Rewind.me App Update Includes Coupon Rewards System

rewindRewind.me recently announced their latest updates, included in Version 1.3. The app is permission-based and pulls information from Facebook, Foursquare and Instagram check-ins to create a personal timeline of the places you’ve been. Users can display the last 50 places they’ve been or where they were on any given day, as recorded in thier social media.

The New York start-up was founded in 2011, operates with five employees and is a member of Tech Stars NYC Class of  2012. TechStars is a stat-up accelerator that provides funding from top investors. They have also received $800,000 in seed funding from First Round Capital, New World Ventures, Silicon Alley Venture partners and other large companies.

One of the most prominent new features of the Rewind.me app is the R:Factor scoring system. It works like a frequent-fliers reward system in a way. Users receive a rating number based on their visits and to a particular business and receive coupons and offer based on that number. Users can also see and compare their friends ratings. Check for rewards under the Red Tab and White Gift Box.

Other updates on the latest version include an updated home screen with a daily summery and the ability to see what you did last year on this date, as well as the year before. You can see a map and a listing of where you were on this day in history. You can share the memories the app generations on social media sites. It also offers better photo display, increased support for Instagram and lets you search locations by category (of which there are nearly 300.)

The consensus from user reviews is that it makes Foursquare more useful, encourages check-ins, and is a great concept to pool all of the different social media sites into one convenient app. They also enjoy having the historical timeline. On the downside, it’s slow to load and the privacy settings aren’t yet available.

The Rewind.me app is free and is available on Apple products and requires an iOS  6.0 or later. It is optimized for the iPhone 5.
