Time Shutter – San Francisco Deluxe

By  | 

Many of us live in modern cities these days. But our cities didn’t always look the way they do now. Things change over time. Buildings are brought down and new establishments take their place. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way you could see how your city has changed over time? If you live in San Francisco, Time Shutter – San Francisco Deluxe has you covered. It shows you how the city has changed from 100 years ago.

Time Shutter has over 200 images of San Francisco from the 20th century. It clearly shows you how your city has changed from those years. All you have to do is hold your phone up and slide your finger to see what was in that place years ago. The app gives you a tour guide of your city, which is perfect for those new to that area.

Time Shutter’s transition is smooth.  It has an opacity slider that makes going through the photos more fun. The photos are pretty cool too. You are provided with captions to give you a better sense what you are looking at. Time Shutter has a map that shows you areas you can explore near your current location. The app is social media friendly, which helps.

If you are interested in finding out more about the history of San Francisco, Time Shutter is well worth checking out. We would love to see these types of apps created for other cities.
