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:

Girls-Only App Lets Them Review And Recommend Guys

Dating App Lets Girls Review And Recommend Guys

Described as “the first database of men, built by women, for women,” Lulu shows numerical scores across a number of categories such as appearance, humor, manners, ambition, first kiss, sex, and commitment. Girls can choose a photo of a guy and add his name to the database along with hashtags so other girls can see what’s good about him and what to watch out for.

App Picks Out The Most Tweetable Sentences From Online Articles

Paul Ford, former web editor of Harper’s, thinks that ‘sharing is hard work.’ That is why he created the web extension SavePublishing. Within a couple clicks, you can extract any line from the web and post it to Twitter. Once you have saved the tool to your bookmark tab, you can use it on any webpage. When you click it, it will highlight the best lines and, if you are signed into Twitter, create a tweet box for you.
