"More than worth its price”
With over 200 stunning images of San Francisco at the dawn of the 20th century for “then and now” transitions, Time Shutter San Francisco Deluxe is the most complete way to immerse oneself in the city’s rich history.
Time Shutter San Francisco Deluxe is the perfect way to slip on the shoes of a San Franciscan of 100 years ago and experience it all - Market Street, Chinatown and Golden Gate Park - exactly as they were.
And with 100 additional vivid, historical images of San Francisco in the era of horse buggies and bowler hats, the Deluxe Edition shows you much more of the city’s rich history than the Free Edition.
Appolicious calls Time Shutter “more than worth it”, and the San Francisco Chronicle calls it “cool” and “a handy tool”.
Here’s how it works:
Use the app’s geo-coded map to guide you on a walking tour of well-known locations throughout the city.
You hold up your phone to the scene in front of you and by sliding your finger across the screen you see how that building, beach or street looked from that exact spot 100 years ago.
Each “then and now” transition is coupled with a caption that brings you even deeper in to the past, evoking the smell of coal smoke from steam ships and the noise of saloons, while bringing out the backstory of the architecture, people and events that created these places.
The app includes:
* 240 vintage, color images of San Francisco, including all the highlights like Union Square, St. Francis Hotel, and Ocean Beach.
* Captions that explain the architecture and history of each spot, and capture the sounds, smells and textures of a century ago.
* A geo-coded map that allows you to find locations near you as you walk through the city.
* An opacity slider that lets you seamlessly overlay the old with the new.
* Facebook, Flickr ,Twitter and email shareability.
Time Shutter is an incredible companion for visitors, history buffs, photographers, or any San Franciscan who’s ever wondered what their city used to look like.
