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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
