Rewind.me Demo (Foursquare Edition)
Technology is all about looking to the future, but with so many different virtual identities and social networks it’s tough to keep track of who you’ve spoken with and where you’ve been. The Rewind.Me iOS app, however, lets you dive into your past experiences by pulling in your social network data and organizing it for you. The idea is simple. Imagine you went to a delicious Greek restaurant in March around one mile from your apartment but you can’t seem to remember where it is. Rewind.Me imports your entire Foursquare history and makes it searchable by date, location, and category. You have the option to search by distance (1 mile), category (Greek restaurants), and date (March, 2012).
