Presenting with timelines is a great way to tell a story or narrate how things changed or evolved. It makes stories more powerful and puts things in perspective. Tiki-Toki is a simple web app for generating interactive timelines from your browser.
Sign up takes less than a minute, where you can instantly start uploading your photos and videos and then map them to a specific date. You can set your timeline range, choose your background or upload your own. You can also import your collection from Flickr, YouTube, and Vimeo to quickly add to your timelines. Tiki-Toki also allows you to color code specific events as categories for a more organized timeline. The timeline slides sideways seamlessly, making it ideal for touch interfaces.
Tiki-Toki is largely useful for historical timelines, presenting a developing story from the media, or just looking back at events with your family and friends. The free basic accounts will get you one timeline for free, but you can also sign up for a premium account allowing you to create unlimited timelines and embed them in your own website.
