Here's an interesting alternate to the usual photo sharing app. 5 Yrs Later lets you take or import a photo, upload it to the developers server, and then 5 years later have it emailed to the emails addresses specified during the upload sharing process.
When I first heard about this app, I did have concerns that the service would still be up and running in 5 years, so I contacted the developer Tom Broucke, who assured me the service would be still running, saying "the service is running on my own server (where I host other websites and stuff). So it will always be available. I couldn't live with myself if I would just stop the service, it's just not professional."
The suggested uses for 5 Yrs Later are:
- Take a picture of your baby, see the changes when he/she is 5 years older.
- Take a picture of your first kiss. Surprise your partner with the picture. (also a good reminder)
- Take a picture of yourself, see how you changed over the years
- Prank your friend. Let him know one year later
5 Yrs Later is currently available from the App Store priced £0.69/$0.99/€0.79
