Create Your Own Photo Chronology with PhotoChron
Have you seen those videos on YouTube? By that, I mean the surreal videos that show the transformation of one’s looks over years. You might have even attempted to recreate them, but either forgot 5 days in, or just simply lost the motivation to do so. Now there’s an app that can help you create your own photo chronology called PhotoChron.
Developed by XDA Forum Member Twodads, PhotoChron is a simple app that aims to help you create your own photo chronology. The user interface is straight forward and intuitive, allowing the creation and concurrent tracking of multiple projects. Photos are taken through PhotoChron’s own camera app, which has its own helpful little perks. The camera app allows the option to toggle an overlay of a guiding facial visual, or have the previous photo overlaid on top of the photo you’re currently taking. A project screen displays all the photos in the chronology, and has 4 actions on the bottom:
- Launch PhotoChron’s camera app
- Generate a video of the photo chronology
- Share the project and photos through various sharing options
- Import images from the device’s gallery
And just in case you’re one of those who likes to forget things, Twodads included the options to turn on daily, weekly, or monthly notifications to remind you of the daily, weekly, or monthly ‘selfie’ you’ve committed to taking for the next couple of years.
PhotoChron is compatible with Android versions 2.3 and newer, and can be downloaded for free from the Play store. If this has you curious, visit the application thread for more details.
