Each week PSFK features many new and innovative apps. To highlight the some of the best, we’ve compiled a roundup of the most interesting and creative apps written about on the site this past week:

Plugin Notifies Driver If Car Is Being Stolen Or Needs A Tune-Up [Video]

Moj.io is a small device that can essentially turn any vehicle into a smart car. The compact cellular radio plugs into the OBD (on-board diagnostics) port, which can be found in all cars built in 1995 or after. Moj.io then allows the user to track, diagnose, and monitor the vehicle via an app from anywhere in the world.

Re/Max Real Estate Agents Adopt Passbook Business Cards

Vizibility is the first company to use Passbook for sharing Mobile Business Cards and RE/MAX Real Estate is becoming the first to implement it on a large scale, allowing its employees to conveniently exchange digital information.

Scan Eyes To Unlock Smartphones

EyeVerify is a security software that allows users to access their smartphone just by looking at it. The software identifies individuals by their “eyeprints” and claims that the method is as accurate as a fingerprint or iris scan.

Yelp-Style Reviews Written Solely By Top Chefs

Chefs Feed features 600 qualified chefs who make up the list of curators. Some of the highly regarded chefs include Mario Batali and Thomas Keller.

Foursquare Extension Tells Bar-Hoppers Where To Go Next

In the adapt-or-die technology industry, the social-networking giant is trying to augment their location-based services to provide more. Rager, the newest in a line of Foursquare Connected Apps that are designed to get you even more out of your check-ins and Foursquare experience, does just that.
