Every week at Fueled, we share an internal anthology of the week's greatest 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 are some things we're keeping our eyes on this week.
Viewfinder is the brainchild of former Google, Microsoft, and Dropbox employees. It sorts your iphone photos by time and place into a really sweet interface. It also allows for group conversations around photos (think of the hilarious possibilities) and provides easy ways to share photos with friends. Your memory doesn't look this good.
The best thing about going home to mom and dad in the suburbs is the fridge full of leftovers. With this in mind, Leftover Swap was created for hungry, cheap people to link up with generous, over-cookers. But really, half of the worlds food is thrown away and the creators of Leftover Swap wanted to help put an end to waste. Simply take a picture of your leftovers and upload it to the database. Hungry foragers can scan the app and, with any luck, they'll be a piece of lasagna in your community waiting to be eaten.
Blipfoto is a sleek online photo journal that invites users to post a picture everyday with a summary. With its strict one-photo-a-day policy, you are forced to choose a single snapshot and reflect. There's already a huge community of users that interact with friends and strangers alike.
Tube Map Live
For the Londoners out there- check out the free Tube Map Live app. Using official data, the apps shows tube trains as they trickle their way across the London Underground map. Is it just me or is the Circle Line the slowest? It's mesmerizing. Be sure to check out the website.
Do you often lose sunglasses, cellphones and house keys? Don't beat yourself up about it; apparently Einstein was very forgetful. And now, there's an app for that- at least for those times when you misplace your keys or lock yourself out. KeyMe is an app that easily scans any key and stores in on a digital key ring. In times of need, the app can tell your nearest locksmith what type of key it is and the four letters and numbers representing the spacing of the teeth. Genius! It'll cost you $9.99 but it's better than being locked out on your stoop in your bathrobe.
