Travel back in Christmas time with Holiday Time Machine for iPhone

Holiday Time Machine is fun little app that includes over 2,500 Holiday videos from 1898 to 2012. That's over a century of history! You get to browse by year and choose from 1-60 different videos for each year. The types of videos include famous scenes from television shows, commercials, trailers, and even sometimes entire motion pictures (for the older videos). For example, in 1990, you can watch a 2 minute trailer for Home Alone and in 1992, Mariah Carey's performance of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is available.

Holiday Time Machine is a universal app for iPhone and iPad and supports Airplay so that you can easily share to your AppleTV or other Airplay supported device. Want to bring your friends with you on your blast to the past? Share your favorite videos to Facebook and Twitter so that they join in on the nostalgia with you.

There's also one video that we are all familiar with that can be accessed quickly at any time -- the Virtual Yule Log! Just tap the tree icon in the upper lefthand corner of the screen to get to it.

What I love about Holiday Time Machine is the memories that some of these videos remind me of that are completely unrelated to the videos themselves except for the fact that my brain associates them with the same year that something else significant happened. Holiday Time Machine is also helping me create a list of movies I want to watch this season due to all the trailers. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to mark videos as favorites, so I have to keep track of this list elsewhere.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think!
