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


Social Network Combines Best Elements Of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook 
Pheed is a new app-based platform that combines successful features from popular social media networks. Elements that can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Ustream, and SoundCloud, can also be seen on Pheed.


App Tracks How Much Time Users Are Wasting On Computers
Recess‘ is a productivity app developed during the ‘Hacking Energy Culture hackathon’ held by GOOD earlier this month. It was the winning solution for generating new ways to interface with energy consumption, waste, and preservation.


MasterCard Lets Shoppers Buy Items Anywhere On-The-Go
MasterCard has introduced a digital service that allows consumers to use any payment card or enabled device to discover enhanced shopping experiences online, in-store, or on the go. MasterPass enables consumers to make payments quickly and easily from wherever they are.


DJ Software Developers Create Mixer For Beginners 
Traktor is a key industry DJ software created by Native Instruments. The easy to use iPad app relies entirely on a touchscreen interface to mix the music. Load a song from iTunes, and then use gestures like dragging, pinching, and touch to work a track.


Smartphone Voice-Tracking Creates Emotional States 
Xpression is for patients visiting psychologists for a mental illness. Oftentimes, they are asked to record their emotions throughout the day and report back to their doctor. This task is often forgotten or not done properly, so Xpression is a new app that uses voice tracking to pinpoint a mood.
