Timehop, your personal social media time capsule, has launched on Android. The service helps you re-live “this day in history” by displaying the previous years’ photos that you had posted on Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare and Twitter.
Timehop started as an email service, graduated to iPhone and is now available for Android users to enjoy. You will be greeted every day with your photos from that same day in years previous. The service offers a unique way of remembering, and re-living, all of the many photos that most of us have taken and shared across various mediums over the last few years.
Timehop founder Jonathan Wegener believes that content gains value with time, that photographs become more meaningful the older they get. As many of us have digital photos and social media history going back many years, Timehop offers a great way to remenisce about past vacations, re-experience events and marvel at the growth of our children and friendships.
Timehop claims over one million downloads for iOS and sees 40% of its users log in daily. The iOS app also sits within the Top 200 in the U.S. App Store. The initiative to get to the users of Android, the worlds largest mobile OS market share leader, began last year with a $3 million funding campaign led by Spark Capitol.
Timehop for Android went live today for users of Android 4.0 and up. Grab your copy from the Google Play Store. Fair warning, the app currently does not support your Google+ account and requires a Facebook login to get started.
Let’s have at it, what were you posting about on this day last year?
