Need Cuddles? There’s An App for That and It’s Called ‘Cuddlr’

Cuddlr

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.

Hanx Writer is a Typewriter Simulator App by Tom Hanks

Hanx Writer

Tom Hanks is awesome, no doubt about that. He’s a great actor, a master of his craft, and it’s no secret that he loves them typewriters. So much so that he has spearheaded the development of the Hanx Writer. It’s a typewriter simulation app for your iPad so you can type on your tablet and feel as if you were typing on an actual typewriter.

The app features not one but several models of typewriters so you can switch between one or the other if you feel like a change of pace. Documents created using the app can shared, email, or printed, so it’s not a very huge departure from your typical Notes app.

You can download Hanx Writer here.

Sad Tweets: Revel in the Loneliness of Your Lonely Tweets

Sad Tweets

 

Social media is all about interaction and connecting with people virtually over the internet. Unfortunately, not all posts are created equal, and some of the things you’ve posted probably got ignored or overlooked every once in a while by your network.

It so happens that an app that looks up your old, sad tweets from the dredges of Twitter’s archives exists: Sad Tweets. An apt name, isn’t it? It was built by creative agency Party NY and it basically parses through your Twitter feed to look for tweets that were never favorited, re-tweeted, or replied to by others.

Who knows? You might learn a thing or two about what to post (and what not to post.)

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.
