BeforeNow - Personal Timeline Creator and Journal


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


BeforeNow is a personal timeline creator to help you catalog your life events in a visual timeline.
Watch the video trailer -

Simply enter life experiences like you would a journal, you can enter events that happened to you in the past or add an event that is planned in the next year.
This diary software will really help your memory recall the great details that happened in your life.

BeforeNow isn't like any other timeline software available.
Most Timeline software focuses on the milestones in your life and treat each event in your life as a single point in time.
BeforeNow will show all events from start to finish.
By using a nonlinear timeline, you can look back and clearly see overlapping events in your life.
i.e. You can scroll to 1996, and clearly see who you were dating, what car you were driving, where you lived, where you went on family vacation, where you were working, etc.
No other software can give you this functionality, and it's all FREE with BeforeNow.

Once your timeline is established you can export a PDF of your events.
BeforeNow gives you the ability to AirPrint, Email or open the File in a PDF reader app such as evernote, dropbox, or iBooks.

When you create an event, you can;
-Add Photos from your camera roll, photostream or Facebook profile 
-Create Maps
-Rate the Event
-Write a note or a little story about the details
-Select the date of the event from start to finish
-Name the event
-Name the location
-List friends that were with you easily from your contacts of Facebook account

Create as many tracks (categories) as you need.
You can even create your own custom tracks, to make the software more personal to you.
To start you off, we've included these default tracks.
-Business trip
-Cell Phone
-Game Console
-Job Title
-Phone Number
-Plane Flights
-Significant other
-Sporting Event
-Tax Return

BeforeNow is completely private, nothing is posted online or to social media.
So Jump in and track any type of information that you'd like.
Try to recall as much as you can, and then add events as they happen in the future.

Very Nice

I like that it has the ability to jump around easily to any point in time and that you can see your tracks side by side. I use it to keep an eye on the books my daughter reads and to monitor the foods I eat. It works perfectly for my needs. But because the app is so flexible I can see myself using it to track many other things as well in the future. Great app.

Interesting concept

This app is perfect for tracking a child's milestones. You can go back and reference a event and see the Facebook post and/or photo. I like that you can add a custom track and maybe track weight loss for example. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to track events.


This app really helps me organize my experiences, I love to keep track of books that I read and exercises that I do. It's really versatile and intuitive, thanks for the great design!
