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:

shazam for clothes

Shazam For Clothes Identifies What TV Characters Are Wearing

Music identification company Shazam is seeking to change the way we interact with TV and fashion, by developing Shazam to include a means of identifying the fashion you see on television. To identify a song, Shazam uses a sample of audio content and matches it to a vast database. The company has expanded this audio tagging to its TV feature within the app so users can also tag TV shows, which will pull up content on the show such as trivia, cast bios and merchandise.


Plan A Wedding On An iPhone

Wedding site  is getting an iPhone friendly version. The app will retain many of the features available on the original site, but with an added social networking component that makes use of the iOS camera capability. Users will be able to snap pictures of wedding-related items that interest them to share with selected buddies. Like the newly-redesigned site, the iOS service is easy to navigate, and visuals feature heavily.


Transit Platform Tells Users Whether To Take A Cab Or The Train

Transit aggregator Corral Rides gives users multiple transportation options in one app. You simply type in your destination and it shows you pricing and schedule or time for each option. The app can even show you Lyft, Sidecar, and Uber availability so you won’t have to open them all. It’s also integrated with NextBus so you’ll know when to speed it up or take your time when catching the bus or subway.


Twitter Images Of Local Events Keeps Neighbors Connected

Vizible, one of the latest iOs Twitter apps to come out, allows users to search for Twitter photos based on location. By simply choosing a location radius, you can browse through photos that were shared on Twitter in your area. You can look for photos within a radius of 1km, 5km, 10km, or even 50km and and retweet your favorite images, among other capabilities.


Uber For Massages Lets Its Users Book On-Demand Relaxation

Zeel originally launched in 2012 with their mobile service which enabled you to find wellness professionals in the local area. Same-day massage seemed to be the most requested service, so the company recently launched an iOS app allowing users to send out a request to masseurs in the local area for an in-house Swedish or deep tissue massage, lasting from 60-90 minutes. The request will keep circulating until someone accepts the appointment and starts making their way to your house.
