Used the BreakupText App to Break Up? Then Get the MakeupText App to Get Back Together

makeupapp

So you broke up with your other half on a whim, and now you want to get back together.

If you were a jerk and went through with your breakup with the use of BreakupText, here’s a bit of good news for you: an anti-breakup app exists and it’s aptly called the MakeupText app. Both apps are developed by the same people. In this case, the MakeupText app lets you, the user, spew apologies and sweet nothings with the goal of trying to get your ex-sweetheart back.

The only problem is.. will he (or she) fall for it? I mean, you did just do the breakup through text, of all things.Continue Reading

Eight-Year-Old Spends $6,000 on In-App Purchases–Now See Why You Should Keep Your Phone Away From Kids?

Girl Spends 6K on Apple Apps

There are many reasons why you shouldn’t leave a kid alone with your phone. For one, they might delete messages or important emails without your knowledge. That could spell a lot of trouble for you, especially if they have to do with work. Another reason is that they often tap buttons they shouldn’t and end up making purchases that they haven’t cleared with you. This has happened to so many people all over the world, and yet parents still leave their kids with their devices.

Another case is that of Lee Neale and his eight-year-old daughter, who spend over £4,000 (about $6,000) on in-app purchases. Apparently, his daughter had seen him key in his password to purchase stuff and memorized it, keying it in later on when she made her own purchases.

Lee pleaded with Apple to cancel the purchases, but the former didn’t relent at first, and understandably so. It was only when Lee went to the media with his story that Apple granted him a refund. Continue Reading

Snapcat is the Catty Version of Snapchat for Kitties

Snapcat

Got a photogenic cat? Then show the world your precious kitty by letting your pet take its own selfies with the help of the Snapcat app. Once you fire it up, a red dot will appear on the screen. In theory, your cat will be transfixed by this dot and will bat at it with its paw. This action will signal your front-facing camera to snap a picture of your feline companion while its at play. What could be cuter or more adorable than that?

CamFind Lets You Search for Stuff By Taking a Picture

CamFind

So you have a picture of a bottle with foreign text on it. You can’t read it and you certainly can’t search for it conventionally since you can’t type the foreign characters. What you need at this point is a query-by-image search engine like CamFind that will use that image as the query to present you with matching hits.

CamFind will basically turn your camera into a portal to uncover the unknown. All you have to do is point and shoot and the app will take care of the rest.

This App Makes You Slap, Shake, and Flip Your Phone to Turn the Alarm Off

Wake App

I think it’s safe to say that alarms get on most people’s nerves, especially when it’s early in the morning. But that’s the point of the alarm, isn’t it? To annoy people so much so that they feel compelled to wake up, just so they can shut the alarm up. By then, most alarms will have achieved their goal, which was to wake the person up in the first place.

One such app is Wake. It doesn’t have the most annoying of alarms, but it’s enough to wake you up because of how you’re supposed to snooze the alarm.

Awesome Smart PJs Will Read Bedtime Stories to Your Kids

Smart PJs

Pajamas don’t get any smarter than this. The aptly-named Smart PJs not only provide warmth and comfort, but they’ll also read your kids a bedtime story. Those patterns might just look like dots to you, but they’re more than just some design the pajamas’ makers decided to go with. Instead, they’re actually QR codes in disguise that’ll make your smartphone read a bedtime story or two to your child once you scan them.

Tetris Your House: How Many Tetris Blocks Will It Take to Fill Up Your Home?

Tetris House

They sure don’t make video games like they used to. There are only a few games nowadays that can truly make you use your old noggin. Remember Tetris? I remember spending many summer afternoons arranging Tetris blocks all over the screen with the game booted up on our old Family Computer.

You can still play the game provided you have the right emulator. On a related note, taking the classic game’s concept of building blocks is this neat little web app by Movoto that was designed by Megan Radich. If you’ve ever wondered how many Tetris blocks it would take to cover or build your entire house, then wonder no more…

FreeSpace Helps You Keep Your Gmail Account In Check

FreeSpace

Gmail is pretty generous with the amount of space they give you. If you have a free account, you get 10 gigabytes. When you upgrade to one of their plans, this limit is pushed up to 25 gigabytes. You’d have to be the type who archives everything in order to reach the limit, because it seems highly unlikely that you ever will. But hey, it could happen–and if you think you’re bordering on full email capacity, then you need FreeSpace.

LivesOn Keeps Your Twitter Feed Alive, Even When You’re Dead

Lives On

There’s a special group of Internet users that I call the Tweet Freaks. They’re the people who can’t go an hour without checking their Twitter feeds or posting updates about mundane stuff that no one else would really care about. If you have people in your network who’re like that, then you might want to tell them about _LIVESON. If you’re a Tweet Freak yourself, then I’m sure you’d love to heard about this as well. But just to make it less painful for everyone’s eyes, let’s call it LivesOn.

LivesOn is a Twitter tool like no other, promising to give you a ‘social afterlife’ once you pass in the physical world. It will ‘learn’ your tastes, preferences, and syntax by analyzing your current feed, so that it can continue posting status updates on the micro-blogging site even when you’re already dead. In short, LivesOn allows you to tweet from the grave, unless the person you appoint as your executor decides to give it the ax.

The service launches on March 2013.
