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 these past seven days:

cocktails

Foursquare For Cocktails Shares What Friends Are Drinking In Real Time

If you’ve ever had an amazing cocktail, noted down its name and locale, but lost that precious slip of paper, Elixr can solve your problems. The new app, available for iPhone and iPod, permits users to snap shots and make comments on delicious, or not so delicious, drinks, as well as check in to see where your friends are drinking.

Google Launches Notetaking App To Challenge Evernote

Google’s Notetaking App Challenges Evernote

Google Keep is a notetaking and organization tool that is being compared to Evernote. The app enables you to type notes, add boxes to create a checklist, have voice memos transcribed automatically, and snap a photo and annotate it. Notes are stored in Google Drive and synced across all of your devices so you can access them anywhere, on desktop or mobile. There is a search function to find what you’re looking for and you can swipe a note to archive it.

Phone Reminders Let Users Know Which Groceries Are About To Expire

Two graduate students from the Miami Ad School (Christoffer Ahlen and Chelsea Frangie) have put forward an idea to the Scandanavian supermarket chain ICA. An app which will keep track of everything you’ve got in your fridge. Not only will the app keep track of what you’ve got hiding at the back of your fridge, but it will be able to tell you when the food you’ve already got is going to expire.

Turn Instagram Prints Into Large Scale Artworks

Instathis allows budding photographers to print out works for pretty reasonable prices. Users can hook their phones up to Instagram and take some choice photos, or upload their own images, select what kind of medium they would like to use and watch as a fleeting snapshot is turned into a large work of art that can be showcased at home, in the office, or anywhere it fits.

Esquire App Can Talk To Magazine Readers And Give Advice

Esquire App Talks To Magazine Readers And Gives Advice
