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:

GO
This app connects users directly with real-time news in a specific area. Taking advantage of Facebook and Twitter’s geolocation features, GO gathers breaking news from regular people who are actually on the scene – potentially revolutionizing citizen journalism.

Ford Mustang
The upcoming 2013 Mustang will feature a built-in system to monitor the vehicle’s status via a screen in the dashboard. The ‘Track Apps’ also record the car’s stats, so drivers can access their car’s best performances.

Believe-o-Magic
Macy’s augmented reality app allows children (or anyone) to pose with characters from Macy’s animated holiday classic ‘Yes, Virginia.’ Users then take a photo, which can be used to create a holiday e-card.

CardMunch
LinkedIn’s iPhone app allows users to take photos of business cards, which are digitized and searched for in the LinkedIn database, instantly connecting people’s real-life business cards with the greater wealth of information available on their LinkedIn profile.

MooseJaw
Clothing company MooseJaw introduced a playful app to accompany their winter catalogue. Users place their device’s camera over pictures of the catalogue’s models, and the app superimposes images of them in their underwear.
