PSFK Picks: Top Five Apps Of The Week
A bracelet facilitates long-distance relationships and a web program lets people with no coding skills make an app.
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:
The invention by Kwamecorp links to an app that, when activated, transmits a vibration — much like that of a phone — to the bracelet, allowing two people to ‘touch’ each other from great distances.
Adsy is a mobile web app currently raising funds on Kickstarter. It would let users create apps with multiple pages, photos, sound, and more options on-the-go without any knowledge of coding.
Supper is a Spotify app that pairs recipes with carefully selected tunes to match the dishes. Each recipe comes with two playlists — one to listen to while you cook up your meal and one to listen to as you eat.
University of Rochester researchers created an app called nEmesis that scans Twitter for cases of possible food poisoning, and then tracks users who tweeted symptoms such as vomiting and abdominal pain for 72 hours. In four months, the app detected 480 possible cases of food poisoning.
To help alleviate driver frustration on the road, an app called Blow Up Traffic lets users appear to blow things up in front of them by yelling or honking. An iPhone mounted on a dashboard provides a view of the (virtual) destruction.
