The Rewind App is a memory cataloguing app with a completely secure and entirely user-controlled approach to sharing images, video, audio clips, notes and files with family and friends. You’ve spent your whole life living your story. The major events, the minor details and everything in between. But those memories and details can fade. There’s no need to forget anything, ever again! Weddings, birthdays, holidays, school days, festivals, relationships, first steps, pets, food, gigs, bad haircuts…

Rewind makes it easy to record, store and share those memories, to appreciate them in the future. You build your digital history, from your birth to the present day and beyond. Rewind is your hidden space that you fully control from any device, away from all the noise. With no algorithms, adverts, data sharing or analysis. Organise your memories into convenient categories, send and receive shared memories and reminisce with friends and family. You can even create a private timeline for your child that they can continue with when they're old enough.
Rewind is user-friendly and intuitive, with a clean and colourful design. Wording is stripped back and conversational, making it super simple to use and impossible to mess up. Gentle prompts make uploading memories a pleasure, not a chore.
Building your ​Rewind ​timeline couldn’t be easier. Just download the app, enter your birth year and start adding memories by answering some of our ​memory maker questions ​from the eight diverse categories, designed to help you deep dive, recall and save events from your past. Then upload your images, videos and audio clips until you’re up to date - and simply keep your memories topped up from there, as the moments happen.

Tag friends and family that are also Rewind members in memories you create so they can be shared to their timelines too.

Unlike other journal or photo diary apps, ​Rewind​’s timeline and categories are designed to help you easily record and review any details from your past and present and save them for your future. They’re better organised - so it’s much easier to find your memories and there’s never a need for endless ‘camera roll scroll’.

In older children, it’s proven that high social media usage and the constant need for social approval can lead to anxiety, stress and depression. With Rewind, although they can still connect with friends to share memories, their ​timelines are not visible to others, keeping them protected online. Rewind provides an alternative, non-social media platform that reduces time spent seeking public validation and creates something of personal value that can also be beneficial to their well-being. ​With no algorithms, adverts or influencers, no likes or dislikes, no bullying or hate speech, no trolls or strangers, Rewind provides a digital safe space, just for them. Social memories, not social media.
