Timehop has had a cult following on iOS, and finally arrived on Android a few days ago. The app makes a collage of sorts, by combining the posts, photos and videos from your phone's gallery, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Foursquare, and plays them back to you.
The kicker is in its timeframe, though, as Timehop's slogan is "What did you do 1 year ago today?" Naturally, you can make this two or three years, but the point is to relive the date in the past, going down memory lane. Sounds simple and basic, but you'll soon catch yourself constantly checking your daily dose of posts and videos timeline, reminiscing of ideas or events you've long forgotten, or diving deeper into a relationship progress.
Of course, the downside is that you have to give Timehop access to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and so on feeds, but the devs promise to only use the info for aggregating a snapshot of your life on this day a year or two ago; besides, what's privacy this day and age, when you can marvel at your past brilliancy one day at a time.
