.

    Great app! No complaints except it would be nice to go back to previous dates on your own to view history

    Always tells me that it's had trouble traveling. Takes forever for me to get the app to work. Please fix.

    The ONLY thing I find to be lacking at this point is the ability to share old videos.

    This works about half the time. Says I have one but then can't pull it up all day so I miss it. Uninstalled/reinstalled 3 times. Does not help.
