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:

Paranormal Activity: Sanctuary
Utilizing modern smartphones’ GPS and direction-aware capabilities, this augmented reality game layers a haunted world over the real world as viewed through the user’s phone. Players complete missions and cast spells in real-world locations all over the world.

PlateMate
Crowdsource nutrition with PlateMate, an app that allows users to upload a picture of their meals, have what’s in it assessed by others, and get the nutritional value calculated by a special tool built by researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

iTar
The iTar is an iPad dock and app funded through Kickstarter that turns the popular tablet into a guitar simulator fit for professional players.

Flow
Amazon’s new Flow app uses visual recognition technology to search product information on anything in the Amazon database that the user’s phone is pointed at, from Nutella to aphid traps. Consumers can then order the products right from their phones.

Tweat.it
Never leave what you’re going to have for lunch up to chance again. Tweat.it is an app that automatically locates food trucks in New York City using the trucks’ location announcement tweets to update user maps on where they are, and keep users aware of which trucks are in their general vicinity at all times.
