FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Attention all you techies looking for the latest and greatest applications for your smart phones. I present to you a messaging program that is ahead of its time... Sort of. Even though the app has barely gotten off the ground, it's already buzzing around the tech world.

Imagine if you could send yourself or your loved ones a video greeting to the future.

The app is called "Evergram" and its creator Duncan Seay based his idea off the 1993 Michael Keaton film "My Life." In the movie, Keaton's character "Bob Jones" is dying of kidney cancer, so he begins filming short video diaries to his unborn son to watch following "Bob's" inevitable death.

Being a cancer survivor himself, Seay wanted users to be able to leave "an everlasting telegram" for loved ones.

Here’s how the app works: while it hasn't been officially released yet, the app is used to send pre-recorded messages to a future date like a wedding, graduation, birthday, etc. Once that date and time have been selected, you just hit record. Then your greeting will arrive in the recipient’s e-mail on that date.

So let’s say you're getting married. You can create an album for friends to save their messages to. Then you can always go back and re-live the memories of your special day.
