Refresh Tells You About Who You’re About to Meet So You Can Skip the Small Talk

Refresh iOS App

The first meeting is almost always awkward. There’s only so much you can say about the weather and the traffic, and the pressure that comes with wanting to make a good first impression clearly won’t do anything for your conversational skills. What you need is information, even just the basics, about the person you’re about to meet.

If you have the luxury of time, then you could do a search and Google to browse his or her social media profiles. But if you’re running on a tight schedule, the best you can do is pull up a quick 30-second briefing of whoever you’re meeting using Refresh.

CamFind Lets You Search for Stuff By Taking a Picture


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.

Pizza Compass Shows You Where the Pizza’s At

Pizza Compass

Craving for pizza in the middle of the night? Searching for a quick meal to tide you over while you explore the city? You could try searching for pizzerias that are still open on the web or on your phone, but that could take a lot of time. It’s either that, or you could just fire up the Pizza Compass app and have it point you in the right direction.

It’s a hassle-free app that helps you find a pizzeria within a few seconds. All you have to do is fire up the app and tap the green circle beside the app’s name. The name of the closest pizza joint will then be displayed underneath the rotating slice of pizza on the screen. Mmm-hmm!

Sleep If U Can App: Take the Exact Same Picture You Set Earlier to Shut the Alarm

Alarm Clock

The mark of a good alarm clock app is when people hate it–because then, it’ll mean that it actually works. The newest alarm clock app making the rounds is called Sleep If U Can. It’s funny that they should pose that challenge, because I’m sure most people who get this app won’t be able to once the alarm goes off.

What sets this app apart from the rest is what you’re supposed to do in order to shut it up. There’s no snooze button or password to enter. Instead, you’ll have to get up and take the exact same photo of whatever it was you chose to set as your wake-up shot earlier.

Hackycat Wants You to Kick Cats and Collect Cheezburgers–All In the Name of Fun!


Love them or hate them, cats and the hoards of cat-related memes, games, and images spread all over the interwebs are here to stay. The newest is Hackycat, which wants you to save cats from exploding–because for some reason, they’ll get blown to bits if they hit the ground–by kicking them. It’s either a sore behind or, well, an impending explosion, so I’d definitely choose the former if I were a cat.

To make things more fun and challenging, the player can get some awesome power-ups and superkicks by collecting cheezburgers (without the ‘E’), because yeah, we all know the secret to a long and active life are these calorie-filled sandwiches. Hit the break for a trailer of the game.
