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

‘Bookmarking’ Tool Lets Mobile Users Tag Real-World Places

A startup in Finland has created a ‘world marking’ app called ‘Grafetee‘ that allows businesses to easily reach mobile users with relevant location-based information. Grafetee users can bookmark a specific address or even website to receive relevant details based on their geolocation.

Desktop App Breaks Up Time For Better Work Flow & Time Management

By utilizing the Pomodoro technique the Focus Booster desktop app helps to break up daunting tasks into 25-minute focused work segments. The Pomodoro technique (Pomodoro is Italian for tomato) demarcates bite-sized work blocks, interspersed with break sessions, to keep the user’s mind fresh through out the day.

App Integrates Your Twitter Feed Into A ‘Social’ Radio Station

While you’re jamming to your favorite song, you’re curious about what’s trending on your social networks- but you don’t want the hassle of shifting between a music and a social app. The Social Radio is here to help solve your problem. The application uses text-to-speech technology to let you listen to tweets and Facebook status updates while you listen to the music you love.

Facebook App Analyzes Your Social DNA

Wolfram|Alpha has developed a new service that analyzes your Facebook data and generates a personal analytics report. After authenticating the app and signing in, a long report with over 60 sections details all the information you could ever want to know about your account. There is data about the geographic, age, gender, and relationship distribution of your friends and stats about your recent activity on the social network.

iPad App Lets You Annotate Photos With Your Voice

PicView‘s free iPad app lets you take or upload a photo and add voice annotations to it using a simple recorder. Add audio to the visual ‘memories’ to remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you snapped the picture.
