What were you doing exactly a year ago? Tweeting a picture of your food? Complaining about the weather? With Timehop, you can look back on past-you with a kind of self-awareness that, quite frankly, might be a little depressing.

This app requires a Facebook login, but can also connect to Twitter, Instagram, and Foursquare. The idea is that Timehop acts as a hub for all the social content you posted exactly one, two, three, and four years ago. It builds a timeline of past-you, which you can share with your networks or just revel in all alone. The app will notify you when a new 'Timehop' is available for viewing in the app.

As for the app itself it seems responsive, but doesn't have much in the way of settings. You can't really complain too much – it gets the job done and is pretty easy on the eyes.

    I guess this is why on the silhouettes they are showing a Galaxy S3 with Android 4.3 statusbar?

      The silhouette isn't a galaxy S3.

        What is is then? S4? S5?
        Definately looks like GS3 to me

          Look at the front of an S3, then look at the silhouette in the pictures.

          • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

            Ah, I see now

            I agree though it looks more like an S3 than an S4. The other difference is the light sensor and whatever the other one is.

    I've been using Everyday.me for their flashback emails, curious to see how this compares.
