Lifehaps Lets You Record Your Life, Death, And Everything In Between

07Jul08

Lifehaps allows you to create a timeline filled with all of your life events – Starting with your birth and ending with, well, you know.

It’s actually a lot more fun to use than I originally thought and really easy to get started.  To sign up for your account, you just need to select your favorite color from the ones provided.  This brings you to the next page where you need to drag a little “stork carrying a baby” icon up to your timeline onto the day you were born.  From there you’ll be asked to fill out a typical registration form.  What comes next is entirely up to you.  You can start adding schools you attended, first jobs, injuries you sustained as a teenager, and even add the day you bought your first beater car.

Each event you add can be customized, and you can add relevant links and a photo.  You can also add friends and share your events.  There are categories all set up for you, so if you’re having trouble deciding what events to add, it’s pretty much already done.  There are 11 events to choose from and each have categories within them.  For example, if you chose to add “romance” to your timeline, you would then be given the option to choose first date, first kiss, engagement, wedding, etc.

I’m not exactly sure who is going to find Lifehaps most useful.  My initial thought was people who are starting a family and want a way to keep track of every “first” moment in their life – first home, first baby, first family vacation, whatever.  But after thinking about it for a while I decided that this could be used by just about anyone who wants to be able to look back and see what they’ve done over the years.  If you’re an actor you can keep track of all of the crazy jobs you’ve done, if you’re a vagabond you can record all of the strange places you’ve stayed, and if you’re a serial dater you can keep a record of all the fabulous restaurants you’ve been taken to over the years.  Here’s my screencast tour of Lifehaps:
