An App for That
Remember how much you totally loved Facebook’s new Messenger app (JK please get it off our phones forever)? Well, there’s a chance Facebook’s going to be releasing another new app — and no, we’re not talking about that Slingshot thing.
Facebook has apparently built an app codenamed “Moments,” according to Techcrunch. The app, should it be released, would reportedly let users share personal updates with small groups of friends and family.
Scheduling a coffee date can be a logistical nightmare, a whirling dance of quick back-and-forth emails: “Where should we go?”; “What neighborhood are you in?”; “Do you have a favorite spot?”; “You pick the place, I’ll be there!”; “What time is best for you?”; and finally the sociopathic, “I’m up for anything!”
Up For Coffee is an app that wants to streamline the whole process so that you can skip the chatter and save time for more important daily hassles. It was created by eCoustics.com founder Brian Mitchell, who bootstrapped the production costs to build the app as a side-project.
GSN must have missed the memo that nobody gives a hoot about apps anymore.
If this listing is to be believed, GSN is currently looking to cast a new reality show called App Wars, wherein a team of programmers will make lucky individuals’
presumably shitty totally innovative app ideas come to life. As per the casting call:
Meanwhile in Canada
New apps: who needs ‘em, amiright? Sure, it seems exciting at first to be able to order pizza or determine what a mannequin is wearing all from the comfort of your iPhone screen, but ultimately, don’t we all just want to check Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram and be done with it?
A recent survey by Deloitte confirms that the average number of smartphone apps downloaded per month has been decreasing over the past year in the U.K., the Telegraph reports.
App for That
Teen sexting has somehow become the police’s number one priority of late — not just in the U.S., but in Canada, too.
A sex crimes unit of the Ontario Provincial Police is gearing up to debut an app that helps kids reject requests for naked photos, Yahoo News reports.
We all want pizza all the time, but five clicks on Seamless is way too hard when you’re literally starving.
A new and revolutionary ordering app called Push for Pizza will eradicate this age-old problem by allowing users to order pizza at the push of a single button, according to the Daily Dot.
Dating: The Final Frontier
Facebook is being annoying — again. The social network is done letting you instant message your friends in its main app and instead will now force you to download another battery-sucking app dubbed Messenger.
App for That
Friends can be terrible matchmakers, and blind dates are notorious for going horribly, horribly wrong. But if you’re willing to give it all another chance, you can now do it from the comfort of your iPhone.
A new app called Hitch can add a little mystery to your mobile dating life by letting your friends set you up on virtual blind dates. Finally, you can look for love without the superficial swipes.
App for That
Being popular is hard. But being social media popular is really hard.
Facebook released today a new iPhone app called Mentions, but you’re not cool enough to use it. It’s only “verified public figures” — i.e. Katy Perry and others who have a blue check mark next to their names — in an effort by the social network to wean them off competing websites (cough, Twitter, cough) when they feel the urge to overshare.
You love your dog. He is just the sweetest, most loyal pooch in the world. He’s handsome too. You want to show him off to your Instagram followers, but the damn dog just won’t sit still for the forced photo shoot. Ughh, that’s the worst.
A genius new photo-sharing app by Bark&Co that is basically Instagram for the pet-obsessed will solve all your dog photography woes.
