ThrowBack is a photography application that sends your past to your future present. It captures a photograph but does not save it to your phone. Instead the photo is thrown into the future and emailed back to you at a random time, anywhere from 1 month to 5 years from the date the photo was taken. In an era where our photographs are overexposed on countless sharing platforms, ThrowBack provides a unique opportunity to forget your memories so they can be remembered again.
You can further specify when you want to receive your ThrowBack, either as a complete surprise, in a date range, or on a specific day 1 month to 5 years into the future. You can also include a message and tag other email addresses to receive the ThrowBack on the same day as you.

Does exactly what it's supposed to!
I downloaded this app about a year ago, took a couple pictures, and ended up deleting the app and forgetting all about the pictures. I just received an email with a photo from a year ago and it was very touching. It was a picture of me and a girlfriend I'm no longer with but it was sweet to see nonetheless. Great idea for an app and it does what it is supposed to! Definitely surprised me today.
Not iOS 8 compatible
As others have said, this app no longer works under iOS 8. I cannot get beyond the "Register" screen and the app seems to be abandoned.
Buggy in ios8 and discontinued app?
Was a 5 star app. Until it stopped working with ios8 it seems. Picking a date brings up a white box that you can't edit or exit. And there's this upload issue where it doesn't upload your pics anymore. Sent them a few emails but never heard back. Wonder if this is a dead app now.
Few days later...upload still doesn't work. Guess app is dead
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
