At Fueled, we often share an internal anthology of awesome new apps. As mobile developers, we’re lucky to hear about and download innovative new apps every day that make our lives easier, entertain us, or keep our eyes and hands busy in awkward situations.
Here’s what’s on our radar.
Refresh syncs with your phone's calendar to give you an overview of people you meet with. The app aggregates social data around every contact, then builds a profile around their interests and connections. In other words, Refresh gives you talking points and context to every meeting. Refresh also allows users to jot down tidbits and details to keep track of noteworthy details. It's a little creepy, but we imagine it's a great tool for filling awkward silences.
Elevate Brain Training
You may have good looks and six pack, but what about your smarts? Consider Elevate your personal brain trainer. Elevate challenges users with games and puzzles that are designed to boost cognitive learning to improve focus, speaking skills, processing speed, and more. There are new exercises everyday and the app closely tracks your progress. You'll be sharp as a tack in no time!
Our pal Kasper Munck recently launched his new app Stock Gains. Stock Gains shows you the true value of your portfolio by monitoring market changes and net gains after taxes. The app also takes into consideration historical data and scans news about your current porfolio.
We knew that after the massive success of Dots, an addictive Android and iOS game that reached 1 million downloads in its first week, another iteration would soon follow. And we were right: meet TwoDots. The newest puzzle app is just as pretty as its brother. Featuring a similar style game, TwoDots follows two characters through different worlds, levels, and challenges.
The newest addition to the Internet of Things is a small tracking device called Tile. Stick the small tag on anything you fear could easily be lost or stolen like an iPhone, a pair of keys, or a bike. The little device works in conjunction with an app that makes it easy to find your belongings anywhere, even if it's just stuck in a cushion. We're going to ore-order ours today!
