The Story

Deja Vu for iOS enhances your video experience to help you quickly find those memorable past times. Instead of scrolling through a long list of unrecognisable thumbnails, you can simply type in the name of the friend, words from your last bad jokes or even colors/landmarks you remember seeing. Unlike other services, Deja Vu does the tagging for you.

We achieve this by accessing various voice/image/facial recognition services, ranging from REST-ful APIs to open-source libraries. Facebook friends' faces are machine recognized, their words captioned, and even simple objects identified to provide search terms. Think of it as a personal search engine for everything in your phone. So, keep on shooting, and we'll be here to help you relive your best memories instantly.

Both the iOS app and server code is open source, they can be found at and respectively.
