Nostalgia—Well, There's An App For That Too Everyone loves the feeling of happening upon a long forgotten photo, but this experience has unfortunately become increasingly rare. Those awesome pangs of nostalgia are hard to come by with the uber-accessibility of our photos online. But a genius new iPhone app has found a way to recapture that feeling. Throwback, developed by Pang Labs, allows you to capture images with your iPhone. But instead of storing them on your device, or uploading them to a digital album where everyone including you can access them whenever, the pictures disappear only to reappear at a later date.The app actually returns your images to you anywhere from one week to five years down the line. E-Commerce Trends: Selling and Shopping Via Social Media Earlier this year, leaked images from online retailer showed a mock-up of a new platform called Twitter Commerce.
