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.

Google One

 

Want to change the world? You’re not alone. Sometimes you get the feeling that you’re insignificant, because you’re just one in several billion currently inhabiting the planet.

One way to get started is with One Today. It essentially features a non-profit project by reputable charities and organizations each day so you can make a pledge and make a difference. Because while you may be too busy to go out and do something, your contributions will be able to help those who are already on the field.

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.

LazyHusband App Does the Talking for Lazy Husbands

Lazy Husband

There are some things that women need to hear over and over again before they believe it. Some guys are patient enough to repeat affirmatives and reassurances each and every time, while the clever ones have found a way to save their breaths with the Lazy Husband app. It’s basically an audio recording app that lazy husbands and boyfriends can use to record and play common phrases and compliments so they won’t have to keep repeating themselves.

Wives and girlfriends are bound to find out that they’re listening to a recording instead of the real thing, but they won’t mind (at least, not that much) if they have a sense of humor.

You can download the Lazy Husband app from Google Play.

The Only Time Safe Driving is a Game is When ‘RoadWars’ is Fired Up

Road Wars

Driving isn’t a game. Not only will you be putting your life at stake, but you’ll also be risking the lives of your passengers, other drivers on the road, and pedestrians. Driving this point across is RoadWars, which turns driving into a game. It’s a passive game when you’re driving, since all you’re supposed to do is fire it up and put your phone down while you’re on the road. While it runs, the app keeps track of your driving behavior and doles out rewards for safe driving. It’ll also slap you with penalties if you speed, swerve, or use your phone while you’re driving.

RoadWars is a social game, since you’ll be playing among your friends. Eventually, you’ll be able to figure out who among your crew is the safest driver and who among them needs to pay more attention on the road when they’re driving. Coins are awarded for every ten minutes of “safe” driving. By driving safely on certain roads, you’ll also be able to “claim” them. This is where the social aspect comes in, as you’ll have the chance to “steal” roads that your friends have claimed when you’re not driving.

RoadWars is available for free for iOS devices.

Spinlister: An App That Lets You Rent Bikes From Awesome People

Spinlister

The bike movement is gaining speed and it’s great all around for people (who get some much-needed exercise) and for the environment (which benefits from lesser emissions). Not everyone can afford a bike, though, and not everyone who has one uses it on a daily basis. Pushing the movement forward and addressing these specific groups of people is Spinlister.

It’s an app that lets people who are looking for a bike rent one. It also lets those who have bikes rent them out to others. As with most rental services, fees are in order. You might be better off saving and investing in one, if you plan to ride a bike everyday. If, however, you find yourself in a different city and need a bike, then you can either visit the Spinlister website or fire up the Spinlister iOS app and rent one.

‘Tab’ App is the Easiest Way to Split the Bill

Tab App

Reach for ‘Tab’ the next time you need to split the bill. Dining out with friends and acquaintances is loads of fun, but there’s that 15-minute lull at the end where everyone’s just poring over the receipt so they can pay their share of the bill.

The Tab app makes the entire process quicker, easier, and less of a hassle. When the bill arrives, just fire Tab up and take a picture of the receipt. Pass the phone around so people can claim which items they ordered. Taxes and tips are divided among everyone, so each person can see how much they have to cough up before they pass the phone off to the next person.

Tab can be downloaded from iTunes and Google Play.

Groove to Your DNA-Inspired Theme Song

DNA Song

Want a song that you can truly call your own? Then create one with IDNAtity. It’s an app that lets you create your own theme song of sorts, even though you know close to nothing about writing or composing music.

IDNAtity mixes a bit of science with a lot of art. It essentially asks for information about your genetic makeup by asking you to upload a photo of yourself and answer questions about your appearance, like your hair color and eye color. The app also asks if you have dimples and if you can roll your tongue, because these details are, apparently, crucial in determining your genetic make-up..not.
