Are you in fear of waking up a little blurry on the events of your St Patrick’s Day celebrations tomorrow? Flashgap is an app that can help refresh your memory.

In essence, it’s a time-delayed photo sharing app that allows you to create a shared album with friends during any event or night out, but photos taken through the app disappear immediately and are only later revealed to you at midday the following day.

The idea for Flashgap was born through inspiration from the movie, ‘The Hangover’, and then created by four students in France. The founders used the credits from the movie where pictures of the night before are revealed as a basis for their app.

There are similar apps on the market like White Album, which acts like a disposable camera by not letting you see your photos until the printed versions arrive at your door; and Eversnap lets you create shared albums for events. Flashgap is a unique combination of both in a way, and it is marketed towards a younger audience.

Having soft-launched for iOS devices in December, it’s now available for Android users too.
