Ceres-Calorie-App

Counting calories involves a lot more work than you think. From keeping food diaries that you have to update with every meal and snack to looking up alternatives in case what you just ate isn’t on the list, calorie counting can be a pain. The good news is that there’s an app that’s currently in the works that makes it easier for weight watchers and health buffs.

The project is called Ceres, and it’s basically an app that lets users count calories by having them take pictures of their food. The actual counting is up to the app.

PackPoint Makes Packing As Simple and Easy As Possible

PackPoint

Want to know what kind of person someone is? Just look at his friends, what he eats, what he wears, how he treats others, what he spends his money on–and how he packs. For example, if he just throws stuff in at the last minute, then you can probably say he’s a reckless (and perhaps adventurous) type of guy. If he makes extensive lists and packs several days before his trip, then you can say he’s a neat and orderly guy who likes being organized.

Whichever type of person or packer you are, there’s an app called PackPoint that can help you out.

Share Your Thoughts, Read People’s Secrets With the ‘Secret’ App

Secret App

 

Secrets. Everyone has them. There’s a reason why they’re kept hidden–to keep a relationship going, to keep a business running, to keep a family together. But keeping it in will eventually take its toll on the secret keeper. If you find yourself in a similar situation but want to express yourself somehow, then you can always talk about it in ‘Secret.’

It’s an app that lets people share their innermost thoughts and read other people’s secrets, too. What makes it different from other apps is the fact that only people in that person’s list of contacts can see the secret.

Your secrets are delivered anonymously to the people in your Contacts who are on Secret. They can view, love and comment on your post. When friends love your secret, it will be shared to their friends. If they love the post, it can reach even further. When your secret travels beyond two degrees, it will be marked with your general location, like “California”. People beyond two degrees will be able to love your post or comments, but won’t be able to add comments to the conversation.

While it’s anonymous in the sense that it won’t reveal your name or identity, you might want to be careful about revealing too much details because some people in your address book might figure it out and realize that it’s you.

You can check the app out here.

Got a Secret? Whisper It To The World–With Whisper

Whisper App

 

Do you have some things you want to get off your back? Some confessions you want to reveal, or some secrets that you want to share? Everybody does. But most people don’t, for many reasons–the obvious one being that they could potentially hurt others or cost them their jobs.

When keeping things to yourself seems too heavy a burden, there’s one app you can turn to: Whisper. It’s kind of like a social network where people share and check out each other’s secrets. Everything’s anonymous, so you don’t have to worry about getting found out or discovered. Just make sure you choose a username that people can’t link to you and hide your location from your posts as an extra measure to keep your identity a secret.

You can choose to take a photo or choose a photo to accompany your post. You could also just type in your secret or thoughts and the app will find an appropriate image for your post. Whisper is available for free and can be downloaded from iTunes App Store and Google Play.

Jelly App: Don’t Ask Google, Ask Your Friends Instead

Jelly App

 

There are some questions that Google can’t provide the answers to–and for those questions, there’s Jelly. It’s an app that makes asking questions and getting answers more social, because it allows users to ask family and friends for answers instead. It’s best for questions that are framed with an accompanying image, as the app allows users to point, shoot, and ask about whatever it is they’re looking at.

In case the person you’ve asked is just as clueless as you, then he or she can forward the question to another friend who might have the answers.

PhoneTag

Sometimes, text messages aren’t enough. Whether it’s a declaration of love or a description of whatever it is you want your significant other to pick up, PhoneTag will be able to help you out. It’s an app that sort of works like a digital walkie-talkie: it lets you take a photo and record a voice message to send along with it.

It’s a notch behind video and one step ahead mere audio messages. I’m sure there’s a niche out there for users who prefer this over just video or audio. The app is free to download from the iTunes App Store.

Su Chef App Generates Recipes Based On What You Have

Su Chef App

Anyone can follow the instructions in a cookbook and cook something. It takes a certain level of skill, a bit of talent, and a whole lot of experience to prepare full meals from scratch. In case you’ve got a refrigerator and cupboard full of random stuff and don’t really have time to run to the supermarket before supper, then the Su Chef app can help you out.

Instead of presenting recipes with the ingredients each dish requires, you’re supposed to key in the ingredients that you have. It’ll go through its database of over a hundred thousand recipes to find what dishes you can make with what you currently have. Aside from having tons of recipes built in, it also comes with a shopping list feature and lets you build menus based on a special diet, like Paleo, vegetarian, and high fiber, among others.

Su Chef can be downloaded from iTunes for $1.99.

‘BetterMe’ App Shames You Into Becoming a Better Person

Better Me App

What motivates you to become a better person? What makes you want to achieve your goals? For most people, it’s self-satisfaction. For others, it’s peer pressure and approval from other people. In a sense, the BetterMe app would seem like a better fit for the latter group, don’t you think?

BetterMe is described as an app that utilizes public humiliation to encourage the user to be on time, break bad habits, keep appointments, and be a better person overall. It features an alarm clock, a goal tracker, and a GPS check-in system that work together to make sure you complete your tasks–or else.

GPS Check-ins: First input the address and time of your gym, class, or work schedule. Then the app will use GPS to check if you arrived at your destination on time. If not, then you will be shamed on Facebook!
Goals: Goals are announced on Facebook. It asks your friends to hold you accountable. The app will later ask if you have achieved your goal and if not then you will be shamed on Facebook.
Alarm: Snooze this alarm clock and receiving a shaming immediately.

BetterMe is available from the iTunes App Store for free.
