Use ‘Somebody’ to Send Messages to Friends Via Strangers

Somebody App

If you think about it, social media takes away from actual socialization because of the lack of in-person interactions. Aiming to inject a little bit of that back into social-centric apps is Somebody. The app literally lets you use somebody (while using Somebody–get it?) to send a personal message to your intended recipient, wherever they may be.

Here’s how it works: the user composes his message and includes any special instructions to the messenger, such as extra notes on how to deliver the message or any accompanying actions. He then chooses another user of the app in the vicinity of the recipient to deliver the message.

Fart Code App Evaluates Food According to Fart Power

Fart App

Everything you put into your body eventually comes out on the other end. If it’s bad to begin with, then you can expect it to be a wee bit worse by the time it passes through your digestive tract. An app that checks out the nutritional value of food by way of “fart power” is the Fart Code app.

Once it’s all fired up, just use your phone to scan the code on your processed food of choice. The app checks out the food’s individual ingredients and uses an algorithm to determine how toxic a fart would be, based on those ingredients.

Fart Code is available for iOS and you can download it for free here.

RunPee App Lets You Know When to Run and Pee During a Movie

RunPee App

Your doctor might’ve advised against holding your pee in, but that’s probably something you’d rather do than rush off to the bathroom in the middle of a particularly good movie. So here’s something that can spare you from unnecessary grief and save your bladder in the process: the RunPee app.

It’s basically a database that lets you know which parts of the movie you can miss without actually missing substantial action.

The RunPee tagline says it all: Because movie theaters don’t have pause buttons. The RunPee app will give you a list of 1-to-4 moments in each movie when you can run and pee. We also let you know if there is anything during or after the end credits that you should stick around for.

You might stumble across some spoilers along the way, so tap carefully. The app is available for iPhoneAndroid and Windows phones for $0.99.

Take a Picture of Your Food and This App Counts the Calories For You

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 App is Like a Digital Walkie-Talkie

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.
