Looie Lets You Pee In Peace


Nothing is more frustrating than being out, needing to pee, and having nowhere to go. Cops can fine you for public urination, not to mention it’s a little gross to relieve yourself on other people’s property, so we can totally see a place for a service like Looie. It uses a location-aware app as well as a dongle to give you access to the nearest restroom that’s part of its network. Currently about to launch in Tribeca only, the founder guarantees clean facilities every time (going as far as cleaning them himself for now). It’s going to cost you $25 per month for the service, which is money well spent if you’ve found yourself in that unenviable position more often than you’d care to admit. There is no word on expansion outside of Tribeca for now, but we suspect that’s going to be highly dependant on initial demand.

Wakie App Lets You Get Wake-Up Calls from Strangers

Wakie App


You can hit snooze on your alarm, but you can’t exactly hit snooze on someone, can you? That’s what the developers of Wakie are counting on to make sure that you’re awake when your alarm goes off. It’s an app that makes alarms social in the sense that it works by having a complete stranger give you a wake up call.

Just set it up so that you’ll get a call at the desired time and go to bed. No contact information or numbers will be exchanged, and the call will automatically be disconnected after a minute to save everyone from awkward goodbyes.

Wakie is available for the iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.

Sad? Lonely? In need of a hug? Well, Cuddlr does you one better by not only finding you someone to hug, but someone you can actually cuddle with. The concept is interesting but an app that lets you meet up with strangers so you guys can cuddle is a bit…off. Cuddle is a location-based app that keeps track of people who are looking for cuddles and their current location.

Walk into an area where there’s someone in need and you’ve got yourself a cuddle buddy. Its developers say it’s safe, secure, and private but…we’ll see about that.

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.

Simple, Repetitive, Calming: Personal Zen Provides Some Much-Needed Stress Relief

Personal Zen App

When life gives you lemons, pull out your phone, fire up Personal Zen, and start playing. It’s an app that aims to reduce its players’ stress levels by having them to perform simple, repetitive actions that’ll take their mind off of their problems and hopefully relieve them of the stress that life often brings.

When we get anxious or stressed, we pay too much attention to the negatives and have less ability to see the positives in life. These habits of attention reduce our ability to cope effectively with stress and can create a vicious cycle of anxiety. Personal Zen helps to short-circuit these habits and frees you up to develop a more flexible and positive focus.
