Ratings and Reviews
Love it, but I wish one small feature would come back!
I’ve used timehop every single day for over two years, and before that still used it almost every day with a couple of small breaks while traveling. The only thing I wish would come back is the ability to click on the part that shows how many likes and comments you had and see them pop up right there. It now takes you to the app (Facebook or IG) to view the post and see your comments and going back and forth between the two for every list of comments I want to see for that day gets to be a hassle and I don’t end up checking the commments at all now. But other than that I wouldn’t change a thing! I love the format and every update they make somehow makes the look even cooler. I like that you can even sync your iPhoto. I love the flashback video and the screen at the end with a new blurb every day and the fact that it lets you know how many days you’ve consecutively checked in with a banner for each year. Well done!
Most features you liked are gone
I'm sorry team, I know you are excited and you wanted to ship, but I don't think any users were asking for this update. At least not enough to outweigh the fact that many of the features that your users like and consider an important part of the app, are missing now. I know you'll be adding back some later, but as of right now it's frustrating that I can't do things I used to be able to, all for a design update that I honestly don't consider an upgrade. I don't care how hip my tweets look or that my photos are now in frames. I can't access my original tweets any longer or click on the links within them. I can't really scroll past large photo sets, or easily past whole years like I used to be able to. You put design over function and now your users are upset and potentially permanently lost. I know I'll keep using for a little while because I'm addicted to myself, but that won't last forever if every time I try to use the app, the features that I got the most utility out of aren't there, and the experience is negative each time instead. Did you survey your users about what mattered most to them? Did you look at metrics on what features were most used? Did you do any user testing with actual loyal users? Maybe you did all of this, but for someone who got this update out of the blue, I am both not happy and am passionate enough to write this, but how much I care for your app won't last long. --user since it was just a daily email back in 2012.
Take the autoplay off the videos.
Edited! Thanks for the fix! 😘
I’m checking Timehop and the first thing I’m greeted with when I open the app is a blaring ad. Obnoxiously loud and NO WAY TO MUTE IT. The only solution is to close the app, open it back up, and then scroll through as quickly as possible before the video loads, which is counterproductive to the purpose of the app (enjoying my memories.) Many an article on advertising best practices will tell you that most users find autoplaying videos intrusive and offensive. Default the sound to muted (like Facebook does) with an option to play the sound if a user chooses. Some people check their Timehop in waiting rooms, at work, during a commute or other places where sudden loud noise from their device is extremely embarrassing at best.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
