PSFK Picks: Top Five Apps Of The Week
A roundup of the latest, most fascinating apps we've learned about this past week.
Each week PSFK features many new and innovative apps. To give the best their due, we’ve compiled a roundup of the most interesting and creative apps written about on the site this past week:
Find My Friends
Included in the upcoming iOS 5 update, Find My Friends is Apple’s new location-sharing app similar to Foursquare and Google’s Latitude. It allows users to track their friends and family members who also use the service.
Do you have varied and unique interests and want to meet others who share them? CircleMe is a new social platform currently in private beta that tracks your ‘likes’ and interests from Facebook, Foursquare, and other sites. It then connects you with similar people, and allows you to ‘trust,’ or follow, their updates.
EventSound is a Facebook app that gathers the musical tastes of people attending a particular event and creates a playlist based on what the attendees like and listen to.
Earn loyalty rewards at merchants with Tagtile, a device-based frequent customer engagement platform. At checkout, users launch the Tagtile app and tap it on a special cube, registering their visit. Merchants can set up return buyer or loyalty rewards, contests, points or coupons for customers to earn.
Ever want to ‘try on’ clothing or makeup while shopping without actually doing so? ModiFace allows shoppers to do just that, with in-store kiosks, mobile apps, and webcams that can take pictures of users and apply clothing or products to their image.
