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’s what’s on our radar.
Forget the old log book, Envoy is a minimal but very pretty app that can greet and keep track of your office's visitors. The app can collect names and signatures, take photos and print badges. We imagine it'd be a great tool for any startup or any small business.
We really like the look and feel of the new calendar app, Canary. The iOS app integrates with your Google and Facebook calendars and allows users to propose multiple meeting times and send invitations seamlessly. We also like the snazzy meeting booking features.
Humming Timing is a bit like musical chairs. The app allows you to set a timer and the app will play tunes from your music library until time runs out. Don't you wish you had this app when you were a summer camp counselor?
The concert ticketing app WillCall has launched an amazing new feature, BarTabs. Powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLT), BarTabs allows you to buy drinks at participating venues with your name, without putting down a credit card. How? When users download the WillCall app on their smartphone, the bar's iPad pings your phone over BLE, prompting you to open a tab. Then, proceed to order drinks like your credit card is behind the bar. Awesome.
As we mentioned on Friday, we're excited to try out Twitter co-founder Biz Stone's newest venture, Jelly. The app allows users to pose questions via Twitter and Facebook and get answers from followers, in the same vein as Quora. We love the design of this app too.
That’s all from us this week! What new apps are you loving? Let us in the comments!
