The Price: $2.99
The Basics: The internet is the world’s library and YouTube is the world’s video archive. Everything you ever need to know or want to know is out there somewhere, just one proper Google search away. Still, the internet and YouTube exist as one big pile of information. Uncategorized, it sits there in a big lump of raw data with limited organization. Video Time Machine is an app with a pretty major goal: cultivate a library of thousands of videos, organize them by category and year and let your browse. Want to watch movies trailers from 1951? How about commercials from 1964? Sporting events from 1933? You can watch videos from 2011 or from 1898. It’s impressive.
The Review: Video Time Machine delivers on what it promises. Its incredibly simple layout and design ensures that there is absolutely no learning curve. Once you’ve opened the app, you already know how to use it.
