Realtime hyper-local social networking for travellers.
Bit like Rando but with live video, PeekInToo is a global social network that lets users be nosy for a short amount of time. Using a map to navigate, users select a location nearby — or on the other side of the world, if they wish — and pick another user who is accepting requests. The recipient receives a notification that someone wants to ‘Peek’ and they can accept or decline, before holding up their camera to let the other user see what they’re seeing in real time.
And that’s what it is.
This app works like Qwiki when it first came out. It’s actually a pretty relaxing way to digest the news by having it read to you in a dynamically-generated photo/video/infographic mash-up.
In terms of the visuals it scrapes content relating to words in the article (from stock images to maps, dates, times and quotes), and for the majority of the time, it doesn’t do a bad job at all!
Puma - Run Navi
Nice idea for city runners.
Interesting app combining a number of feeds alongside learned behaviour, to alert you as to the best times to do the things you love.
Instagram for Doctors as a knowledge-share tool.
The Paypal partnership seems unnecessary, but nice little exposure campaign.
A couple of months old but the fact this is real not concept is awesome.
This is great. It was also the Appstore’s 50 Billionth download.
Huggies - Tweet Pee
Nice rip off of the arduino plant water hacks from a couple years back. This device attaches to the nappy and detects humidity changes. Once it notices the baby’s started flooding, it tweets the parents to let them know a change is in order. A handy iPhone app tallys the tweets and uses this to keep track of nappy stock. It alerts you when you’re getting low so you’re never caught short. Nice touch.
Bit silly. Bit dodgy. Free.
The Silent History is an interactive novel that uses serialization, exploration, and collaboration to tell the story of a generation of unusual children — born without the ability to create or comprehend language, but perhaps with other surprising skills of their own.
The story is told through daily updates, about 1500 words each, delivered through the app each weekday.
For readers who wish to explore the world of the novel in more depth, there’s also hundreds of location-based stories around the world. These can be read only when your device’s GPS matches the coordinates of the specified location.
This is incredibly detailed. The creators have clearly considered the end to end journey of a passenger from the moment a trip is envisaged to actually going through with it (planning a destination, social proofing, boarding, travelling, arriving etc). It basically includes what’s great about a few different services into one package. Nice interface too.
Ikea - Klippbok
Nice way to moodboard different furniture together.
