Each week PSFK features many new and innovative mobile apps. To give the best their due, we’ve compiled a roundup of the most interesting and creative apps we’ve written about this past week:

Snapette
Need to be up on the latest fashion trends? Snapette allows users to search, share, and take photos of their favorite bags and shoes. Details about location, price, and brand are included in each photo. To find something specific, Snapetters can search by brands, stores, what’s near or trending.

LIVESTRONG Cancer App
Cancer support society LIVESTRONG will release an app that will help cancer patients understand and track their illness. Journaling and audio-recording features allows users to monitor their well-being and compare it with treatments, with data presented as graphs. Confidential patient information would be protected and stored locally on users’ devices.

GlassesOff
This app professes to stave off the deterioration in near-field vision that comes with aging eyes. Developed by an Israeli professor and backed by clinical trials, the app enables an average reduction in ‘eye age’ from 50.5 to 41.9. It will be launched for the iPhone (although available as computer software) next year and will cost around $90.

Disney 'AppMATes' Toys Interact With Virtual World On The iPad

AppMATes
AppMATes are accessories for Disney’s iPad apps that interact with the program through integrated sensors that make contact with the iPad’s screen. The first accessories are from Cars 2, allowing fans to explore and interact with the movie’s virtual world and characters.

Google+
The Google ‘+Hangouts’ chat feature for the search giant’s social network will be integrated with the Android 2.3+ mobile app. A mobile user can now video chat with 8 others, collaborate on docs, doodle together, and make the chat a public broadcast so others can observe the activities.
