Rewind Launches iPhone App

Rewind, a personal data recording startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), has launched an iPhone app that privately records your activity on Safari so you can ask questions based on your web browsing history later. By default, the app doesn’t record anything when you are browsing in incognito mode. Last year, the company generated some buzz when it launched a Mac app that records on the system in a compressed video format everything you do during the day — the app only works on Macs with Apple Silicon. Later, users can ask very specific questions, such as who said something in particular during a Zoom meeting. Rewind can also be used to find a website you visited on Chrome based on the content of the page. The startup said that it processes everything locally on the system.
