This New App Allows You To Send Time Capsules To Your Future Self And We're Obsessed

Because future-you deserves to be reminded of the fabulousness of present-day-you.

By now, you've already lived a hell of a life — and it's worth reminding yourself every now and then just how rich it's been.

Broken a bone? Graduated high school? Moved into your first sharehouse? Seen some of the world? It all might feel insignificant in the moment, but trust me — it's all important.

But if your highest highs, lowest lows and everything else in between have been captured and stored on smartphones, in voice notes and on social, it might feel like they're less "precious memories" and more "memory-eating extras."

Look, I feel you — a smartphone only has so much precious storage for videos to eat up. But losing these memories is so much worse.

That's where the legends behind the app Memories come in.

Memories

They've made it incredibly easy to safely store your most cherished mems in formats that not only help you revisit the past, but also allow you to tell your own story.

A timeline format always makes everything (even a run of the mill weekend) seem that little bit more grand and significant. It's also a timeless way to remember loved ones who've moved on and share their stories.

Memories also makes it a breeze to import everything you've captured on Insta or uploaded to Facebook.

If I'm being honest, that's where all of my most treasured memories end up and I don't even have the original photos or videos.

And not only can you document your own life story, you can also speak to yourself (and whoever else you choose) in the future by scheduling messages.

For added peace of mind, everything in the app is totally ad-free and only you get to determine the privacy settings of each timeline and message.

If you can't remember the last time you planned to make a time capsule or even opened a photo album, Memories has your name written all over it.

And honestly, even if you can remember, a digital version is still a more secure and permanent way of safeguarding your stories.

Make sure you never forget about that seriously cool festival you went to or Mum's 40th birthday by getting Memories today.
