PSFK Picks: Top Five Apps Of The Week
Phone sensor monitors your enviornment for toxins and a Barbecue sensor notifies when food is ready.
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:
Lapka Pro is a free iPhone app that accompanies the personal environment monitor to measure your surroundings for elements like radioactivity and humidity.
The BBiQ is a Bluetooth sensor and app that notifies the griller when it’s time to flip the food, when to add seasoning, and when the food is cooked. That leaves the cook free while waiting for the food to be ready.
The Wish app knows what users want to buy and creates personalized feeds of products for them to browse. The service also allows online merchants to upload their own products, which Wish will push into the recommendation streams of those most likely to buy them.
New York start-up Pixie Scientific has developed a ‘smart diaper’ that can detect possible urinary tract infections, kidney dysfunction and dehydration. The accompanying smartphone app can transmit the information directly to a physician.
