Terry’s Free App of the Day: Travel In Your Past With Timehop
I'm pretty obsessed with time travel. The fact that leading physicists actually believe that some form of travel across time could be theoretically possible makes my Spidey-Sense tingle. Unfortunately that sort of time travel probably won't happen in my lifetime (unless you have a spare time machine you're willing to loan me).
There is, however, another way. Utilizing your own social media posts and pics, you can travel back to your own past with an app called 'Timehop.'
Timehop connects to your Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, and Flickr accounts and presents a "this day in history" look at your own life. It's interesting to look back and see how you were feeling a year ago, two years ago, even five years ago at what you were doing, and what you were snapping photos of.
Apparently one year ago I had an unhealthy love of bacon and cheese flavored Potato Skins chips. Live and learn I guess.
Timehop is free on iTunes.

The Apple App Store is still by far the most bountiful of all the online app stores. There are literally hundreds of thousands of apps in the App Store, and it's growing every day. There are over 275,000 apps made for the iPad alone.
